Spotlight Game:

Green Bay Packers - Minnesota Vikings

A battle for first place in the NFC North shapes up as the big game of Week 11.

The struggling Packers, losers of their past three games, comes into Sunday one-game back of the surprising Vikings. Green Bay has been struggling on both sides of the ball and Aaron Rodgers has not been the same quarterback since the overwhelming defeat at the hands of the Denver Broncos in Week 8. The run game has been stalled and the effects of the loss of wide receiver Jordy Nelson has become more apparent.

The Vikings were a popular pick for a wild card this season. However, the Vikings have put together a stingy defense to go along with an offense that has been clicking with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback and the always dominant Adrian Peterson at running back. Minnesota has a chance to put some distance between themselves and the Packers with a win at home on Sunday. A loss would put Green Bay back in control of the division with a Week 17 date at Lambeau Field coming.
