The 12-3 Vikings travel to division rival Green Bay on Sunday with a chance to squash the Packers’ playoff hopes with a victory at Lambeau Field.

The Vikings’ only double digit win this season came against the Packers in a week-1, 23-7 victory. Justin Jefferson led Minnesota’s offense with 184 yards receiving with two touchdowns.

Last week against the Giants, Jefferson surpassed Randy Moss’ team record of 1,632 receiving yards. Jefferson also broke¬†Cris Carter’s record of 122 catches in a season.

Jefferson is now closing in on Calvin Johnson’s NFL record 1,964 receiving yards in a season. Jefferson needs 209 yards.

Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander described Jefferson’s week-1 performance as, “a fluke.”

The Packers are 7-8 and teetering on the playoff line. If the Vikings beat the Packers this weekend and the Lions beat Chicago, Green Bay would be eliminated from playoff contention. A Packers loss to Minnesota and a Commanders win over Cleveland would also eliminate Green Bay.

Kickoff at Lambeau Field is scheduled for 3:25 p.m. on Sunday.
