Vikings and Packers tie after missed kicks

AP

With a couple of hundred million dollar’s worth of quarterbacks on the field, the Packers and Vikings game came down to kickers.

Of course.

Vikings rookie kicker Daniel Carlson missed a pair of field goals in overtime, with the second coming as time expired, leaving the Packers and Vikings tied 29-29.

The 35-yarder as the 70th minute ticked off the clock was painful, but his third of the day. The fifth-rounder from Auburn also missed a 49-yarder earlier in overtime, and a 48-yarder in regulation.

Of course, if Packers kicker Mason Crosby had hit his, it would have never gotten that far.

Crosby had hit his first five field goals in regulation, and his first chance at his sixth one. But the 52-yarder was waved off after a timeout, and he missed the subsequent attempt.

That overshadowed a game of odd twists and big plays, and a penalty which will be discussed all week.

The Vikings only had a chance at overtime when a Kirk Cousins interception was wiped away by a roughing the passer penalty on Clay Matthews, his second in as many weeks. This one will be debated, because it’s unclear what Matthews might have done differently. But with the added chance, quarterback Kirk Cousins hit Adam Thielen with a late touchdown and Stefon Diggs for the two-point conversion to even the score.

Cousins finished 35-of-48 for 425 yards and four touchdowns and an interception, giving him an edge over the guy who surpassed him as the richest quarterback in the league. Aaron Rodgers, playing on an injured and heavily braced left knee, was 30-of-42 for 281 yards and a touchdown.

  1. After missed kicks and Referee intervention.

    No one watching that game can honestly say the Vikes weren’t helped out. Over. And over. And over. And over.

    The most egregious one was he non call on Smith when he elbowed Davante Adams head on what would have been the clinching touchdown.

  2. Vikings have needed to fire their special teams coach for awhile now, probably since all the Chris Kluwe drama. Now is the time.

    Also, google is seeing an uptick in “NFL Free agent kickers” across Minnesota and Cleveland.

  3. The football gods gave the NFL what it deserved making Mathews hit roughing the passer. There is no way the NFL survives as the most popular sport in America if that’s what roughing the passer will be from now on.

  4. We gave one away. Welp, new kicker next week. Tie hurts GB i would guess more than the Vikings being as it was in GB. Great job Kirk Cousins rallying the Vikings to what should have been a win….

  5. Thank goodness the refs weren’t allowed to hand this one to the Vikings. Call on Matthews this week was bogus. Way to fight Packers!

  6. That Daniel Carlson fellow may need to look into a new line of work because kicking just aint your thing buddy.

  7. Thes two teams deserve this tie.

    Mccarthy proved again why the other team is always in the game with him at the helm.

    Cousins was junk until he started throwing prayers.

    If Minny is the best defense in the league, there are no defenses. You can walk down the field on them.

    The Packers secondary is improving but still meh.

    Close game but neither team is championship caliber at this point…

  8. The Vikings have had some horrible calls go against them over the years when playing the Packers, especially when Rodgers or Favre were behind center. I’ve always been a Viking fan, but the ridiculous call against Matthews for roughing Cousins was ridiculous. The NFL has turned into a joke.

  9. My Packers didn’t tie this game, the Vikings tied themselves. At least Packers fans are used to kissing their sisters. We don’t mind.

  10. Great game and gutsy performances by both QB’s. Very sad that officiating determined the outcome of the game though.

    The next matchup is going to be unbelievable.

  11. Viking fans won’t admit it but the roughing the passer against Clay was bogus plus took away the game ending interception, there is nobody who knows football that will agree with that call , the game has changed.

  12. It’s simple…the refs threw a flag on Kendricks for the same thing…gotta call it consistently or not at all….I’m sure Clay Matthews well know reputation as a dirty player didn’t help him…

  13. I mean Cousins did pretty good but let’s not talk about who had the edge when one is clearly hobbled. Either way should have been a Vikings loss if the refs weren’t terrible, what’s funny is despite stuff like this happening Minnesota trolls always act like the refs favor GB.

  14. Playing a QB on one leg and getting tins of help from the refs… the Queens manage only a tie. I never want to here one Queen fans talk about refs helping an opponent. The refs gift wrapped you this game and you could not get it done.

  15. This game should have never gone to overtime. This is the saddest day in professional football. The roughing call is a travesty. The ref should be fired immediately. Make him sue for his last paycheck. That guy is a terrible human being.

  16. Next week Treadwell and Carlson will be working much better together. Treadwell will be cooking the burgers while Carlson will be at the drive-thru asking customers if they want fries with their order.

    Someone get tokyo a tissue

  18. The refs did everything they could to hand this game to the Vikes… but the kicker just kept messing it up… that roughing the passer call on Matthews was total bs… but I will say the Vikes moved the ball very well at times… Diggs was just a beast that the Packers didn’t have an answer for… Overall, a tie was appropriate… cuz both teams played pretty well…

  19. There will be a Minnesota Vikings Wide Receiver, and a kicker without a job tomorrow.
    It is time to release #11 Treadwell, this is year 3 for the 1st rounder and he just does not belong in this League!
    And the Rookie Kicker is going to be telling grand kids ho he spent a couple games in the NFL

  20. Completely ridiculous, but the message board champs will find way to justify how even made to OT

    I hate message boards cause of stupidness, but was great game by 2 quality teams but that call on Mathews was nonsense and if you truly vikes fan you will recognize that.

  21. If I was Zimmer I’d leave both Carlson and Treadwell at Lambeau. No plane ride home for either.

    Although this was a tie, in a way its a Viking’s advantage: the now “rubber” game is in Minneapolis.

  22. Much respect Green Bay. I think we can all agree the new Rodgers rule is not working. Kendrick’s and Matthews hits were exactly the same. I think our kicker is ruined now, and I hope cooks OK. Some ? Calls went the Vikings way, but GB was allowed to hold all day, then the refs throw the flag on a ? one. Going into overtime I’d have been happy with a tie, but after outplaying them in OT I’m sure packer fans are happy with the tie

  23. Blame this one on Zimmer boys. D was way too conservative. He should have brought heavy pressure from the get go.

    _________

    Except that call never should have been made. There is no rule in the book, new or old, that would define that as roughing the passer. Believe me, I don’t like the new rule any more than anyone else, but the new rule did not cause that call to be made. He didn’t land on top of Cousins, so new rule shouldn’t come into play on that play. Nor was the hit too high, too low, or late. So, I don’t know.

  25. The Vikings desperately needed offensive line help, but they ignored high quality linemen and picked a defensive back in the first round (although he appears to be pretty good) and then got a lineman who is a project in the 2nd round. They pass at a chance for another linemen in the 5th round and pick a kicker. Today, those choices came back to bite them hard.

  26. What a joke that Adams had that TD called back. He had possession all the way to the ground. The roughing call on Matthews was an even bigger joke. Viking fans, you are never allowed to whine about the refs helping the Packers again after this robbery. If the refs had gotten either one of those calls right the Pack wins it in regulation. The stolen TD made the Packers settle for a FG, and the outrageous RTP call cost the Pack an INT.

    Much respect Green Bay. I think we can all agree the new Rodgers rule is not working. Kendrick’s and Matthews hits were exactly the same.
    _________

    They weren’t exactly the same though. Kendricks pulled Rodgers’ feet from underneath him and then drove is shoulder into Rodgers’ chest. CMII hit him at the waist and didn’t land on top of Cousins.

  28. BTW, that’s 2 weeks in a row the refs have bailed the Packers’ opponent out at Matthews’s expense. On the roughing call on what should’ve been the winning 4th down stop last week, he was going full speed and pulled up the best he could.

  29. I thought both roughing the passer calls were bogus. It did cost the pack the game with the Mathews calls. That rule is ridiculous. As a vikes fan, I thought the Adams pass interference call was bogus as well. Fun game to watch though, suck it ended in a tie.

  30. For everyone complaining about roughing the passer on Mathews, first explain the one on Kendrick’s in the first half.

  31. Karma.
    The roughing the passer call happened because the NFL overreacted to poor Aaron Rodgers hurting his collarbone last year.
    Thank Rodgers for that call.

  32. And yet somehow, someway, I’m sure the Viking fans will still complain about how the officiating against them cost them the win……

  33. Calls on both sides were horrible, phantom roughing passer on both sides. Vikngs need to fire special teams coach. Blocked punt for packer TD and three missed FGs. Greenbay was lucky to come out with a tie. The packer troll who said a one leg Rodgers is better than Cousins, try a little ketchup with your crow.

  34. Vikings 8 penalties for 70 yards.
    Packers 7 penalties for 54 yards.
    Both teams with the new rule roughing the passer.
    But Packer fans are crying about penalties?!

    It would have been an epic game…..if either kicker would have won it for their team. Instead, disappointment all around.

  35. Kirk Cousins is proving why he can win games. That late game surge was incredible.
    ===========
    Uh he threw 2 int’s in the 4th quarter with the game n the line, only to get reprieves from McCarthy and the refs.

  36. Dude wouldn’t have had to miss more than one if the refs didn’t keep the Vikings in it with that bogus 15 yarder on Matthews. Vikings fans were whining about the one on Ridgers, which was obviously correct by the rule (not that the call wasnt BS for football). Matthew’s hit was nothing close to the Vikings hit. All Matthews did was tackle him and the contact started before the ball was released. So, no more whining, Vikings fans. Your team got handed a tie instead of earning the loss.

    If you don’t like that rule, blame you whining QB Rodgers. If he hadn’t complained and whined SO MUCH last year and made a big stink, that would not be a penalty now. That is karma against your team.

    ———————–

    1 more week’s proof that you know nothing about NFL football, and Packer fans are the biggest babies on Earth. Nobody with the slightest bit of NFL rule knowledge would think that was completing the catch. The Matthews tackle is exactly what you “cheez fer branes” were all excited about, hoping the Packers would get a free 1st down every time somebody looked mean at Rodgers. It’s been called several times in the 1st 2 weeks already. The Packers just got theirs.

  39. Another kicker costs the Vikings ANOTHER victory
    The 40+ yarders can be somewhat excused, but NOT the 36-yarder!

    Get Kai Forbath back and cut Carlson!
    0-3 on FGs with no weather issues…MN’s Special Teams stunk ALL DAY!

  40. The officials stole that game from the Packers. There is no way they should have called that roughing the passer on Clay Matthews. What in God’s name is a defensive player supposed to do? He went in and lowered his shoulder and wrapped up Cousins a slpit second after he let the ball go. It was a totally legal hit. And Green Bay intercepted the pass and the game should have been theirs. But no — these over-officious officials threw a flag on Matthews and the result was their defense — which was out of gas — couldn’t stop the Vikings.
    That was a horrible call and it’s another example of why the NFL today is a bunch of bull.
    You play your hearts out and you have the game taken away from you by these officials and it’s just ridiculous!
    I am not one who complains about the officiating, usually. I figure it all evens out. But every week we see calls made which are deciding the games. That is just plain unacceptable.
    I am growing very weary of the NFL because of the rules and calls like that. That play will be run over and over again and I defy anyone to tell me what Matthews did was illegal or dirty. It was a clean play and should never have been flagged.
    So — Vikings fans — you had the officials on your side today. Hopefully when they meet again later on this year it won’t be this crew doing the game. And the official who threw that flag should be fired. He is totally incompetent!

    Splitting hairs. We could dissect those two sacks all we want. To me, it looked like goldilocks flipped Cousins’ legs out and did some piledriving. Like I said, splitting hairs. Bottom line is that this new Rodgers rule really is killing the flow of games.

  42. The fanbase of the most pampered team (and the most pampered player) in the league is complaining about the officiating. Equal parts amusing and bemusing (packers fans, that word means “puzzled or bewildered”).

    I would think packers fans would just be happy they escaped with a tie. That’s far better than most of the country was expecting for you this afternoon.

  43. If Rodgers takes two knees instead of throwing for the endzone around the 2 minute mark, the game never gets tied, bad call or no bad call. Saving the two timeouts was huge for minnesota, and I suspect Rodgers wanted to not just win, but rub it in like some 13 year old playing madden.

    It was well deserved last week..

  45. This game should have never had made it to OT but not just due to the refs. What moron was responsible for the Pack attempting multiple pass attempts with the lead under two min? The incompletions stopped the clock and let the Vikings have another shot. Any ten year old playing Madden knows how to run out the clock.

    Uh, 1st int went through his WRs hands, not Cousins’ fault in the least and the 2nd wasn’t, you won’t find it in any NFL record book ever. Thank Aaron Rodgers and you Packer fans for creating that rule, by whining incessantly for an entire season/off season, making the NFL create the “never tackle the QB, because Aaron Rodgers and his fans might cry” rule.

    ===========

    One pick was on treadwell, and the other pick didn’t count because of the Rodgers rule. Not that I agreed with the call, but oh the irony.

  49. On the one hand the call on Matthews was a crap call, so that’s annoying.
    On the other hand, lucky to have Babyfeet Carlson miss 3 kicks. The last, a godsend.
    Good game. Please don’t Purple up the comment boards and ruin it.

  50. For you Vikings fans who are bringing up the hit your lineman put on Rodgers last year which ended his season — I was one who defended your player because he did nothing wrong. It was totally a legitimate hit. I said, “what’s a defensive player supposed to do?”
    So — I am also pointing out the same thing holds true for what Matthews did today — that was also totally legitimate, but Matthews got flagged and it cost the Packers the win.
    I don’t care what you bring up or talk about — you know as well as I do that was not an illegal hit and should not have been flagged. Again — what is a defensive player supposed to do?

  51. Packer fans crying about officiating must be drunk. There were plenty of calls that went the packers way as always when they play at home. The new rule that was put in place that they flagged Clay for was called as it was intended. There is no doubt that if that same hit happened to the princess it would have been called.

  52. That call on Mathews was no different than the one on Kendrix, just the timing was better for the Vikings.

    The play that really changed the game, particularly early on was the none call on Green Bay, the play before the blocked punt. The Green Bay player’s head was far past the ball that he almost lined up on Minnesota’s side and he is the one that got to Cousins. That could have completely change the game.

    Anyway, that overall was a good game, even with the missed calls on both sides, but that is what we have come to expect when these two teams play.

    Good game Green Bay!! We’ll see you at the end of November.

  53. Clay you cannot lift then drive QB buddy, you singlehandedly cost you team the game. My Vike sure need to find a new Kicker and bless Cousins heart, he looks like he is the real deal but please stop throwing the ball to Treadwell, it’s just bad to watch that guy try to catch a football especially when you have Diggs, Adam T. or even the running back, ouch that sucks to end the game in a tie but could have been worse. Not sure Greenbay has what it takes to put MN away, they seemed to be playing not to lose which is not the Rodgers way, game effort by Aron and MN will be better when offense Line gets healthy, missing starting center is an issue and would venture to guess that our corners are playing hurt considering the way they were playing so far off the receivers.

  54. A tie… Wow are the Packers and Vikings fans going to shut up now for a week hopefully? Just kidding. xD
    —–
    Not a chance…. probably going to be worse than ever.

  55. Ok, they tied. Their even. Nothing to talk about this week from their trolling fan bases. Not a word. Move along.

  56. Viking fans won’t admit it but the roughing the passer against Clay was bogus plus took away the game ending interception, there is nobody who knows football that will agree with that call , the game has changed.

    —————————

    Then so was the call against Kendricks. I think both calls were right according to the new rule. But the rule itself is awful.

  57. None of us has to like it, but both roughing calls were made possible by the new Rodgers rule. You can’t be a Packer fan and cry about that when the rule was made to protect your QB.
    Both calls were because defensive player left his feet and drove his shoulder into QB. I don’t like it, but it’s the new rule. The game wasn’t decided by that. It was a tie because both kickers missed.

  58. The NFL owes Clay Matthews a huge apology for the Penalty but considering Goodell worships the Vikings it likely won’t happen.

  59. The Kirk Cousins era entered the division with a bang. Hopefully Carlson and Treadwell can share a cab and an airplane ride in the opposite direction of Minneapolis. Should have beat Rodgers and the referees today but moving on.

  60. Even a garbage roster can play over its head for its Super Bowl but at the end of the day its results will be that of a garbage roster. Special teams can be fixed but you can’t change a garbage roster in one year.

  61. I have no words. That the Packers gave up 22 4th quarter points to THAT team. Embarrassment comes to mind, so, I guess I have a word.

    So, to Viking fans I say on behalf of the Green Bay Packers — You’re welcome.

  62. Yup, the kickers sucked but what I noticed is the Packers gave up a big lead in the 4th quarter to end up with a tie. Their defense isn’t good. Even Rodgers and his zebra crew couldn’t beat the Vikes at home.

  63. The leagues (supposed) no. 1 defense couldn’t stop a one-legged quarterback even with the help of the zebras.

    And you guys think that you’re gonna win the Superbowl, LOL.

    Great game and gutsy performances by both QB’s. Very sad that officiating determined the outcome of the game though.
    ###

    I refuse to accept that officiating determined the outcome of the the game.

    There were so many terrible calls against both teams that there is no way to tell which team “should” have won.

    A substantial part of the officiating problems are a direct result of the new Aaron Rodgers rule.

    That rule sucks (this coming from a former nose tackle).

    A good, clean hard hit on a QB should not be a penalty.

  67. The call on Eric Kendricks was just as bad as the one on Matthews.

    This is all the Packers fault because of their whining about Barr’s hit on Rodgers last year. Karma.

  68. “Clay you cannot lift then drive QB buddy, you singlehandedly cost you team the game.”

    Kendricks picked up the QB and then landed on him. Shouldn’t be a penalty because he didn’t try to drive him into the ground, but that’s the rule and you can at least see why it might be called. Matthews didn’t leave his feet, was off to the side of the QB, and just tackled him. He didn’t do a single element of the rule. Packers were jobbed by the refs, even a few Viking fans admit it.
    Worst part of the game, though, is that McCarthy is our coach.

    The roughing the passer call on Mathews was absolutely putrid. I don’t know how the league can explain around that

    ———————————————————————————
    I don’t disagree, but technically his weight landed on him so that is a penalty in today’s NFL

    As bad as both roughing the passer calls were, there were at least 3 on Cousins that should have been called. On the firsat sack (just prior to the blocked punt) the DB left his feet and made contact with QB’s head, per rule that is an automatic penalty. Twice late in the game GB D-lineman hit him hard at the knees or just above, again not legal.

    If either team wants to be a contender in the NFC they have to get a lot better as the season goes on.

  70. Cousins did exactly what the Vikings gave him the big money to do, Vikings kicker is terrible cost us the game. Packers fans need to be worried about the D,22 points in the 4th quarter? Who was worth the money today…..def Cousins. Mr Rodgers got out played.

  71. Glad to see the Packers hired a D-coordinator who believes in generating a pass rush. I can’t wait for them to finally unveil it. Cousins was almost as mobile as the injured Rodgers, but still, the Packers pass rush should’ve been able to get to the statue once in a while.

  72. Seriously, Vikings fans, think about what you’re saying. The new rule makes it a penalty to land on top of the QB after hitting him. CMIII did not; I repeast did not land on top of Cousins in any way, shape or form. It was a bad call. It was the wrong call based on the definition of the rule. Kendricks, without doubt, and the video shows it, drove himself into Rodgers as he was landing. You guys can seriously think what you want, but there are no similarities between the two plays.

    Special teams can be fixed but you can’t change a garbage roster in one year.

    ++++

    Then why doesn’t that genius Zimmer get on it already? You’d think the “best roster in the NFL” would have strong special teams play, no?

    The organization traded up to draft a kicker who has missed four fg’s in 2 games when the last guy was 47 of 53.

    The organization then cuts a perfectly adequate punter who had zero touchbacks last year.

    It’s like throwing perfectly good deck chairs off the Titanic because you saw something shiny in the water.

  74. not going to complain about the refs. both teams had plenty of opportunities to put this away. the Packers need to score Td’s not field goals. also, kicking should be removed from the game. these guys plays their guts out to have some clean pants kicker botch it up. ties are for soccer. send the kickers there.

  75. In the end that was a great game. As a Vikings fan, the only thing I’m going to call a success is after many years of watching Rodger’s finding many ways to win in the last minutes and seconds of a game Cousins has given me hope the Vikings can do it too and it’s not just futile.

  76. So .. what did we learn today?

    We learned the Vikings are every bit the equal to the Packers as a team …. when Rodgers is Mr. Gimp.

    Waytogo Vikes! You’ve come a long way, baby!

  77. 2 cheap shots at cousins knees. The one on Thielens TD was blatant as there wasn’t as offensive lineman near him. He had an untouched shot at him and went low unnecessarily.

  78. Bad game today.
    Vikings defense held for field goals but still looked off.
    Special teams stunk it up.
    Poor refereeing. Mathews call was junk. Missed Gideon on pass intereference.
    Missing the down by contact call. Missed a block in the back call.
    Just a poor game.

  79. Dear pathetic Vikings fans, 2 years ago when Packers got phantom face mask call vrs Detroit then Rodgers threw TD on last play of game most Packer fans on PFT at least admitted Packers got away with one. Too bad Viking fans can’t admit the same.

    The call against Hendricks led to a FG, so yes it did cost the Vikings the game.

  84. If fit wasn’t for a blocked punt for a td and 3 missed FG, this game is all Vikings. But wow how about Cousins dude is a beast! Way out played #12.

  85. Just yesterday Packer fans (and if you’d like, I’ll go back a cite the posts) were telling us VIkings fans to reserve our complaints today after the game about the refs, since we apparently do it all the time.

    The shoe is on the other foot. The other foot indeed…

  86. Packer Fans whining about officiating. Pot, meet Kettle. Priceless. An entirely new rule was created because A A Ron got hit last year. I don’t agree with it or like it but it was called against both teams today and both teams ultimately benefited/got hurt. Move along. Nothing to see here. A Sunday was wasted

    Several QBs were knocked out for the season last year. ONLY your weird obsession makes it “the Rodgers rule.”

    ________

    Only your myopia keeps you from seeing the obvious.

  88. I love how Packer fans are saying the Vikings got away with one because of bad calls. There so many bad calls in both directions. Also Rodgers only scored one touchdown. You take away our missed field goals and that blocked punt and it wouldn’t have even been close. Packers get away with holding and bad calls all the time at home. There were at least two bogus roughing the passer calls in both directions, the Mathews one was just at the worst possible time. The Packers fans are such whiners. You should ge glad it was a tie. If we had a good kicker you would have lost
    Cousins was solid today.

  89. Bizarre game, to say the least. At one point I would have been very happy to get a tie, but to lose it on an easy field goal after missing two others does not feel good.

    I see a lot of Packer fans complaining about the Matthews roughing the passer call, and I agree it was a terrible call. But don’t forget Kendricks had almost exactly the same hit on Rodgers earlier in the game and he got penalized too. If you’re going to call it one way, you have to call it both ways.

  90. 160+ comments on a bad game played by two mediocre teams. Vikings defense is overrated and the packers defense is just as bad as always. Why don’t these two fan bases just get a room already and get it over with

  91. pkrlvr says:
    Great game and gutsy performances by both QB’s. Very sad that officiating determined the outcome of the game though.

    This sucky tie is almost offset by seeing Packer fans crying about the Rodgers rule. That will help me smile until next Sunday.

    I love how the Purples always try and downplay the Vikings own mistakes.

    “If you take away all our bad plays, then we looked really good”.

    Hard to argue with that.

  93. Was reaching for the remote button to turn this circus off and then here comes a “Claymaker” penalty and the Purple has new life! Thought we had it made when Carlson lines up for the winner because he split the uprights on his 37 yard extra points earlier in the game. Not sure if I’m happy the Vikes did not loose or sad they choked this one away. 3 missed field goals and one blocked punt on the goal line and the Pack could STILL not beat us!

  94. Why someone calling themselves nhpats spends more time under Vikings/Packers threads is weird. You might want to take a look at your own team right about now…

  95. The officiating was crap. They must take their cues from the NHL refs: you make a bad call on one team, then you make a bad call on the other team so it evens out. That’s how it works, right?

    I would think packers fans would just be happy they escaped with a tie. That’s far better than most of the country was expecting for you this afternoon.

    Rodgers scored one touchdown. One! Cousins way out performed him. But I love how gumby fans down play that.

    Fact is every other part of the Vikings besides special teams played great. That is a very correctable area.

  101. Can we mention the fact that Tramon Williams got absolutely OWNED by Diggs over and over again. Just play the rookie CBs, yes they may get outsmarted every so often but at least they will not get burned like Williams did so many times.

  102. If fit wasn’t for a blocked punt for a td and 3 missed FG, this game is all Vikings
    —–
    We had a Graham td called back, an int called back, and a couple crap penalties. If not for that, it’s all Pack. See how that works?

  103. Before the game 99% of Packer fans were saying “Vikings fans will complain about the officiating after the game”

    Before the game many Packer fans said that a one-legged Rodgers was still superior to Cousins. In fact one Packer fan went as far as to say an injured Rodgers is 100x better than a healthy Cousins. Now you’re pulling out the Rodgers is injured excuse. Bottom line, give Rodgers credit for gutting it out and playing decent today but Cousins (with 425 yds & 4 TDs) was outstanding!

    ——-///////————————————————
    Dear pathetic cheese fan
    Stop it. Please. Most packer fans did NOT admit that.

  106. Cousins throws for 4 touchdowns and can’t win the game, special teams a no show for the Vikings. Rodgers throws for 1 touchdown, special teams play well and with Rodgers on a bum leg we get a tie. I think I’d be happier with the Green Bay performance than the Vikings. Chances are Rodgers will be healthy by our next meeting and the secondary will have more game experience.

    Also, which is worse, being New England and losing to Blake Bortles, or what happened to the Vikings, a tie with a one legged Rodgers. Such a toss up!

    I’m not happy with a tie, it’s funny that the green and yellow fans are happy with a tie. If the Vikings did not have such a garbage kicker Vikes would be 2-0. The next meeting between these two teams the packers will be out of the playoffs and Vikings will cruise.

    Nope. It simply isn’t true. And a review clearly showed that. Nobody but Packer fans are even arguing this.

  112. Terrible clock management by GB at the end of reg.
    Running game working with 88. Abandon it.
    3 and whatever at the end of the game pass rushers need to go hands up NBA D appartently.
    At some point the buck will stop with MM.

  113. I just finished watching the game off the DVR. I will be disappointed if this kicker is on the roster next weekend. Also, Vikings should have cut Treadwell and kept Jarius Wright last off-season.

    I am confused about the Packer fans complaining about the officiating. Packers would have never been in a position to win if wasn’t for the officiating. The rule sucks, but as Mike Pereira said, the roughing the passer called against MN earlier in the game was even more questionable than the late one against Matthews. What was most bothersome was the blatent holding by the Green Bay offensive line that was going completely unchecked, especially in the first half. It was obvious the refs were letting them get away with more than usual due to Rodgers lack of mobility. On every one of the plays when Rodgers was sitting back in the pocket for an eternity, you could at least 4 holds, and they weren’t even trying to be coy about it. That was frustrating to watch as a fan, I couldn’t imagine how frustrated the Vikings defensive line must have been.

  114. Those criticizing Rodgers and glorifying Cousins must remember this — Cousins was playing against the Packers defense and Rodgers was playing against the Vikings defense.
    I am a Packers fan since 1960 and there’s no way the Packers defense is as good as the Vikings defense. It isn’t even close.
    If Rodgers had the Vikings defense, he’d have won the Super Bowl last year (assuming he didn’t get injured) and would be the favorite to win it again this year. There is no doubt in my mind about that.
    You can praise Cousins all you want Vikings fans. But if magically you could trade him for Aaron Rodgers, you’d put Cousins on a bus so fast it would make his head spin.

  115. The Kendricks play was a Premeditated Assault & Intent to Injure. Matthews play was a Perfect Football Play that was Penalized so Goodell could help his favorite team the Vikings. Kendricks is a dirty player just like all his Vikings teammates while the Packers always play a clean game. Clay Matthews has never dished out a dirty hit in his entire career.

    Thank you for verifying your absolute lack of NFL football acumen.

  118. I was able to find a replay of the CMIII penalty, but still can’t find the one on Kendricks. Now, the ref said he called the play on CMIII, not for the new rule of landing on top of Cousins, but because he lifted him up and threw him to the ground. Matthews, by no definition of the word, lifted Cousins off the ground. Then, as he was landing, Matthews actually reached out with his right hand to hit the ground to prevent his weight full weight from coming down on Cousins.

    Heck, even Skip Bayless said it wasn’t a penalty. That should be enough to end this thread in and of itself.

  121. It’s amazing how many crybaby packer fans that are complaining. They seem to be oblivious to the same roughing the passer call that was called against the Vikings.

    Nobody is talking about the Packers’ blitzer being offsides on the play before the blocked punt.

    Nobody is talking about the Vikings being called for being offsides when the Packers had a false start on the play.

    Nobody is talking about the Packers not setting for the required one second on the spike that allowed them to stop the clock.

  122. Cousin’s played absolutely great today. No he didn’t win, but he didn’t do anything to cause the tie. He was great and non moment was too big.

    This Tie hurts the Packers more than the vikings. The Packers never win in US Bank Stadium and the fact they didn’t get the W here, puts the Vikings on a slight inside edge.

  124. At least the Vikings found out two very important things early in the season, and one observiation:
    1. Carlson may be the best practice kicker in the league, but he can’t play in the NFL.
    2. There is a reason why Treadwell only has 21 catches coming into his 3rd year. The experiment is over, eat the cap space and move on. Heck, go get Dez Bryant, they are basically the same type of player but I think Dez can catch the ball.
    3. The Packer tackles are taught to move their hands from the outside to the side of the DE’s shoulder pads and hold the player in front of them. Its actually genius because refs won’t call it, but it is holding on almost every play. Most lineman are taught to punch, but good defender can knock down their hands.
    4. You can say the Matthews calls cost the Packers the game and on that play it did, but when a team is allowed to grab your DE’s and hold them in place so your hobbled QB can stand in the pocket all day, I think you forfeit the right to complain.

    Your kidding right? The Vikings as a team way out performed the Packers in every asset of the game. Cousins out matched Rodgers, our receivers played better, our defense let Rodgers score one touchdown. The only part of the team for the Vikings that didn’t perform was the special teams and that is a very correctable part. The Packers do not win at US Bank stadium.

    Cousins is not the reason the Vikings did not win. Whenever the vikings had to score, he led them down the field.

    Also Rodgers may not get healthier if they don’t let him sit. They were saying on the radio he has a bone bruise that could get worst.

  126. As a Packer fan this was frustrating. There were 6 different times I thought we iced the game.

    -Graham TD called back by holding
    -HaHa pick
    -Davante TD dropped
    -Jaire pick called back by egregious blown call by official
    -Dump pass that should have been picked by Wilkerson
    -Crosby made field goal timeout end of regulation

    Overall they could be 2-0 or easily 0-2. Shows how tough it is to win an NFL game. On a side note I thought it looked like had HaHa cut to the middle of the field on his pick he may have scored. Almost like this game was just destined to be a tie. One of the weirdest games Ive ever watched.

    There is no doubt, not understanding your point. If you’re trying to convince us that Rodgers is better than Cousins I agree. But if Rodgers were a Viking today the Vikings still would have not won. When your special teams give up a blocked punt for a TD and your kicker is 0-3 on FG you are not going to win many games.

  129. I love all the Cousins outplayed Rodgers comments. They don’t play against the same defense. Unless you think both defenses are equal, then you can’t compare the QB stats. What Rodgers did to the supposedly best defense in the league was fantastic, especially on that knee. What Cousins did to one of the worst defenses in the league was common place. He can join the club of QBs that the Packers defense have made look like Hall of Famers.

  141. September 16, 2018 the day the NFL died. Mark Cuban modern day Nostradamus. I loved this game so much. Never in a million years could I have imagined it would devolve into…this. RIP American Football.

  142. Cowboys fan here….and I’m scared of the Vikes! Whoever says their D sucked yesterday is an idiot. They held the Pack to 30% on 3rd down conversions, 1 of 5 in the redzone and only surrendered 15 points (the other 14 were special team and BS tipped pass) AT LAMBEAU field. This is one of the best D’s I’ve ever seen assembled. I guarantee they get to the Super Bowl. Go Cowboys!!!

  143. Yet another tie !!!!!! Thats two now in as many weeks.

    They need a rule change to eliminate overtime.

    This is what i’d try. If the game is tied at the end of regulation, there is an automatic officials time-out with 00:01 on the clock, and the road team then gets first shot at an xp to win.

    This move would encourage the home team to get ahead and avoid the risk of a tie, and should make for some exciting finishes. I might also give teams 4 points for a FG over 50 yards making ties less likely in the first place…..,.,,.
