    The mental chess begins. Is this key person hurting and how bad? See if you can pull film and look for when they got injured…… I just keep hoping and praying our guys stay healthy through the grind of the season. Football is a meat grinder. Only the strong survive.

    I say try and take advantage of the loss of Bigby early on, throwing a deep ball down the sideline that he would have been covering. If we can complete it then we take the early lead and force the Packer D to back off and give AP more lanes to power through.

    clifton is the biggest loss for the packers, they already have allowed 12 sacks. look for the vikings to take advantage of the poor offensive line and the clifton injury and try and rack up the sacks.
