Thrilling Rodgers-Cousins QB duel ends in Packers-Vikings tie

Thrilling Rodgers-Cousins QB duel ends in Packers-Vikings tie

The 29-29 tie Sunday will feel like a loss, especially after the Packers led 29-21 deep in the fourth quarter and had a shot at a game-winning field goal as time expired. That would have given the Vikings the lead but not ended the game. "I play on anything".

In the National Football League, every play is crucial.

The tie overshadowed memorable performances from both quarterbacks.

Rodgers didn't miss the game this time, but he was limited due to a knee injury.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) looks to throw a pass under pressure from Minnesota Vikings safety George Iloka (23) during the first quarter at Lambeau Field. He also threw an interception to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix after the ball bounced off the hands of Laquon Treadwell with 2:13 left. 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. Green Bay has won four of the last five home September contests against the Vikings.

For Minnesota, Thielen caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown. Then Cousins hit Stefon Diggs on a fade for a two-point conversion to tie the game with just 31 seconds remaining in regulation. "I don't know. It's a hard call to call".

Matthews talked to reporters following the game and expressed frustration with the call.

"I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control here".

The penalty negated an interception by Jaire Alexander with 1:45 left that would have allowed the Packers to run out the clock.

"I'm pretty sore right now, sore in some other spots too so that's taken away some of the knee pain", Rodgers said.

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

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

The Packers (1-0-1), though, could have used more touchdowns from the offense.

One would have thought the Vikings would have been pleased with Corrente's work on Sunday but that was far from the case. "But I think, you know, it's going to be a handsome day Sunday, great weather ... natural grass, a great environment".

The last attempt from 35 was set up with the ball placed between the hash marks, but Carlson still missed.

Still, Rodgers might not have been the gustiest quarterback on the field.

"We're disappointed with the outcome".

Hamilton extends lead with #SingaporeGP victory
My only real chance to win was at the start, unfortunately it was a bit all over the place and I knew my chance had gone. The German arrived in Singapore 30 points behind Hamilton, with only seven races left to overhaul the Mercedes driver.
