Realistically the two things that could derail the Pack are turnovers and special teams. GB is not turnover prone and the Vikes would need to come out +2 in TOs I think to win. Not likely. More likely is the Packer special teams reverting to form and costing the team lots of field position, maybe as much as 100 yards, and maybe even giving up points directly. At a minimum ST will keep the Vikings in this game into the fourth quarter. Go Pack Go!

There's a third thing that could derail the Packers and is probably just as likely as the two that you mention: The Vikings running the ball at will, dominating time of possession and scoring enough to win.

What, quite frankly, scares me about this game is the Queen's no name quarterback.
The Packers have a history, over the years, of making no name quarterbacks look like Hall of Famers.

TBH, I was happy to see that Michael Pierce will not play for the Vikings. He missed the last game as well. Pierce is a high quality DT who would have made it more difficult to run while providing at least some push.

Cameron Dantzler being out is also big. AR should look to see who MacKensie Alexander is covering on every play, because that's a mismatch for even most of GB's not so superduper #2 through #6 WRs. Interesting that WR Chris Blair can't find the field.

Cousins and Thielen on offense are the biggest losses for MN. Griffen and Hunter miss time, so that's not a huge surprise. MN has a ton of people out or on IR.
