Running Peterson on first and second down against a stacked box, then throwing on third down is a recipe for another loss.
The offensive game plan has to allow some first and second down throws at times to open up the run.
The defense needs to take advantage of the home crowd noise, although I suspect it's going to be one of those years where there are as many Packers fans as Vikings fans.
And special teams need to limit mistakes.
Then the Vikings have a chance.
A very slim chance on paper.
But let's play the game and see what happens.
