Game Preview: Vikings at Packers

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

EAGAN, Minn. — It's that time again.

The Vikings will venture east (and a little south) for the 118th Border Battle, which is scheduled for noon (CT) Sunday.

Minnesota has gone 5-1-1 in its past seven games against Green Bay, a run of success that began when the Vikings clinched the NFC North at Lambeau Field in the 2015 regular-season finale.

The Vikings and Packers tied 29-all at the venue in 2018, storming back from a 20-7 deficit at the start of the fourth quarter with 22 points, but neither team was able to decide the game in overtime.

Much has changed for both teams since then, as the Vikings overhauled the interior of their offensive line and special teams and the Packers hired first-year Head Coach Matt LaFleur and loaded up on defense during free agency.

The Vikings opened the 2019 season with a 28-12 win over the Falcons at U.S. Bank Stadium, improving to 4-0 in home openers since the building's inaugural game in 2016, a win by Minnesota over Green Bay.

Minnesota seized momentum quickly against Atlanta with a sack of Matt Ryan by Anthony Barr on the first snap of the season, an ensuing punt block by Eric Wilson and touchdown from Kirk Cousins to Adam Thielen on the Vikings second offensive play.

The Packers opened the NFL's 100th season by visiting and defeating Chicago 10-3 at Soldier Field on Sept. 5. LaFleur was the only one out of seven new head coaches across the league to record a win in Week 1.

The Vikings totaled four sacks against the Falcons in Week 1, making it the 26th time under Head Coach Mike Zimmer that the team has recorded at least four sacks in a game (since 2014). Minnesota is 21-4-1 under Zimmer when it records four or more sacks in a game.
