Vikings Dump Packers, 17-14
One of those games where it was clear Green Bay didn’t have it. Packers lose for the first time this season, 17-14 to their hated rivals, the Minnesota Vikings. This is the first time Vikes won consecutive games versus Green Bay since their Favre era. Packers beginning their year 1-1 is no new thing. People will overreact to this one because it’s Minnesota, and Packers offense looked like a hot mess on a Saturday night at The Harp. Yet still, it’s a very long season. Super Bowl’s aren’t won in September. People forget that. Green Bay comes home for four straight weeks against four winnable opponents. Let’s hope they can do some damage.
We’ll do most of the talking during Star Ratings tomorrow morning, but the non-field goal decision by Mike McCarthy. My explanation for why he went for it there was due to the lack of trust in his offense they would make it back down the field. In McCarthy’s mind, he thought 14-10 is much better than 10-10 at that point of the game. Now, the play call was hot garbage. Even if James Starks had that drive, that needed to be Green Bay power running which we don’t see enough.
Sun shines tomorrow.
