Green Bay Packers ‘vulnerable’ ahead of Vikings clash

Published Add your comment

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook has raised the stakes ahead of his side’s massive NFC North showdown against the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers made a fine start to the current NFL season, moving to 5-2 and appearing to be on the road to the play-offs.

However, the loss of quarterback Aaron Rodgers has certainly put the pressure on Mike McCarthy’s side, and they’ve lost their last three matches to drop to 5-5.

That leaves them behind the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears in the division, and in a huge battle with a host of other teams for the wildcard places.

Defeat against the Vikings at Lambeau Field would drop them further behind the pack, and Cook has sensed an opportunity to heap some misery on their famous rivals.

"They're definitely vulnerable right now, Rodgers is a key guy for them and he pretty much makes their offense go,” he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Scott Tolzien is set to continue as the Packers’ back-up QB on Sunday, and despite the defeats he’s appeared to improve in his recent outings.

With that in mind, plus Minnesota’s own problems in the position, this is anything but a walk-over for the travelling 2-8 franchise.
