Packers vs. Vikings Week 5 Game Predictions from All Green Bay Packers All the Time
Week 5 Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 3-1 Green Bay Packers 27-23
 I’m more nervous about this game than I should be. The Vikings, even without Adrian Peterson, can still run the ball and the Packers are DEAD LAST in the NFL against the run. I also was high on Bridgewater before the draft and thought he could become the answer the Vikings need at QB. Still, the Minnesota defense is still a work in progress and Aaron Rodgers continues the momentum he found in Chicago though this will be a nail biter all the way.

 Now that’ we’re all relaxed, need we worry about taking the Vikings for granted? Perhaps if they were at full strength, but with their cadre of guys missing due to injuries (and suspensions), I say, “Don’t worry ’bout a thing, cause every little thing gonna be allright.”
Adam Czech 3-1 Green Bay Packers 30-17
 The Vikings might finally have a good coach and a good QB, but it still won’t be good enough to beat the Packers.
Thomas Hobbes 2-2 Green Bay Packers 28-10
 Teddy Bridgewater got hurt at possibly the worse time and now the Packers don’t have to worry about Adrian Peterson; who on the Vikings roster actually scares you? Cordarelle Patterson? Harrison Smith? Even with the Packers playing as inconsistent as they are they will still beat the Vikings 9 times out of 10
Chad Toporski 3-1 Green Bay Packers 35-20
The Packers run defense might be horrible, but the Vikings offense is running on little more than fumes right now. Rodgers and Co. will have another great day, especially being the home team on a short week.
Jason Perone 2-2 Green Bay Packers 38-17
I hoped I was wrong about last week’s prediction and I was, in a big way.  Let’s hope the guys in green & gold don’t prove me wrong this week, too.  The Packers build an early lead and force the Vikes to abandon the run and throw where those opportunistic Packers defensive backs are lurking.  It’s a winning formula for the home team.
Jay Hodgson 4-0 Green Bay Packers 31-28
The Packers’ offense got their groove back, but their defense once again is showing major holes. The Vikings have the potential to be a scary team, but they are on their second running back and potentially third quarterback this season. The Packers defense might hold them. Packers win close.
Cory Jennerjohn 4-0 Green Bay Packers 31-17
Teddy Bridgewater may have wowed the NFL world in his first pro start last week. However, he has a badly injured ankle and even if he plays, his running and throwing abilities will be compromised. Add in that it’s a short week, home teams are 3-1 on Thursday night this season and this game has the makings of a rout.
Andy Burch 2-2 Green Bay Packers 38-20
 The team with the best coaching usually wins the Thursday night games, and as much as we complain about Mike McCarthy and Dom Capers, they will have the Packers ready for the Vikings. Also, the Packers are home so this should be a double win. And finally, the Packers players are better than the Vikings, I don’t see how the Vikings could get a win in this game.

  1. Freak things always happen in these GB/MN games. What scares me about this game isn’t the Vikings but the weather. It’s supposed to be rainy with possible heavy downpours. This is not a game for passing but for running. (Please see Matt Flynn in the first preseason game this year in a heavy downpour how fun it is to pass if you don’t believe me) Could be a very sloppy game with both teams vulnerable to game changing fumbles caused by a wet ball.

    The Packers can’t run so far and the Vikings can. Not sure if Pennel is a mudder but I know Guion isn’t from playing in a dome his entire career. We’re going to need both these big guys since Boyd probably isn’t going to play from what I hear.

    This game will come down to Mike Pennel and Aaron Rodgers. Can Pennel help stop the run and can Rodgers do enough in the passing game despite the predicted heavy rains. I am giving the edge to Green Bay in this one because of big Mike Pennel.
    No score, what’s the point. It all about the W.

    1. This is Eddie time he will get his groove on this game because they hand him the rock 25+ times so he gets his first 100+ yard game tonight Packers win 31-24

      1. I am going to disagree with you on this Jeff. Yes, they will run a lot but I see James Starks getting a few more carries than Lacy in this game. Just an inkling. They’ve been lacking the home run hitter at running back that last four games. They need it this game bad because of the horrible weather. James Starks is their home run hitter.

        1. Maybe your right Ted but I just think if Lacy can get more touches and especially start running north south instead of lateral he will get his rhythm back and be just like last year A Beast!

  2. Stop the run is job #1 for the Pack D. Make Minny one dimensional and a sustained pass rush on Bilgewater and we get a couple of turnovers. Rodgers and the O need to be consistent with where they left off in Chi town with some improvement in the run game. I see 6-7 scoring trips in this game. Pack 37 – Minny Viqueens 13. Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since ’61

  3. Have no idea or feel but cant wait to see what happens tonight. Just happy its at home,

  4. I don’t expect MM to be very patient with Lacy if he isn’t popping quickly and though the weather may warrant a more run play calling,the passing game will be in high need for the win.
    Minn needs only a quick score via a Seattle motion scheme and we’ll be on alert for a possible last possession winner.
    Packers 28-24 🙂

  5. The Packers lost Brad Jones due to injury. Instead of bringing up a LB, Adrian Hubbard, they brought up 301 lb. rookie DT Luther Robinson this afternoon who played for the U of Miami.
    Very Interesting.
    They rank 32nd against the run so try someone else upfront is smart in my estimation. Hope he gets some snaps and shines.
