Like any other National Football League game, the keys to victory are winning individual matchups - as some say, the matchups within the matchup.
In a game the Packers will feel like they should have held on to win, they ended up relieved just to get a tie following Daniel Carson's missed 35-yard field goal attempt.
"What are my emotions?"
"Last week, OK, shame on me. Instead, they go down and score, overtime, this and that". Kirk Cousins, in his Vikings road debut, refusing to back down despite facing 11- and 13-point deficits midway through the third and fourth quarters.
The tie overshadowed memorable performances from both quarterbacks. "I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control". If his knee hampers him at all, though, the Vikings will have a tremendous opportunity for a pivotal division win and a 2-0 start to the season. "I play on anything". "I thought he made some outstanding throws, made good decisions". Laquon Treadwell, after catching his first-ever touchdown in the first half, also had two drops, the second of which deflected into the hands of Alexander late in the fourth quarter in what felt at the time like a game-clincher for Green Bay.
As a result of the tie, the Vikings and Packers are now tied atop the NFC North with 1-0-1 records.
White House, Grassley Back Kavanaugh After Accuser Goes Public
A lawyer who's close to the White House told Politico the president is not considering withdrawing Kavanaugh's nomination. At the time, she feared what her parents would say if they knew she had been at a party where there was alcohol.
In overtime, Williams picked up a first down on a nine-yard run to the Vikings' 46. Cousins pulled on his own experiences in relaying words of encouragement to the rookie kicker.
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. "I've thrown four picks in a game, I've had nights where I've wondered if I should show up at work the next morning with how frustrated I was with myself". We've all had to wait our turn and we've all failed and learned from it.
"I don't know where to start, to be honest with you. He's got the right wiring, and he'll be alright".
Rodgers wore a brace on his knee that limited his mobility against the Vikings, but he mostly looked like his usual self, completing 30 of 42 passes for 281 yards.
In 2013, a tie helped the Packers make the playoffs.
The results from Week 1 and Week 2 were nearly polar opposites - a insane comeback in the opener juxtaposed against a meltdown of sorts Sunday - but the Packers not having a loss after two games must still be considered a minor miracle.
