Vikings vs. Packers 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Dilip Vishwanat

Minnesota looks to bounce back from a loss last week and keep pace in the NFC Wild Card race.

The Minnesota Vikings remain on the road for another challenging NFC North game on Sunday when they face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Both teams should be ready to return to the field after disappointing losses in Week 12 of the NFL season. Those losses by the Vikings and Packers left first place in the division to the Chicago Bears.

The Vikings turned the ball over three times and struggled to move the ball on offense leading to a 28-10 loss to the Bears at Soldier Field. Minnesota played without dynamic wide receiver Percy Harvin. Harvin has been out since injuring his ankle on Nov. 4th against the Seattle Seahawks and remains a question mark to play on Sunday.

The Packers ran into similar problems on the road against the New York Giants. Green Bay turned the ball over twice while the Giants sacked Aaron Rodgers five times before finishing off the Packers 38-10 on Sunday night.

The game is scheduled to kick off at 12 p.m. CT and will be televised on FOX.
