Vikings earn first shutout since 1993 in 16-0 victory over Packers

Getty Images

A frigid night, a battered Packers team and another stellar defensive performance carried the Minnesota Vikings to their first shutout victory in over 24 years Saturday night in Green Bay.

Stefon Diggs caught a 4-yard touchdown, Harrison Smith intercepted Brett Hundley twice and Kai Forbath booted three field goals as the Vikings earned a 16-0 victory over the Packers to improve to 12-3 on the season.

The Packers were without Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Davante Adams, Damarious Randall and Jahri Evans before the ball was even kicked off. They would lose right tackle Jason Spriggs (knee), wide receiver Jordy Nelson (shoulder), tight end Richard Rodgers (shoulder), running back Aaron Jones (knee) and wide receiver Geronimo Allison over the course of Saturday night’s game as well.

Hundley completed just 17 of 40 passes for 130 yards against the Vikings. The few receivers Hundley had remaining to work with dropped several passes that could have helped Green Bay remain in the game. The Packers also were unable to convert on a pair of fourth downs in Minnesota territory that allowed the Vikings to keep points off the board.

The Vikings didn’t do anything special offensively against the Packers, but they didn’t have to either. Case Keenum completed 14 of 25 passes for 139 yards with a touchdown pass to Diggs. Latavius Murray and Jerrick McKinnon combined for 111 yards rushing on the ground.

Minnesota did lose left guard Nick Easton to a right ankle injury late in the first quarter. Long snapper Kevin McDermott was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury just before halftime and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen did not return due to an ankle injury as well.

Forbath converted a 49-yard field goal to get Minnesota on the board on their opening possession. A 39-yard pass interference penalty against Josh Hawkins set up Diggs’ 4-yard touchdown late in the quarter to give the Vikings a 10-0 cushion at halftime.

Forbath would add field goals from 20 and 27 yards in the second half to give Minnesota the 16-0 victory.

It was the first shutout by the Vikings since a 13-0 victory over the Detroit Lions on Dec. 5, 1993.

  1. It wasn’t an exciting game by any stretch but Vikings shut out the Packers at Lambeau. Defense is outstanding again.

  2. I have no love for GB as a long time Vikings fan, but the Packers played as well as they could given the conditions and their injuries. They hung tough, but the better team won. Nothing to be ashamed about.

  3. Shutout at Lambeau Field. The most deluded fanbase in America just went into collective apoplexy. Yes, Aaron Rodgers is a great QB and you miss him but at what point is there an admission that this team is dependent on just one player.

  4. Oh, I feel so sorry for their losses. How about the vikings losing 2 quarterback’s starting running back, long snapper, left tackle, right guard, etc. Gee i’m just crying for them! ha…..

  5. Packers get shut out at home for the 2nd time this season, this time by the Minnesota Vikings, how about that?!! but to think back to last season the Vikings had one of the more injury riddled season’s in recent memory in the NFL,numerous Pack fans laughed at that reasoning for our collapse and always claimed we always have these “excuses”. Its fun to watch how the tables have turned and see the same fans completely dissapear from this website, Karma sucks doesn’t it?

    Looking back at last offseason its hilarious to think about the cheeseheads that claimed the Pack were going to flip Hundley for at least a 1st and 4th round draft pick after the 2017 season.

    Hundley got a chance to prove his worth after Rodgers’ injury but has exploited this awful roster that arodg has carried for years, imagine if rodgers opts out and signs w/ a team that actually has a good defense.

    Now, the Vikings have one of the better rosters in the NFL and will have a top defense for a while w/ Joseph, Rhodes, Griffen, and SMith being locked up this offseason and numbers show we will be able re-sign at least 3 out of the 4 Hunter, Kendricks, Barr and Diggs, but could sign all 4.

    The Vikings are king of the north for the 2nd time in the last 3 years.

    Do cheeseheads get to use the same “excuses”? or will they just continue to brag about their “world” championships?

  6. Props to Vikings for their impressive shut out of the Pack tonight. Solid up and down the roster. GB defense played well (for them) tonight, but conditions were brutal and in a dome, this would have been a 20+ point butt-kicking. Good luck in the playoffs. As a Pack fan, I can say it would be pretty cool if you were to ride this season all the way to cap it off with an SB victory in your own house. Out.

  7. Green Bay fans, your team showed some real heart tonight considering all the starters you guys are missing. Let’s just hope next year BOTH teams can be healthy for BOTH games of 2018-2019. They’re much more fun when both teams stars are in the game. Your QB played fine, his receivers let him down. Could have been a much different game if those drops don’t happen.

  8. We got the win, but it sure wasn’t pretty at all. Plenty to be concerned about. Injuries, and poor play. Offense didn’t do anything, defense had a shutout, but, GB dropped a lot of passes. So even though it was a shutout, this game never felt like it was in the bag.

    I really want Zim to grab diggs by the hand, sit him down, and tell him to grow up and start to act like you belong in the game. I’m so sick of seeing him celebrate every first down catch like it’s the first time he’s ever caught a first down. That immaturity is going to cost us big in the future. Mark my words on that.

    Maybe I’m being a big negative nelly here, but just was never happy with how this game played out. Yes, we won. But, it wasn’t convincing.

  9. The Vikings are indeed 16 points better than the Packers practice squad. This victory shall strike fear into the hearts of any that should oppose them in the playoffs.

    Congrats on the win.

  10. Remember all that talk from the Packers fans about getting even with the Vikings for the Rogers hit?

  11. Harrison Smith in his post game interview:

    “It felt like a home game.”

    SKOL chant was the loudest cheer of the day.

    Despite the large Viking fan attendance, Lambeau Field was not sold out again – only 78,092 tickets sold – well over 3,000 unsold tickets.

    You’d think Spieldope would’ve learned his lesson when he found himself unprepared for Bridgewater’s injury.

    ///////////////////////

    How is that Hundley fellow working out for you😂

  13. The Vikings defense didn’t do anything special either. They faced a bad QB, a coach who is incapable without Rodgers (this is the biggest reason), and the receivers were pretty bad. Waynes did interfere at the end, but probably better for the Packers to be shut out, and they probably would’ve been even with that call. They will keep their ‘highly successful’ coach, but at least some of the loyal to a fault fans might start seeing how bad he is.

  14. Pack defense played good enough to win. It’s a shame the Packers don’t have anyone that can freaking catch the ball. Good Lord. Stadium was packed. Another sell-out. Approximately 1 in 10 was a Viking fan.

  15. Well it was hard to watch my Packers.. McCarthy needs to be gone if he does not have a new DC and hopefully a 4-3 defense. Not sure why they don’t throw Joe Callahan out there to see what he’s got. Hundley is not cutting it.

  16. This team is Super Bowl Bound! They’ll get the #2 seed. If Philly survives the Divisional Round, this defense will be up to the task on the road in cold weather. If Philly gets knocked out, then the Sb will go through MN all the way to the end. The stars are aligning for the Purple.

  17. The Keenum-to-Diggs 49 yard defensive pass interference call was so Rodgers-esque.

    Harrison Smith is a stud!

    The Vikings looked like the outdoor stadium team. Packers couldn’t handle the cold.

  18. GB fans booing Hundley. Totally classless from a city with multiple SBs and the likes of Rodgers and Favre.
    Hope they never get a great QB again. They don’t deserve it

  19. Good job Packers. I know it is tough being out there when you are so over matched, but way to give it a strong effort. I just felt so badly for your players as they kept getting beaten up and pushed all over the field. It made my heart hurt for your plucky little band of over achievers.

    Better luck next year. You should get Rodgers back and you’ll be able to compete with the Lions for second place in the division and maybe even a wild card slot! Won’t that be exciting?

    I just love so much about you, the never say die optimism and the loyalty you show to the coaches! I’m sure I speak for the Vikings organization when we say we just can’t wait to see what Dom Capers pulls out of his bag of tricks for you next year!

    Best of luck, and keep that chin up! As long as you keep fighting no one can ever call you a loser, whatever the outcome. With the fight you just showed, you’re all winners in my book.

  20. The Packers never stood a chance against the Viking defense. It was a rather mundane game, but a much needed win for playoff seedings.

  21. And Harrison Smith showed why Pro Bowl voting is a joke. The best safety in football doesn’t get voted to go to the Pro Bowl. Pathetic.

  22. Four out of the last five to the Vikes in this series…the only Packers win in that span came at the end of last year when the Vikings were on their 3rd starting LT of the season and were decimated by injuries…so I know what Packers fans went through tonight …but I do give the players that did play for them a lot of credit…they fought hard and made it another tough division game and were a couple drops away from making it even more of a close game…I was happy to see the Vikings pick up a win in a game where they never really got the offense clicking…Keenum missed a couple open receivers, most notably the overthrow to a wide open Thielen…but I pretty much expected a low scoring game like we saw…hopefully Easton, McDermott, Reiff and Stephen don’t have any serious injuries…

  23. So, packer fans, since January of last year you declared victory in the Super Bowl this year in the Vikings new stadium. Even your president said it would happen. So…now what? Are you just going to resort to the depravity of people like tokyosandblaster, wishing and cheering injury to Viking players? Go look up his posts from today; he openly says he gets pleasure out of seeing Viking players injured. I’d like to think most packer fans are not like that…

  24. Despite winning, the Viking offense seems to be less effective than earlier in the season. I doubt that they can go far into the playoffs despite having a bye and home field advantage. Case Keenum is coming back down to earth, it appears.

  25. Hundley is the worst QB in the NFL. He makes guys like Mark Sanchez and Brock Osweiler look like Johnny Unitas.
    In fact, Hundley is one of the worst QB’s I have seen, and I have been watching the NFL since 1960.
    Mike McCarthy is showing what a fraud he is. He’s had this reputation as a “great head coach” for two reasons — Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. Without those guys, we see McCarthy for what he is, an over-rated head coach who should have been fired after that playoff loss to Seattle when he completely lost control of his team and coached not to loose the game instead of coaching to win it.
    I am a Packers fan since 1960 and I have stayed with them through the bad times as well as the good. But I can’t stand to watch them with Hundley at QB. The only thing he knows how to do is chew gum, and I’m surprised he doesn’t fall down while he’s chewing it. He has no idea how to play QB in the NFL. None. He makes the same mistakes every week and shows no improvement what so ever.
    If Hundley is on the Packers roster next season, I will be shocked. If he’s even in the NFL next season, I’ll be shocked. He is horrible. But knowing how stubborn Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy are, he’ll probably still be the Packers back up QB.
    As for the Vikings — I don’t know if they had a let down after clinching the division last week, but Vikings fans better hope they play better in the playoffs than they did last night. Because they were playing an outgunned team with a horrible QB and they certainly didn’t look like world beaters in that game, either. The truth is, they should have put up about 35 points on the Packers last night. And shutting out the Packers with Hundley at QB is no big deal, either. A high school team might do that to them with Hundley at QB.

  26. It wasn’t the best of conditions, but it’s always nice to come away with a road win. I was hoping they’d run with McKinnon a bit more to try and stretch the defence, but they ran more with Murray instead and Daniels was up to the challenge. The guy always shows up strong vs the Vikings. Kudos to David Morgan for the ob he did filling in at long snapper. It’s amazing how much Zimmer has transformed this team. From 1999 until Zim’s arrival in 2014, the Vikings did not manage a single season where they had a better than .500 record on the road. Now they’ve done it 2 of the last 3 years.

    Respect to the Packers for what they’ve accomplished over the last decade plus. 8 playoff appearances in a row and 9 in 10 years is impressive. Whomever is in charge of the Pack next year will have some nice pieces to work with. There just has to be a willingness to invest in the young veterans. Those comp draft picks don’t have the same value they did when TT started. Merry Christmas.

  27. Enjoyed being at the game tonight. It was sure nice to head to a warmer climate like Green Bay. Cheer up cheeseheads, at least your Winters are nowhere near as bad as ours here in Minnesota.

  28. 75 percent of the crowd gone before the game ended.

    Most of those left are the Viking fans.

    I think Stella is already home in Wausau.

  29. Was it Waffles or Cabbage Patch that claimed that the real Packer fans don’t sell their season tickets.

    We’ll there aren’t many real Packer fans then, based on all the purple in the stands to witness the Packers QB of the future get shutout again at Lambert Field.

  30. Will the NFL enforce their rules and make the Packers release Aaron Rodgers?

    “NFL rules stipulate that a player needs to have suffered a new injury that would sideline him at least six weeks to be placed on injured reserve and, if that is not the case, the team is obligated to release the player once he is healthy.”

    The Packers were free to make Rodgers inactive for the rest of the season – that’s always ateam option.

    But TT put Rodgers back on IR, without Aaron suffering a new injury that would cause him to be sidelined for an additional 6 weeks.

    This could be interesting…🤔

  31. The Vikings do not look like a Super bowl contender. Give em credit for getting their 1st shutout in 24 years though…and a JV, banged up squad.

    ____

    When is the last time you saw a team play in less than 10 degrees that looked like a SB contender? The weather does have an impact.

    As for the Packers, they played pretty well last week with Rodgers, had a chance to tie Carolina on the road. Without Rodgers, at home, against a hated rival, they looked uninspired. Mccarthy needs to go…..

  32. Yeah the game was brutal to watch. Vikings offense couldn’t get consistent extended drives, but that’s due to horrible field condition. I’m not worry about the tean at all. I’m sure any team would’ve played the same I the same terrible field like that.
    And Vikings will play better if the field was better, especially at home.

  34. With Hundley playing quarterback a good high school team could have shut the Pack out. Green Bay needs to draft a good back up QB.

    You’d think Spieldope would’ve learned his lesson when he found himself unprepared for Bridgewater’s injury.

    ____________________________

    Spielman built one of the NFL’s premier defenses primarily through the draft (Everson Griffen, Danielle Hunter, Harrison Smith, Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Xavier Rhodes, etc.), but also with the addition of key free agents such as Linval Joseph. Through free agency and one draft choice (Elflein), he turned last year’s most significant team weakness—the offensive line—into one of the team’s strengths and, indeed, one of the NFL’s best.

    And then there is the signing of Case Keenum. Of course, he is not yet a future Hall of Famer as the Packer faithful have already anointed Brett Hundley, but…well, let’s just say that Spielman’s backup QB is badly outplaying Ted Thompson’s backup QB and it isn’t even close.

    Most significantly perhaps, Spielman built a balanced team that does not depend on one player. Though our friends from Green Bay have always disputed our contention that the Packers would be a mediocre team without Aaron Rodgers, the results on the field this year clearly show that to be true.

    Last night Spielman’s team shut out Ted Thompson’s team on the latter’s home turf, in the latter’s supposedly advantageous weather conditions. And Spielman’s team has clinched the division title and is one of the best teams in the NFC. Ted Thompson’s team is going home for the offseason in a week or so.

    Has every decision that Spielman has made been a good one? No, but that is true of every GM in the league. However, on balance, he has done a helluva job building the current Vikings team and deserves recognition for that.

  36. “With Hundley playing quarterback a good high school team could have shut the Pack out. Green Bay needs to draft a good back up QB.”

    The Packers put Rodgers on IR, or they would have had a backup QB.

  37. Yeah, impressive. Shutting out a team who played 2nd and 3rd string guys. Some of those guys had to be seeing their first action of the year. He’ll, I hadn’t even heard of a couple of those cats.

    At least be realistic about it. The vikimgs.had all they wanted against those players from Green Bay. Barely squeezed out a win against what amounts to a 3rd week of preseason starting roster. Yay for the Vikings!

    Too bad a couple more guys didn’t get hurt. Oh well, the re is always next week for Keenum’s season ending injury.

  38. Stella says:

    Another sell-out.
    ###

    Well over 3,000 unsold tickets again.

    Yet Stella blindly keeps lying.

    What’s worse is the stadium would have been nearly empty if Viking fans hadn’t been there.

    Stella claims that only 1 in 10 were Viking fans, yet with 6 minutes to play, all you could hear at Lambert Field was “SKOL”…😎😀🤗

  39. “The Vikings had all they wanted”

    What are you talking about, Green Bay didn’t score a point. Pats or Jags are winning the Super Bowl, but the Vikings are going to be a good team for years to come.

  40. Fun game for Viking fans. I’ve enjoyed my fair share of similar face-rubbings. To be a good winner, you need to know how to lose. The season was already over, so the reason to be there was to support the Packers, come rain or come shine. The stadium was full. A sell-out, again, by everyone’s account except for a few random narrow-minded haters here-and-there. People had fun. Hundley is not a natural born winner. He had all the tine in the world. Was he sacked? I don’t even know. He had so many off-target throws. I think he needs to stop smacking that freakin’ gum and get his eyes examined. Plus the high number of dropped passes. The cold weather helped the out-of-towners, not the locals. The number of Vikings fans was somewhere between 10-15%, which was expected under the circumstances. Anybody that says it was more is simply wrong or lying. This was a very very winnable game, despite the interceptions. The Vikings were fortunate that the Packers were so pathetic. All things considered, the no-name Packer defense kept up extremely well. They made it winnable. The Vikings did not outplay the Packers, not by any stretch. Anybody that says they did watched the game through purple colored glasses.

    Good luck to the Vikings. I mean it. Keep your banter mutually respectful if you expect to be treated the same. I’m trying. If not, well, I’m not going anywhere. You’ll hear from me if I feel like it and you deserve it.

  41. Facts are facts, the Vikings (an indoor team) went into their rivals home and beat them. How many passes did GB receivers drop? I thought the cold weather team had the advantage when it came to dropped passes?

    Rarely does any team put up huge numbers in that cold of a game. By the time the 1st quarter was done, it was essentially 0’ degrees. The ball is like a rock, whether throwing, kicking, or catching it. The Vikes made the plays, and GB didn’t, plain and simple. Now let’s go back home and prepare for the Bears.

    Skol🙏Skol🙏Skol🙏Skol🙏

  42. I keep hearing the packers still could have won late into the game – I don’t care if the final score wound up being 3-0, it was clear for basically the entire second half that the packers weren’t going to compete. The packers defense actually looked a lot better (front 7 at least) with some starters out. It being 0 out and the game being played in a few inches of mud certainly affected the Vikings offense, so i’m not freaking out that they looked awfully average last night. The whole game seemed half speed – GB should be fined for that awful, awful playing surface.

    Whatever happens this year, the Vikings seem poised to be a force in the NFC for years to come. The packers look like a dumpster fire, although they had some backups play very well. I think the score would have been more lopsided if the packers left the ridiculously overrated clay mathews in.

    That must have been the loudest 10% of fans in the history of fandom. We could hear the Skol Chant loud and clear through the tv sets, and Harrison Smith said he felt like it was a home game.

    Don’t kid yourself that your team was in this game at any point in time. On the road, 5 degrees, left guard hurt early, dominant defense. The Vikings called a very bland game on offense. Why? Because the second it was 3-0, the game was won. No need to take chances. No need to show more of the playbook. Honestly, against your QB, no need to do anything other than show up and out muscle and out play 11 on 11.

    The Vikings dominated that Packers team. You want to make excuses about injuries, go ahead. I actually think injuries can be used as an excuse, especially when your all world QB is out. But don’t pretend that your team ever had a chance against the Vikings last night. It simply isn’t true.

    Well, the rules of the game don’t allow a team to have negative points, so all the Vikings could do was hold your team to zero.

  45. The field put up more of a fight than the Packers. Not impressed with the morons throwing stuff at Diggs. Vikings should have scored more but the field wouldn’t allow it. They are an indoor team yes but they aren’t built like one. That defense could play in any condition, on any planet. The Skol chant at Lambeau with a big old goose egg on the scoreboard for the home team. Classic!!!

  46. It was funny watching fat Mike stomp up and down the sidelines last night. I imagine that was what was happening in most Packer fan’s home last night too.

    Why did fat Mike throw that challenge flag? Hope? Frustration?

  47. Packer fans out here trying to minimize what happened last night by saying it was their JV squad/3rd and 4th stringers…..but have no problem beating Joe Webb in the playoffs with only a Week of preparation.

    —————————
    It was five degrees, Brainiac, and that pot-holed, spongy field belongs in a third world country. The Vikes controlled the game and did what they needed to do to win so they could get off that eyesore without major injury.

    You’re ridiculous, cheesehead. How could the game be WINNABLE when your team scored ZERO? And truth be known, we don’t wanna hear from you and your sour grapes. Anyway, you should only be concerned about your team violating Rodgers’s IR and he’ll most probably miss the first five games of 2018 season. If he doesn’t, you guys look like major cheaters and any wins will get an *.

  50. That shot of Ted Thompson- my god- someone should put a bib on that man. I think there was drool hanging from is chin. I wonder how many times Ted was caught napping during the game.

    Since when is 16 points not a solid win? There was NEVER a point in the game where I felt the Packers would even come close to threatening.

    With the temp at zero and the field conditions making it like everyone on the field was on rollerskates- this wasn’t going to be a high-scoring game. Conditions were the great equalizer. Something needs to be done about that hell-hole of a field. If this game was played on a decent field- and if the weather wasn’t such a factor- Vikings would have won by 24+. Zim called the right game plan- play what the conditions give you and capitalize on it. The Packers played like the controlled-environment dome team and got stomped at home. Sweet!

  51. Congratulations Vikings fans, this has been your season so far. This season, as a Packer fan I have now walked a mile in your shoes, This is how it feels to not make the playoffs. It’s not a good feeling. Eight straight and nine out of ten and a world championship has spoiled me. As Vikings fans, as you well know, it sucks to be a loser for just one season. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have made the playoffs only 4 times and only 1 win in the same past ten years and to have zero Superbowl wins ever. What an achievement making the playoffs two of the three past years must feel like to you. You have earned the right to troll Packer fans as you are. With the loss of your divisional rival’s most important player and top play maker and along with a weak schedule and other poor division teams you’ve won the division by default. The Packer team the Vikings faced on Saturday was horrendous but I didn’t see a Vikings team able to beat the half dozen or so of the NFC’s elite. I wish the Vikings luck in the upcoming post season but anything other than a lucky first round win looks unlikely. Revel in this season Viking fans, next year a division title won’t be just handed to you like it has been this year.

  52. trozen

    “Eight straight and nine out of ten….”

    Your standards of just making the playoffs is a bit low by my standards.

    But then, I have experienced winning the division championship ten out of eleven years and playing in four Super Bowls in that same time period. No, we didn’t win the SB.

    But that level of consistently being among the very best in the NFL, causes me to be unimpressed with what you are so proud of.

  54. trozen, you’re right, it does suck to be you. But hey,enjoy the next couple weeks between your 2010 vcr tape and scouting the senior bowl for some much needed help. As for the Vikings and their fans, we WILL revel in THIS season because OURS is headed to the PLAYOFFS!

  55. The only difference between these two teams in this one game was the play of the quarterback. Hundley sucks. Plus, he had at least seven drive killing drops and four deep balls overthrown, to wide open receivers. Those INT’s were gimmees, nothing special or difficult. The Packers D played great and forced many punts and kept it close. With two INT’s and an offense supposedly ready for primetime, the final score should’ve been 45-0. It wasn’t. Minnesota is overrated, if this game was any indication.
