Pregame story


It's the war for the lead in the north. When the Packers and Vikings play each other, more often than, not, it seems to be that way.

These teams have a longtime pedigree of success and heavy competition for the right to own the NFC North.

It's that way again today with the Packers at a by-the-skin-of-their-teeth-and-the-grace-of-Aaron-Rodgers'-right-arm 4-1, and the Vikings at a we-find-a-way-to-win-even-with-our-top-two-quarterbacks-injured 3-2.

This game is filled with intriguing matchups. You can sense it when Green Bay owns the ball - after all, Aaron Rodgers is the game's best quarterback, but he faces a defensive wizard in Mike Zimmer with a talented pass rush.

But Minnesota presents problems that are unusual given their recent run-centered history and the injury issues with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater. Even with Case Keenum behind center, they have a top-10 offense.

In other words, this won't be easy. Particularly in the architectural wonder of U.S. Bank Stadium, with a fan base that loathes Green Bay as much as any fan group ready to bounce decibels off the roof of the stadium.

Survive this game with a win, and the Packers will truly have an accomplishment. And a 5-1 record. And maybe the title of the best in the NFC, not just the NFC North.

For now, at least.

Stay tuned.
