49. Aaron Rodgers put the ball on the ground three times, but it felt like 10. Every chance they got, the Vikings defense hit Rodgers’ arm and forced the ball loose. Rodgers finished 20-of-36 for 213 yards. <p>A positive was Jordy Nelson having a touchdown against a tough Minnesota Vikings defense. Both Nelson and Randall Cobb had to work off the Vikings cornerbacks, including the pesky Trae Waynes.</p> <p>Eddie Lacy also got his hands on the ball, rushing for 50 yards on just 12 carries. No other Packers running back had a game worth mentioning, as the remainders had more carries than yards.</p> <p>The defense sacked Sam Bradford four times behind a Vikings offensive line that could not hold its own. Mike Daniels was a killer Sunday night with four tackles and a sack, but his penetration at the point of attack left Bradford scrambling for safety.</p> <p>The six players who had a major role in recording a sack were LeTroy Guilon, Julius Peppers, Linval Joseph, Danielle Hunter, Tom Johnson, and Everson Griffin. They now have eight on the season.</p> <p>Green Bay will now host the Detroit Lions next week for an early afternoon game. They won last week against Jacksonville by just four points in a 27-23 win over the Jaguars. Rodgers will have a massive chip on his shoulder as he searches for his first division win of the new season against Detroit.</p>. 1-1. Previous: . Green Bay Packers. 7. team
