The Green Bay Packers visit the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC North showdown in week 6 NFL action.

The Green Bay Packers will look to build on their 3rd consecutive victory, a 35-31 victory over the Cowboys in their last outing to sit the Pack at 4-1 at the top of the NFC North standings. Aaron Rodgers threw for 221 yards and 3 touchdowns on 19 of 29 passing, while Aaron Jones led the Green Bay ground attack with 19 carries for 125 yards and a touchdown. Davante Adams led Green Bay with 7 catches for 66 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Martellus Bennett logged 53 receiving yards and Randall Cobb caught 4 balls of his own. Jordy Nelson also added a TD grab of his own in the win. Defensively, the Packers combined for a sack, a pair of fumble recoveries and a pick-six from Damarious Randall in the 4th quarter.

The Minnesota Vikings will look to build on their 3-2 record after a 20-17 victory in week 5’s edition of Monday Night Football. Sam Bradford threw for just 36 yards on 5 of 11 passing, while Case Keenum threw for 140 yards and a touchdown in relief on a much better 17 of 21 passing. Jerick McKinnon led the team with 95 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries, while Latavius Murray added 31 rushing yards on 12 carries. McKinnon led the team in receiving as well, with 51 yards on 6 receptions, while Kyle Rudolph caught 6 balls of his own for 45 yards and a touchdown. Adam Thielen also contributed 5 receptions for 34 yards in the win. The Vikes combined for a sack, a pick, and a forced fumble, which they also recovered, all while holding the Bears to just 274 yards of total offense in the victory.

Green Bay is 46-22 ATS in their last 68 division matchups and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a win while the over is 15-3 in their last 18 games overall. Minnesota is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 division matchups and 33-15 ATS in their last 48 games overall while the under is 17-4 in their last 21 games against a team with a winning record. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

The Packers are the hottest team in the division right now, and they have to be feeling themselves still after their last-second win over Dallas last week. Minnesota got the W as well, but they come into this one on a short week and still put faith in Sam Bradford when it’s clear that it’s Case Keenum who should be starting. Either way, I think Green Bay has the edge in every category, and I think they get a big road win and with the line as low as it is, I think the Packers are a must play on Sunday.
