Packers Tickets for Upcoming Lions Game at Ford Field Still Available | Ticket King Inc.

Packers vs Vikings 2016
The Packers won their fifth straight game this weekend, defeating the Minnesota Vikings 38-25. Green Bay was ahead 38-13 before the Vikings scored a couple of late touchdowns. For the Packers, the win sets up a “winner-take-all” showdown in Detroit against the Lions next week, a game that has already been flexed to Sunday Night Football. Packers vs Lions tickets are in demand, as both teams have so much to play for. It’s going to be an exciting night at Ford Field this Sunday!

For the Vikings, that loss ends their season, as they have been eliminated from playoff contention. The Vikings, who started 5-0, are just 2-8 in their last 10 games, and there is a serious rebellion going on against head coach Mike Zimmer right now. If what is being reported is true, and what the players decided to do against the Packers this weekend, their actions do not help matters.

Remember how he was the worst “statistical” quarterback in the league a month into the season? Those naysayers are long gone. He's back. This past Saturday, he put together another elite performance. Rodgers finished the day 28 of 38 for 347 yards and four touchdowns. He made a clear case for MVP, but the four game losing streak earlier in the season may put a damper thinks. We’ll see what the injury to Derek Carr does for voting, and the Cowboys have two rookies that are certainly in contention.

Jordy Nelson played with fire last weekend, finishing the game nine catches, for 154 yards and two touchdowns. Nelson was wide open for most of the first half, and now we know why. Apparently, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer had put together a game plan for Jordy Nelson, and the players decided they were going to do something else. Going against Zimmer’s plan cost the team the game, as they didn’t “see the light” until the second half, and by then it was too late.

It was also important for Adams to bounce back from dropping to easy touchdown passes. He wasn't great, but he wasn't bad either. Adams finished the day with four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown.

With Randall Cobb taking the day off to heal up, Geronimo Allison got the opportunity for more playing time. He finished the game with four catches for 66 yards. Allison gives the Packers another productive player to rotate on and off the field. Since the start of training camp, Allison has gone from eighth on the depth chart to fourth.

On Defense, this is Nick Perry’s best season to date. After a recent injury, it was imperative that the Packers get him back on the field as soon as possible. Perry finished the game with two sacks, bringing his total to 10 on the season.

Ty Montgomery, the converted wide receiver could have had the chance to break out against the Vikings, but Minnesota is a solid team against the run, on the road. Strangely, they are almost a top ten team against the run, on the road.  At home, they seem to give up more yards. With that, fans should not have expected him to pop off 150 yards yet again. The game plan turned into a pass crazy afternoon, and Montgomery wasn’t necessarily the “go to” guy.

During this entire win streak, the Packers have built sizable leads, and let the opposition make some fourth quarter noise, making the game closer than it seems. Dom Capers lightens up on the blitzes late in the game, choosing to protect the backfield, and that can make it seem like the defense is taking their foot off the gas pedal. It’s more about giving up some yardage and making sure that the cornerbacks have help, keeping the quick scores out of reach. Expect the Lions to play their best game of the season this Sunday night. The same goes for Green Bay.
