Thursday Night Football Open Thread: Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers

Discuss all the TNF action here.

The Minnesota Vikings take on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field tonight at 8:25pm EST. Unfortunately, Teddy Bridgewater will be inactive for tonight's game for the Vikings, meaning we will get to see the much less entertaining Christian Ponder get the start at QB. I, like many, were looking forward to seeing Bridgewater in his second career game, but it will have to wait.

I was very wrong earlier this week in predicting the outcome of the Monday Night Football game, so I won't to do the same again. That said, I would lean towards the Packers in this one, if only because Aaron Rodgers is in a different universe of talent than Ponder is. They are also playing in Green Bay, which is a pretty miserable place for opposing teams to visit.

Discuss all of the game's action here. I will leave the thread open as always. And remember to set your fantasy lineups! Good night MCM.
