Vikings In Green Bay To Face Packers Today
The Minnesota Vikings (2-8) are in Wisconsin today to face the Green Bay Packers (5-5) for the second time this season. The earlier matchup, four weeks ago in Minneapolis, resulted in a 44-31 Packer win. Earlier in the week, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier named Christian Ponder as the Minnesota starter at quarterback.
After years of quarterback stability with Aaron Rodgers leading the way, his injury has created a QB quandary in Packer-land, with Scott Tolzien getting the start today for Green Bay.
Former Packer receiver Gregg Jennings, who was inactive last Sunday in Seattle with an injured achilles, will start today. Vikings middle linebacker Erin Henderson will miss today’s game because of a ‘personal matter,’ and rookie Audie Cole will start in his place.
Adrian Peterson is listed as questionable for today’s game, but is expected to play. He has run for 190+ yards three times against Green Bay, and is 4-9 all-time against the Pack.
The weather forecast for today at Lambeau is for sunshine and a high of 26. Kickoff is at Noon on FOX 9.
