More than three months after the Vikings stunned the Packers with a Week 1 victory to open the 2022 season, the NFC North rivals square off once again, this time in the chilly Lambeau air. And there is much more at stake. Aaron Rodgers and Co. They are looking for a fourth straight win in the wild card race. Minnesota, meanwhile, is fresh off another close game and looks to prove it belongs among the conference’s top contenders. So far, everything has gone the Packers’ way, with defense and special teams leading 27-3 going into halftime.
Justin Jefferson has given everyone trouble this year, and he got the better of the Packers the last time these rivals met, but Green Bay’s best cover man, Jair Alexander, talked about shutting down the star wideout this week. Will the Packers’ renewed confidence be enough to carry them to victory at home and shake up the NFC playoff standings? Or should Kevin O’Connell’s team make a late comeback and sweep the green and yellow en route to the postseason?
Either way, this is must-see TV. Stay tuned throughout Sunday’s clash for live updates and analysis.
