However, linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for roughing the passer, and you can be the judge of this one. The Vikings division titles in 2009, 2015, and 2017 all came after they pulled off wins in Wisconsin. The Packers led, 29-21. After the officials gifted the Vikings a fresh set of downs, Cousins drove the Vikings downfield until he somehow fit an impossible touchdown pass in between two defenders to Adam Thielen and then completed the comeback with a fade to Stefon Diggs on the ensuing two-point conversion.

"I have so many emotions running through as far as what a awful call it was", Matthews said.

"I'm pretty sore right now, sore in some other spots too so that's taken away some of the knee pain", Rodgers said. "This week, that's unbelievable". "Obviously, Auburn's got a big game in LSU this weekend, so you know, there's always those big games in college, but it's a little different in the pros where each week there's a good team you're playing against". "And now it's like, 'Oh, Mike, you're an idiot.' So I don't know".

"I don't know what to feel after a tie. I don't know what to say". "Instead, they go down and score, overtime, this and that".


Corrente, speaking to a pool reporter after the game, said that Matthews had driven Cousins to the ground after lifting him up.

One of the changes this season is that the National Football League prohibits landing on a quarterback with all or most of a player's body weight.

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.

"It has nothing to do with the rule of full body weight", Corrente said. "They might call me for hitting him in the knees.' And I said, 'Kirk, man, I was not trying to hit your knees'".


"I was fearing for my life on the one he threw a touchdown", Daniels said.

On Minnesota's first possession, Green Bay's Geronimo Allison blocked a Matt Wile punt that Josh Jackson recovered in the end zone for a touchdown.

Matthews also was called for roughing the passer at a key moment in Week 1 for a hit on the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky, although that didn't end up costing the Packers a victory. I got my head across, put my hands down. "If you keep your foot to the metal right there and we handle business, we don't even go there, but it was bad".
