Packers Take Down Vikings | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers Tickets
The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings met at Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon in a crucial early NFC North matchup. The winner would stake out to an early division lead through two weeks, and that winner proved to be the Green Bay Packers. The team raced out to a 21-0 lead, and held on for a 21-16 victory. Here are some rapid reactions to the game.

Packers: This game could not have started any better for the Packers. After going deep to Davante Adams on the first play from scrimmage. From there, an Aaron Jones run set up a 15-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Williams. The Vikings first drive ended with a missed field goal. The Packers got the ball back and marched on a methodical, eleven play touchdown drive. The Vikings failed on their next drive when Kirk Cousins fumbled, and the Packers took that gift and scored. That was pretty much the end of the highlights for the Packers offense. Mike Zimmer made adjustments, and the Vikings defense clamped down, keeping the Packers off the scoreboard for the rest of the game. The second half of the game revealed the much expected growing pains for Matt LaFleur.

Vikings: The loss falls upon Kirk Cousins. Cousins finished the day 14-32 for 230 yards, a touchdown, two interceptions, and a lost fumble. The interception in the fourth quarter was a ball Cousins simply should not have thrown. It was first down, the Vikings were running the ball on the Packers, and he had three shots at a touchdown if he just makes the right decisions. Cousins made bad decisions all game and missed open receivers. In the second half, the Vikings didn’t abandon the run game, but they also put too much on Cousins, asking him to throw thirty-plus passes. Cousins is not a game changer, literally. The Vikings will adjust, and their run game is for real. Also, give credit to the Packers defense yet again. They kept the Vikings out of the end zone just enough times to give the Packers the win. It’s another home game for Green Bay this Sunday, when the Denver Broncos come to town.
