On Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers make their 31st and final trip to the Metrodome to play the Minnesota Vikings. In week 17 a year ago, the Vikings played a near-flawless game on offense in the dome, riding the efforts of Adrian Peterson (199 rushing yards) to a 37-34 win and a rematch at Lambeau Field the following week in the Wild Card round.
This year, Green Bay comes in again the favorite, with a 4-2 record, but the Vikings are in disarray at 1-5 and have had as much turmoil as any team in the league at the quarterback position. Christian Ponder will get the start on Sunday, after Josh Freeman suffered a concussion on Monday night.
Here are all the nuts and bolts for Sunday's game.
