Vikings at Packers
With the last two home games being rainy days, it ’s been a while since we shared photos from Lambeau Field. Sunday night’s Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers game was cold but dry, so we were able to get back to taking photos from the Packerville, U.S.A. seats in the north end zone. Above, walking to Lambeau from the west along Brookwood Drive.
The view from the north end zone, as you walk in from the concourse level. You may not know that about half of the seating in the bowl is below ground level.

Someone’s helmet, awaiting the action.
Out-for-the-season WR Jordy Nelson during pre-game warm-ups. He was catching passes, but we noticed that he did not run, jump, or put any stress on his knee. He let balls go that a player normally would jump or stretch to catch.
NBC’s Sunday Night Football crew doing the pre-game broadcast from the visitors’ sideline. And in case you’re wondering, yes, they did take the tent down before the game started, so as to not block the view of the fans seated in that area.
