The negative reaction from Packers fans wasn’t enough to stop Vikings QB Brett Favre from leading his team to a 38-26 victory.
Said Vikings DT Pat Williams, who had a sack, “Everybody made it about Brett all week, but it was
all about our team. We don’t put nobody on top of nobody else around here.”
Vikings WR/KR Percy Harvin finished with 261 total yards, including a long touchdown catch.
Vikings DE Ray Edwards had one of the best games of his career, racking up two sacks, two tackles for losses and two passes defended.
Missed tackles and broken containment plagued the Vikings defense in the second half as they allowed the Packers back into the game.
Some of the six sacks allowed by the Packers were the result of poor blocking and others came because QB Aaron Rodgers held the ball too long.
Said Packers CB Charles Woodson, “That’s what we are. Right now we can’t win the big game.”
Although TE Spencer Havner had two touchdown catches, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel feels the Packers missed TE Jermichael Finley.
Packers DT Johnny Jolly picked up a personal foul for headbutting Vikings RB Chester Taylor, helping extend a drive that wound up in a touchdown.
Packers RB Ahman Green had two carries and moved ahead of Jim Taylor into first place on the franchise’s rushing attempts list.
