Adjust Comment Print

For Minnesota, Thielen caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown. But rookie PK Daniel Carlson, who also missed his only field-goal attempt in regulation, pushed to the right tries from 49 and 35 yards on Minneota's only two OT possessions.

One of Week 2's best games came in the matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings.

"In my mind, I was playing all week but I needed to feel good yesterday".

"I don't even know where to start, to be completely honest with you", Matthews told Michael Cohen of The Athletic, clearly beside himself.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, meanwhile, allayed fears of a serious injury for Cook, as he reported that the tailback only suffered hamstring cramps. But Cousins was only allowed to finish that drive because Packers' outside linebacker Clay Matthews got flagged for roughing the passer, which wiped out an interception that would've sealed the Packers' win. Remember, Adam Thielen ranked 5th in the entire National Football League with 1,276 receiving yards past year and Stefon Diggs had 849 yards.

Emery On Ozil: "He Can Improve. He Can Do More"
And I want to push every player to be okay to help the team if for one minute, 30 minutes or half time or 90 minutes". Mesut works very well here. "After six years here, I came and I know him as a new Nacho Monreal .

The Packers mostly played well around Rodgers, too, with the O-line doing a nice job in the ground game and giving their injured quarterback enough time to work. To call it at that point of the game is just unbelievable. "I'm exhausted and I don't know what to feel after a tie", Cousins said. "But at the same time, I don't know what else to do". Williams and Montgomery combined to run 21 times for 90 yards and they should have gotten more carries down the stretch.

The first border battle of the season for the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers goes down Sunday. "I have so many emotions running through as far as what a bad call it was", Matthews said.

Referee Tony Corrente said the call was not related to the new helmet-to-helmet rule.

The good news for the Packers and their fans (like me) is that Aaron Jones is returning from a two-game suspension next week.

In 2013, a tie helped the Packers make the playoffs.
