NFC Nord has already been decided, but the Packers and Vikings still have a lot at stake if they go head-to-head in week 17.

Green Bay is playing for No. 1 in NFC. So far you have set a 12: 3 record and with a win you can gain a sovereign advantage in the race for the coveted first-round goodbye in the NFL playoffs in 2022. Aaron Rodgers is also looking to earn his second straight MVP to become the first player since Peyton Manning to win the award for two straight years.

Minnesota, meanwhile, is playing for its life after the season. You very likely have to win to make the playoffs and Mike Zimmer’s job might depend on it. His seat is getting hot as the Vikings haven’t had a playoff win in recent seasons despite the team’s ownership group investing heavily in player contracts, including Kirk Cousins’. Cousins ​​will miss the game after being put on the COVID reserve list this week.

Can the Packers take control of NFC and knock out their division rivals? Or will the Vikings keep their playoff hopes alive without cousins ​​and pave the way for another team to overtake Green Bay at the top of the NFC?

Below is more about the week 17 matchup, as well as everything you need to know about how to watch Sunday Night Football.

Who is playing on Sunday Night Football tonight?

  • Match: Vikings at Packers
  • location: Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis.

The Vikings (7-8) travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Packers (12-3) in what could be Minnesota’s final effort to stay in the playoff race.

Minnesota won consecutive games to improve to 7-7 before suffering a seven-point loss to the Rams in week 16 with a good chance to tie and overtake one in the standings.

The Vikings have been going nuts for the past few weeks and will be understaffed this week too. Kirk Cousins ​​is on the COVID list and no more, so Sean Mannion will start in his place. Adam Thielen (ankle) is also out. The Vikings beat the Packers earlier in the season, but it will be difficult for them to keep things as tight as with a backup quarterback.

As for Green Bay, they are in control of their own destiny and are pushing for # 1 in the NFC. They win against the Browns where they only won by two points, but they should be motivated to get revenge on the Vikings.

Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and Aaron Jones should have a good game against a Vikings defense that has been generating sales lately but is struggling to slow down enemy attacks. They cut off Veteran Corner and Starter Bashaud Breeland a few weeks ago and it seems like they miss him a little. Adams should take advantage of this absence and could have a big day against the Vikings.
