In their second game, they face the Minnesota Vikings again at home. However, the Vikings are much too powerful and rely heavily on their defense to shake up Rodgers’ and co. On the other side of the ball, new Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins takes advantage of an inexperienced secondary and leads the Vikings to victory.
With the Packers coming off their first loss of the season, they travel to Washington for their first road game.
