The Green Bay Packers haven't had the most stable quarterback position, the best health, or the best performances of 2021. However, the Packers are a team that gets it done in 2021 on a game-by-game basis. The Cheeseheads take on Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.

The Vikings, meanwhile, are in the same place they've been throughout the Kirk Cousins era. Slightly behind but full of reasons to believe. In this game, they have plenty of reasons to think they can win. But to get it done, they'll have to get in front of Aaron Rodgers and hold him down. If this game is close late, the Packers will find a way to win just like they've done all year long.

Meanwhile, the Packers will hope that Aaron Rodgers entirely knocked the Covid rust off in the game against Seattle last week. If he did, the Packers should be pretty confident in their ability to control the game and come out on top. That said, it is one thing to talk through a game. It is another thing entirely to play it.

How many players from both teams are ready to play? Here's a look at the health of both teams, according to CBS Sports.
