Every weekday, we walk you through what's going on with the Vikings.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED

— The decision to hire Mike Zimmer two years ago has paid off as the Vikings prepare for a clash with Mike McCarthy and the Packers.

— Veteran outside linebacker Chad Greenway is savoring another shot at the Packers, though Greenway hopes to play for the Vikings in 2016.

— It feels like deja vu as the Vikings and Packers meet a second time.

— On this week's Access Vikings podcast, Chip Scoggins joined us to take a deep dive into Sunday's NFC North showdown at Lambeau Field.

BEHIND ENEMY LINES

— Despite their second-half swoon, Packers players are still confident that they can make a run for the Lombardi Trophy in the postseason.

— These Packers have been at their best when they run the ball, too.

— Drafted in the stacked wide receiver class of 2014, second-year Packers wideout Davante Adams has been a big disappointment so far.

TODAY'S VIKINGS SCHEDULE

Zimmer and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be on the podium when the morning walkthrough wraps up at 11:30 a.m. Practice is at 1:30 p.m. Will the Vikings be practicing outside to get ready for the frozen tundra?

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Just how inefficient has the Packers passing game been? Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is 31st in the NFL with an average of 6.69 yards per pass attempt, well below his career average of 8.02. That is lower than Johnny Manziel, Sam Bradford and Blaine Freaking Gabbert. Bridgewater, meanwhile, has been much more efficient, ranking 15th in the league with an average of 7.32 yards per attempt. That's not to say that Bridgewater is better than Rodgers. But it does reinforce that the Packers passing game has been a mess.
