Aaron Rodgers has thrown 26 straight TDs against NFC North opponents since his last INT, the 3rd longest by any QB since the merger in 1970. With 1 more, he'll move into a tie with himself for second place. With 2 more, he'll move into a tie with himself for first place.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
The fear is that #Packers stellar OL Elgton Jenkins tore his ACL, source said. Would be a significant blow, but he'll have an MRI to determine the full extent.
Matt LaFleur pulls out the bag of tricks on that third-and-1. Aaron Rodgers hands off to Randall Cobb, and then the former college QB pitches to AJ Dillon left for 7 yards. A bit complicated for a short-yardage play, but it worked, and looked awfully nifty.
Packers lose by three. Defense is the reason why, but Mason Crosby also clanked a field goal shorter than an extra point off the upright.
Week 1- Za'Darius Smith Week 2-Elgton Jenkins Week 3-MVS Week 4-Jaire Alexander Week 5- Kevin King Week 6- Josh Myers Week 7- N/A Week 8- Robert Tonyan Week 9- Eric Stokes Week 10- Aaron Jones Week 11- Elgton Jenkins twitter.com/chancellortv/s…
First Aaron Rodgers doesn't see a wide-open Davante Adams over the middle, then he holds onto the ball for way too long and fumbles (Packers recovered). Not the best start for 12.
Valdes-Scantling had four receptions on 10 targets for 123 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Vikings.
Valdes-Scantling moved into the starting lineup with Allen Lazard (shoulder) missing the contest. The 27-year-old took full advantage of the opportunity, breaking off a 75-yard touchdown while nearly matching his total season output in just one game. Lazard's status for Week 12 is still up in the air, so Valdes-Scantling could get another start alongside Davante Adams against the Rams. That scenario could result in another high-usage game for MVS if the latter has to deal with Jalen Ramsey.
Darnell Savage Jr. should have three INTs today. The one he actually caught was wiped out by a roughing penalty. One broken up by Thielen, that one he just couldn't hold onto.
Per @NextGenStats: The Vikings threw five passes to receivers lined up across Kevin King in the first half, most of any Packers defender. On those plays the Vikings had four receptions for 76 yards and a TD.
#Packers OLB Rashan Gary (elbow) will be a game-time decision today against the #Vikings, per source. Gary made the trip and wants to play, but they need him healthy for the long haul and will be cautious.
The Packers had seven 2020 Pro Bowlers. They have missed a combined 34 games this season. Every one has missed at least one. David Bakhtiari (all 11), Za'Darius Smith (10), Jaire Alexander (seven), Elgton Jenkins (three, about to be more), Rodgers, Jones and Adams (all one).
Preston Smith, through three quarters: 5 tackles, three QB hits, two sacks and a forced fumble #Packers
Matt LaFleur calls the defensive 12 men on the field penalty to start the last drive "embarrassing" and "inexcusable." pic.twitter.com/rNjQIbEZ3T
Rasul Douglas has played only 7 of the 19 defensive snaps but he's getting to start this series in place of King.
Among those returning kickoffs for the #Packers during warmups are Randall Cobb, Chandon Sullivan and Patrick Taylor. Amari Rodgers has been working solely on punt returns so far. One of them will replace Malik Taylor, who is inactive.
#Packers OLB Rashan Gary and WR Allen Lazard are both out for the #Vikings game today.
They had like no one back deep to return and Berry still didn't get it very far lol Jordan Love in at QB
Josiah Deguara catches his first TD pass off the extended play. What a job by the second-year TE
Final: Vikings 34, Packers 31 One of the league's best defenses collapsed today. Dropped INTs, too many men on the field, blown coverages. Offense made it close at the end, but Joe Barry's unit costs the Packers in this one. Also lost Jenkins. Green Bay now 8-3 on the season
Injury update: #Packers DL Tyler Lancaster (thumb) is questionable to return. #GBvsMIN
Corey Bojorquez really coming through, catching that snap and still managing to punt it inside the 20 without a return.
Have some respect for that man's family, Kenny Clark.
Kurt Benkert out here punting balls into row Z. Maybe he should stick to his day job. pic.twitter.com/bxxZE5g0B5
De'Vondre Campbell picks his spot there like the Pro Bowler he's been this season, jumping the A gap to blow up Vikings' second-down play. Huge third down here.
Amari Rodgers is the new kickoff returner for the Packers.
Yosh Nijman is in at left tackle. Some Packers are taking a knee.
Penalties on the O-line are killing the Packers today. I believe Jon Runyan Jr. is the only one of the five without one.
NFL's No. 1 tackling team tackling not so well today. Krys Barnes with a big miss there. And I have no idea what Rasul Douglas is doing. Vikings in the red zone.
At least one player on defense came to play today. Tipa Galeai, recently called up, stuffs Ham on third and 1 to force a Vikings punt. Packers need a score here with Vikings receiving the second-half kickoff.
Nice play on that drive was Dominique Dafney laying a solid block on the edge on EQ's reverse. Allowed him to get a couple extra yards and set up the TD pass to Adams.
Kevin King replaces Eric Stokes after Stokes comes up limping.
What a rush by Kingsley Keke to force that INT
Jenkins walking slowly off the field with some help, limping badly on that left knee. This doesn't look good. Yosh Nijman into replace Jenkins on a #Packers offensive line that still hasn't seen David Bakhtiari return from his torn ACL.
Justin Jefferson in the 1Q: 🔥 3 Catches 🔥 104 Yards pic.twitter.com/JMDvlvISGt
Carson Wentz hasn't thrown an INT in 7 of his past 8 games. Wentz and Kirk Cousins are the only QBs in the NFL with 3 or fewer INTs this year (minimum of 200 pass attempts).
"moment how we choose to attack but certainly we feel good about the people we get to throw the ball to and that goes far beyond Justin and Adam. KJ, Tyler Conklin and Dalvin and Alex, there's a lot of production to be had there throwing the football."
Minnesota native Adam Thielen addressed teammates last night about the meaning of the #Vikings-#Packers rivalry … and today they pulled out one of the wildest wins this series has seen. My @nflnetwork postgame interview: pic.twitter.com/HtoIvq81D8
Mason Cole to start at center for #Vikings over Garrett Bradbury
First-year kicker Greg Joseph has five winning or tying field goals in the closing minutes of regulation this season.
Dalvin Cook said he could've scored on his last carry with roughly 80 seconds left, but pulled up. Cook: "I wanted to score so bad but I knew I couldn't give Aaron Rodgers back the football."
#Vikings CB Patrick Peterson, who just returned from IR with a hamstring injury, just walked into the locker room after getting checked out by the medical staff.
With his 0.5 sack, Harrison Smith has extended his franchise record for most sacks by a DB to 15.0.
Notes from Vikings snap counts: -- Everson Griffen only played 39 snaps to DJ Wonnum's 49. -- Vikings used their new three safety look (with Bynum in) on six plays. -- Dede Westbrook played nine snaps. pic.twitter.com/CUEkDDZxEq
#Vikings inactives QB Kellen Mond WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette CB Harrison Hand LB Chazz Surratt G Wyatt Davis
Mike Zimmer after another stressful game: "You know how they say Sunday is fun day? It's not at all."
Xavier Woods will have some nightmares about this day. #GBvsMIN
Everson Griffen, after jumping, unapologetically lines up in the neutral zone on the next play.
#Vikings motion Cook out of the backfield, and call a toss to C.J. Ham on third down.
Vikings pressures allowed, per PFF: Christian Darrisaw: 6 Mason Cole: 5 Oli Udoh: 2 Ezra Cleveland: 2 Brian O'Neill: 1
Dan Chisena really is an elite punt gunner huh
