How Favre and Aaron Rodgers play matters, of course, but the more important battle is happening in the trenches. Namely, how is Green Bay going to slow down Minnesota’s defensive line? How are the Packers going to slow down Adrian Peterson, the league’s leading rusher?
The good news for Green Bay is All-Pro guard Steve Hutchinson (back) is questionable for Minnesota. If he can’t play, that’s a serious blow to the Vikings’ offense, and could put more pressure on Favre to make plays.
