Seven days after Rodgers got injured, then returned to lead the Packers to an unbelievable comeback victory against the Chicago Bears, Green Bay enters yet another huge divisional showdown at home.
Like Green Bay, Minnesota also enters this game at 1-0 after defeating the San Francisco 49ers last week.
Mike Pettine’s defense will face a tough challenge from the Vikings offense. The addition of Kirk Cousins at quarterback is a game changer, as is the return of second-year running back Dalvin Cook.
This will be a big test of the Packers’ pass rush, which has the chance to take control of the game against the Vikings’ struggling offensive line.
This game will also show us how far the new-look secondary has come. Up against the likes of Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph, the Packers will have to be at their best defensively.
The biggest key to this game is keeping Rodgers upright, should he play. Even if he’s on the field, the two-time MVP won’t be at 100 percent. He’ll need to be more cautious with the football and throw it away when he’d normally scramble, and the protection will need to be as strong as it was in the second half of last week’s game.
Green Bay survived a tough test at home last week. It gets even tougher on Sunday with the Vikings visiting Lambeau.
