Packers vs Vikings Game Preview | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers vs Vikings
The Green Bay Packers are coming off a successful start to their season. In week one, they went on the road, and defeated a really good young Jacksonville Jaguars team 27-23, stopping the Jaguars on 4th and 1 late to win the game. This week, they travel to Minnesota to take on theVikings, and this is a significant game because the Vikings are opening U.S. Bank Stadium. Here is T.J. Bryce's preview.

Can Aaron Rodgers improve on his week one performance? Aaron Rodgers had an average but good enough start to his season, going 20-34 for 199 yards and two touchdowns. He will need to play better this week for the Packers to win this game.

What about Eddie Lacy? Eddie Lacy's well documented off-season saw him lose almost 30 pounds of fat. Lacy came back slimmer and better. He opened his 2016 campaign with a 14 carry, 61 yard performance in week one in Jacksonville. Not the worst start, but not really what he was looking for. He will need to play better.

Can Davante Adams continue to build positive momentum? Let's be honest, Davante Adams had a nightmare 2015. Statistically, he was the worst receiver in the league. He caught one touchdown pass all last season. In week one, he had three catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. It was a decent, positive start. He will need to build on that.

What about Jordy? Jordy Nelson, in his “grand return” had six catches for 32 yards and a touchdown. T be honest, it wasn't that great. So many people are expecting this man to return to form just because. I say let's see what happens.

Can the secondary rebound from its shaky week one performance? This is supposed to be one of the best secondary line up in the league. In week one, Blake Bortles went 24 of 29 for 320 yards and one touchdown to go along with one interception. Bortles is one of the rising stars in this league, so we have to give him that. Playing a Minnesota team whose passing game at the moment is almost nonexistent will help correct some of those issues. What will not help is the absence of Sam Shields, who is doubtful as he is still in concussion protocol.

Final Score: All the calculations say the Packers win this game by 10 points, 27-17. The incalculable factors say that the Vikings will win because they are opening a new stadium and the emotion will be pouring out of the building. I live by my calculations, and I will die by my calculations.

Final Score: 27-17 Packers, although I'm not confident.
