Vikings-Packers showcase features teams fighting for playoff lives


November 26, 2018

Since the NFL instituted flexible scheduling in 2006, to ensure it could showcase compelling games in its Sunday-night time slot every week, few matchups have been served to a national TV audience more frequently than Vikings-Packers.

The two teams will meet on Sunday night for the 11th time in prime time since 2006, renewing a rivalry that has become catnip to television networks because of high-stakes matchups like the NFC North title game between the teams in 2015, story arcs like Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field with the Vikings and pitched atmospheres that come with two fan bases that interact enough to get good and sick of one another.
