Vikings' next opponent: Green Bay
- October 17, 2011 - 1:17 AM
NEXT OPPONENT: GREEN BAY
The Packers (6-0) are the highest-scoring team in the NFL and the lone unbeaten after Sunday's victory over the Rams. Aaron Rodgers has 17 touchdown passes, only three interceptions and a league-leading 122.5 passer rating.
GREEN BAY'S WEEK 6
Green Bay 24, St. Louis 3
Rodgers' 93-yard bomb to Jordy Nelson was the play of the day at Lambeau Field. Rodgers had three TD passes and the Green Bay defense shut down Sam Bradford and St. Louis.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Packers D-backs banged up
Pro Bowl safety Nick Collins (neck) is out for the season, and safety Morgan Burnett is playing despite a broken right hand. Cornerback Sam Shields sustained a head injury on Sunday.
The Packers offense is so strong that it was criticized Sunday for not scoring in the second half. A Vikings victory this weekend would be an upset of major proportions. Outlook: Horns down
