Can the Minnesota Vikings slow down Aaron Rodgers?

Can the Minnesota Vikings slow down Aaron Rodgers?

Rodgers capped a 75-yard drive in just 1:02, going toward the same end zone as in the playoff game.

Crosby provided the lone score in the third quarter with a 22-yard field goal, cutting Dallas's lead to six. This time, his 18-yard scramble was a key play on the decisive drive.

Adams had been in the concussion protocol but was active 10 days after leaving the field on a stretcher on a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan.

So far this season, Green Bay's offensive line has looked decent at times but has been extremely inconsistent as a whole. On Sunday, this injury-ridden offensive line will have its hands full, as it has to face an elite defensive line which includes defensive end Everson Griffen, who already has six sacks this season including at least one sack in each game. With the win, Green Bay moved to 4-1 on the season and is now in sole possession of first place in the NFC North.

Shortly after Dallas converted a key fourth down, requiring a booth review to overturn the call, deep in Green Bay territory, Dak Prescott's 11-yard read-option touchdown gave the Cowboys a late 31-28 lead with just 1:13 left to play after a drive that took 17 plays and almost nine minutes of game time.




Vikings wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen vs the Green Bay secondary.

On the ground, Aaron Jones posted 125 yards and a touchdown in 19 attempts while Rodgers added 32 yards. He replaced Ty Montgomery, out after breaking some ribs in the team's last game.

Since Head Coach Mike McCarthy took over in 2006, the Packers have a 15-6-1 record (.705) against the Vikings in the regular season. The duo has been targeted 76 times in five games, producing 52 receptions 787 yards and 4 touchdowns. Case Keenum has thrown for 895 yards and four touchdowns in his place. Rodgers made the grab as Lewis turned too late. It was vintage Rodgers, making critical plays in clutch moments. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott rose to the occasion, much like he did when the teams faced off previous year in the Divisional Playoffs; this time, it was Prescott's team that took a commanding 21-6 lead in the second quarter, compared to when the Packers lead 21-3 in the playoffs.

118.2 rushing yards (11th), 4.2 yards per rush (13th), 58 yard long with four touchdowns - Despite the loss of Dalvin Cook, the Vikings rushed for a season high 159 rushing yards at Chicago Monday. Coach Mike McCarthy said he was being evaluated for an undisclosed injury.
