Three division games in twelve days? No problem, right? That's the situation the Green Bay Packers are in tonight, as they host the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football. Lambeau Field plays host to its second game of the year tonight as the fans drive up from Milwaukee for a Gold Package game tonight.

Josh Sitton thinks Thursday games are stupid. But that doesn't really matter now.

For the Vikings, they will be without starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tonight, as he is inactive with an ankle injury. Christian Ponder starts instead, and has a passer rating of 76.6 in six career starts against the Packers.

For the Packers, a point of emphasis tonight will be the run game, both on offense and defense. The last-ranked run defense in the league wears Green and Gold, while Eddie Lacy and company rank 28th in the league in rushing yards.

Join the APC family this evening for the game, and Go Pack Go!
