Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
It’s not difficult to identify the biggest mismatch in this critical NFC North showdown. It all starts with the Vikings rushing attack against the very vulnerable Packers run defense.
Green Bay ranks 25th in Football Outsiders’ rush defense DVOA and are allowing 4.6 yards per rush, which also ranks 25th in the league. Mike Pettine’s defense simply doesn’t get much push up front, ranking 31st in adjusted line yards and dead last in stuff rate, per Football Outsiders.Plus, the Packers also like to run a lot of heavy dime which means they don’t have much bulk at the second level with a very thin linebacker corps.
That’s not ideal against a Minnesota team that runs it at one of the highest frequencies in the NFL. The Vikings average 31.0 rush attempts per game — the third-highest clip in the NFL.
