Green Bay Packers vs Minnesota Vikings is a huge game on the final day of the NFL regular season on Sunday. Both teams have a lot on the line for this game, making it an intriguing clash - add Adrian Peterson looking to break the single season rushing record, and this is one of the most exciting games of Week 17. The game is scheduled to start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Adrian Peterson needs to pick up 208 yards in this game to break Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record. So far he has 1,898 yards in 15 games and 11 touchdowns, but will need a massive game to clinch that record and drag the Vikings into the playoffs.
The Vikings come into this game with a record of 9-4 and despite their troubles have a clear shot at making the playoffs. All they need is a final week win at home. The problem is the team they have to beat is the high flying Green Bay Packers.
Many had said this year was going to be a building year for the Vikings, but despite an inconsistent quarterback and an inexperienced defense, they come into this final week match up still with a clear shot at making the playoffs.
The Packers meanwhile were expected to storm the NFC North, but after a lackluster start to the season many doubted their credentials. However, the way in which they have come back and taken complete control of the division shows their class.
At the moment they are 11-4 and if they can win again today then they will clinch a first round bye. So anyone who thought it might be time for the Packers to rest and prepare for the playoffs have got another think coming.
