After last week’s loss against the Rams, the rules were simple for the Vikings. Win the rest of the matches and hope to qualify for the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Vikings, they lost their star quarterback Kirk Cousins to COVID right before the decisive clash against the Packers. Safe to say, the absence of Cousins was clearly visible as the Vikings’ offense looked toothless in their 37-10 loss.

On the other hand, Aaron Rodgers continued his fine form for the Packers. The superstar quarterback not only threw for 288 yards but he also scored two TDs. His stellar performance meant that the Packers were able to clinch the top seed in the NFC thus securing home-field advantage through the playoffs.
