When acquiring players in the foreign transfer market, Sir Alex Ferguson has had the triumphs of the acquisitions of Cristiano Ronaldo or Ruud Van Nistelrooy and the tribulations of Zoran Tosic and Juan Sebastian Veron. But when shopping in the Premier League, Fergie’s transfer record has been almost flawless.

Win and the Vikings can secure themselves a post season place while the Packers are looking to win and seal themselves a 1st round bye something that should help them as they are just getting healthy again over last few weeks and Rodgers is finding his mojo again. Again the change to divisional match ups in the final week pays off with this classic.
