While the Green Bay Packers have dominated the NFC North lately, there's one division opponent they've struggled to solve.
The Minnesota Vikings have won their last two matchups with the Packers and are the only NFC North team to beat them during Matt LaFleur's three-year coaching tenure in Green Bay. The Vikings (7-8) will try to do it again Sunday night as they attempt to boost their playoff hopes amid potential single-digit temperatures in Green Bay.
The Vikings don't have much margin for error. They'll be eliminated from playoff contention Sunday if they lose at Green Bay and the Philadelphia Eagles win at Washington.
Green Bay (12-3) already has wrapped up its third straight NFC North title. The Packers will clinch the NFC's No. 1 playoff seed and lone first-round bye if they win Sunday and the Dallas Cowboys lose or tie at home against the Arizona Cardinals.
The Packers have won four straight since falling 34-31 at Minnesota on a game decided by Greg Joseph's 29-yard field goal as time expired. The Vikings also won 28-22 at Green Bay last season, handing the Packers their only regular-season home loss of the last two years.
Green Bay has struggled to contain Minnesota's top skill-position players.
Cook rushed for 163 yards, caught two passes for 63 yards and scored four touchdowns in the Vikings' victory at Lambeau Field last season. Justin Jefferson caught eight passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers earlier this year. The Vikings will need a huge performance from one of those guys Sunday night, particularly now that receiver Adam Thielen has been placed on injured reserve.
