I can’t remember the last time I saw the Packers win a game because of how their defense played from the first quarter, all the way through the fourth quarter.
What both those teams don’t have that LaFleur has, is one of the best QB s in the game in Aaron Rodgers.
Minnesota also needs better play from their QB. I don’t think this team is beating Fresno in Fresno with just 18 pass attempts.
They can replace his blocking, but they can’t replace his receiving production and swagger.

On top of all that, the Rams plays in London against the Bengals and their former QB Coach Zac Taylor, a week after having to travel to Atlanta.
NFL Game of the Day: 2009 NFC Championship Game – Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints
Coming into this season the big question for the Saints is the same as last year, can they get over their playoff loss and get back to the top of the NFC?
This is the biggest opening game of the week and feels like a must win for Oregon if they want to make the CFP.
