The Green Bay Packers will travel to Minnesota to do battle against the Vikings on this week's edition of Sunday Night Football.

The Vikings are reeling right now, as they are currently rotating through a carousel of QBs that has included the likes of Matt Cassel, Christian Ponder and Josh Freeman. Christian Ponder will reportedly be getting the start for the Vikings tonight after newly signed Josh Freeman went down with an injury.

The Green Bay Packers, on the other hand, are starting to accelerate after getting off to a slow start this season. The Packers, winners of their last three games in a row, currently have a 4-2-0 record and would maintain their hold on the NFC North with a win on Sunday night.

The Vikings, on the other hand, are 1-5-0, and are in real danger of completely losing control of their season.
