        “L'anno scorso, we didn’t get that good Green Bay weather,” Rodgers disse after the win. “Tonight was one of those nights. We haven’t had a game like this in a while, temperature-wise. It’s just different. The whole feel of it.
        It’s a different ballgame when it’s cold at home and we’ve handled the cold pretty well over the years. So that’s what we’re hoping for in the playoffs.
          AJ Dillon scores a touchdown underneath the Vikings defense.

          For Adams, who was voted to this year’s Pro Bowl after another excellent season, his dominant performance continued his stellar year.

          But with the top spot in the NFC already secured, head coach Matt LaFleur could choose to rest his best players, although he dice the decision will be made this week.
          We’ll kinda play it by ear. We’ll have conversations tomorrow certainly with our staff, we’ll definitely have talks with our players and we’ll make the best decision for us. But if you ask me right now, I’d say my gut is that these guys are going to play at least a little bit next week.
          The Packerswin also clinched a playoff spot for the Philadelphia Eagles and eliminated the Vikings from contention for a postseason spot.
