The surprising Minnesota Vikings, led by MVP candidate Adrian Peterson, will head to Lambeau Field to do battle with the Green Bay Packers this weekend.

The Vikings and Packers squared off last weekend in what was a very important game for both teams. The Vikings ended up squeaking out a win in overtime, a win that sent the team to the playoffs. The Packers, on the other hand, squandered their chance at a first week bye in the playoffs with the loss. The Packers made a number of errors throughout the game and will be looking to rectify things on their home turf.

The Minnesota Vikings finished the regular season with a record of 10-6, while the Packers finished with a record of 11-5. The Vikings got off to a scorching start this season, while the Packers started slow and finished strong.

The big difference between last weekend and this weekend? Home field advantage for the Packers. Lambeau Field is a particularly hard place for opposing teams to play at, especially during this time of the year. The Packers were 7-1 at home this season, while the Vikings were 3-5 on the road.

The Vikings will be resting much of their hopes on Adrian Peterson, who nearly broke the NFL's all-time single season rushing record this year after racking up 2,097 yards on the ground. The Vikings will be giving it to Peterson early and often.

The Packers, on the other hand, will look to execute a balanced attack led by Aaron Rodgers' pinpoint passing.
