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

WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED

— Of course winning another rushing title, especially after sitting out most of 2014, would mean something to running back Adrian Peterson.

— For the second straight day, Peterson sat out practice. Nose tackle Linval Joseph and defensive end Everson Griffen were also bystanders.

— Top pick Trae Waynes has not made as much of an impact as other Vikings rookies, but he considers his first NFL season a success.

— Always ready and willing to talk, chatty cornerback Captain Munnerlyn won this year's Korey Stringer Media Good Guy award.

— Here are five stats that stand out heading into Sunday's showdown.

BEHIND ENEMY LINES

— Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari, one of a few banged-up Green Bay offensive linemen, is cautiously optimistic about playing Sunday.

— After two consecutive games without a tackle, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said he needs to find a way to be more impactful.

— The Packers are known for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and their offense, but their defense is always looking to provide some points, too.

TODAY'S VIKINGS SCHEDULE

At 11 a.m., the Vikings get in their final practice before taking on the Packers. The final injury report will come out sometime this afternoon.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

There has been a fair amount of talk this week about stopping Packers running back Eddie Lacy, who has had a lot of success against the Vikings. But Peterson has done plenty of damage in this rivalry, too. In eight career games at Lambeau Field, Peterson has rushed for 882 yards and six touchdowns while piling up at least 97 rushing yards in six of those games. In his last two trips to Green Bay, he rushed for 210 and 146, respectively.
