The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings rivalry is one of the fiercest in football, and those teams will meet again this Sunday for a Week 8 matchup.

Ahead of that game, Aaron Rodgers had some serious praise for Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.

Zimmer's Vikings are having a brutal start to the season, ranking fourth in the NFC North with a 1-5 record — a stark contrast to the Packers' 5-1 record.

Zimmer only has one losing season in his time with the Vikes, however, and that was a 7-9 campaign in his first year in 2014. That was also after the team had gone 5-10-1 prior to his arrival.

There's certainly no love lost between these NFC North rivals, and some Green Bay purists may not want to hear their QB praise Minnesota's head coach. Rodgers has been surprisingly candid with the media this season, however, and it's cool to hear his real thoughts on Zimmer.

Playing at home on Sunday, the Packers are 7-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook this week.
