Almost game time. I’ll say Packers 30-24. Vikings have been talking trash all week, hope the Packers were listening.
7:46 PM: Randall Cobb and prime time go hand in hand! 80-yard punt return! Are you kidding me?
7:54 PM: Defense off to good start but Rodgers drops the ball on the first snap and forced to run on the second. Vikings defense came to play too.
8:02 PM: Offense a little sloppy, too much pressure on Rodgers, no running game. No matter, Rodgers to Jennings and 14-0 Packers. Come on defense, keep it up!
8:08 PM: Real defense back on the field. Vikings right back in it.
8:18 PM: That looked like a sure touchdown drive the Vikings and they got nothing. Woodson is the Brett Favre on defense. Either giving up a big play or making one. Thanks to a false start penalty still 14-0. But offense only had the ball twice in the first quarter.
8:28 PM: Packers’ offensive line is getting schooled. This has to be fixed and soon!
8:30 PM: Got three anyway. Feels shaky though. Offensive line is in shambles and on defense blitz not getting home. I know, they still have a goose egg up there, but they still need to get that fixed. We don’t want them hanging around.
8:41 PM: Packers get a pick but a horrible set of downs by the offense. Rodgers is rattled by the Vikings’ pass rush. I think he has lost faith in the line’s ability to keep him clean. I think we need two more TD’s to secure this game, it’s going to be tough. Couple of more turnovers by the defense would be nice.
8:51 PM: Defense holds but offense is pinned. Very dangerous. Almost a safety but Starks saves the day. Now take a shot but don’t make a mistake to let them back in it. I wouldn’t mind if they run it out.
8:59 PM: Terrible mistake by Starks by running out of bounds. Any points the Vikings get are his fault.
9:01 PM: Defense bails him out.
9:26 PM: Nice methodical drive, getting the ball out quick on short passes and the Packers march 70 yards for a 24-0 lead. We need one more unless the defense can finish it like they did against St. Louis last month
9:35 PM: Defense did its job Cobb gave the Vikings a touchdown but muffing a punt. Inexcusable. The Vikings have life they never should have had and all of a sudden the momentum shifts. Pressure on offense now to bail him out.
9:43 PM: Got my two TDs, we should be in good shape. Problem is they came so fast the Vikings have time to answer, but the offense’s adjustments have slowed the Vikings rush to a crawl. The offense should be able to score again.
9:59 PM: Starting the 4th quarter with the lead again. But sacked on 3rd and 12, oops, penalty on the Vikings. Score here and sit Rodgers down.
10:19 PM: What a second half performance by the Packers. 28 points, including a nice drive by Matt Flynn. I’m out of ways to describe this offense. How does that feel Jared Allen?
