Week 2 Ups and Downs: Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers

Packers square up against Vikings on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers expected to play

Packers square up against Vikings on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers expected to play

For Minnesota, Thielen caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown.

Packers could have been beaten by the Vikings though kicker Daniel Carlson missed a field goal late in overtime.

As a result of the tie, the Vikings and Packers are now tied atop the NFC North with 1-0-1 records. On the other, how did the Vikings not win that game?

"I thought the call on Danielle on hitting him in the back was awful", Zimmer said.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, meanwhile, allayed fears of a serious injury for Cook, as he reported that the tailback only suffered hamstring cramps.

#4 "Rough" go of it: The NFL's new rules emphasis on roughing the passer doubled the amount of such penalties called in Week 1 year-to-year 2017 to 2018. "It took so many people to get us down there and I thought it was good for our offense to get there". He finished 30-of-42 for 281 yards - including two big Davante Adams drops - and showed just enough mobility to maneuver in the pocket and pretty much his usual razor-sharp accuracy. "I don't' know. I'm trying to bite my tongue but I obviously don't agree with it".

The Brunswick Nuclear Plant in Southport, North Carolina , is just a few miles from where Florence is expected to make landfall. The NHC issued a hurricane watch for the coastal area stretching from SC up through North Carolina and into southern Virginia .

"I have so many emotions running through as far as what a awful call it was", Matthews said. But frustrating to allow a call - when I felt like I did the right thing - it influenced the game. I don't' know. You let me know. you tell me.

Like any other National Football League game, the keys to victory are winning individual matchups - as some say, the matchups within the matchup. To call it at that point in the game is unbelievable. It's a problem that no one can watch a replay of a catch and figure out if the play will be ruled complete or incomplete.

Referee Tony Corrente explained after the game officials believed Matthews picked up Cousins and drove him into the ground.

Cousins is the first Vikings quarterback with 400 yards passing and four TD throws in a game since Daunte Culpepper on October 17, 2004, against the Saints.

The good news for the Packers and their fans (like me) is that Aaron Jones is returning from a two-game suspension next week. In some ways, Zimmer said, the tie may help Minnesota down the road.
