Green Bay Packers triumph thanks to Aaron Rogers

The Green Bay Packers are 7-1 straight up and 5-3 against the spread in their last eight road games against division rivals.

Keenum may need to do so without top receiver Stefon Diggs, who was limited in the game against Chicago and missed practice this week with a groin injury.

Dak Prescott, who had touchdown passes on Dallas' first three drives, put the Cowboys in front on an 11-yard touchdown run with 1:13 remaining to cap a 17-play drive that lasted nearly nine minutes.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer has not yet named a starter for Sunday, increasing the challenge for the Packers as they develop a game plan. Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 1,367 yards and 13 touchdowns to lead the offense while Davante Adams has 23 receptions for 285 yards and four scores.

Aaron Jones became the first Green Bay running back with 100 yards in his first start as a rookie since Samkon Gado did so in 2005.

But the most risky component of the Vikings' defense, which is a top-10 unit in both points allowed and rushing yards against, isEverson Griffen, who is arguably the league's best defensive end.

Although the Packers' offense has overcome the odds of constantly playing with a decimated offensive line to this point, stopping the Vikings' collection of pass rushers may be their most onerous assignment to date. The Vikings also have a plethora of speedy linebackers who can get after the passer in a hurry. Minnesota now is tied for 12th in total sacks and will look to add to that total on Sunday.

"When you put together your early thoughts of how you want to start the game, you definitely think of those plays you may try to get him the ball". Murray struggled mightily against the Lions and only averaged three yards per carry before getting benched by management. But at Chicago Monday night, the duo combined for just 38 receiving yards.

A fourth-round draft choice by the Minnesota Vikings in 2010, former USC defensive end Everson Griffen has emerged as one of the better players in the league at his position. McKinnon's speed and versatility can cause some serious matchup issues for the Packers.

"I'm always expecting that".

Martellus Bennett showed the unique element he brings to the Packers' offense with his three catches for 53 yards in Sunday's 35-31 win over Dallas. The Packers also have developed a bit of a running game with rookie running back Aaron Jones, who had 125 rushing yards against the Cowboys last week.

The Vikings offensive line looks much different in 2017 than it did the previous season.
