Much will be said and written about what must be done in the coming days after the Vikings' unsatisfying 29-29 tie at Lambeau Field. We fitted some braces and picked one that felt the best. Last season, the Saints began the season 0-2 and advanced to the playoffs after becoming the first team in the Super Bowl era to win eight consecutive games following an 0-2 start.
A tremendous football game pitting a pair of gutsy QB performances ended in a 29-29 tie, a game marred by officiating and kicking woes.
Carlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game.
Exhausted and mentally spent after persevering through a gauntlet in his debut at Lambeau Field, Cousins traded blow for blow with Aaron Rodgers while staging a late-game comeback. "I'm exhausted and I don't know what to feel after a tie", Cousins said. Rodgers silenced those worries by performing well against a strong Vikings defense. And to call it at that point in the game is just unbelievable. From there, he fitted a pass in between two Packers defenders for Adam Thielen and an incredible touchdown to make it 29-27. After that, it was downhill for Treadwell, who dropped three passes, including one that resulted in an interception that nearly cost Minnesota the game in regulation.
Jurgen Klopp Has A Pop At Gary Neville Over Champions League Claim
Former West Ham shot-stopper Shaka Hislop has claimed that Liverpool would be betraying their summer signings if they followed Gary Neville's advice this season.
"It's pretty hard", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, per ESPN. After the Vikings tied the game, Aaron Rodgers set up Mason Crosby for a game-winning 52-yard field goal. "It doesn't feel great, and then that last play, it's either an L or a tie".
The former Florida State Seminoles running back struggled a bit on the ground against Green Bay, as Cook managed just 38 yards on 10 carries with zero touchdowns.
The Vikings had come back from a 20-7 deficit at the start of the fourth. "But I think, you know, it's going to be a attractive day Sunday, great weather ... natural grass, a great environment".
"It just shows how accurate Kirk can be, especially in those critical situations", said Thielen, who had 12 catches for 131 yards while Diggs had nine receptions for 128 yards. However, the 35-yard field goal he missed as time expired in overtime cost the team the game as that would have won it. It was only a tie, but it kept the Packers' season alive.
"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.
