There is no drama surrounding this weekend's Packers-Vikings game. And if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.

The Green Bay Packers will play the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, and both teams are seriously banged-up. The big stories with this game involve Greg Jennings' first game against his old team and the Packers continued attempt to overcome injuries at wide receiver and linebacker. Therefore, it should be no surprise that those two storylines are dominating today's Cheese Curds.

Both Jay Cutler and Lance Briggs are out for the Bears, and both will miss the game against Green Bay a week from Monday. If there was ever an ideal time to play the Bears, it's in the next few weeks. (Also: there's a GIF of the Charles Martin body-slam.)
