The Vikings and Packers will meet up sunday with the NFC North division championship on the line. The Packers were able to handle the Vikings 30-13 in their first match up. A game in which most people thought the Vikings were going to win because of their success earlier in the season at that time. However since then both of these teams have been somewhat inconsistent. The Vikings who had a solid lock on this division regressed and let Green Bay back in the picture. Now in the last game of the season everything is at stake as both teams enter the game with 10 wins and 5 losses on the season. If the Vikings want to win this match up Teddy Bridgewater has to step up and play his best football on the big stage. The games are only getting bigger from here on out and Bridgewater has a great opportunity to show what kind of player he can be in this league. You do that by winning football games for division championships and winning games in the playoffs. Who knows, if Bridgewater can hit stride late in the year the Vikings might have a legitimate shot of making a deep postseason run. It all starts with that elite level play at the quarterback position though and it will be up to Teddy Bridgewater to get the job done. For the Packers they have to get pass their offensive woes they’ve been having lately. Usually the Packers score between 28-30 points offensively. However there has been a few match ups where the Packers have had trouble against good defensive lines and as a result struggled offensively in games. That seems to be the key for the Packers offensive success. Make sure they can protect Rodgers upfront. If they can do that, the sky is the limit. If not then this team will stumble like they did against Detroit and Arizona. It will be a good match up and even though Green Bay beat the Vikings in their first match. Look for Minnesota to pull the win out. If they play their cards right they can win, they just need to feed Adrian Peterson and have Bridgewater come up big when the time comes.
