Thoughts on Green Bay - Minnesota

The best part of the game yesterday for Packers fans was that Green Bay did not play well. I say that because if the Vikings would have beaten the Packers with Green Bay playing at its peak, I would be very worried heading into Saturday's rematch at Lambeau. But Aaron Rodgers wasn't sharp, the defensive line didn't look great and the secondary wasn't making the plays that they usually do. Christian Ponder did indeed play very well, but it will be very interesting to see if he can replicate that performance this Saturday. It'll be his first taste of the playoffs, whereas Rodgers has been there before. I think the 8-point spread that Vegas put out is a little too high for the Packers to cover, but I do think Green Bay wins the rubber match, 27-21.
