ABOUT THE Packers RECORD: 5-5

• The Packers have lost three consecutive games since defeating the Vikings 44-31 on Oct. 27.

• QB Aaron Rodgers (broken left collarbone) will miss his third consecutive game. Scott Tolzien (five interceptions in the past two games) will make his second career start.

• Green Bay had a season-low 55 rushing yards in a 27-13 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

• The Packers have won seven of their past eight games against the Vikings (including playoffs).

• Green Bay has won 10 of its past 11 regular-season games at Lambeau Field against NFC North opponents.

• Sixteen of the past 22 contests between the Packers and Vikings have been decided by seven points or fewer.

Player Speak LB Clay Matthews

• Matthews had four tackles in Sunday’s loss to the Giants.

• Matthews missed four weeks because a broken right thumb he suffered on Oct. 6 against the Lions.

• On team’s three-game losing streak: “We’re not going to use any excuses and obviously we need to play better, but we got a great opportunity in front of us.”

• On Rodgers’ absence:  “I think everybody knew how valuable he was when he won MVP. … Obviously there was going to be a drop off, but that’s no excuse for dropping three straight.”

Coach Speak Mike McCarthy

• The 50-year old McCarthy is in his eighth season as Packers head coach. He’s 12-4 all-time against the Vikings.

• On Tolzien:  “I think he’s done a lot of good things for us as far as his individual performance. The one outlier is the interceptions. That’s an area of focus for us.”

• On run offense:   “Our run game has been effective this year. It’s something we need to pick back up. We haven’t run the ball like we needed to in the last two weeks.”

• On injuries this season:  “Every NFL season is different. I don’t play fantasy football. We know the challenges that come each and every week. We’ve had different challenges this year than other years.”
