The (7-7) Green Bay Packers host the (11-3) Minnesota Vikings for Saturday Night football. Kickoff is at 8:30 PM ET on NBC. The Vikings are 9-point favorites and the over/under is set at 40.5, which points to a 24.75-15.75 Minnesota victory.

Pats Pulpit Pregame Preview

The Patriots don’t care which team wins and the Packers are already eliminated from the postseason. The Vikings are fighting for a first round bye and potentially homefield advantage if the Philadelphia Eagles drop a game over the final two weeks. The Patriots would rather a team like the Vikings to have a bye to force the Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, and Carolina Panthers to play during wild card weekend.
