The Minnesota Vikings are 1.5-point underdogs at home versus the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.

A win over the team’s primary foe would establish a date in California next week for the Vikings to nudge over .500 for the first time in 2021.

Also, here is the injury report — no Wyatt Davis. And Bashaud Breeland is questionable.

In addition, the Vikings will be without the services of Danielle Hunter, Michael Pierce, and of course, Irv Smith Jr.
