Mike Zimmer is 6-7-1 vs. Green Bay as the Vikings head coach. He'll look to get back to .500 in the series, and help his team get back to .500 for the year on Sunday afternoon. He met with reporters Wednesday.

The lack of involvement for Justin Jefferson was glaring in Minnesota’s two recent losses. Coach Mike Zimmer made a point to pull Jefferson aside and assure him the ball was coming his way. The result of the renewed commitment was predictably positive for the Vikings at a time they needed it most.

Kirk Cousins threw 11 passes to Jefferson in the 27-20 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. They had nine completions for 143 yards.

The Vikings aim to maintain their aggressiveness this week.

Kickoff Sunday between the 4-5 Vikings and 8-2 Packers is set for noon at U.S. Bank Stadium.
