N-F-C North Title On The Line In Green Bay
Green Bay, WI (Learfield sports) -- Both Minnesota and Green Bay have earned a spot in the playoffs and neither can claim a first-round bye. Nonetheless, you can't beat playing your cross-border rival for first place in the N-F-C North on the last day of the season and on the national stage of Sunday Night Football.
The Vikings and Packers will have to deal with a raw north wind and temperatures barely out of the teens, but Lambeau Field will be filled and rocking tonight. The two teams are tied with 10-5 records, but Minnesota comes in with more momentum.
Green Bay's offensive line is hurt by injuries, but Minnesota's All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson has some injury problems of his own. Kickoff is at 7:30 P-M.
