Week 12: vs Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The ongoing legal wrangles about Adrian Peterson's playing status this year will keep him off the field in Week 12, meaning that the Vikings will continue to roll with Jerick McKinnon () and Matt Asiata vs. the Packers. Back in Week 5, Asiata led the team in rushing with 15/72/0 to his credit, while McKinnon posted 7/24/0 rushing and 3/22/0 receiving. Since then, the two have flip-flopped on the depth chart, with McKinnon now getting the bulk of the work, while Asiata is mixed in as a change-of-pace option (and an occasional TD vulture). Last week, McKinnon handled 8/38/0 rushing and 4/20/0 receiving at Chicago, while Asiata managed 1/2/0 rushing and 3/12/0 receiving in his secondary role. The Packers' rush D has limited Philadelphia (31/109/0) and Chicago (24/55/0) to zero rushing scores over the past two weeks, averaging 89 rushing yards allowed per contest during that narrow window. To date, the Packers are averaging 139.2 rushing yards allowed per game, with nine rushing scores given out - they have been playing much more stalwart rush D of late, though. This looks like a neutral matchup for the Vikings, with neither team holding the edge entering Week 12.
