Week Six Green Bay Packers Keys To Victory

Week Six Green Bay Packers Keys To Victory

Rodgers had another one of his last-minute wins last weekend and Dallas, and while everyone in Minnesota was buzzing about a duck/goose kerfuffle, everywhere else they were focused on once again, Rodgers raising the level of his team that has been weathering their own share of injuries.

Offensive coordinator: Pat Shurmer, first full season (stepped in halfway through last season for the Vikings).

"I don't know if I've ever figured him out", Zimmer told Packers media. If he cannot go, the Packers could be forced to play Justin McCray - and he's a liability. But at Chicago Monday night, the duo combined for just 38 receiving yards. "Freeman ran the ball in for the winning touchdown in overtime as ABC's Al Michael's said 'He did WHAT?!"

The Packers are the only team with four touchdowns on opening drives this season. Case Keenum completed 17 of 21 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown while Sam Bradford added 36 yards in 5-for-11 passes. "That's our brother that's running the ball, so as long we get into position to get in front of our man and don't allow our defender to make the play, a lot of times plays like that will spring for more than they're supposed to". The Packers have won the division title five of the last six seasons.

The Vikings hold a 3-2 record after beating the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. If Minnesota hopes to be successful on Sunday it will need to have a strong day on defense against this potent Packers offense. "That's why we're 4-1 and not 2-3". And it's even hard to determine the Packers' biggest threat. If Bridgewater is still the player we remember from 2015, the Vikings could be very unsafe moving forward with him at the helm.

The silver-lining for the Vikings is the availability of Jordy Nelson. So far this season, he's secured 29 receptions for 392 yards and is on pace for nearly 100 catches and over 1,200 yards.

Tackle Rashod Hill, who missed the past two games with a knee injury, returned to practice on a limited basis. King's absence would force more snaps for Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, both of whom have had their struggles so far in this young season. His reaction time, his ability to scramble-and that just gives you another dimension.

Vikings quarterback Case Keenum was just plain stumped when asked about the signal caller that has vexed Minnesota like no other.

Keenum has yet to play on a team with the talent the Vikings now have, and he's looked good both on film and statistically (he's completed 64.5 percent of passes so far this season).

With Bradford not practicing Wednesday, Keenum looked likely to get the start in Minnesota's biggest home rivalry game of the season.

Even in his 24th year in the National Football League, he's still prone to anxiety figuring out how to defend the quarterback Zimmer said is essentially the best he's ever faced.

But it's another Aaron that most eyes will be on as Aaron Jones looks to follow up a magnificent performance against the Cowboys last week. Montgomery's status was unknown as of the time this was written so look for a healthy does of Jones again this week. "Obviously, that's a team where he'll get carries and it's more of a run style that he's familiar with, " Rudolph said.

Oh yes, Mike Zimmer was watching Sunday when Rodgers took down the Cowboys with a brilliant, game-winning drive in the final 1:13 of the game, and the defensive coordinator in him cringed. As great as Aaron Rodgers has been, he has also been sacked 19 times, tied with Carson Palmer for top in the league. Once he breaks contain, defenses tend to freeze and fixate on Rodgers rather than staying with their original assignments. Getting Aaron Jones going early will help alleviate the incoming fire.

With Cook out, the Vikings will try to throw their way to a win.
