Rival Vikings Will Be Motivated Sunday



For the first time since 1992, the Packers will close out their regular season at Minnesota when they play the Vikings this Sunday. The Packers improved to 11-4 on the season with a 55-7 victory over Tennessee on Sunday. Green Bay is currently the number two seed in the NFC and can clinch a first-round bye for the second straight season with a win at Minnesota. The Vikings need to win Sunday to get into the NFC playoffs as a wild card.

This marks the fourth time in the history of the series (since 1961) that the two clubs have met in a season finale at Minnesota, with the other meetings coming in 1984, 1991 and 1992. It is the first time the teams have met in the regular-season finale since 1996.

The 1996 meeting at Lambeau Field was the last time both teams entered the matchup with nine or more wins. Green Bay came into the ’96 finale with a 12-3 mark and the Vikings entered the game at 9-6. The clubs played earlier this month in Week 13 (Dec. 2), as this marks the first time in the series that both games have been in December.
