The big question is whether or not rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) will play for the Vikings. Bridgewater completed 19-of-30 passes for 317 yards Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in his first career start. If he can't play, Christian Ponder will start for the Vikings.
Minnesota Vikings (+8.5) at Green Bay Packers
Teddy Bridgewater is a game-time decision and is coming off a terrific game in which he looked like a 10-year veteran, but I think that has as much to do with the Falcons defense than the play of Bridgewater. If he plays Thursday night his test will be a little more difficult but still manageable as the Packers defense is not by any means overwhelming.
Pick (assuming Bridgewater plays): Packers win, Vikings cover
