Packers - Vikings: Week 17 Preview

December 31, 2021

The Packers are taking on the Vikings on Sunday night with a chance to potentially lock up the #1 seed in the NFC as well as eliminate Minnesota from the playoffs. We start with some discussion on how the Packers will manage their roster on Sunday with the number of guys currently on the COVID list as well as injury report. Next, we dive right into the key matchups and expected game plans for the Packers offense against the Vikings, starting with highlighting how getting Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon, and the run game going could make a big difference (00:03:40).  We also discuss how having Marquez Valdes-Scantling back could be a shot in the arm for the pass game, and whether the Packers may have to add some different personnel groupings and play call wrinkles due to being short handed at TE (00:15:25).  After the break, we look at how the Packers defense can fix their run defense against Delvin Cook, keying on our defensive line and outside linebackers (00:27:19).  We also look at our secondary matchups, particularly our safeties covering over the top against Justin Jefferson and the importance of taking advantage of opportunities Kirk Cousins presents for turnovers.  Next, we discuss what options the Packers have on Special Teams, particularly in the return game and what we will do at Punter/holder if Corey Bojorquez is unable to go (00:47:40).  Lastly, we finish with our nominations for our #BeLegendary X – Factors, (00:59:05) and score predictions for the game.
