Is the 2020 NFL season the beginning of the end for Aaron Rodgers, or is it that start of another MVP-caliber campaign for the Green Bay quarterback? That and many more questions will start to be answered when the Packers and Minnesota square off in a game on Fox that could be crucial in determining the NFC North champion.
Much has been made about Green Bay selecting quarterback Jordan Love with its first pick in the draft while also not drafting any new wideouts, but the Packers remain a divisional favorite and will try to replicate the success they had during last year's 13-3 season that ended in the NFC Championship. Last season Rodgers battled injuries and finished outside the top seven in passing yards, passing touchdowns and total quarterback rating.
Minnesota, meanwhile, finished last year 10-6 and were upended in the Divisional round by San Francisco. Kirk Cousins signed a two-year contract extension this spring worth $66 million. It wasn't all good news for Cousins, however, as the Vikings sent his favorite receiver Stefon Diggs to Buffalo for five draft picks. Minnesota used one of those picks to draft wide receiver Justin Jefferson with the 22nd pick.
The Vikings have emerged as a slight favorite over the Packers in Week 1 despite being swept by Green Bay in 2019. The two teams have combined to win 14 of the 18 division titles since the NFC North was formed in 2002.
