Packers answer 109-yard TD with methodical drive

Cordarrelle Patterson AP

The way the Packers did it wasn’t quite as exciting, but the result was the same.

After the Vikings jumped out to an early lead on Cordarrelle Patterson’s 109-yard return of the opening kickoff for a touchdown, the Packers just evened it up in a more methodical way.

Aaron Rodgers wasn’t perfect, but he converted four third-downs en route to a game-tying touchdown. His 11-yard pass to Jordy Nelson was a thing of beauty, dropped into the one spot of the end zone behind some good coverage.

While Patterson’s play might have been more visually interesting, the way the Packers did it seems more sustainable.

    Funny they didn’t say anything about that holding call that helped them along the way.

    You mean on the Vikings return, right? Yeah, I saw that too. Good call.

    Nope, I’m talking about your left tackle tackling Allen. Good thing he did though, Rodgers wouldn’t be playing now.

    See if there are any honest lavender Larry toads out there that will admit they didn’t deserve that cheap td. The refs are trying to keep MN in the game.

    Let’s not talk penalties after that PI call.

    Like the “interference” on Williams?? Another great call

    The gift of a totally phantom pass interference call leading to a TD should make up for whatever bogus call you may want to invent.

    How many times does a team get hosed by the refs, that end up being a TD for the other team?
    It just seems every week….
    That interference call was just ridiculous..How can you call something that didn’t happen? Why not just call offsides too, cause that didn’t happen? Roughing the Passer didn’t happen, call that..

    ok Viking fans
    I see you re gonna whine and complain about calls and non calls
    ok
    where was the Pass Interference on the play to Jennings ?
    Though so …..typical Viking fans
    Most pathetic franchise in the league with whining fans
    The proof is in this thread

    The PI call was a make up call for the holding, clips, and cheap shots the Packers were doing on the punt return. Besides, he was all over him.

    TT is a genius
    Lacy was a steal!!

  13. vfan76 says: Oct 27, 2013 10:34 PM

    Lacy is getting away with Murder. He’s leading with the helmet on every play.

    Quality play of the Packers will overcome a couple of bad calls/plays that were lucky for the vikings.

    Just an FYI, RBs can use their helmet anyway they want in the middle of the field. Its when they get outside the tackle box that the crown of the helmet rule goes into effect.

    But hey lets not let the facts get in the way of your little pity party.
