Game Day: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings – Week 11

The Green Bay Packers are headed to Minnesota to face the Vikings for the first time this season. It’s been a mostly drama-free week for the time, with most of the attention going towards a recent stock sale by the team. Rodgers returned to practice on Thursday, after not being present on Wednesday.

One very interesting fact going into this game is that Aaron Rodgers is the only player ever to have five games with four or more touchdown passes along with zero interceptions against Minnesota. Statistically, the Rodgers/Adams combo has been very successful against the Vikings with Adams claiming TD catches in six of the last eight meetings.

Coming off a win against the Chargers, the Vikings are now 4-5 with the Packers having a 3.5 game lead. Needless to say, the Vikings are in desperate need of a win.

Meanwhile, the Pack has this game and another next week against the Rams until they will have their much needed bye week.

    Well, I’m still not sold on this Packer defense and the Vikings have the players, the coach, and familiarity with the Packers to expose the weaknesses. Also, Aaron Jones is out, so the Vikings can focus on Dillon’s style of running, which is more predictable. The lack of a Packers tight end and a weak offensive line will really hurt against the top sacking defense in the league in the VIkings. Like every year, this is basically the Vikings’ Super Bowl, so I expect them to win. Hopefully Rodgers doesn’t get injured as that’s the goal of both the Vikings and Bears.

      I enjoy reading Deeps post lately.
      Though i expect the Packers to win.
      That isn’t based on any hard facts.
      It’s based solely on the fact i’m a PF4L.

      In other news….Props and respect to Jonathon Taylor.
      I’ve been keeping an eye on him since he got in the NFL.
      This dude is something special.
      .
      Also….for interested Packer fans….
      Tim Boyle starts today for the Lions against the Browns.
      Also….look for him to possibly make another start on Thanksgiving day.

    Because…..i rarely run out of things to talk about as a Packer fan.
    .
    Lets discuss the Packers defense….fluke, or for real?
    FACT: The Packers defense is ranked 3rd in the NFL in defensive scoring at 18 PPG.
    Damn impressive considering the fact that proven playmaker Z Man is out, as is Alexander.
    .
    Some may point out that 5 of the Packers opponents have scoring offenses of 16.7 PPG with a high of 20.6 PPG.
    Which is true but…..
    This is still the NFL…..
    So i have to credit Joe Barry, and also Gute for his pick up of Campbell. You watch that dude and he is just on a mission.
    ****************
    What’s disturbing to me about this team is the offense.
    I’ve broached this subject before, but didn’t get any response as to why it’s dropped off so much this season.
    Asking……why?….what’s different?
    I think it’s fairly obvious but….whatever.
    .
    Here’s the harsh reality……
    .
    The Packers scored an average of 31.8 PPG last season.
    .
    This season….21.6 PPG
    .
    I’m no mathematician, but that’s about 10.2 PPG difference.
    That kind of drop off is almost unheard of.
    Anyone see that as a problem?
    .
    Am i the only one in here who thinks this is an issue?

      No, You’re not alone PF4L. I’ve been concerned about those same problems. Inconsistency on the OL, injuries, and #12 isn’t his usual self. Don’t know if that toe injury is affecting his throwing, but he sure is off on his mid and deep throws. That and the fact he is limited in practices, I think it’s affecting his timing with the receivers. What ever the reasons are, they need to get it fixed. Packers Wire has an article about his toe injury which states his injury could linger for the rest of the season.

        Gee…..i don’t know Mick….
        .
        We have an article in here by Andrew Chitko who doesn’t believe Rodgers even has a toe injury.
        .
        I guess as far as writing articles….you get what you pay for.
        .
        The toe injury is allegedly a hoax says Andrew…
        .
        That’s about as believable as the Packers guaranteeing Gary’s 5th year option…before he got to Green Bay.
        .
        This joint is getting comical…..in a pathetic kind of way.

    Offense played well, very well in that noise box. Defense played well, but gave up more points than usual. Special Teams, yeah……no. What the hell Mason? The snap was down, the ball was turned and the laces were out.

    Give Mason the keys to the rental car and let him drive home on Hwy 29 so he has some alone time to think about it.

    Rodgers was 23/33 for 385 yards with 4 TD’s, 0 picks and 148.4 passer rating.
    .
    So the only question remaining is, how can we blame this loss on Rodgers?
    .
    Did he target Adams 15-20 times to make sure his buddy Adams gets “paid”?
    Did he cause the O line to commit 5 of the 8 Packer penalties?
    Did he not connect on enough deep passes?
    Did he allow the viking offense to score 34 points by selfishly not playing defense?
    .
    GDI…i know this loss was Rodgers fault….
    Help me out here boys.

      Cousins kept throwing the ball up for grabs under pressure and the D did not come up with any picks. Well they had one or 2 until a helmet to helmet hit and another being a drop when hitting the ground. I think the third duress pass was short and a pass interference call was made. Savage is close but just needs to come up with one or two of those three and have his teammates not rough the passer.

    Well what ya know! Kirk Cousins HAS closed the gap between himself and Wisconsin’s very own “Micheal Jordan.” You better hope Minnesota is home on their couch watching us in the playoffs PF4L. Otherwise they maybe kicking our ass come January. Still think they’re not a playoff team? Your such a great talent evaluator. Remember when you said we’d roll the Bengals? Ya know who we really missed today? Rashan Gary. He along with Preston Smith and their constant pass rush have been covering up for that weak secondary all season. But Gary is a wasted pick, right PF4L? He’s not getting enough sacks! Aaron Rodgers finally played like “Michael Jordan” and it only took him until week 11. And I’ll give Rodgers credit for the game wining drive against the 49ers. Where he played pitch and catch with Adams and a 5th round rookie CB. To put that into perspective, that’s like expecting Shemar Jean-Charles to cover Davante Adams. Other than those two games, Rodgers has looked fairly average. The big picture here isn’t the loss. It’s loosing Jenkins to what looks like an ACL injury. This team is snake bitten. I hope Andy bet the Vikings…..

    This game showed how important R. Gary is to this team. The pass rush really was mediocre without him in there. And it made all the difference in this game. Cousins had too much time in the pocket and with the speed of his receivers; he picked the defense apart. Still, the defense had opportunities to get a pick or two but came away empty. As for special teams——— no comment! Also, GB had too may penalties, which hasn’t been common this season. Now Jenkins is gone with a knee injury. I think I can say this for everyone; there are just too many injuries to star players. We desperately need some of those starters back for the stretch run.

      I agree….
      .
      Not sure what Dean was watching, but Cousins was much too comfortable in the pocket.
      .
      What Gary lacks in coverage, he brings everything he has trying to get to the QB. He might not be the big time playmaker guy, But he does supply hurries and pressures. as someone else in here has noted previously.
      His absence was notable, as was Z an and Alexander today.
      Mick is correct, we need our star players for the stretch run.
      We got by without them against some lesser offensive teams, but the vikings have some offense and our lack of playmakers showed today.
      .
      Credit to P. Smith for his 2 sacks, but that was about it for the team.
      .
      I think we saw what Kevin King was made of again today.
      .
      I thought we had the game wrapped up with Savage’s interception at the 2 minute warning, a damn shame he didn’t hang onto the ball.
      .
      Losing this game sucked. The Packers have to learn how to start games coming out of the gate, like last season.
      They looked damn good in the 2nd half, but it’s time to look good in the first half also.
      .
      At the end of the day, except for the loss and the 5 O-line penalty’s, i thought it was a great game to watch.

        This is what i SAW: Savage had like three chances to pick off Cousins. He had one called back because of roughing the passer, one knocked out by Thielen that was in his hands, and the one at the 2 minute warning that moved when he hit the ground. On AT LEAST 2 of those passes Cousins was under quick pressure, no??

          Nobody is saying Cousins was never pressured, but overall he was pretty comfortable in the pocket

            True, Cousins played well; however, if GB comes up with 1 or 2 picks we would most likely be talking about how Cousins gave the game away again.
            .
            At least, wannabe killer would not be telling us how close Cousins is to Arod…

    Well what ya know! Kirk Cousins HAS closed the gap between himself and Wisconsin’s very own “Micheal Jordan.”
    .
    Damn straight Tommi….!!!
    Cousins is 1-2 in the playoffs for his career
    .
    All he has to do to KEEP closing that gap is to…..
    .
    1) Win a SB
    2) Win a SB MVP
    3) Hold the NFL record for best passer rating in the history of the NFL
    4) Hold the NFL record for the best TD/Int ratio in NFL history.
    5) Match Rodgers record holding 402 consecutive passes without an interception
    6) Fastest NFL QB to 400 career passing touchdowns
    7) Most touchdown passes in first 200 starts (418)
    8) Have the lowest career interceptions percentage (1.4%)
    9) Cousins only needs 7 more Pro Bowls to tie Rodgers at 9
    10) Cousins only needs 3 MVP’s to tie Rodgers
    11) Cousins only needs 3 first team ALL-Pro nods to tie Rodgers.
    .
    CLOSING THE GAP!!…Per Tommi logic
    .
    Do this Tommi….keep us informed when Cousins closes the gap….even further than he already has…lol.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Look sweetheart, Kirk Cousins did what Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, and Russel Wilson couldn’t do. He put up 34 points and beat us. If the playoffs were to start today, Minnesota is in as the 6th seed ahead of the Saints who stand as the 7th and final seed. I told you Minnesota was a playoff team, that they would beat us on the road, and that Kirk Cousins has closed the gap. I was right on all three accounts. Just like I told you the Cincinnati Bengals would give us all we could handle, and they did. I also told you Rashan Gary was a big time player and would have a break out year. His loss yesterday was a difference maker. If I tell you it’s going to rain PF4L, you’d be wise to get your umbrella. None of your bullshit stats changes the fact that Kirk Cousins beat us yesterday. It took until week 11 for Aaron Rodgers to play like he did last year. At 38, he’s now too inconsistent and leaves too many points on the field. The only player who’s looked worse this year is Mason Crosby. Going into the playoffs with an old QB and an old kicker is a recipe for disaster. But what do I know, right PF4L? It’s all about those fucking stats.
