What You Need to Know About the 121st Meeting Between Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers
The Minnesota Vikings will look to get payback against the Green Bay Packers from a Week 1 loss, but they will enter as a touchdown underdog.
Green Bay (5-1) will host Minnesota (1-5) at Lambeau Field on Sunday at noon. This meeting, unlike the many others between the two teams, will be a little different with no fans in the stands at Lambeau Field due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Packers are entering the "Border Battle" with the Vikings off a win over Houston last Sunday. Green Bay is off to a hot start and looking to improve its NFC North divisional record to 3-0.
Minnesota is in a completely different situation. The 2020 season hasn't been close to preseason expectations with the Vikings stumbling to a 1-5 start. With a chance to head into the bye week with some momentum, Minnesota instead was blown out by the Atlanta Falcons at home 40-23. After one week off with the bye, the Vikings now enter a second meeting with Green Bay as seven-point underdogs.
