Supporting cast fails Kirk Cousins in intro to Packers-Vikings rivalry

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

After the Vikings tied the game, Aaron Rodgers set up Mason Crosby for a game-winning 52-yard field goal. Before his would-be game-winner sailed wide right, Carlson was challenged with hitting a 49-yard field goal after Minnesota's first overtime drive stalled. Both plays were significant considering the game resulted in a tie.

Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers played with a brace on his injured left knee and threw for 281 yards and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams. The Vikings quarterback completed 35 of 48 passes for 425 yards and four touchdowns, including a 22-yarder to Adam Thielen with 31 seconds left in regulation. Stefon Diggs caught a 2-point conversion pass to tie it at 29. The Packers will go to Washington -losers to the Colts at home on Sunday - in Week 3, return home to face the winless Buffalo Bills in Week 4, go back on the road to face the winless Detroit Lions in Week 5 and then come back to Green Bay to play the San Francisco 49ers in primetime in Week 6.

"I think he gave me a lot of good experience in front of big crowds, big games", Carlson said. "I have so many emotions running through as far as what a bad call it was", Matthews said. If there was somebody on our team who I know that can mentally and emotionally handle it, it's DC.

"He picked up the quarterback and drove him into the ground", Corrente told a pool reporter. "It took so many people to get us down there and I thought it was good for our offense to get there".

He got around 15 people to higher ground and the Coast Guard transported some of them to hospital for medical issues. The storm is tracked to move across the western Carolinas and then curve over the Ohio Valley on Monday and Tuesday.

This week, Matthews was once again called for the same penalty and it negated an interception that likely would've given the Packers a win.

And though the Packers remain unbeaten two weeks into the season, Rodgers admits the tie is nearly as bad as losing. Operating out of shotgun or pistol formations also bought Rodgers more time.

The most effective unit for the Packers defense on the day was the interior linemen.

Thielen had 12 catches for 131 yards for Minnesota (1-0-1), while Diggs had nine catches for 128 yards and two scores. I got my head across, put my hands down. They're gonna say, you know. With Laquon Treadwell and Stacy Coley being negatives at the third receiver spot, it was on Diggs and Thielen to carry the Vikings passing attack, and they did just that.
