Packers vs Vikings: The Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings aren’t accustomed to having any of their biannual clashes be a showdown for second place. Expect tight end Jimmy Graham to be active Sunday night for the Green Bay Packers.
Week 12 of the 2018 NFL season will feature a marquee Sunday Night Football game on Sunday, November 25, 2018 when the Green Bay Packers take on the Minnesota Vikings at Bank of America Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Kickoff is slated for 8:20 p.m. EST. Here’s how to watch.
The Packers are led by head coach Mike McCarthy, quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Aaron Jones. Green Bay is coming off a Week 11 loss to the Seahawks and enters the game with a 4-5-1 record.
The Vikings are led by head coach Mike Zimmer, quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver Adam Thielen. Minnesota is coming off a Week 11 loss to the Bears and enters the game with a 5-4-1 record.
Here’s how our experts see the game playing out.
Zack Rosenblatt: Green Bay continues to look simply average. Mike McCarthy is likely coaching for his job the rest of the way. He won’t be helped against the Vikings. Vikings 28, Packers 24.
Ryan Dunleavy: Is this a NFC Wild Card elimination game? Feels like one. Bigger disappointment: The Packers wasting another Aaron Rodgers season? Or the Vikings falling back signing quarterback Kirk Cousins to be their missing piece. Packers 28, Vikings 23.
Matthew Stypulkoski: Both of these teams have underwhelmed preseason expectations, which had them among the top teams in the NFC. The Vikings are trying to cling to the final playoff spot, while the Packers try to climb their way back into the postseason picture. Vikings 24, Packers 17.
