While Percy Harvin is doubtful for Sunday's Vikings-Packers game, Green Bay will be without arguably its two best defensive players. Linebacker Clay Matthews is out with a pulled hamstring and Woodson will miss a fifth straight game with a broken collarbone.

As for the Vikings, head coach Leslie Frazier believes Minnesota's best chance to win will come if they get an early lead and are able to rush the passer. Aaron Rodgers has been sacked more than any quarterback in the NFL, but he's still managed to put up the league's highest passer rating.
