Aaron Rodgers is playing out of his mind after a slow start

Recapping the NFC North in Week 5 Packers on top

The Packers will be led by the red-hot Aaron Rodgers, as he was the magician who fueled that comeback in week five. Too bad, because there's no reason to trust the Packers defense so far.

Darren Woodson and Herm Edwards both agree Aaron Rodgers will guide the Packers to a win over the Vikings. "I'm excited for whatever it is", Montgomery said Thursday.

That probably will never happen, though the Packers did wind up dealing Brett Favre to pave the way for Rodgers to take over.

On the ground, Jerick McKinnon rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown in 16 attempts while Latavius Murray added 31 yards in 12 attempts.

While the Packers thrive after struggling, the Vikings tend to suffer a post-victory letdown; they've failed to cover in any of their last five games following a straight-up win.

Zimmer's creative and aggressive approach to pass rushing and preference for tight man-to-man pass coverage has provided the Vikings a formula for slowing the Packers that they haven't had in decades. Roethlisberger won't have an easy day with the Kansas City defense across from him, so he needs to have his confidence this week.

The Vikings are coming into this game after escaping Soldier Field with a win against rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears. It was Nelson who orchestrated the bobsled celebration in that Dallas game. But the admiration grew out of more than just his ability to rush the passer with pure speed, quick moves and relentless power.

Rodgers finished the game with 221 yards and three touchdowns, while Prescott threw for 251 and three touchdowns, along with running in for a score.

Russian woman killed in unsafe holiday stunt
Deadly game: Natalia Borodina is filmed by her friend as she leans out of the window of a moving auto in the Dominican Republic. According to widespread media reports, the mother of one who works in real estate in Moscow, died of her injuries.

"It's very loud there, and Griffen is a superb football player", Campen said. Rodgers' intangibles aside, the Vikings have plenty going in their favor as they try to reverse the trend. "He's huge. He's fast".

Rookie Aaron Jones seemed to be more than up to the task, though. In their 28 regular-season and playoff games prior to last Sunday, the Packers had only two 100-yard rushers.

Jones, a fifth-round pick out of the University of Texas-El Paso, took the place of running back Ty Montgomery, who missed the matchup with Dallas because of a rib injury. But whether from a project rookie or a position switcher, a productive ground game would make Rodgers and the Packers that much more unsafe.

"When you can look at the plan going into it on third downs and red zone, and go, 'This one's probably a touchdown, this one's probably a touchdown, ' and then you go out and execute it, it feels pretty good", Rodgers said. "You can't give them three dimensions". The Vikings' offense lacked explosiveness until backup QB Case Keenum entered the game.

Elliott ended a three-game drought without 100 yards, matching the longest from his rookie season, finishing with 116 yards in 29 carries. He caught all six passes that were thrown to him and scored on a 58-yard run off a toss sweep, but the 5-foot-9, 205-pound McKinnon was equally impressive by the way he absorbed and delivered punishing hits at the end of some of those plays.

"You hate to ever have one of your key cogs not in there", defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

"It's big time. It shows I belong at this level".
