Week 2: vs Minnesota Vikings

All RB vs MIN

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Packers predictably struggled in their season-opener against the elite Chicago Bears defense. Aaron Jones led the backfield with 13 carries for 39 yards. While Jones was the clear lead back, the snap split was still pretty close with Jones seeing just 59% of snaps compared to 41% from Jamaal Williams. Williams was alotted five carries but did basically nothing with them, netting out to zero rushing yards. Jones did head to the sideline briefly with what appeared to be a hand injury, but he returned to the field on the following drive and is not listed on the injury report. The Packers offensive line had a tough time against one of the top defensive lines in football, and things will not improve much this week as they draw another difficult matchup against the Vikings. The Vikings allowed just 50 rushing yards to Falcons running backs last week as their defensive line commanded the trenches combined with a game script that forced the Falcons to go pass-heavy. Devonta Freeman was held to only 19 yards on eight carries. The Vikings interior defensive line appeared to pick up right where they left off last season as a top-tier unit. Despite the loss of Sheldon Richardson, Linval Joseph and Shamar Stephen played very well against the run. Linebackers Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr also did well picking up the slack while Harrison Smith made some great tackles from the third level--leading the team with eight solo tackles. The Packers offensive line may not have looked great last week against the Bears, but this is still a talented unit that should match up well even against this stout Vikings defensive front. Even if the Packers do win in the trenches, the Vikings have solid playmakers on the second and third level to chip in--a trait that continues to make them a top-tier run defense.

Packers | Thursday injury report for GB (Thu Sep 12, 06:11 PM) - Green Bay Packers CB Jaire Alexander (knee) and CB Ka'dar Hollman (neck) were limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 12. OT David Bakhtiari (back), LB Oren Burks (chest) and WR Darrius Shepherd (hamstring) didn't practice. OT Bryan Bulaga, CB Josh Jackson (Achilles), CB Kevin King (chest), C Corey Linsley (elbow), G Cole Madison (ankle), LB Blake Martinez (shoulder), S Will Redmond (ankle), RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder) and CB Tramon Williams (not-injury related) all practiced in full.

Our View: Vikings week is not a good one for your left tackle to be ailing with a back injury. It could be another low-scoring NFC North showdown involving the Packers this week.
