Green Bay Packers
Christian Ponder was embarrassed. Coach Mike Zimmer struggled to find positives. Nothing went right for the Minnesota Vikings in a 42-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.
He played quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers and, no, it’s not Brett Favre. It’s Todd Bouman and he’s still in football — as a Minnesota high school coach.
One Minnesota Viking who knows just how good Aaron Rodgers can be is Greg Jennings. Jennings spent seven years as a Packer. The best seasons of his career started when Rodgers took over from Brett Favre.
Looks like Teddy Time will have to wait. Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is out for Thursday night’s game against the Packers in Green Bay, Wis., according to the team.

These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.
The Minnesota Vikings are still not sure who their starting quarterback will be when the team plays the Green Bay Packers Thursday at Lambeau Field. Teddy Bridgewater did not practice all week because of an ankle injury. If he is unable to play, Christian Ponder will start in his place. The Vikings list two players as out, one as questionable and six as probable for Thursday’s game.
In less than 24 hours a huge match-up will take place for the Vikings team that’s already been through a lot this season. The Vikings will take on the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, Wis.
Receiver Jarrett Boykin will miss the Green Bay Packers’ game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night with a groin injury. Boykin hasn’t practiced this week. He also missed Sunday’s 38-17 win over the Chicago Bears. The absence of Boykin should mean more opportunities for rookies Davante Adams and Jeff Janis in the Packers’ three-receiver sets.
Building a successful working relationship between a quarterback and receiver requires a lot of time and communication. After seven years together, there are few better combinations in the NFL than the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson.
The Minnesota Vikings are set to take on the Green Bay Packers on “Thursday Night Football,” and these are both two teams that are starting to turn their season around. Former NFL quarterback Steve Beuerlein of CBS Sports took a few moments to speak about the NFC North contest this Thursday.
Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
The Minnesota Vikings recorded over 200 yards rushing against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The offensive line was a big part of rookie Jerick McKinnon and veteran Matt Asiata’s big days. The Vikings made a roster move by signing quarterback Chandler Harnish to the practice squad and released wide receiver Donte Foster. Former Vikings safety Jamarca Sanford signed with the Washington Redskins.
Teddy Bridgewater is progressing. But will he be ready for kickoff against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday? It could be a game-day decision. Remember two years ago when Christian Ponder had to give way to Joe Webb in the playoffs? It’s ironic that Ponder now serves as the backup. He’s waiting in the wings to prove he can still play.
The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers meet for the first time in 2014 on Thursday in Lambeau Field. Both teams are coming off solid wins which got them into a tie for second place in the NFC North Division. The Packers offense is a one-dimensional passing attack right now and the defense is solid against the pass and awful against the run.
