Aaron Rodgers off to torrid start with two brilliant TDs against Vikings

Aaron Rodgers off to torrid start with two brilliant TDs against Vikings

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was declared inactive for Saturday's game against the Minnesota Vikings due to his injured left ankle.

The Packers (8-6) have won four straight games to climb back into the NFC playoff picture.

He's completed 71.4 percent of his passes during Green Bay's five-game winning streak, for 11 touchdowns and no interceptions. Both meetings in the regular season came down to the last play and rested on the foot of Green Bay kicker Ryan Longwell. Fantasy Tip: Former receiver Montgomery's workload has steadily increased over last three games to season-high 16 carries against Chicago.

Junio first recalls seeing the Packers play during a 1969 preseason game against the Steelers.

There's still a very good chance that Green Bay will win the NFC North - all they have to do is win this week against the Minnesota Vikings, and then in Week 17 against the Lions - but that may only have partial significance to their postseason chances, since there's nearly zero hope for them to get a bye week.

WTMJ Packers analyst Larry McCarren explains that the Vikings' offensive line, already subpar for National Football League standards, has also faced injury after injury.

After the Vikings scored a field goal to cut the lead to four, Rodgers hit the field again and delivered an absolute strike to Davante Adams on a back-shoulder throw.




" I recall watching a press conference on TV when it happened", said Junio, who grew up in De Pere outside of Green Bay. The team is now averaging just 18.9 points per game for the season.

That performance was just the fifth 200-yard receiving performance in the history of the Minnesota Vikings, and the third that saw a Vikings receiver have 200 yards in receptions and two touchdowns.

"We put ourselves in a tough spot", Rodgers said.

It's a game you're able to watch ONLY ON FOX6! .

They can win the NFC North... Nelson led the Packers with five catches for 73 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown, in the earlier three-point loss to the Vikings.

Peterson declined to discuss his contract status, but said he has nothing to prove that would force him to try to rush back on to the field if he's not fully healthy.
