Wayne Larrivee's Packers-Vikings scouting report II: When Minnesota has the ball

No Stefon Diggs for the Vikings this week, so who will step up?

No Stefon Diggs for the Vikings this week, so who will step up?

This Sunday, the Green Bay Packers will travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings.

A bet on the point spread for the Packers is at -120, while a bet on the point spread for the Vikings is even. He became a fulltime starter in 2014 and in 52 games since then, he's totaled 36.5 sacks.

Shortly after Dallas converted a key fourth down, requiring a booth review to overturn the call, deep in Green Bay territory, Dak Prescott's 11-yard read-option touchdown gave the Cowboys a late 31-28 lead with just 1:13 left to play after a drive that took 17 plays and almost nine minutes of game time. The Pack got off to a slow start to the season, going just 1-1, with their star quarterback and two-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers looking uncharacteristically rusty in those first few games. In four games this season, Keenum has four passing touchdowns and zero interceptions while completing 64% of his passes. If Minnesota hopes to be successful on Sunday it will need to have a strong day on defense against this potent Packers offense. That evening, quarterback Aaron Rodgers [VIDEO] had a very rough evening. The former returned to the starting lineup last Sunday and was a big part of the team's 35-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He's been sacked a league-high 19 times amid protection woes along the Packers' offensive line. "You're frustrated. We knew how important it was for us to get this win and try to go into this bye week 3-2 and now on the flip side it's just about staying focused, a lot of football left to play". They are 2-1 with the over. He and Rodgers will face a tough test in Minnesota's defense. Can it hold up without Sam Bradford?

Rodgers finished the game with 221 yards and three touchdowns, while Prescott threw for 251 and three touchdowns, along with running in for a score. The OVER is 11-1 in Green Bay's last 12 games. Murray struggled mightily against the Lions and only averaged three yards per carry before getting benched by management. Randall Cobb contributed 29 yards in four receptions.

The Vikings' defensive is led by Everson Griffen, who has 6.0 of Minnesota's 9.0 sacks this season. Minnesota has until Week 11 to activate Bridgewater for this season.

Vikings wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen vs the Green Bay secondary. Green Bay's defense has been improved this season and the Packers should be able to limit the damage a backup QB and backup RB do to them. If McKinnon has a great game, expect this contest to come down to the wire.
