The Packers ended Brett Favre’s winning streak against them in a 28-24 win at Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football on October 24, 2010. Three Favre interceptions helped the Packers surge to the 28-24 lead but Favre led a late comeback; an endzone catch by Percy Harvin with 57 seconds remaining was nullified when review showed one foot out of bounds, and the Vikings failed to convert a touchdown in their final attempt. Favre suffered injury to his left ankle that left his season in doubt and coach Brad Childress was livid with the officiating crew led by Scott Green. In the November 21 rematch, the Packers routed the Vikings 31-3 behind four Aaron Rodgers touchdown passes, making Rodgers 2-2 against Favre in his career. The loss dropped the Vikings to 3-7, all but eliminating them from playoff contention. Childress was then fired by the Vikings the next day, and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was promoted to replace him. The Packers, on the other hand, went on to win their fourth Super Bowl.
Adrian Peterson came up nine yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson’s 1984 rushing record but his late scamper set up the winning field goal in a 37-34 Vikings win on December 30, 2012. The Packers erased a 20-10 halftime gap but could not close out the win while the Vikings advanced to the playoffs as the NFC’s sixth seed.
On January 5, 2013 the Packers defeated the Vikings 24-10 in the Wild Card round just six days after falling to the Vikings in Week 17.

Packers vs Vikings Live Prediction
The Vikings will open U.S. Bank Stadium in style, against their archrival on Sunday night. The last time these teams met, the Vikings swiped the division title from the Packers in Week 17. Vikings fans might have a little trepidation about Aaron Rodgers & Co. ruining their big night, but in what should be an electric atmosphere, the Vikings’ defense will harass Rodgers enough to help secure a victory. Record: 2-0.
The Packers’ first game in 2003 following the Lambeau Field renovations came against the Vikings. Now, the Packers will be the guest for the first regular-season game at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. More importantly, it’s a meeting of the top-two teams in the NFC North from last year. Record: 1-1. [ Packers vs Vikings ]
