EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WCCO) — There are so many story lines this week for the first game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers in 2016.

Forgetting the new stadium for a minute, there is a football game they are focusing on at Winter Park. And who might play quarterback for the Vikings. WCCO’s Mike Max set out to get some answers, and got a whole lot of questions.

So let’s wtih the quarterback question. Will it be Shaun Hill?

“You’re asking the wrong person,” Hill said. “In other words, I prepare the same regardless.”

Does that mean it’s Sam Bradford?

“You’ll have to ask coach Zimmer that,” Bradford said.

Actually, we did ask “Zim” and he said:

“You will have to wait until Sunday,” Zimmer said.

So the question is did they figure something out last year in beating Green Bay to win the division title? And have they found some different ways to defend Aaron Rodgers? The answer is, at least publicly, maybe.

See winning at Green Bay to become division champions, that’s big stuff. Or did they just poke an angry Packer?

“That was last year but at the same time we beat those guys at home so we know they’re going to come out with revenge,” Captain Munnerlyn said. “They want a revenge attitude and they feel like it’s their division to have.”

So winning last season means something this year, or does it?

“Well I mean you’re talking about last year too. We’re only in the second game of the season this year so we’ve got to put it on tape Sunday and see how it goes from there,” defensive end Brian Robison said.
