Packers: Three takeaways from Week 2 tie with Vikings

Adjust Comment Print

Thielen caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown, and Diggs had nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns.

Carlson's 35-yarder as time expired in overtime went right of the uprights, just like his kick from 49 earlier in overtime. The refs in Sunday's game, unfortunately for the Packers, were even more clueless than normal. Last season, the Saints began the season 0-2 and advanced to the playoffs after becoming the first team in the Super Bowl era to win eight consecutive games following an 0-2 start.

"In my mind, I was playing all week but I needed to feel good yesterday". "I have so many emotions running through as far as just what a awful call it was".

Receiver Davante Adams is also active for the Packers after he was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.

In similar fashion, Vikings linebacker was called for a roughing the passer penalty on Rodgers on the Packers' final drive to end the first half. Asked if he had to make a decision on a new kicker, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said "I don't know". Remember, Adam Thielen ranked 5th in the entire National Football League with 1,276 receiving yards past year and Stefon Diggs had 849 yards. I mean, I don't know.

Rodgers didn't miss the game this time, but he was limited due to a knee injury. I don't know what else to do. To call it at that point in the game is unbelievable.

"There were times when we could have won it and there were times when the Packers felt like they should have won it", Cousins said.

Clay Matthews Jr. pressured Cousins on the first-down play, hitting the quarterback just after he threw and knocking him to the ground in what appeared to be a legal takedown.

Rodgers said he sprained his knee in the second quarter of last week's season opener over the Chicago Bears.

Cousins is the first Vikings quarterback with 400 yards passing and four TD throws in a game since Daunte Culpepper on October 17, 2004, against the Saints. "I thought he made some outstanding throws, made good decisions". The Lions-Packers game, along with the Eagles-Giants game, each ended a tie in the second week that year.
