Division on the line
Unofficially, the playoffs start on Sunday for the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers. Sure, border state bragging rights are on the line again in the regular-season finale. Another rushing title is within the grasp of Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson. Aaron Rodgers has one more shot to tune up the sluggish Green Bay offence. This is all overshadowed, naturally, by a bigger priority for both teams: The winner claims the NFC North title and the right to host a home playoff game the following weekend.
