But rookie PK Daniel Carlson, who also missed his only field-goal attempt in regulation, pushed to the right tries from 49 and 35 yards on Minneota's only two OT possessions.
The result at Lambeau Field overshadowed memorable performances from both quarterbacks. While Green Bay had plenty of opportunities to put the game away for good, including Davante Adams dropping touchdown catches on consecutive plays, one play in particular stood out to everybody. 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 Vikings trailed 20-7 entering the the fourth quarter. They grab our guys so much on the outside and don't get called for it.
Cowboys 20, Giants 13 • In Arlington, Texas, Dak Prescott threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the third play of the game and Dallas sacked Eli Manning six times in a victory over NY. Three misses against the Packers (including two in overtime), however, is unacceptable.
Referee Tony Corrente told ESPN that Matthews was penalized for lifting and driving Cousins to the ground.
Rodgers had been a doubt for the clash all week after suffering a knee injury in the come from behind win over Chicago Bears in NFL Week 1. "I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control". Last year, Cook saw his rookie season in the National Football League cut prematurely by a year-ending knee injury. More coming from Chad Graff later tonight. He led the game-tying drive and positioned Minnesota for the win in overtime, only to see Kai Forbath's replacement, Carlson, squander it twice. They're gonna say - they'll find fault on me because they're gonna agree with the ref. Rodgers missed the majority of practice this past week, wore a bulky brace on his left knee and was limited mobility-wise against one of the NFL's best defenses. I got my head across, put my hands down.
All things considered, the Green Bay Packers have to be feeling pretty fortunate to be exiting the first two weeks of the 2018 season without a mark in the loss column. The Lions-Packers game, along with the Eagles-Giants game, each ended a tie in the second week that year.
