Green Bay defense has no problem stifling Kirk Cousins-less Vikings

The Green Bay defense caught a break not having to face Kirk Cousins and they made the most of it as they held the Vikings to 10 points in their Week 17 win.

Fantasy Impact:

While the Packers defense didn't register any turnovers in Week 17 they did shut down the Minnesota offense as they only allowed 194 yards passing and 27 yards rushing along with adding two sacks. It likely would have been a different story had Cousins played but instead the Packers took full advantage of backup QB Sean Mannion. The Packers play the Lions in Week 18 but given Green Bay's playoff seeding is locked up it will be a tough game to predict since a lot of starters might be absent.
