Bet on the NFLThis is a pivotal game for the NFC North, as the Vikings are currently 2-3 and the Packers 3-3. They are both looking for a win in order to help them catch up to the Chicago Bears.
Green Bay is coming off two consecutive losses, last week to Miami at 20-23 and another close loss to the Redskins in Week 5 at 13-16. The Vikings should have a bit more momentum as they took the win v.s the Cowboys last Sunday at 24-21, Week 5 was also a losing week however, losing 20-29 to the Giants.
The Green Bay Packers welcome back NFL sacks leader Clay Matthews just in time for the game vs. the Vikings this weekend. He missed a game due to a hamstring injury, and coach Mike McCarthy was optimistic Friday that Matthews will play, although he is still listed as questionable in the injury report.
Speaking of hamstring injuries, the Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin has been added to the injury report Thursday with a hamstring injury, and is listed as probable.
Sportsbook currently lists the Vikings vs. Packers point spread at Green Bay -2.5 points. This will be Favre’s second return trip to Green bay, playing incredible in the previous two games, completeing 70% of his passes for 515 yards, 7 touchdowns and no interceptions.
