Kirk Cousins outduels Rodgers in Vikings-Packers tie

P:60 Packers Podcast — A wild tie at Lambeau Field

"Close to an 'L.' Doesn't feel great", Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said about the tie. Both teams scored field goals with the game finishing 26-26. It was time to party at Lambeau Field - until it wasn't. A sack on the Packers' only overtime possession forced a punt.

"I don't know how to answer that", said Cousins, who finished 35 of 48 for 425 yards.

The Vikings had come back from a 20-7 deficit at the start of the fourth.

Rodgers officially is listed as active despite the sprained left knee he suffered during the Packers' Week 1 win over the Chicago Bears.

On the game-tying two-point conversion, he found Stefon Diggs on a fade route to the corner of the end zone. "And now it's like, 'Oh, Mike, you're an idiot.' So I don't know".

Matthews talked to reporters following the game and expressed frustration with the call.

This offseason, the National Football League made protection of quarterbacks a point of emphasis, saying that "in some instances, the defender used all or part of his body weight to land on the quarterback immediately after the ball was thrown".

According to referee Tony Corrente, the flag was thrown because Matthews "lifted him and drove him into the ground".

Rodgers was a participant in practice on Saturday after being held out on Wednesday and Thursday to focus on rehab ahead of this weekend's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fury over Donald Trump dismissing Puerto Rico hurricane death toll
Earlier this week, Donald Trump declared his administration's response to Hurricane Maria an " incredible, unsung success ". Hurricane Maria and Irma hit Puerto Rico a year ago and knocked out power in the USA territory for months.

Crosby connected on what would've been his sixth field goal of the day, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer iced the kicker with a timeout just as the ball was snapped, negating the kick.

Crosby nearly had six field goals, but his first, successful attempt from 52 at the end of the regulation was erased because the Vikings called timeout right before the snap.

And still, somehow, the Packers are 1-0-1.

#4 "Rough" go of it: The NFL's new rules emphasis on roughing the passer doubled the amount of such penalties called in Week 1 year-to-year 2017 to 2018. The helmet rule was implemented following a 2017 season in which concussions were up and Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a spinal cord injury in a December game. He took pretty much all of the offensive reps. More coming from Chad Graff later tonight. You'll be able to watch the game only on FOX6 starting at noon. The Packers have scored 23-plus points in 10 of the last 12 home games vs. Minnesota.

Rodgers didn't miss the game this time, but he was limited due to a knee injury.

"I think I went out each time and it was a new kick", Carlson said. Matthews even put his left hand down in order to try to brace himself to avoid driving Cousins into the ground.

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

"You have to be extremely, extremely careful", Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Al Woods said Sunday in the visitor's locker room at FedEx Field after his team's 21-9 triumph over the Redskins.
