NFL Picks Week 11: Green Bay Packers Vs. Minnesota Vikings

Brett Favre is visiting his old team but the fanfare isn't as high with the Minnesota Vikings standing at a disappointing 3-6. The Green Bay Packers on the other hand are soaring -- all the way to No. 2 in SB Nation's Week 11 power rankings -- and they don't seem to be slowing down. The Packers have won three in a row as the Vikings come stumbling in with three losses in their last four.

Favre struggled last week in the Vikings loss and that's probably not a good sign as he prepares to face the No. 1 defense in the NFL. The Packers have given up just seven points in their last two games and they face the 27th ranked Vikings offense. That's not a good combination for Minnesota.

The Packers offense is just as dangerous as their defense as they rank 9th in the league in points scored led by QB Aaron Rodgers. The Vikings defense ranks 9th against the pass and 9th against the run so they'll need to slow down a Packers offense that put up 45 points last week.

The Packers are three point road favorites and with the Vikings season going down the toilet, you can expect a Packers victory. Green Bay will roll by a touchdown or more.
