This game and moving forward. The thing to watch is to see if we can get pressure on Bradford. They are down 3 of their original starters on the offensive line, their best three by the way. If our front seven can't dominate them this does not bode well for the playoffs IMO. I know Perry and Matthews are less than 100% but this might be the worst offensive line in football right now and we need to destroy them.

The expectation today: 4 sacks, 10 hits and 15 pressures.

Golf I love your confidence, but the last time the packers faced "the worst o-line in the NFL" it was the colts and the defense barely got a finger on Luck all day, and that was with a full complement of healthy pass rushers if I remember it right.

A bit of a surprise: Randall Cobb (ankle) is inactive for the Packers.

So 12's target in the passing game will include

TEs Cook, Rodgers
WRs Nelson, Adams, Allison, Janis, Davis
RBs Montgomery

On paper, it should be enough to cover for cobb's absence

I suspect it will be limited action though.

Barring fumbles, look for Montgomery and Michael to get about a equal amount of carries today.

For the Vikings, S Harrison Smith (ankle) and WR Stefon Diggs (hip) are active.

As expected, RB Adrian Peterson (groin/foot) is not.

Here are the Vikings' inactives:

QB Tayler Heinicke
WR LaQuon Treadwell
RB Adrian Peterson
FB Zach Line
G Brandon Fusco
G Willie Beavers
DE Stephen Weatherly

I don't know, for a team that plays comfortably indoors (Vikings) ... I would wager that 36 degrees will be factor with them.

Looking forward to seeing how the WR's do without Cobb. He shouldn't have been playing against the Bears last week. Hopefully, we win and he can truly get healthy for a playoff run.

Hawkins behind Dorleant is a bit interesting.

Yeah, not sure what in the world Rodgers saw there to throw those short.
