The NFL is billing it as Game 256 - the last of the 256 games in the regular season. The Packers are winners of their last four football games, after dropping four straight and will look to continue that string of wins against Minnesota.

After a one-game return, Adrian Peterson has been ruled out again.

Below is all you need to watch Saturday's game.

"We're planning on going to Detroit to win the division", coach Mike McCarthy said. Recently, though, Minnesota's defense has not played very well - mostly because of being on the field more than they should.

Drew Brees was 23 of 34 for 299 yards and a touchdown for New Orleans (7-8), which gained 417 total yards and did not have a turnover.

The victor of the prime-time showdown will win the NFC North division title and host a playoff game. Only the Lions" knack for dramatic finishes plus the Packers' sluggish start to "16 kept Detroit atop the division this long.

"You know being out the last week was, you know, a big step for me".

The transformed offense, featuring the quick rythym passing and keep 'em honest run game, picked apart the Vikings who relied primarily on zone coverage, failing miserably. Munnerlyn talked about the difficulties Rodgers' mobility creates. He would likely have to take a significant pay cut to remain in Minnesota. "Like I said, I came out with a couple nicks and just taking one day at a time and see how I feel", says Peterson.

Rodgers was 19-for-22 for 268 yards and three touchdowns in the first half, at that point giving him a near-perfect passer rating of 157.0. Neither put the Packers away when they had a chance.

If 1928 was her year of birth was true, it would also mean that she was only eight years old when she was named Miss Hungary 1936. Gabor and Kim Kardashian are both women "who not only didn't mind living life in front of a camera, but much preferred it".

They will clash against the Minnesota Vikings in one of the most important games for them this season. They are already the first duo to each have 800-plus since Moss and Carter in 2001.

Still, four sacks and two lost fumbles that led to 14 first-half points for the Packers was too much. Two of them have gone to wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who is having an incredible day as well. Rodgers ran for his score five plays later.

RODGERS' CALF: Rodgers' injured right calf seemed to be improving after the quarterback was a full practice participant at midweek.

Because as it turns out, spending an extra five hours on an ice-covered runway was a heck of a lot more enjoyable than trying to stop Aaron Rodgers.

Yes, the Vikings defense was repeatedly torched, especially in the first half, with free-running receivers for Aaron Rodgers to target in his shooting gallery. Quarterback Sam Bradford is completing 71.6 percent of his passes with two games to go, which puts him on pace to break Drew Brees' single-season record of 71.2 set with New Orleans back in 2011.

Arguably his best performance came Christmas Eve versus Minnesota.

"Well, that's what he was supposed to do the whole game". "It's not about stats".

"I've been here for 10 years and think I've done some OK things", Peterson said. Three plays later, Green Bay had a 21-6 lead. Now the quarterback could face a Vikings D without its standout safety, Harrison Smith. Deep balls turned into game-changing plays.
