THE TEAM NEWS

GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Green Bay edged a step closer to clinching the NFC North title as they proved too good for divisional rivals Chicago with the Packers able to secure their spot in the play-offs with that victory.
  • The Packers were always in control against the Bears and although their opponents were able to pull to within one possession late on, Green Bay never looked like conceding the lead as they moved to 11-3.
  • Green Bay’s kick returner Tyler Ervin suffered a hand injury against Chicago and it will be a blow for the Packers if he is ruled out of this contest after he posted 45 yards on a kick-off return on Sunday.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS

  • Minnesota sealed their place in the play-offs in style as they ran all over Los Angeles Chargers but they will be eyeing the NFC North crown with this do-or-die contest with rivals Green Bay potentially deciding the fate of the division.
  • Having won the first game between the two teams earlier in the season, the Packers will seal the divisional title with a win or tie but if the Vikings can come out on top, they will send the race for the North to the final week of the regular season.
  • Star running back Dalvin Cook was a doubt for last week’s contest and he will be again for this week after he picked up another injury in his team’s win in Week 15 with his shoulder issue set to be assessed ahead of the Monday Night Football contest.

THE PREDICTION

Green Bay and Minnesota both sealed their place in the post-season last week but they will have the NFC North title on their mind as they go head-to-head in what should be a mouth-watering clash on Monday Night Football. The Packers sit one game ahead of the Vikings and will claim the divisional crown if they avoid defeat but this will not be an easy game for them. Both teams could come away with the win in what should be a tight, low-scoring game but the Packers should be able to edge it.
