Setting The Table For Vikings vs. Packers On Monday Night Football

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 10, 2011 – 7:21 am

Vikings vs. Packers is ordinarily well-worthy of the prime time spotlight. But add in an undefeated defending Super Bowl champion, a QB in Aaron Rodgers playing at an extremely high level, the rise of Christian Ponder as the starting QB in Minnesota, the NFL’s best RB in Adrian Peterson and then the setting of Lambeau Field, and you have a matchup that is perfect for the grand stage of Monday Night Football.

The Vikings and Packers will meet for the 102nd time in their series history this Monday night in a contest that will mark the Vikings 55th MNF game, and the 8th meeting between the clubs on MNF. The Vikings are 26-28 all-time on MNF, including a 4-3 record against the Packers and an 11-19 record overall on the road.

Another interesting twist to Monday night’s Vikings-Packers tilt is that it marks the second contest between the two teams in just 3 weeks, and both the Vikings (at Carolina) and Packers (at San Diego) have played just one other game since their last meeting on October 23; the Vikings had their bye week last weekend and Green Bay was on bye during Week 8.

There’s not a whole lot different about the Packers from the last time we poked and prodded at them in the days leading up to a showdown with the Vikings. Rodgers is still the NFL’s highest-rated passer (129.1) and he’s still completing an absurd percentage of his passes (up to 72.5% now). Green Bay’s offense is 4th in yards per game (416.4), 3rd in passing yards per game (312.0) and 1st in scoring at 34.4 points per game. The offensive line has battled injuries and continues to protect Rodgers adequately, and the running game is good enough to force opposing defenses to respect it. Remember, the Packers salted away their victory over the Vikings 3 weeks ago by rushing for 55 yards on 6 carries during the game’s final drive.

What we discussed 3 weeks ago regarding Green Bay’s defense remains true today: if there is vulnerability on this Packers team, it’s defensively. Currently they rank 30th in total defense (399.6 yard allowed per game) and 31st in passing defense (299.6 yards allowed per game). Last week in San Diego, the Packers allowed Chargers QB Philip Rivers to go 26 of 46 for 385 yards and 4 TDs, and three weeks ago they allowed Ponder, in his first career NFL start, to pass for 219 yards and 2 TDs.

The reason Green Bay is able to overcome a few holes on defense is two-fold. First, their elite and explosive offensive production, led by Rodgers and the passing game, puts pressure on the opponent’s offense to match their scoring. And secondly, this leads to a great turnover margin for Green Bay, which just feeds the offense even more. Green Bay is +11 in turnover margin this season and their defense is tied for 2nd in the NFL and tied for 1st in the NFC with 19 takeaways. Remember, future Hall of Fame CB Charles Woodson intercepted two Ponder passes in these teams’ last meeting. Another playmaker to watch is outside LB Clay Matthews. Teams are doing a nice job of covering him up this year, but he’s coming off a 13.5-sack season last year and if the Vikings aren’t careful, he can ruin the game.

Monday night does not present an impossible task for the Vikings, as daunting as the matchup might seem. In fact, it presents a great opportunity for the Vikings, as both Ponder and Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier go to Lambeau Field for their first time in their respective roles. If Frazier and Ponder can get the Vikings to be competitive against the Packers while they’re the undefeated defending champions at Lambeau Field on MNF, then that bodes well for the future of this franchise.

Over the next several weeks with the stadium issue on the front burner in Minnesota, we’ll have a piece of stadium information posted after each vikings.com Blog entry.

Stadium FAQ – What is the latest on the new stadium?
In May 2011, the Vikings and Ramsey County agreed on a partnership to build a new stadium at the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) property in Arden Hills. With a budget deficit facing the State during the regular session, the Vikings were told to wait until a budget resolution was achieved, something that didn’t happen until a three-week government shutdown and a June special session.  As a result, the stadium issue was not addressed; however, on Monday, October 17, Governor Dayton expressed his intent to call a special session on November 21 with the sole focus being a “People’s Stadium.” The Vikings continue to work with State leaders on a final stadium proposal, and the team is hopeful the issue will be resolved this November.

    All the pundits are saying “NO WAY IN H-E-L-L THE VIKINGS CAN WIN THIS GAME”; I think they are full of it. It will all depend on if the D-Fence can show up and do their job. Ponder and Peterson will do theirs. Go Vikings, Vikings 38 Packers 31, have a great day one and all.

    I agree with you DRS. IF the O-line can protect Ponder, and the Secondary can show some semblance of getting to the ball and protecting against the pass, and Allen getting pressure on Rodgers, we stand as good of a chance as any team at beating them. I do think it will be a great game and the pundits forget that we are the only team besides Saints to get within 6pts. of this team (Ponders first interaction with this team). I would love nothing better than to “rub salt into the wound” if that happens Monday night. GO VIKES !!!!!!!!!

    Toad, why don’t you hop back into that sewer you came from..

    Let us see if Frazier will have some trick wildcat plays for Joe Webb! Put Joe in the backfield next to Peterson..Ponder takes the ball from center, laterals it back to Webb, who in turn, flings it down field to either Harvin, Jenkins, or one of the other open receivers…Of couse if Frazier is ever going to use Webb, why not Monday Night? What the Hill is he waiting for, next year maybe??

    Sorry guys, die hard Vikings fan here and I will be cheering for a win but all these posts are a little too optimistic.

    We played the best game we could against them last time and still came up short, at home too. AP goes for 175 yards, Ponder 5-7 on third downs and throws 250 yards and 2 TDs, Allen gets both his sacks on Packer third downs inside our territory to force field goals which don’t happen often for them. We played about is well as we can and the Packers didn’t have a stellar game on D or on 3rd downs and still beat us.

    Now we are at their place, suppose to be decent weather, they just had a real bad Defensive game so that is being harped on all week to clean up the communication and Rodgers offensive is consistently awesome.

    I’m hoping we can just get as close as last time to be respectable on national TV.

    I have to agree with most of Hartmann’s comments, as much as I don’t like them. The good news is that Ponder does look good and the future doesn’t look as depressing as it once did.

    But Vikes have to play their best football game of the year and the Packas have to faulter a little just for this to be close.

    Go Vikes!!!!

    Really? Come on. I know this is a Vikings blog but nobody else in the nation is looking forward to this game outside of Packer/Viking fans. Or maybe those that just want to see the reigning and future Super Bowl Champs.

    Its like the midwest wanting to watch Steelers vs Browns on national TV. Or, for this year, the 49ers vs anybody else in their division. Yuck!! They should have saved the Packers monday night game for a good team and played this on Sunday in normal time slot, they had to know the Vikes were going to be average this year.

    You say it best, they do suck. Maybe someday us Packer fans will get sick of winning, or sick of beating the Vikings. It’s just too fun giving you guys cr@p, it can’t be helped. You promising a win is like promising someone that they won’t get devoured if they enter the polar bear exhibit at the zoo.

    Favre is a hall of famer and gave us 16 awesome years, why wouldn’t I have provided the same support as I do now for Rodgers. Dah….. Please work on your comebacks.

    And that is great, give Allen some sacks and AP some yards, they are very good players. But it takes a team and the Vikes can’t get it done this year, no how.

    And I like to always check what the opposing team is writing about the Packers. You can’t just read your own teams Rah Rah articles, its good to broaden your perspective their, my boy. I listen to KFAN quite a bit too, usually more Danny B though.

    And as Hartmann stated, you played as well as could ever be expected 3 weeks ago and still lost at home. Its not zero but the chance is slim to none.

    The Pack pi$$ pounded the Rams by 21 points. They only needed 2 quarters to do it, after halftime they started running the clock out. That being said I agree with Titus’ comparison, 1-7 Rams = 2-6 Vikings. Although the Pack might need 3 quarters just because AP is a stud.

    Don’t try to justify it RodgersGo. Defending it by saying that it is commonplace is ignorant. Why don’t you ask yourself what it adds to your enjoyment of the game? I find it hard to believe that the answer will be anything to be proud of.

    If you like talking trash with Bears fans so much, why don’t you waste your time on their site instead of ours? To be honest, I’d rather discuss football intelligently over competing with the fans of other teams to see who can smear more hypothetical shît on the other’s team.

    So they were protesting the action taken against the person who only reported the crime to his superior and not the cops? That makes a bit more sense, but I agree that he should be held accountable for not informing the police. It looks like the problem is that state law exonorates him because he reported it to his superior. I hate to say it, but the law needs to be corrected before anyone can be held accountable. I still think he was wrong, but I think it would be worse to punish someone who acted in accordance to the powers that govern him.

    HEY CHEESE HEADS:

    This Monday Night Game! just might be the one that gets Mr. Rodgers knocked on his cheese head BUTT. I do believe that the VIKES and Mr.PONDER GET TO RUB IT IN YOUR PROVERBIAL FACE IN THE UNFROZEN TUNDRA THIS COMING MONDAY NIGHT. AND by the way you stole the name FROZEN TUNDRA FROM THE VIKINGS OLD METROPOLITAN STADIUM IN BLOOMINGTON MN. YOU KNOW THE PLACE WHERE BUD GRANT WOULD NOT ALLOW HIS VIKES TO WEAR GLOVES, OR SIT ON HEATED BENCHES UNLIKE THE SOFT BELLIED PACKERS AND OTHER NFL TEAMS OF THE 60′S. So Packers beware the 14th of November it just might be your undoing. Skol VIKE FANS FROM ALL OVER!!!!!!!

    Mike Wobshall, can you screen out the mindless, moronic shady 80 packer fans from our blog? By cross checking previous email addresses. I find them very childish and annoying. thanks

    Obviously the Packer fans are afraid the Vikings might beat the Packers.

    Like so many Viking Fans I had to relocate to Portland, Oregon for my job but I rarely miss a Viking Game because of The NFL Sunday Ticket at my favorite sports bar and Viking fan hangout. Buffalo wild wings, they got great beers and all the football one could want. Besides the Vikings, I get to root for the Oregon Ducks every Saturday. anyway just thought I’d tell you that I enjoy your blogs. Skol.

    Thanks a whole heap, Ive noticed that Toad_the_Wet_Sprocket believes that his comments are note worthy but I have discovered that all they are is NOISE worthy.I believe his IQ is somewhere in the low to mid 90’s and that his remarks amuse himself to the nth degree but as with any less learned person you have to suffer the little children and their remarks. Take Care and thanks much.

    @ Packas
    Hockey is not a sport? Tell that to a guy that plays hockey!! You don’t see the refs throwing a flag on the defense for roughing the goalie!! As Jack Lambert use to say, “Put a dress on these QB’s”!! They throw a flag on the defense even if they look at the QB wrong in the NFL!! Bt the way, the Los Angles Lakers were once the Minneapolis Lakers and they won 5 championships while in Minnesota!! The Twins have won 2 championships!! We don’t talk college sports here because they are still boys, who are trying to become men!!
