Keenum likely to start for Vikings for Rodgers, Packers

But there was one that stuck in Jones' mind: his second-quarter 9-yard catch along the left sideline - the hard, diving grab that was upheld by a replay review and prompted analyst Troy Aikman to say on the Fox broadcast, "That would've been a great catch if that was Jordy Nelson".

The Packers have dominated the entire NFC North division over the last decade as is indicated by their individual records against each team. Rodgers' intangibles aside, the Vikings have plenty going in their favor as they try to reverse the trend.

- The fast, clever and tough defense Minnesota has had in four seasons with head coach Mike Zimmer has given the Vikings as good a chance to beat rival Green Bay as they've had since Aaron Rodgers became Packers starting quarterback in 2008. So just that and being a good sport and contributing any way I can.

Sports Interaction bettors are squarely on Green Bay's side, with 93 percent of the action in favor of the Packers. That would be big trouble for Rodgers and Co. Green Bay has won five of the last seven at Minnesota. The key for those two is maintain lane discipline and not allow Rodgers to slip past them when they pin their ears back.

This one will be close, but a Packers offense playing loose and with flexibility is scary. This is not the unit right now that can get into a legit shootout with Aaron Rodgers and make him pull out the dramatics the way he did against the Cowboys.

Congratulations once again, Aaron Rodgers.

I'm not even sure it matters whether Sam Bradford or Case Keenum starts for the Vikings.

"He had some bumps as you always do to start the season, but I thought the Dallas game was his best game this year", McCarthy said of Rodgers, who has 13 touchdown passes and three interceptions in five starts.

Location: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minn. He's by far the most talented quarterback in the NFL and is the reason why the Packers are one of the best teams in football. (It feels like Teddy Bridgewater played for them barely more recently than Fran Tarkenton did). Never mind the degree of difficulty of that throw, but Rodgers' ability to threaten the defense as a runner gets defenders to glue their eyes on him while he continues to scan the secondary. Playoff probabilities are based on 20,000 simulations of the season and will update after each game.
