With the Vikings’ season almost certainly on the line, you know they are going to come at the Packers Sunday with everything they’ve got. But what they’ve got right now is a team that just doesn’t seem to measure up to the Packers, who should have really benefited from their bye with all the injuries they’ve been forced to deal with.

I see a close game in the first half, with Green Bay pulling away rather handily in the second half. I see Aaron Rodgers throwing at least two TD passes and also picking up key yardage with a few well-timed scrambles. I see Brett Favre, in what he says will be his last game against his old team, also tossing a TD or two, but I think a few turnovers by him will help turn the tide in Green Bay’s favor. I also see Adrian Peterson fumbling for the first time this season at a key moment.

Prediction: Packers 31, Vikings 21
