Vikings tie Packers after missed OT field goals


The "Anthony Barr rule", aimed at further protecting quarterbacks such as Aaron Rodgers, arguably cost Rodgers' Green Bay Packers a win Sunday vs. the reigning division champion Minnesota Vikings.

The thing is, Matthews was right: The Packers had opportunities to win the game.

"In some ways, I'm ticked off that we didn't win the game, and in some ways I'm thinking that maybe this tie will help us down the road", Zimmer said.

If anything, they should've thrown on first down and when an incomplete pass wouldn't be an extra detriment and run on the next two plays to at least force the Vikings to use timeouts.

With the game on the line, Carlson missed, leaving both teams with a dissatisfying tie.

The biggest worry for Green Bay fans coming into this game was the health of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Carlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game.

The first of those games for the 2018 National Football League season happened on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018 and featured the headline of a banged up Aaron Rodgers facing off against the team who put him on the shelf a year ago. To call it at that point of the game is just unbelievable.

Facing double coverage, Adam Thielen still caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Cousins with 31 seconds left on a drive that included a roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews.

"I have so many emotions running through as far as what a awful call it was", Matthews said.

#3 Passing the test: After giving up 7 points on the first possession, and 10 in the first two drives against the Bears, the Packers defense settled in and gave up just 2 field goals the rest of the game last week. Rodgers completed a 9-yard play to Geronimo Allison for 2nd and 1 on the Vikings' 37. "I play on anything". "It doesn't feel great, and then that last play, it's either an L or a tie". "I have so many emotions running through (me) as far as ... just what a awful call it was".

"I think I went out each time and it was a new kick", Carlson said.

The Packers caught Minnesota off guard on an 11-yard draw with Ty Montgomery, before Rodgers escaped the pocket and - on the move - found Jimmy Graham for a 27-yard gain with seven seconds remaining.

The Packers broke a 7-all tie when Rodgers zipped a short out to Adams inside the 5, and Adams broke back inside to beat two defenders to the endzone and his second Lambeau Leap of the season.

"You've got a target area of about the size of a strike zone and then you can't fall on top of him and you can't hit him in the knees and you can't hit him low, you can't hit him in the head", Zimmer said.
