The Packers travel to the Vikings, who have a new head coach with a new philosophy. Kevin O’Connell built an offense with the Rams that took Matt Stafford from frat boy afterthought to Super Bowl champion in one season.
What he does with the weapons in Minnesota could determine where they finish this year… and this game.
Here are the 3 biggest questions that will determine the outcome of the game:
- What will the Vikings new offense look like? For year, the Vikings offense has been wildly inconsistent and unable to get very far, even with stud receivers. Will Kevin O’Connell change that? Can he get Kirk Cousins to reach his potential like he did with Matt Stafford? Or has Kirk Cousins already reached his potential?
- What will the Packers offense look like? The Packers offensive line has two huge question marks with All Pro talents. They have a ton of new receivers and may be missing one of their two veterans. And, they didn’t play in the preseason (again). Aaron Rodgers ain’t getting any younger. Will we have a repeat of last years offensive performance on offense?
- Will special teams ruin the game? The Packers brought in Rich Bisaccia, Keisean Nixon, and Rudy Ford specifically to put out the special teams dumpster fire. The preseason didn’t showcase the special teams “starters,” but Rich Bisaccia’s new scheme didn’t exactly cast a lot of hope. Plus, the Vikings have a new returner in the Jalen Reagor. Will the Packers be any better.
