    Minneapolis, MN - The Vikings & Packers would meet in Week 14, just two weeks removed from a thriller in Green Bay. Both teams sitting at 11-1, this would be a crucial game for both squads with significant playoff implications. Vikings would have QB Teddy Bridgewater back for this one after missing the last 4 games with a shoulder tear.

    The Vikings would receive the ball and strike first, as AP ran at will against the Packer D getting yards in chunks. A 5-yd TD pass to FB Jerome Felton would put the Vikings up early, 7-0. The Packers would answer with a nice drive of their own, but it would stall in Viking territory and eventually would be forced to punt after a 3rd down sack by rookie LE Evan Wheeler. The Vikings would again move the ball at will, and another long drive ended in 6 points - a 2-yd run by AP. An INT by Packers QB Colt McCoy (in for injured Rodgers) would lead to another drive by Minnesota, but this time they'd fall short of the end zone and settle for 3. Score at half: 17-0 in favor of Minny.

    The second half was dominated by the Vikings defense. They would pick McCoy off 3 more times, and for the second week in a row would hold an opponent to negative passing yards (70 total offensive yards). AP would tack on another TD in the 3rd, his league-leading 23rd of the year as he makes a run at the single-season TD record. Final Score in this one - 24-3 in favor of MN.

    Key Players:
    Minny:
    QB Teddy B - 16 of 24, 148 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT
    HB AP - 17 carries, 91 yds, 2 TD; 2 catches, 17 yds
    LOLB Anthony Barr - 7 Tack, 2 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 Pass Def

    Pack:
    HB Eddie Lacy - 15 carries, 72 yds
    QB Colt McCoy - 3 of 15, 21 yds, 0 TD, 4 INT
    LOLB Nick Perry - 5 Tack, 3 TFL, 1 Sack
