Tonight's game

Who: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings.

Where: Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, Minneapolis, Minn.

When: 8.

TV/radio: TNT, WFNS-AM 910.

Records: Green Bay 3-3, Minnesota 4-2.

Line: Vikings by 4{.

Of note: Since Dennis Green took over in 1992, the Vikings are 7-0 in the weeks before and after a bye, a feat unequaled in the league. Green Bay beat the Vikings 16-10 on opening day, but Minnesota quarterback Warren Moon had yet to settle in at that point, tossing three interceptions. A Packers win really tightens NFC Central race, but no one has given them more trouble than Minnesota in recent years.

Key injuries: Packers _ T Earl Dotson (elbow), G Guy McIntyre (blood clot) are out. Vikings _ LB Dave Garnett (knee) is doubtful; LB Carlos Jenkins (knee) is probable.

Don Banks' pick: Minnesota 26-20.
