Carlson misses 2 FGs in OT, Vikings and Packers tie

On many occasions, Rodgers was able to stand in the pocket for several seconds without being bothered, and it was all the more important with his mobility diminished.

The Kendricks call resulted in this tweet from Mike Pereira, who was once in charge of officiating for the National Football League and is now a rules expert on Fox. They would win the NFC North with an 8-7-1 record over the 8-8 Chicago Bears.

Matthews was livid about the call - the second against him in two weeks for roughing the passer. The hit wasn't late by any stretch of the imagination, wasn't punishable due to the new "full body weight" rule, and was simply a tackle. "It has nothing to do with helmet to helmet. He picked the quarterback up and drove him into the ground".

Rodgers was 30 of 42 for 281 yards. I got my head across, put my hands down.

Daniel Carlson could be a key for the Vikings because he's a kicker, and could be a key every game.

The shaky officiating call and the lack of clutch kicking certainly left a lot to be desired, but it shouldn't undercut the QB performances.

But the star quarterback was fit to start though did sport a large brace on his left knee.

"He has a pretty unusual injury that would keep most people out a while", a source told ESPN.

The Packers mostly played well around Rodgers, too, with the O-line doing a nice job in the ground game and giving their injured quarterback enough time to work. And the special teams was strong up until Crosby's final miss. Crosby had three field goals in the fourth quarter. Cousins was marvelous, thowing for 425 yards, four TDs and one interception, which wasn't his fault. While Green Bay had plenty of opportunities to put the game away for good, including Davante Adams dropping touchdown catches on consecutive plays, one play in particular stood out to everybody.

But Cousins never flinched. The Vikings division titles in 2009, 2015, and 2017 all came after they pulled off wins in Wisconsin. When less mobile in the past, Rodgers has been forced to act with urgency on each pass play, and getting the ball out with urgency (not necessarily faster) has often been good for the Packers offense as a whole. The victor would have a significant advantage when the division victor is named at the end of the season.
