Aaron Rodgers threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 44-31 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night.
Rodgers completed 24 of 29 passes and Jordy Nelson had 123 yards receiving for the Packers. Micah Hyde returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown late in the second quarter, and Eddie Lacy rushed for 94 yards and a score for Green Bay (5-2).
Cordarrelle Patterson set an NFL record with a 109-yard return on the opening kickoff and Adrian Peterson rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (1-6). But Christian Ponder struggled again in his return to the starting lineup, and the Packers scored on every possession until they took a knee to end the game.

The Vikings will be dealing with Aaron Rodgers’ efficiency but mostly a backup band of receivers. Plus, a long look at where the Vikings and Packers rank heading into Sunday night’s game.
Aaron Rodgers is playing at an MVP level, even without his top three targets, but Eddie Lacy has provided a pounding running game that can grind out yards. Toss in the return of running back James Starks and the Packers have a very nice mixture of ground and pound. The running game allows the Packers to control the ball and dictate the pace of the game.

When Greg Jennings made the decision to leave the Packers for the Vikings, he had quite a bit to say about his former QB, future Hall of Famer, Aaron Rodgers . The two teams met up for the first time Sunday night, and following the Vikings loss 44-31, Jennings – who has since back peddled- had some words he wanted to give to Rodgers in an awkward post game hug.
- Jennings on his...
Greg Jennings brought superstar Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in close for a post-game talk and hug that he looks like he wants nothing to do with.
Growing up, my Grandmother always told me that if I was going to talk mess, that I had to be willing to stand behind what I said: good or bad. So at the conclusion of the 44-31 Packers victory, only one thing was on my mind…Greg Jennings must face Aaron Rodgers. So they talked…well it was more like Greg talked and Aaron listened. However, it gave me hope that a possible reconciliation...
Obviously, the Greg Jennings vs. Aaron Rodgers soap opera will be one of the main topics of discussion in tonight’s Green Bay Packers versus Minnesota Vikings primetime tilt. Or at least the obsession Greg Jennings seems to have with his former team will be discussed on social media all across America.

Mike McCarthy has known for a while the Green Bay Packers' running game would be in good shape.
''We'll be better, I promise you that,'' the Packers eighth-year head coach said in June after one offseason practice. ''You can write that down. In big letters.''
Seven games into the season, McCarthy's team is delivering on his promise.
Five things we learned from the Green Bay Packers' 44-31 road win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8 of the 2013 regular season:
1. Third downs equaled first downs
The Packers' first drive of the game set the tone. Their four third-down conversions in that series was the beginning of what proved to be one of the biggest reasons for Green Bay's victory. The Vikings...
Following the Green Bay Packers 44-31 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, coach Mike McCarthy said “I plan on being in the playoffs.” The Packers are now 5-2, sit atop the NFC North and are building toward a late-season run. “We’re 5-2 and we’re getting better,” McCarthy said, via the team’s website. “We’ll have a chance to grow from this.” The...
