So Packers vs. Vikings part II with a definite part III coming up. Again, if there is any play in particular you would like to see my analyze, please leave comments below. As for this week I’ve decided to take a look at one of the times where quarterback Christian Ponder was able to beat the Packers defense through the air. My belief is that the Packers at best can only slow down Adrian Peterson, so it becomes paramount to stop Christian Ponder and the passing since the Packers have already proven that Adrian Peterson can destroy the Packers run defense and still lose the game.
The situation: The score is tied at 27 all with the Packers surging in the 2nd half with 12 minutes left in the 4th quarter. The Vikings know they have to make a big move soon or be on the losing end of a scoring race to the finish line. To their advantage is that Adrian Peterson has maintained his regular season form and is playing lights out, which makes the Packers very susceptible to play-action as every Packers defender is fixated on Peterson.
