The Green Bay Packers desperately need a win. They return home for the first time since Week 3 to host the Minnesota Vikings.
Minnesota has bounced back from an 0-3 start, winning three of its past four games, including an impressive victory over the San Francisco 49ers last Monday night.
It has been a different story for the Packers. Losers of three straight, Green Bay has struggled to score, putting up 20 or fewer points in each of its previous four games.
Green Bay needs to play a lot better to get back on track. Maybe a divisional showdown at Lambeau Field is the time to make it happen. Here's how to watch.
What time is the Packers game today?
- Date: Sunday, October 29
- Time: Noon CT
- Location: Lambeau Field
It feels good to be back at Lambeau Field. Lost in the frustration of Green Bay's 2-4 start is that the team has only played two home games. After beating the New Orleans Saints in Week 3, the Packers hosted the Detroit Lions four days later. But that's it. The other four contests have been played on the road, making life more challenging for this young team.
The Packers are finally back in the early window on Sunday afternoon. It is only their third noon kickoff of the season. Their last was against the Saints on September 24, which was also the last time Green Bay won a game.
Since then, the Packers played consecutive primetime games, had their bye, then played the Denver Broncos in the late window. But if you like noon games, there are plenty on the way. The Packers' next four matchups kick off at noon, followed by a Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Detroit Lions at 11:30 a.m.
