About the Packers record: 4-2
• The Packers have at least 350 yards on offense in their past nine games, the second-longest active streak in NFL.
• Green Bay has a 100-yard receiver in five of its past six games despite injuries to three of its top four targets. WR James Jones (knee) is questionable; WR Randall Cobb (leg) and TE Jermichael Finley (bruised spinal cord) are out.
• Rookie RB Eddie Lacy (right) has 301 rushing yards in the past three games, most in the NFL during that span.
• The Packers have at least three sacks in three consecutive games.
• Green Bay held opponents to fewer than 85 rushing yards in each of the past four games.
Player speak: QB Aaron Rodgers
• Rodgers has a 116.4 rating against the Vikings, best in the NFL by a QB against a single opponent since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.
• In nine of his past 11 October starts, Rodgers has a passer rating of at least 100.
• On Finley’s absence: “The next guy up has to step up and play well. We’re going to use a few different guys at that position.”
• On his success against the Vikings: “For whatever reason, there’s been times where we’ve been able to execute pretty well against those guys. We’ve had some battles over the years.”
Coach speak Mike McCarthy
• McCarthy, 49, is in his eighth season as an NFL head coach. He’s tied with Mike Holmgren for third in franchise history for most career victories (including playoffs) with 84.
• On the improved run offense (sixth in the league, gaining 134.7 yards per game): “It starts up front. Our offensive line has been practicing together and performing up front. We have continuity there and playing at a higher level than in the past.”
• On Adrian Peterson’s success (508 rushing yards in three games) vs. Green Bay last season: “He broke a lot of tackles against us. Our gap integrity and tackling will definitely be the focus this week.”
