Packers at Vikings: Three Reasons to Worry

Let’s cut right to the chase. When the Green Bay Packers line up to host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, the biggest mismatch will be the Vikings’ star wide receivers against the Packers’ tight ends. This is the most obvious reason why the Packers are losing to the Vikings.

1. Packers cornerbacks vs. vikings receiver

It’s almost an insult to your intelligence. With Jair Alexander out, Rasul Douglas traded and Eric Stokes injured, the Packers face the best receiver trio in the NFL with Carrington Valentine and Corey Ballentine at cornerback and Keysian Nixon. packaging receiver and Vikings CornerbackThe Packers’ strongest threat on the field may not be Christian Watson. The best player was Dontayvion Weeks, who made decisions during the game. Assuming both players are inactive, can the Packers make enough big plays to keep up with the Vikings?Last season, Minnesota allowed 11.1 yards per catch, the fifth fewest in the NFL.

This year, he ranked fourth in rushing, averaging 8.9 yards per catch.Despite the Vikings being without Byron Murphy, who leads the team with three catches, rookie Mekhi Blackmon broke up three passes and allowed zero catches in his first game. Sophomore quarterback Akayleb Evans allowed five catches in the game, but only for 36 yards. He was benched last week but is expected to return to the lineup

3. Jaren Hall swings.

Afew weeks ago, Green Bay’s defense began to unravel when Giants rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito gave out his legs. DeVito ran on his feet, rushing for 71 yards on 10 carries. I wonder if this play played a role in Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell’s decision to start rookie Jaren Hall for this divisional game.The hall is smaller, only 6 meters high. That person’s hands are too weak. But he ran the 40 in 4.62 seconds at BYU’s pro day. In his final two years of college, he rushed for 657 yards and six touchdowns.Hall’s athleticism will be a huge challenge for a Packers defense that has allowed the fourth-most yards by a quarterback this season.

“When you have a guy like that, he can use his legs to extend the play,” said Packers safety Zane Anderson, who played with Hall at BYU. “Whether we’re making money or working on set, he puts a lot of pressure on our cast and makes sure we keep up with our peers. And he has an extra element to his game because he can run. “You always have to be careful because there’s such a double threat.”
