First of all, Happy Thanksgiving Vikings fans!
Vikings fans have a lot to be thankful for at this point in the season, with a 9-1 record and a firm hold on the NFC North. Speaking of the NFC North, those of us who eat today’s big meal around the lunch hour will get some Vikings-relative football to go with the turkey and potatoes and stuffing and corn and green bean casserole and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.
The Green Bay Packers will play the Detroit Lions today at Ford Field, with kickoff slated for 11:30 CT. It’s looking like former Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper will get the start for Detroit because Matthew Stafford is dealing with a shoulder injury.
Speaking of injuries, Green Bay was stung by a couple of big ones last week. CB Al Harris was placed on injured reserve and DE Aaron Kampman appears to be lost for the season as well. But the Packers are riding a 2-game winning streak and are favored to win today. A 3rd win a row will keep them squarely in the hunt to qualify for the playoffs.
There are 2 other NFL games later today, as Oakland visits Dallas in the afternoon game and the Denver Broncos host the NY Giants in the night game.
