Packers Face Viking Team That's Coming Off Monday Night Win

The Green Bay Packers will play a Minnesota Vikings' team on Sunday that's coming off a victory Monday night, 20-17 at Chicago.

The Vikes started quarterback Sam Bradford but he reinjured his left knee, and Case Keenum led three scoring drives in the second half after Minnesota trailed 3-2 at halftime. Kai Forbath kicked a 26 yard field goal in the final seconds as the Vikings improved to 3-2. They'll host a 4-1 Packers team that has won three straight, partially on the strength of a 125-yard rushing performance by rookie Aaron Jones in the Pack's win at Dallas. One question for Green Bay this week is whether starting running back Ty Montgomery will return after suffering broken ribs 12 days ago against Chicago -- and Jones says he has no idea yet whether he'll start in Minneapolis.
