Packers to take on Vikings Tonight
Posted: Sep 18, 2016 11:42 AM CDT
The Green Bay Packers will take on the Minnesota Vikings at 7:30 tonight in Minneapolis as the Vikings open their brand new US Bank Stadium for its first regular-season game.
The Packers (1-0) are coming off a 27-23 win in Jacksonville last Sunday while the Vikings defeated Tennessee 25-16.
Green Bay won't have cornerback Sam Shields as he was ruled out for tonight's matchup after suffering a concussion against the Jaguars last Sunday.
The last time these teams played, the Packers lost to the Vikings 20-13 at Lambeau Field, also losing a chance to win the NFC North division to the Vikings.
Minnesota is expected to start Sam Bradford at quarterback, who joined the team right before the start of the regular season.
