Packers-Vikings recap pt.3

There were four points I made that would ensure a Packer victory this past Saturday over the Vikings. Let’s take a look at them and break down how the Packers did.

1. Pressure Joe Webb under control:

  • Outside of a few early runs and an over-pursue by linebacker Erik Walden, the Packers did a great job containing Joe Webb and forcing him into a lot of horrid passes. The Packers also recorded three sacks. 
  • B+

2. First Contact on Adrian Peterson:

  • Adrian Peterson absolutely bulled over the Packers in two regular season games but the Packers pursuit at the line of scrimmage was phenomenal. AP had a long of 18 yards which came in the fourth quarter and overall 99 yards on 22 carries. An average back running for 99 yards is great but for AP that’s a huge win for the defense. 
  • A

3. Full health at WR:

  • It was nice seeing the big four at wide-out and Jermichael Finley all on the field at once for the first time since week four vs. New Orleans. None of these guys had huge games, but all had big catches at some point in the game. It was easy to see the respect the Vikings had for all these guys, which allowed running back DuJuan Harris to reel in 5 catches for 53 yards. 
  • B

4. DuJuan Harris:

  • Harris didn’t have the flashiest average in the world on Saturday night, (17 for 47) but had 53 yards receiving and a touchdown on the ground to keep the Vikings defense honest. Harris will have to be big again this Saturday night against the 49ers and their front seven who are aggressive and like to hit.
