Since the last time the Vikings and Packers played, the Vikings offense and defense has solidified. The Packers offense has been up and down but the defense has been pretty solid.

However, injuries might be the theme of this game. Bakhtiari, Shields and Raji might all be out of the game. Bulaga returns, but at what level of health? The Viking O-line's inability to keep the Packers from getting sacks was a major theme of the last game. Will that reverse this game? Can the Packers protect Aaron Rodgers?

Stop Peterson and sack Bridgewater; keep Aaron's jersey clean and they should win the game.

Much was made about Matthews not getting any tackles in the last two weeks. But against Peterson, we need to remain disciplined and hold our gaps. Hopefully, Matthews doesn't press too hard to get the tackles, but keeps his gaps instead. Containment is the key to corral Peterson.

Sitton at tackle? Weird.

"Man Up" call on 4th down for the OL. Going to get a yard. Lots of power running sets on this first drive.

Promising opening drive, but really frustrating conclusion. Rodgers missed Quarless wide open right in front of him on 2nd down that would have kept the drive alive and set us up really nice. The 3rd down play was facepalm ... a zero-yard pass attempt to a non playmaker who's predictably tackled for no gain. Better than a sack, I guess.

I predict that in the second half Richard Rodgers will not break the tackle when we throw to him in the flat and we'll have to punt.

Pretty ho-hum first half, offensively. Really haven't done much with the ball at all, so it's been the same thing we've seen for how many weeks now?

Defensively, they look pretty good. Or is it just that the Vikings are playing poorly on offense as well?

Final score prediction: Vikings 16 Packers 17

So a nice charter flight to Dulles or BWI looks like it's in the cards....

Some complete suckitude through 3 quarters tonight. Systemic failure on offense, but it isn't much worse than the last 10 weeks.

Could lose to the entire division at home. Can't blame the fans for letting the boos rain down.

Can it be put into words how awful this offense has been this season? Especially the last 8-10 games. Week after week after week of the same uninspired ineffectiveness. The worst we've seen in 20 years? It's torture to watch.

This offense is scaring no one. The entire defense is 10 yards from the LOS. On the rare occurrence WRs are open, Rodgers is missing them. Just like last 9 games

Unbelievable waste of a timeout there. Totally unacceptable. Just fire this inept coaching staff, please.

NBC's replay of that interception was quite revealing. What on earth was Rodgers thinking throwing inside when his receiver is heading outside where all the open field is? Just a bad throw? Or a bad decision?

In the many things wrong this year, Rodgers just hasn't looked "right" this year. Off target in some games; him and WRs not on the same page during others. Seems like he lost confidence somewhere in the middle of the year (in the Oline, WRs, play calling, whatever). He certainly has been part of the Offensive problem.

This isn't our year. I want to be optimistic, but this just isn't our year. That was frustrating to watch.
