Aaron Rodgers is just fine, thank you. 

After struggling with a poor performance in a marquee game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers quarterback threw four touchdown passes last week to calm any fears of a possible slump. 

Now, Rodgers and the Packers (5-1) look to sweep out the Minnesota Vikings (1-5) on Sunday afternoon (1 p.m., FOX) in a November chill at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

Rodgers loves playing the Vikings – he’s 15-8-1 in his career with 5,839 passing yards in 24 games and a remarkable touchdown/interception ratio of 47 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.
