Packers vs Vikings’: Three Reasons to Trust.

The final game of the year between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings will be the last man standing.The Packers will be without Christian Watson and Jayre Alexander on Sunday night. The Minnesota Vikings have Kirk Cousins ​​and T.J. Hockenson. Can Jordan Love beat Vikings rookie Jar Hall? Or will Justin Jefferson and Jordan Addison disrupt Green Bay’s makeshift secondary?Here are three reasons why the Packers beat the Vikings and kept their playoff hopes alive:

1. Jordan Love > Jaren Hall

Football in its simplest form often boils down to this question: Which team has the best defenders? The team with the best defense wins more games. The Packers had an X-factor in their back pocket from 2008 to 2022. Because they have Aaron Rodgers, they have won more games than any team except the Patriots in 15 seasons.Sunday night’s game is one of the most popular running backs in the NFL, Jordan Love. Fifth-round pick Jarn Hall has 10 pass attempts on his resume.In Week 10, when Love led the Packers past the Chargers, 31 quarterbacks threw at least 100 passes. Among the group, Love ranks third in passer rating (107.6), fifth in completion percentage (67.8), third in touchdowns (13), first in interceptions (1) and 11th in yards per attempt (7.4)

2. “Golden Hollow”The midfielder wins the game. You know what else wins the game? Get 7 points instead of 3.

The Packers were surprisingly poor in the red zone (21st, 51.8% shooting percentage), but performed incredibly well in front of the goal (highest rating, 94.7%).Green Bay has scored 19 goals this season. 18 balls were scored. Outlook: – This may be the best touchdown percentage in NFL history. The NFL has kept the red zone and field goal data since 1999.

The previous record was 94.1% for the Titans in 2020. Only a few teams finished the season with a score above 90%.When the Packers led the NFL in red zone success in 2020, they had a 90.5% field goal percentage, the best touchdown percentage in NFL history. – Last time the Packers were first in the red zone. In 2001, the performance was 79.2%. This was a very common hit rate at the time

3. Disadvantages of home domainU.S.

Stadium Bank in Minnesota is one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. “Their fans really root for the home team and do a great job of disrupting the opposition, especially when it comes to opposing offenses,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said.

“That’s what I pointed out and showed. You can check the box for penalties for delay of game or false starts.”Especially when you combine that with the defensive aspect, there are going to be adjustments, so you have to make your lineup a priority and allow for adjustments as well.”But the Vikings are 2-5 at home this season, including losses to Chicago (12-10) and Detroit (30-24) last month. Offensively, they scored the 7th fewest home goals.

Defensively, despite some help from the fans, they have the fifth-lowest passer rating among opposing teams. Minnesota has wins against Atlanta and New Orleans since Cousins’ injury, but is 1-4 overall in its last five games. The only win? 3-0 against the Raiders.The Vikings are not a good team, but they are a sloppy team. In those four losses, the turnover is -9. He ranks 30th overall on the season, 30th in home runs and 31st in home runs.
