injury was a key storyline in both.

It's the second straight week Matthews has been called for roughing at a critical game juncture. They would win the NFC North with an 8-7-1 record over the 8-8 Chicago Bears. Matthews' penalty on a 4th-down stop late last week could have cost the Packers the win. "(That) had nothing to do with the rule of full body weight", Corrente said, referring to the rule that is being emphasized after Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr essentially ended Aaron Rodgers' season past year with a hit that broke the quarterback's collarbone. "It has nothing to do with helmet to helmet".

"When [Matthews] hit the quarterback, he lifted him and drove him into the ground", Corrente said.

Apparently the hit wasn't penalized for leading with the helmet or Matthews using his full weight to drive the quarterback down.

From our vantage point - and seemingly that of countless others watching on television - it didn't appear that Matthews' hit on Cousins was malicious or a case of driving the quarterback into the ground.


"Ties don't feel good", Stefon Diggs said. Cousins' sole interception Sunday came when a pass bounced off Treadwell's hands and into the mitts of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix for a 24-yard return.

Crosby connected on what would've been his sixth field goal of the day, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer iced the kicker with a timeout just as the ball was snapped, negating the kick.

Carlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game.

The Vikings got the ball first and had two chances to put away the Packers.

But kickers miss kicks and officials make mistakes - even huge, game-altering mistakes - and the Packers eventually lucked out when Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime, including one as time expired from 35 yards out, cementing the tie.

The shaky officiating call and the lack of clutch kicking certainly left a lot to be desired, but it shouldn't undercut the QB performances.


Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers played with a brace on his injured left knee and threw for 281 yards and a score.

"He has a pretty unusual injury that would keep most people out a while", a source told ESPN.

But wait until you hear what this referee had to say about the call when asked about it after the game. And the special teams was strong up until Crosby's final miss.

But Cousins never flinched.

Cousins is the first Vikings quarterback with 400 yards passing and four TD throws in a game since Daunte Culpepper on October 17, 2004, against the Saints. Rodgers answered all questions about his health and showed off his superior talent and command of the Packer offense against one of the best defensive units in the league. The victor would have a significant advantage when the division victor is named at the end of the season.
