Gridiron Gab NFC Wild Card Preview: Minnesota At Green Bay

Saturday night the Packers and Vikings go at it in game two of the Saturday slate of Wild Card Weekend.

The two teams played each other just a week ago, with the Vikings winning 37-34 to get the 6th seed of the postseason. This time the teams play in Green Bay, with a lot more on the line.

The Vikings may have the edge in terms of momentum, with Adrian Peterson going nuts on the ground, over 200 yards the last two meetings with the Packers. Look for another big game for AP during his huge 2012 season.

As for the Pack, it will come down to throwing downfield, as Aaron Rodgers is their best player, and he needs to take control of the offense. If Rodgers has a repeat of last week, the Pack will win.

If not, it will come down to the Packers defense, which hasn’t been all that great as of late. Christian Ponder needs to not turn the ball over, and make sure not to make mistakes.

The weather in Green Bay will be cold, 25 degrees at kickoff, but no snow, meaning both teams should be able to play without the weather being a huge factor.

Look for a great NFC North game, with lots of twists and turns. The Pack have the slight edge at home, and will escape with a three-point win.
