Today, the Green Bay Packers try to look forward to Sunday's game against the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings as they take the field for their first practice of the week. As they do so, they need to try to get their quarterback back in the right frame of mind and on the same page as his receivers, which has been a significant problem over the past few weeks.

Two games ago, it was an interception that gave the offense a great chance to take the lead, while this week he made a huge pass breakup to help stall a Detroit drive.
