Kirk Cousins Made A Crazy Throw To Send Packers-Vikings To Overtime

Kirk Cousins Made A Crazy Throw To Send Packers-Vikings To Overtime

Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson missed a 35-yard field goal wide right on the final play of overtime, and Minnesota had to settle for a 29-29 tie with Green Bay at Lambeau Field.

"I thought Cousins played outstanding", Zimmer said. A 2-point conversion pass to Stefon Diggs tied the score 29-29 after the Vikings trailed 20-7 to start the fourth quarter. Rodgers recovered the fumble on second-and-1 at the 37, and he was sacked on third down to push Green Bay back to the 47.

"It feels bad", Carlson said after the game. Cousins brought the Vikings back by throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Diggs early in the fourth quarter, a 75-yard TD pass to Diggs with 7:18 left in regulation and then the last-minute TD to Thielen. Until that point, the Packers had put together the kind of complete performance needed to support Rodgers, who got hurt in Green Bay's opening victory against Chicago. Remember, Adam Thielen ranked 5th in the entire National Football League with 1,276 receiving yards previous year and Stefon Diggs had 849 yards.

"In my mind, I was playing all week but I needed to feel good yesterday".

"I don't know where to start, to be honest with you". "I have so many emotions running through as far as just what a awful call it was". "At the same time, I don't know what else to do". Nick Perry and Clay Matthews were ineffective off the edge, with Matthews committing a questionable but costly roughing the passer penalty which changed the game.

"Last week, OK, shame on me", Matthews said.

Referee Tony Corrente told ESPN that Matthews was penalized for lifting and driving Cousins to the ground.

Israel captured those territories in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed East Jerusalem in a move not recognized internationally. The Israeli army Friday struck two Hamas posts along the Gaza Strip, said the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

It was easy to wonder if it would be too much time left on the clock, even for the limited Rodgers.

But he was able to move around enough to scramble out of trouble on occasion.

And still, somehow, the Packers are 1-0-1.

The Vikings, though, had far more special teams blunders than the Packers.

Carlson missed a 49-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime. "I still think they should trade him".

The Vikings got the ball first and had two chances to put away the Packers. When it was all said and done, the Packers settled for a field goal.

"We're disappointed with the outcome. If you come in there and they grab around the outside, it's supposed to be called holding but it doesn't happen a lot of times". - Packers coach Mike McCarthy. It remains to be seen whether Aaron Rodgers will suit up against the Minnesota Vikings, but all indications are he wouldn't miss it for the world.
