94th meeting. Green Bay leads series, 47-45-1, including a 23-16 victory over the Vikings on Sept. 29, 2007 at the Metrodome. The Packers have won three in a row against the Vikings.
KEYS TO THE GAME
Peterson gained 112 yards on 12 carries in the first meeting, but the Packers can expect to see the ball in his hands at least twice that much in the rematch. QB Brooks Bollinger was efficient in managing the game last Sunday, and is likely to start in place of injured Tarvaris Jackson. The Packers will stack the box with eight and nine defenders in an effort to dare Bollinger, who should try to exploit rookie S Aaron Rouse starting for Nick Collins.
With teams starting to sit on the slants and screens Favre throws so effectively, the Packers are stretching the field more with Favre connecting on three touchdowns of at least 60 yards in the past two games. Green Bay has little hope of running the ball against the Vikings, but it might not bother trying much, knowing the Vikings' No. 31-ranked pass defense doesn't have the depth to contain the Packers' receivers.
Favre has now defeated all 31 other teams in the NFL.
Peterson is the first rookie with two 200-yard rushing games in one season.
