Packers-Vikings rivalry began in 1961, when the Minnesota Vikings entered the league as an expansion team. The rivalry is known for its many close games and the parity of the all-time series. It is also considered to be one of the most intense rivalries in the National Football League, due to both teams being located in the same division since the Vikings’ inception, and the fact that the two states (Minnesota and Wisconsin) are geographically located side by side, thereby allowing them to compete in multiple sports in other leagues such as the Big Ten Conference. The series between the Universities of Wisconsin and Minnesota is the most-played rivalry in NCAA Division I football, having been played since 1890. Since then, the only year the teams did not play is 1906.

Notable Packers-Vikings Last 10 Years Rivalry Facts

  • A missed 52-yard field goal try by the Packers’ Mason Crosby with 26 seconds remaining sealed a hard-fought 28-27 Vikings win at Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome on November 9, 2008. Gus Frerotte overcame three interceptions (one returned 55 yards by the Packers’ Nick Collins for a third-quarter Green Bay touchdown) to throw two touchdowns while Adrian Peterson rushed for 192 yards and the decisive touchdown with 2:22 to go in the fourth. Aaron Rodgers threw for 142 yards but in the second quarter fumbled in the endzone and was flagged for intentional grounding, giving a safety to the Vikings; Jared Allen then sacked Rodgers in the Packers endzone with 52 seconds left in the first half for another Vikings safety.
  • Monday Night Football earned the highest ratings in cable television history on October 5, 2009 when the Vikings hosted the Packers. The game was the first meeting between the Packers and their former quarterback Brett Favre. With the Vikings wearing throwback uniforms evoking memories of seasons from the 1960s they took over the game when Aaron Rodgers was sacked at the Vikings 33-yard line and fumbled. The Vikings drove downfield as Adrian Peterson rushed six times for 26 yards and Favre threw five times, ending in a one-yard touchdown to Visanthe Shiancoe. Rodgers managed a 62-yard touchdown to Jermichael Finley, and after an exchange of touchdowns (a 14-yard Favre pass to Sidney Rice and a Clay Matthews strip-tackle of Peterson returned 42-yards) Favre raced the Vikings to the Packers redzone; a pass to the endzone was picked off but the play was nullified on pass interference, and one play later Peterson rushed in another score. The Vikings never let the Packers closer as they won 30-23, taking a 4-0 record in the 2009 season’s first quarter. In the ensuing rematch at Lambeau Field on November 1 Favre erupted with four touchdowns while the Vikings defense snuffed out a late Packers rally for a 38-26 Vikings win.
  • The Packers ended Brett Favre’s winning streak against them in a 28-24 win at Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football on October 24, 2010. Three Favre interceptions helped the Packers surge to the 28-24 lead but Favre led a late comeback; an endzone catch by Percy Harvin with 57 seconds remaining was nullified when review showed one foot out of bounds, and the Vikings failed to convert a touchdown in their final attempt. Favre suffered injury to his left ankle that left his season in doubt and coach Brad Childress was livid with the officiating crew led by Scott Green. In the November 21 rematch, the Packers routed the Vikings 31-3 behind four Aaron Rodgers touchdown passes, making Rodgers 2-2 against Favre in his career. The loss dropped the Vikings to 3-7, all but eliminating them from playoff contention. Childress was then fired by the Vikings the next day, and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was promoted to replace him. The Packers, on the other hand, went on to win their fourth Super Bowl.
  • Adrian Peterson came up nine yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson’s 1984 rushing record but his late scamper set up the winning field goal in a 37-34 Vikings win on December 30, 2012. The Packers erased a 20-10 halftime gap but could not close out the win while the Vikings advanced to the playoffs as the NFC’s sixth seed.
  • On January 5, 2013 the Packers defeated the Vikings 24-10 in the Wild Card round just six days after falling to the Vikings in Week 17. The two teams split their regular season games with the home team winning each game. The Playoff game had the same result, being at Lambeau, however the Packers were able to hold Adrian Peterson under 100 yards after he had run for 210 and 199 yards respectively in the first two meetings.
  • The Packers and Vikings played for the division crown in Week 17 of the 2015 season at Lambeau Field. The Vikings won the contest 20-13, winning their first divisional title since 2009 and breaking the Packers’ four-year streak of being division champions.
  • On the first game in U.S. Bank Stadium, week 2 of the 2016-2017 season, the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Green Bay Packers 17-14 en route to a 5-0 start to the season, but would miss the playoffs at 8-8 while Green Bay recovered from a 4-6 start to the season to finish 10-6, winning the NFC North and advancing to the NFC Championship.
  • On October 15, 2017, Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr knocked Aaron Rodgers out of the game with a quarterback hit midway through the first quarter. Shortly after, Rodgers was revealed to have broken his collarbone, and it was severe enough that he had surgery on October 19 before being placed on injured reserve the next day. The hit created controversy as some accused Barr of a dirty hit, though Barr himself defended his actions and said he never meant to hurt Rodgers. The hit changed both seasons dramatically, as the Packers’ eight-year streak of playoff berths ended with a 7-9 record after starting 4-1 while the Vikings finished 13-3 and won the NFC North, losing to the eventual Super Bowl LII champion Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.
  • On December 23, 2017, the Vikings won 16 to 0; the first time the Vikings shut out the Packers at Lambeau Field and Minnesota’s first sweep of Green Bay since 2009.
