Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings, NFL Week 16 Monday Night Football. Final battle for the northern division of the NFC. The Packers are in first place for a single victory, but if the Vikings win they would be keeping the division. For now the favorite team for this game are the Packers, but everything is possible. The Packers have been winning for the last three weeks, and the Vikings have not lost games at home this season.
Green Bay Packers: Until the end.
The Packers are in a situation similar to last season. For now the team leads the NFC North with eleven wins and three losses. The last three weeks the team won against Giants 31-13, Redskins 20-15 and Bears 21-13. The last at home. Two of the three losses of the season were on the road. Before winning against the Giants in New York, the Packers lost to the 49ers in San Francisco 8-37.
On the road the Packers are scoring an average of 20.8 points per game, 23.7 rushes with 87.7 rush yards, 21.7 completed passes with 183.3 pass yards. The defense allows up to 21.2 points per game, 23.8 rushes with 103.7 rush yards, 22 completed passes for 274.7 pass yards. The problem on the road is defensive for the Packers. The offense is number 23 of the season, and the number nine defense.
Aaron Rodgers 63.29% for 300 completed passes, 3463 yards, 24 touchdowns and only two interceptions, 100.4 overall rating. Another year with failures in defense for 32 sacks and a loss of 256 yards. Rodgers hasn’t thrown an interception on the road this season.
Minnesota Vikings: Among the top five.
The Vikings at home are undefeated with six wins. But if we analyze the victories at the Vikings’ house, those victories were not against “big teams” of the season: Falcons, Raiders, Eagles, Redskins, Broncos and the most recent against the Lions. These last two games at home to close the season are probably the most dangerous for the team: Packers and Bears.
At home the Vikings are scoring an average of 27.7 points per game, 34.3 rushes with 137.2 rush yards, 20.2 completed passes and 231.2 pass yards. The offense is number five of the season. The team is allowing 14.2 points at home, 21.7 rushes with 91.3 rush yards, 23.8 completed passes for 223.3 pass yards.
Kirk Cousins with a solid season, 70.46% for 291 completed passes, 25 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, 3480 yards, 111 overall rating. Only 23 sacks for 166 lost yards. The last home game Cousins launched for 24 completed passes, 1 touchdown and 242 yards. A single interception at home so far.
