Packers Too Good For Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings gave fans an exciting year but the Green Bay Packers proved they were just a better team as they dominated in the 24-10 win Saturday night.
About 90 minutes before kick-off, the Vikings announced they were starting back up Joe Webb at quarterback when starter Christian Ponder’s elbow didn’t respond to rest and treatment. Webb was not good.
Webb completed just 11 of 30 passes for 180 yards and looked lost most of the night until blown coverage allowed Michael Jenkins to get behind the defense for a 50-yard TD score with 3:39 left in the game. Webb threw one interception and nearly threw several more.
Aaron Rodgers was efficient throwing 23 of 33 passes for 274 yards and a touchdown. They also got short running scores from John Kuhn and DuJuan Harris in the easy win.
Green Bay will travel to San Francisco next Saturday at 7pm.
Houston downed Cincinnati in the other Saturday play-off game and will travel to New England next Sunday.
For the Vikings, it’s time to focus on the draft and as always, building for next year.
