Packers-Vikings closes out the day with Sunday Night Football

New, comments

We’re back to close out today with Week 12 Sunday Night Football. The Minnesota Vikings host the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium, with kickoff set for 5:20 p.m. PT on NBC. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are calling the game from the booth, and Michele Tafoya is handling sideline duties.

This is a huge one in the NFC North, with both teams trying to hang with the Chicago Bears. This is effectively a divisional elimination game for the Packers, who sit at 4-5-1. They would remain plenty alive in the wild card chase, with the 5-4-1 Vikings leading the way, and Washington, Carolina, and Seattle tied at 6-5. A loss would put the Vikings in a tough spot in the NFC North, but again, they would remain in the thick of the wild card race.

The Vikings opened as a 5.5-point favorite, but the line has come down to 3.5 points, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. I took the Packers in the SuperContest, and will stick with them. It’s a tough game, but I think it comes down to the wire.
