The best team in the NFC North will faceoff against the worst team in the division — no, not the Lions. The other worse team in the division. It’s the game no one has been waiting for: The 5-1 Packers against the 1-5 Minnesota Vikings.
As noted below, RB Aaron Jones will not be participating in this game. Also, despite practicing a bit this week, WR Allen Lazard will also not be participating. Lazard is young and learned the hard way about sacrificing his body so frequently on plays. Now that he has cemented his place on the team, he should play slightly more conservative when he does return(most likely next week).
Billy Turner will be starting for the absent LT David Bakhtiari.
On the other side of the ball, Vikings’ RB Dalvin Cook is expected to play today after previously being listed as questionable with a groin injury. Cook is averaging 98 rushing yards a game and is one of the few good things going for Minnesota offense right now.
