Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings History

The Packers and Vikings have been playing each other since 1961, when the Vikings entered the NFL as an expansion team. The two teams quickly developed a competitive rivalry, with both teams often battling for division titles and playoff spots. The Vikings and Packers meet twice a year as divisional opponents.

The Packers dominated the early years of the rivalry, winning nine of the first 10 meetings between the two teams. However, the Vikings quickly became a force to be reckoned with, winning eight of the next 10 games over Green Bay. The rivalry has been intense ever since, with both teams winning their fair share of games over the years.

Perhaps the most iconic moment in the history of the Packers-Vikings rivalry came in 2009, when the two teams met in the Metrodome for a Monday Night Football game. The Vikings were led by quarterback Brett Favre, who had spent the majority of his career playing for the Packers before retiring and then joining the Vikings for the 2009 season. Favre played a great game, throwing for three touchdowns and leading the Vikings to a 30-23 victory over the Packers.

Over the years, the Packers and Vikings have played some memorable games against each other, including several that have had major playoff implications.
