Packers try to continue dominance vs. division foes

Aaron Rodgers is playing out of his mind after a slow start

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers win NFC Offensive Player of the Week after win over Cowboys

Offensive coordinator: Pat Shurmer, first full season (stepped in halfway through last season for the Vikings).

The Cowboys, on the other hand, went on to build a team that would win three championships over a four year span so in a way, the Vikings were responsible for all of those gut-wrenching losses to Dallas in the 1990's. Justin McCray is a first-year player with three National Football League starts. But at Chicago Monday night, the duo combined for just 38 receiving yards.

It wasn't simply that Aaron Rodgers threw the ball to Davante Adams in such a crucial situation, although that was important. In four games this season, Keenum has four passing touchdowns and zero interceptions while completing 64% of his passes. Case Keenum completed 17 of 21 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown while Sam Bradford added 36 yards in 5-for-11 passes. He's not going to create many big plays, but he's also not going to put his team in a bad position. Green Bay exacted revenge in 2010, winning both meetings and eventually winning Super Bowl XLV. After setting an National Football League record last season by completing 74% of his passes, the Vikings hoped that Bradford would be able to carry this team to a playoff berth as well as a potential NFC North division title. Minnesota is averaging 18.6 points and 327.4 yards allowed per game on defense while the offense is 19.8 points and 373.6 yards per game. The Packers are 4-1 and coming off of a huge road win over the Cowboys. This game is 80 percent mental, 20 percent physical.

The Packers are hopeful to have left offensive tackle David Bakhtiari back for this game for the first time since opening week.

When Packers receiver Jordy Nelson will play next is unknown. If Bridgewater is still the player we remember from 2015, the Vikings could be very risky moving forward with him at the helm. Nelson will likely see a healthy dose of Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who has forged his reputation as one of the best in the NFL. King's absence would force more snaps for Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, both of whom have had their struggles so far in this young season. He's like a running back.

When asked about the start during the regular Vikings QB availability Wednesday, Keenum smiled.

In the NFC Central - and perhaps the entire NFC - beating Rodgers and the Packers equates to beating the best.

But it's another Aaron that most eyes will be on as Aaron Jones looks to follow up a magnificent performance against the Cowboys last week. "I guess over time you get to the right page to where he's (thinking), 'I throw him the ball, he's going to get it, ' as opposed to 'I hope he gets it'". "I just work at it each and every week and get a better and better get off".

Staying in the moment and taking things one game at a time is standard operating procedure in the NFL. The Packers rookie running back, Aaron Jones, also made the most of his opportunities, rushing 19 times for 125 yards and a touchdown.

He's not the biggest or fastest by any stretch, but his elusiveness is tough on defenses. Getting Aaron Jones going early will help alleviate the incoming fire.

But game planning for the opposition's defense is only half the battle since the offense, while hardly a world beater, has its own share of performers that can make loyal Cheeseheads sweat the final outcome in three short days.

With 10 sacks in 15 career games against the Packers, Griffen has gained the respect of Rodgers.

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is a match up problem for any defender.

"I think that's what experience brings and experience is priceless, in the offense you're running and with the guys you're running with".
