The Packers are still vying for the NFC's #1 Seed

If the Packers can continue to take care of business, and see Seattle take care of the 49ers, the NFC playoffs will run through Lambeau Field, an advantage that could prove especially fruitful come late January.

Michael Boone with a huge opportunity tonight

With the news that Dalvin Cook will be out, Mike Boone will be the primary recipient of backfield touches. Last week, Boone had plenty of success, rushing for 56 yards and 2 touchdowns. Look for Boone to have ample opportunity to prove his worth, and the Vikings will desperately need him to.

Green Bay Packers: Team Update

Green Bay sits at 11-3 and in control of the division. As of late, the team has been "winning ugly", but to Aaron Rodgers and the gang, a win is a win, no matter how it looks on television. 

"We've got to clean some stuff up, but I wouldn't mind winning ugly all the way to the Super Bowl." Rodgers told the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Minnesota Vikings: Team Update

The big news out of Eagan, Minnesota this week was that Dalvin Cook will be OUT for the matchup. Cook has been one of the most leagues most effective rushers since he entered the league. 

The Evolution of Minnesota's offense has been the biggest change since the teams faced off in Week 2. Kirk Cousins has emerged as a top playmaker and the Wide Receiving Core is finally finding its groove.

The NFC North is essentially on the line

Both the Vikings and Packers have clinched a playoff spot, all that is left to determine is who will be the winner and who will get the coveted home playoff game. 

Kirk Cousins leads the charge for the Vikings, putting up a sneaky elite season at QB and will need to be every bit as efficient as for the Vikings to come up with a victory at home.

Matt LaFleur and the Packers come into Minnesota as the current division leader, and with some help from Week 16 play, are still in contention for a first-round playoff bye. They have everything to play for in this one.
