Packers fans gather for pep rally before Vikings playoff game
GREEN BAY -- Packers fans come out dressed in their best green and gold to pump up the team before the big game. The Pack is getting primed for the first-round playoff game against division rival Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.
Payback is on the mind of a lot of fans, after the Packers loss to the Vikings that forced this game.
A number of speakers including Packers President Mike Murphy addressed the fans. "We need your support. It's going to be a really tough game," said Murphy. "That team is playing well, but our team always bounces back well. Our goal is to bring the Lombardi trophy back here."
The first-round playoff game is also an economic boom for the City of Green Bay. The Chamber of Commerce says all home games add $8.2 million to the local economy, all cash spent outside of the stadium.
