Kirk Cousins Made A Crazy Throw To Send Packers-Vikings To Overtime

  • Vikings open as massive favorites vs. Bills

For the second straight week, linebacker Clay Matthews took a roughing the passer penalty on a play that otherwise would've ended the game in the Packers' favor.

The Packers quarterback is active for Sunday's home game against the Vikings, entering the day with a left knee injury that forced him to be carted off last week.

And though the Packers remain unbeaten two weeks into the season, Rodgers admits the tie is nearly as bad as losing. After the officials gifted the Vikings a fresh set of downs, Cousins drove the Vikings downfield until he somehow fit an impossible touchdown pass in between two defenders to Adam Thielen and then completed the comeback with a fade to Stefon Diggs on the ensuing two-point conversion. "I've thrown four picks in a game, I've had nights where I've wondered if I should show up at work the next morning with how frustrated I was with myself". And while the emphasis partly a reaction to Rodgers' broken collarbone past year, the Packers own defense was the guiltiest party in Week 1, drawing 3 calls (Nick Perry, Muhammad Wilkerson, Clay Matthews). "This week, that's unbelievable". And the worst part is, we'll send it in and you know what they're going to say? "But I think, you know, it's going to be a lovely day Sunday, great weather ... natural grass, a great environment".

"I don't even know where to start, to be completely honest with you", Matthews told Michael Cohen of The Athletic, clearly beside himself.

"You see how it changed the game", Matthews said.


"I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control here". I don't' know. You let me know. you tell me. It's frustrating because Jaire's interception, that's game [over], right? They would win the NFC North with an 8-7-1 record over the 8-8 Chicago Bears.

Quarterbacks are obviously the most valuable players on any football field and appear to be garnering undue protection from clean football plays as the NFL looks to protect its assets.

"It's pretty hard", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, per ESPN.

Everson Griffen #97 of the Minnesota Vikings fires up his teammates on the sidelines during a game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on September 16, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. "I thought he made some outstanding throws, made good decisions".

The final score came in at 29-29, with the Vikings missing a game-winning 35-yard field goal as time expired in overtime. I thought we did better in the second half.
