Bet on the NFLThe Green Bay Packers will be the hot favorites as they greet the Minnesota Vikings to Lambeau Field on Sunday.
The year to date has seen the Green Bay Packers establish themselves as the hottest team in the nfl at the moment with an eight game winning streak. They've been victorious in all of their contests so far this year and will look to continue their domination over the Vikings.
It'll be crucial that the Packers do not let complacency creep into their game as a result of their excellent form and they will look to strengthen defensively. Under defensive coordinator Dom Capers this ought to occur. The attack have been the serious stars of the outstanding run and whilst the defense is also competing reasonably well, Capers has outlined the need for the Green Bay Packers to stay on target this week and is always trying to find improvement from his defensive unit.
The Minnesota Vikings will have to expose the Packers vulnerability to big passing plays which has been their principal weakness all season if the Vikings are to break down that defense and improve on their weak record of 2 wins and 6 losses this season. They've had trouble with the pass rush, managing 19 sacks which places 17th in the nfl. Clay Matthews has contributed only 3 sacks which will disappoint him. This is the Vikings greatest possibility of producing a victory.
The Vikings are missing Chris Cook since his felony arrest and could use his organizational abilities against the Packers. Whilst his legal difficulties are resolved, they'll have to manage without their top 2010 draft pick for the foreseeable future.
The Green Bay Packers have been firing on all cylinders in offense and ought to have enough to get the win against the Minnesota Vikings. If the defense improves to the level which they're effective at operating at the Packers may possibly go all the way this season.
