Facts to Know

Green Bay Packers

  • QB Aaron Rodgers has thrown four touchdown passes in each of his past two games at U.S. Bank Stadium.
  • Most of the Packers offseason moves involved re-signing players, led by a three-year contract extension of Rodgers, an extension for Preston Smith and a big deal to bring back LB De'Vondre Campbell.
  • Green Bay tied for ninth in the NFL last season with 26.5 points scored per game.

Minnesota Vikings

  • Za'Darius Smith, who joined Minnesota during free agency in part to reconnect with former Green Bay coaches Mike Pettine and Mike Smith, is scheduled to face Aaron Rodgers and company for the first time since he did so in 2017 as a member of the Ravens.
  • Minnesota's 72 sacks of Rodgers in 27 games are the most by any team (Chicago is next with 54 in 27 games), and the Vikings will be looking to create more pressure on the QB than in the 2020 season opener that was played without fans.
  • WR Adam Thielen has scored seven touchdowns against the Packers, more than any other opponent.
