As NFL Week 16 and Packers vs. Vikings approaches, everyone is on the lookout for postseason news to see who is going to secure or lose a spot over the next two weeks. The Green Bay Packers are here to prove why they deserve a spot in the NFL Playoffs, coming off of a 4 game winning streak they are looking better than ever. On the other hand, the Vikings have been on a bit of a downward spiral as of late, so we don’t have much faith in them pulling out a win, especially in the freezing Green Bay weather.
Vikings vs. Packers Score Prediction: Packers 26, Vikings 16
Earlier this season, the NFL rumor mill might have predicted the Vikings being at the top of the leaderboard, however that’s certainly no longer the case. The Minnesota Vikings have been falling in the standings and are on the outside looking in when it comes to the NFC playoff race. Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers have been on a roll over the last four weeks and look like a serious championship contender once again.
In recent NFL news, Aaron Rodgers and co are heading into this week’s game with an 8-6 record and are just behind the Detroit Lions for the NFC North division title. They have won four straight games and are one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL right now.
Minnesota is 7-7 at this point in the season, and are no longer viewed as a serious contender. Minnesota knows that this week’s game is a must win, but beating Green Bay at Lambeau is not an easy task, and it will take a nearly perfect game for the Vikings to win.
This is a huge game for Green Bay, they are playing at home, and we don’t see them dropping this one. Lambeau is a tough place to play, especially this time of the year when it’s usually freezing and when the Packers are trying to make a Super Bowl run.
Our NFL score prediction for this game is 26-16 in favor of Green Bay.
