Minnesota (8-8) at Green Bay (10-6)

Game Prediction: MIN 30, GB 34

(Line - Packers by 6)

These teams have played twice this season with both as three point wins by the Packers have who been playing the best at the end of the year while the Vikings have lost four of their last five games and their lone win was by one point over the Lions.

You can pretty much throw out the records when these teams play since it's always a close, high scoring game. The Vikes do not run well in Green Bay so it'll be up to Culpepper to post some gaudy numbers this week. Nate Burleson has scored in both meetings this season with over 100 yards in each. Moss missed one game but has always been a problem for Green Bay.

Favre has been huge against the Vikes in both games this season but the difference lies with Ahman Green who had 145 rushing yards in Green Bay last time. That's one offensive weapon that the Vikings cannot match and the Packers poor pass defense earlier this season has improved at least marginally.

This will likely be the most fun game to watch, but has to favor the Packers at home against the Vikings who are slowly coming unraveled here at the end of the season.

Javon Walker had a slight concussion last week but is expected to play.
