– Defense –

If you played the Packers defense, what a swing in momentum you might have caused for your opponent.

The Packers led all NFL defenses with 26 points while scoring 3 touchdowns, forcing 4 turnovers, and registering 4 sacks.

Coincidentally, the Packers have only scored 20 or more fantasy points one time.

That was against the Vikings.

Nick Perry and Clay Matthews both missed practice today but should be good to go on Sunday.

Teddy Bridgewater will be starting for the Vikings this time around and is a improvement from Christian Ponder. With that said, Bridgewater is still turning the ball over on a consistent rate so the Packers should be able to get a takeaway or two.

Look for the Packers defense to have another good week.

Standard Scoring Projection: 12 points
