Vikings need to leap the Packers at Lambeau

Publish date:

The Vikings have another huge road game on Sunday at Green Bay. The Packers will be hungry for a win after being embarrassed by the Giants on national television Sunday night. Here are some of the top stories we're following leading up to the game.

The Vikings can expect the Packers to play angry -- just like the Bears did after being blown out by the 49ers the previous week. FOX Sports North points out the Vikings need an improved sense of urgency this week.

Green Bay is expected to get wide receiver Greg Jennings back for the game. He hasn't played in nearly three months.

Vikings' receivers Jerome Simpson, Jarius Wright, John Carlson and Stephen Burton combined to drop six passes against Chicago. Head coach Leslie Frazier says dropped passes are "unacceptable in our league."

Who will start at right guard for the Vikings this week? Brandon Fusco's bad game against Chicago got him benched, and replaced by Geoff Schwartz.

Running back Jordan Todman was signed off the Vikings' practice squad by the Jacksonville Jaguars. To replace him, Minnesota signed rookie running back Joe Banyard.
