Packers haven't allowed 100-yard rusher since San Francisco RB Frank Gore in season opener while Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has rushed for 100 or more yards in five straight games, matching Robert Smith's franchise record. Peterson has already established new Vikings career mark by rushing for 1,000 yards in five seasons. ... Peterson's average of 5.8 yards per carry is about a yard better than that of league's other top rushers. ... Of Vikings DE Jared Allen's 115 career sacks, 12 1/2 have been of Aaron Rodgers, including his single-game high of 4 1/2 on Oct. 5, 2009. ... Packers have won last nine against NFC North opponents. ... Packers have won four straight against Vikings, and have swept season series four of the past six years. ... Packers WR Greg Jennings expected back after missing last seven games with torn muscle in abdomen. ... Fifteen of last 19 regular-season games have been decided by seven points or less. ... Green Bay's 38-point win in last year's series finale was largest by either team in 50-year rivalry. ... Christian Ponder and Aaron Rodgers both made first career starts in the rivalry. ... Green Bay has won 23 of its last 25 regular-season games at home.
