When the Minnesota Vikings visit Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football next week, they will try to snap a three game losing streak to the rival, undefeated Green Bay Packers.
Meanwhile, as Michael Silver at Yahoo Sports reports, Packers cornerback Charles Woodson is ready to not only extend the streak on Monday -- he is talking openly about winning every single game this season.
"We can talk about it," Woodson said, smiling. "I don’t care. We’re 8-0. We’d love to be 16-0 – love to. It’s a realistic conversation now. We’re halfway there. So yeah, let’s talk about it."
And just to clarify, Woodson isn't simply trying to go 16-0. No, he is talking 19-0.
"I’d love to go undefeated," Woodson said, his voice rising. "I’d absolutely love to. Not just the regular season – the whole thing."
Meanwhile, Packers coach Mike McCarthy is not exactly on board with looking ahead and past opponents.
"I think it’s very premature," McCarthy said of such talk. "Once you get to double-digit wins, those type of goals become more in sight."
The Vikings have dropped all three games to the Packers this decade, which continues an interesting trend of each team running off winning streaks right after one another. Prior to Green Bay's current three game winning streak, the Vikings won three straight against the Packers. Before that, the Packers had won meetings in a row. Prior to that, the Vikings won three, and before that, the Packers won three straight, dating this back-and-forth all the way back to 2003.
