10 Vikings-Packers Numbers of Note: 115th Border Battle on Tap

Look back at photos through the years featuring games between the Vikings and Packers.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Vikings are prepping for their final road game of the regular season.

Minnesota and Green Bay are on short weeks as the Vikings will play the Packers  at 7:30 p.m. (CT) Saturday at Lambeau Field.

The Vikings are 11-3 after getting a resounding 34-7 win Sunday over Cincinnati, a victory that claimed a division title for Minnesota. 

The Packers are 7-7 after falling to the Panthers on Sunday. Green Bay was eliminated from playoff contention when Atlanta defeated Tampa Bay on Monday night.

Here's a look at 10 numbers of note headed into the matchup:

115 — Saturday's Border Battle between the Vikings and Packers will be the 115th all-time meeting between the teams. That is the most games against one opponent in Vikings franchise history.

20 — The Vikings have now won 20 division titles in their 57-season history. Minnesota claimed the NFC North with Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

9 — Vikings defensive end Brian Robison now has nine career games with at least 2 sacks. He recorded a pair of sacks Sunday and has 59 sacks for his career.

2 — Eric Kendricks has two career interceptions and has taken both back for touchdowns. The Vikings linebacker had a 31-yard interception return for a score Sunday, and he had a 77-yard, pick-6 in the 2016 season opener against Tennessee.

87 —Case Keenum completed 87 percent of his passes this past week, going 20-for-23 with two touchdown passes and no interceptions. That mark is the second-highest by a Vikings quarterback in team history. 

1 — Minnesota's defense has had three different games this season in which it has held opponents to a single third-down conversion all game. Tampa Bay (1-for-6), Atlanta (1-for-10) and Cincinnati (1-for-13) all only had one third-down conversion against the Vikings.

11 — The Vikings have rushed for at least 100 yards as a team in 11 of 14 games so far this season. Minnesota, which ranks ninth in the NFL with 121.3 rushing yards per game, only had two 100-yard games in 2016.

0 —Ryan Quigley is the only punter in the NFL with at least 50 kicks this season that has yet to record a touchback. Although the Vikings punter has zero touchbacks, he has landed 22 punts inside the 20-yard line.

298 — Adam Thielen has 298 receiving yards in his past two games against the Packers. The Vikings wide receiver has 21 catches and a pair of scores during that span.

3 — Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer has three career wins against Green Bay. The Vikings lost the first two meetings of Zimmer's tenure but have won three of the past five games. A win Saturday would put Zimmer at 4-4 all-time against the Packers.
