Penalty Plagued Vikings Lose to Packers
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw for 212 yards and a pair of touchdowns, Datone Jones had two of Green Bay's six sacks and the Packers stopped a three-game losing streak with a convincing 30-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday to pull even in the NFC North race.
James Jones had six catches for 109 yards and a score, Eddie Lacy rushed for a season-high 100 yards on 22 carries and the Packers (7-3) beat the rival Vikings for the 10th time in the last 11 meetings with Rodgers at quarterback. He has thrown for 28 touchdown passes with just three interceptions in those games.
The Vikings (7-3) had their six-game winning streak shoved back in their face by a proud Packers team that clearly wasn't ready to concede a division it has won four straight times.
