The Minnesota Vikings are poised to take down teh Green Bay Packers with quarterback Aaron Rodgers forced to watch from the sidelines. Watch Vikings vs Packers online free streaming live NFL Sunday Football on Fox by following the links offered below to see the Vikings can score a huge upset on the road.
The Packers have been in a steady decline since starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down against the Chicago Bears with a broken collarbone. Since the injury the Packers have lost three consecutive games and what had been a comfortable lead in the NFC North division against the Lions and Bears. At 5-5, the Packers now find themselves trailing both of those teams by one full game.
Rookie Scott Tolzien is expected to start again at quarterback for the Packers against the Vikings, a team the Packers beat 44-31 back in October when Rodgers was healthy. Rodgers was huge in that game including a 76-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson. Tolzien has struggled in his limited time playing in the NFL and will be tasked to learn on the job against a struggling Vikings squad with a 2-8 record.
Even though the Packers are without their starting quarterback, history favors them heavily playing at home in Lambeau Field. The Packers have beaten the Vikings seven of the past eight meetings between the two teams and 15 of 19 reaching back many years. They’ve won the past three, but Aaron Rodgers was the starter in all of those games. Tolzien will need to be on the top of his game when we watch Vikings vs Packers online free live streaming, or else the visiting team might leave with a win.
The Vikings have their own quarterback woes but not due to injury. Starter Christian Ponder has been bumped multiple times for poor play, but none of the backups put in have fared any better. Even though Ponder threw three interceptions last week and was yanked yet again for Matt Cassel, he will start today against the Packers, though he might be on a shorter leash if his passes find Packers jerseys.
Ponder was the starter against the Packers earlier this year and had an unmemorable 145 yards passing. Over his career, Ponder has thrown three interceptions in two losses playing at Lambeau Field. On the bright side for Ponder, Green Bay’s defense is expected to be without cornerbacks Sam Shields and Casey Hayward as both are nursing injured hamstrings and will be game time decisions to play.
