The Packers are coming off an incredible defensive performance against the Seattle Seahawks. Green Bay's defense pitched a perfect game last week, blanking Russell Wilson for the first time in his career. Aaron Rodgers returned to the lineup after missing the Week 10 clash due to COVID-19 and looked slightly rusty.
The Vikings ended their two-game losing streak with a 27-20 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10. Quarterback Kirk Cousins had a great outing, throwing for 297 yards and two touchdowns. Minnesota's defense limited Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert to just 195 yards passing in a much-needed win.

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings prediction
