At the end of a long holiday weekend lies presumably the most anticipated games of the 2015 season. After entering the season with plenty of optimism focused around a lot of rather unknowns, the Vikings have an opportunity to dethrone the Green Bay Packers atop the NFC North.
There is plenty of reason to believe the Vikings have their best chance to do so in long, long time, but after taking a 30-13 lopsided loss in week 11 you have to give pause to consider how the Packers have flat out dominated the series in the last decade.
Many will assume that stopping Aaron Rodgers on defense is priority number one. However, if you look into how the Packers have won this season, you’ll realize finding balance on offense is their key to success.
Believe or not, without stopping the run, the Vikings defense doesn’t stand a chance stopping Rodgers.
