Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Two of the proudest franchises in NFL history have combined to create a compelling rivalry over the years, as the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings have often tangled with the NFC North crown on the line. This rivalry started when both teams were members of the NFC Central, with the first meeting between the sides taking place in 1968. Since then, an evenly matched series of games has seen its share of star players and memorable moments.
Among the key players in this rivalry are players like Randy Moss and Daunte Culpepper on the Vikings side, who were one of the few quarterback/receiver combinations capable of matching the firepower of the Packers. Green Bay often boasted stars of their own, with Brett Favre the talisman of that club, although his signing with the Vikings after his time with the Packers was up only served to deepen the disdain these two fan bases have had for the opposing team.
Historic Vikings vs. Packers Games
The Vikings and Packers have only met up twice in the playoffs despite having met for over 110 total games throughout their storied rivalry. The first of those playoff meetings took place in 2005, when the Vikings went into Lambeau Field and defeated the Packers 31-17. Culpepper threw four touchdown passes in the game, including two to Moss. On the defensive side of the ball, the Vikings intercepted four Brett Favre passes to snuff out any hope of a Packers comeback.
It would take nearly a decade, but the Packers finally got their chance for revenge in the playoffs against the Vikings in 2013, when the teams met in the postseason for just the second time. The Packers held Adrian Peterson under 100 yards for the game, after Peterson averaged over 200 yards per game against Green Bay in the regular season. The Packers shut down backup quarterback Joe Webb and won easily, collecting a 24-10 victory, and evening up the playoff record between the two teams at a game apiece.
A Monday Night Football meeting between the teams in October of 2009 saw the first meeting between Brett Favre and his old team, when Favre led the Vikings into battle against the Packers. Minnesota won that game by a 30-23 score, and won the rematch against the Packers just a few weeks after. The Vikings made the NFC Championship Game that season, before losing to the New Orleans Saints.
