The Packers turned around their dismal production on third downs in the last game against Dallas, in part by slimming down the playbook volume in those situations. The hope is that success will continue Sunday against the Vikings, who haven’t been as formidable on defense on third down as in the past. For more on that, check out today’s feature story.
Also, Sunday will mark the 100th meeting between the Packers and Vikings. Did you know that the first offensive snap the Packers ran against the Vikings, back on Oct. 22, 1961, was a 78-yard touchdown pass from Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler? That and a little more about the history of the series leads off today’s notebook, which also includes a full injury update.
