OUR PICK: As of this writing, we don't know if Mike Zimmer will choose Hill or Sam Bradford as his starting quarterback for Sunday night's game. It doesn't matter, however, as the Vikings will once again have to rely on Peterson and their running game no matter who is under center. The under is 6-2 in the Vikings' last eight games in September, is 11-4 in their last 15 games versus the NFC and is 13-5-1 in their last 19 games overall. The under is also 4-1 in the Packers' last five games versus divisional opponents.
