(10-24-65) Minnesota Vikings @ San Francisco 49ers - NFL Play By Play Report - color and narrated. - original (25 mins) (Quality 8) - Added March, 2011

(11-21-65) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - The Packers continued to suffer from offensive sluggishness, but their defense destroyed the Vikings in a last-period uprising. A 47-yard touchdown pass in the opening seconds of the final quarter, Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler, gave Green Bay a 17-14 edge. Then Ray Nitschke's recovery of Bill Brown's fumble set up a Packer touchdown, Doug Hart scored another on a 20-yard run with another Brown fumble, Herb Adderley intercepted a pass, and Lionel Aldridge fell on a Viking fumble that led to the game's final score. - NFL Play By Play Report - color and narrated. - original (25 mins) (Quality 9) - Added March, 2011

(11-06-66) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Bill Brown crashed over from the one-yard line for a fourth period touchdown that gave Fran Tarkenton and the resurgent Minnesota Vikings a 20-17 upset victory over the Green Bay Packers. Brown's touchdown, his second of the game, capped a 73-yard march led by Tarkenton, the hottest quarterback in the NFL in the past four weeks. The defeat, the Packers' second in nine games, shaved a full game off their Western Conference lead but left them one-half game ahead of the second place Baltimore Colts. The Packers got tbe ball twice deep in their own territory after Brown's go-ahead touchdown, but the Vikings' defense kept Bart Starr and the Packers from staging a counterdrive. Tarkenton, who completed 16 of 26 passes for 172 yards, found Jim Phillips with a 38-yard strike in tbe key play of the crucial march which began after the Packers' first punt of the game. The pass put the ball on the Packers' 28-yard line. Dave Osborn picked up seven yards and Brown gained four for a first down. But the Green Bay defense rose up to smack down Osborn for a three yard loss. Tarkenton, ever scrambling, passed to Paul Flatley at the 10, Osborn plowed to the four, then to the one, and Brown belted over from there with 1:53 left to play. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original - color - narrated (26 mins) (Quality 9)

(11-27-66) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Herb Adderley partially blocked a punt to set up a Green Bay touchdown and intercepted a Fran Tarkenton pass to crush Minnesota's bid for a winning touchdown in the final two minutes as the Packers defeated the Vikings 28-16. The victory, avenging a 20-17 upset loss to the Vikings three weeks ago, lifted the Packers into a two-game lead in the Western Conference. The Vikings, battling back from a 21-3 halftime deficit, trimmed Green Bay's lead to 21-16 on Tarkenton's 38-yard scoring pass to Dave Osborn with 9 1/2 minutes left. With 3 1/2 minutes remaining, the Vikings tried a dipsy-doodle pass play with Tarkenton first pitching out to Phil King, who lateraled the ball back to Tarkenton. Adderley intercepted Tarkenton's pass. The Packers scored a few plays later to ice the victory, with rookie Jim Grabowski circling left end for 36 yards and the touchdown. The Vikings had pecked away at the Green Bay lead with two field goals by Fred Cox from 30 and 22 yards in the third period. Tarkenton finally got Minnesota's offense clicking halfway through the final quarter. He hit Jim Phillips on a 40-yard pass, then connected with Osborn for the touchdown, climaxing a 96-yard scoring march in five plays. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original, 26 minutes (Quality 9) - Added June, 2009

 

1968

(09-22-68) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Give the Minnesota Vikings two inches and they'll take 74 yards—and the Green Bay Packers. The Packers got a taste of such ingratitude when the improving Vikings used those inches to spring the biggest upset of the young season by upending the world champions 26-13. The Vikings decided they'd like those two inches in the third quarter after Green Bay had scored and cut Minnesota's lead to 16-6. The Packers, their momentum growing, had Minnesota stopped, fourth down and two inches needed for a first down on the Vikings' 26 yard line. But Coach Bud Grant decided to try for it and quarterback Joe Kapp crept two inches for a first down, and then drove Minnesota 74 yards for a back-breaking touchdown. Minnesota, which has beaten the Packers four of their last nine meetings, built a 16-0 lead by halftime on a safety and Bill Brown's two scoring runs, but the issue still was in doubt when Kapp inched his way to the vital first down. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - Milwaukee game - original (25 mins) (Quality 7.5)

(12-10-72) Green Bay @ Minnesota Vikings - The running of MacArthur Lane and John Brockington and a big-play defense powered the Green Bay Packers past the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 and into the playoffs for the first time since the Vince Lombardi glory days. The Packers, down 7-0 at halftime, clinched the NFC's Central Division championship with a 9-4 record and one regular season game to play after staggering the Vikings with a 17-point third quarter in bitter Minnesota cold of two degrees below zero. Lane, who rushed 19 times for 99 yards, set up Green Bay's first score, a 36-yard field goal by Chester Marcol, with a 37-yard run. He also bulled in from the three for a touchdown. Brockington, Lane's bruising running mate, carried 25 times for 114 yards, making him the first NFL player to rush for more than 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons. Packer LB Fred Carr turned in the first big defensive play when he picked up Bill Brown's fumble at the Green Bay 46 and ran down the sidelines to the Viking 28. Scott Hunter, the Packer quarterback, dived over from the one six plays later to put Green Bay ahead 10-7. Then, Green Bay rookie DB Willie Buchnnan intercepted a pass that had bounced off Viking John Gilham's chest and charged 25 yards to the Minnesota 24. Lane plunged in with 1:56 left in the third as the Pack took a 17-7 lead. - Highlights from game - From NFL's Greatest Games "Weekend Tailgate" Series

(12-26-77) 1977 NFC Divisional - Minnesota Vikings @ L.A. Rams - "The Mud Bowl" The Rams had easily defeated an aging Vikings team in the regular season, and after years of frustrating playoff losses in the cold of Green Bay and Minnesota, the Rams finally had a home playoff game against a cold weather team. But as luck would have it, Los Angeles was engulfed in a torrential rainstorm. In the game known as the "Mud Bowl", running back Chuck Foreman led the Vikings to a victory by recording 101 rushing yards in a torrential rainstorm. Minnesota Head Coach Bud Grant's strategy was to have quarterback Bob Lee throw early before the field lost traction. The Vikings scored first on Foreman's 5-yard touchdown run which capped a 70-yard drive. From that point on until the fourth quarter, both teams remained scoreless while the field turned into a quagmire. The Rams had two chances to score, but quarterback Pat Haden threw an interception in the end zone and kicker Rafael Septien missed a field goal. Then early in the final period, Sammy Johnson scored on a 1-yard rushing touchdown. With less than a minute left in the game, Haden threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Harold Jackson to cut the score 14-7. The Rams then recovered the ensuing onside kick, but Haden threw another interception to end the game. - Upgraded March, 2009

(01-01-78) 1977 NFC Championship - Minnesota Vikings @ Dallas Cowboys - The Cowboys defense held the Vikings to 66 rushing yards and 6 points.

Dallas took the early lead after defensive end Harvey Martin's fumble recovery set up wide receiver Golden Richards' 32-yard touchdown reception. In the second quarter, another fumble recovery by Martin led to a 46 yard drive, which featured Danny White's 22-yard run on a fake punt and running back Robert Newhouse's 5-yard rushing touchdown. In the fourth quarter, Cowboys linebacker Thomas Henderson forced Vikings punt returner Manfred Moore to fumble and it was recovered by Dallas tight end Jay Saldi. Five plays later, running back Tony Dorsett rushed for an 11-yard touchdown to put the game away. Cowboys just too much for aging Vikings in 23-6 victory. - Upgraded October, 2008

After the teams traded field goals in the first quarter, quarterback Wade Wilson completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Carl Hilton.

(10-28-90) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Darrell Thompson ran 12 yards for his first career touchdown and Shawn Patterson returned an interception nine yards for another score as the Green Bay Packers handed the Minnesota Vikings their fifth straight loss, 24-10. Green Bay intercepted five passes in beating the Vikings for the sixth time in the last seven meetings. The Vikings, their season in disarray, fell to 1-6. Thompson's touchdown run with 4:23 left in the second quarter gave the Packers a 10-3 halftime lead. Patterson's interception in the third quarter just about erased the chances of a Vikings' comeback. Patterson, a defensive end playing only his second game this season because of nagging hamstring problems, jumped up and deflected Rich Gannon's pass, caught the ball and ran into the end zone. That gave the Packers a 17-3 lead with 44 seconds to go in the third quarter. The Packers then intercepted Gannon on the Vikings' first three possessions of the fourth quarter, two by rookie LeRoy Butler. Green Bay made it 24-3 with one minute left on Don Majkowski's 6-yard run. Minnesota scored with 38 seconds to go when Anthony Carter caught a 49-yard pass from Gannon that was deflected in the end zone. The Vikings recovered an onside kick, but Mark Murphy made the Packers' fifth interception with 24 seconds to go. The touchdown run by Thompson, the team's No. 1 pick from the University of Minnesota, capped a 68-yard drive featuring a 21-yard pass from Majkowski to Perry Kemp and a facemask call on Minnesota. Green Bay scored in the first quarter on Chris Jacke's 35-yard field goal four plays after Herschel Walker fumbled at the Green Bay 15 on the Vikings' first play from scrimmage. Minnesota mounted a drive from its 46 to the Packers' 3 as Carter caught three passes. But Gannon was stopped short on a third-and-1 quarterback draw and the Vikings settled for a 20-yard field goal by Donald Igwebuike with 10:19 left in the first half. That tied the game 3-3. Igwebuike, under investigation in a heroin-smuggling case, missed a 42-yard attempt in the third quarter. - added June 2007

(12-02-90) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - The great unraveling of the Lindy Infante regime began on a Sunday night in the Metrodome. Anthony Carter's spectacular 56-yard catch, off a trick play sparked Minnesota to its fifth straight victory. The loss by Green Bay enabled Chicago to clinch the NFC Central crown. Minnesota scored 17 points in a 2:54 span of the third period in pulling even with the Packers in the division as both teams chase wildcard spots. The Packers had taken a 7-6 lead 3:21 into the third quarter when Tiger Greene blocked Harry Newsome's punt and went 36 yards for a touchdown. The Vikings responded with a 12-play, 49-yard drive leading to Fuad Reveiz's 41-yard field goal. Reveiz joined the Vikings at the start of the winning streak after Donald Igwebuike encountered legal problems that have led to a federal indictment on charges of heroin smuggling. Reveiz is 7-for-8 on field goals after he was cut by San Diego when he went 5-for-7. Minnesota forced a punt and, on the next play, Rich Gannon handed off to Herschel Walker, who pitched back to Gannon on the fleaflicker. Gannon heaved the ball downfield even though Mark Lee had tight coverage on Carter. - added June 2007

(11-17-91) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Rich Gannon and Minnesota simply took control of the football and the game in the second half against Green Bay. The Vikings put together scoring drives of 79, 80 and 98 yards in the second half, holding the ball for 24 minutes to beat the Packers. Trailing 21-14 at the half, Minnesota used eight minutes on a 15-play, 79-yard drive to tie the score in the third quarter. Gannon hit Cris Carter with a 17-yard touchdown pass. Then they moved 80 yards in 10 plays, eating nearly six more minutes, to take a 28-21 lead on Herschel Walker's 5-yard run with 14:11 left in the game. Minnesota put away the game by marching 98 yards in 14 plays, using 6:51 and scoring on Gannon's 5-yard run with 4:36 left. Green Bay, which had the ball for a little more than five minutes in the second half, had 262 yards in the first half and 38 in the second. Mike Tomczak passed for 233 yards in the first half and drove the Packers 78 yards in the final two minutes en route to the 21-14 lead. His 1- yard touchdown toss to Jackie Harris with 13 seconds to play capped the 12-play drive that featured passes of 13 and 16 yards to Sterling Sharpe and a 19-yarder to Perry Kemp. Johnny Holland's recovery of Terry Allen's fumble at the Vikings' 43 set up Green Bay's first score. Sharpe had a 17-yard reception and Vince Workman ran 1 yard for a 7-0 lead. Gannon threw the first of his three touchdown passes, a 29-yarder to Carter, to tie the score. But the Packers struck back three plays later when Tomczak hit Charles Wilson, who broke away for a 75-yard touchdown, giving Green Bay a 14-7 lead. Green Bay appeared headed for another score when Carl Lee intercepted a pass in the end zone early in the second quarter. The Vikings tied the score on Gannon's 3-yard TD pass to Mike Jones with 1:54 to go. Packer Vice President of Football Operations Tom Braatz would be fired three days later, and replaced by Ron Wolf as the general manager. Wolf would be given total control of football operations, something Braatz never had. - added June 2007

(11-24-91) Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings - Lions' All-Pro running back Barry Sanders exploded for a team-record 220 yards and four TDs on the ground to lead Detroit to victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Sanders set personal and team highs for yards rushing and rushing touchdowns in a game. The Lions took advantage of six Viking turnovers to keep their record a perfect 8-0 in games played in domes this season. Detroit opened the scoring on a 17-yard touchdown run by Sanders. Minnesota tied the game when running back Darren Nelson connected with wide receiver Anthony Carter on a 25-yard touchdown pass. The second half was the "Barry Sanders Show" as he piled up 160 yards rushing and touchdown runs of 45, four and nine yards. Kicker Eddie Murray added a 50-yard field goal, his longest since 1989, to cap the Lions' scoring. - Added March, 2009

(12-21-91) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Green Bay Packers coach Lindy Infante gave his Minnesota Vikings' counterpart a most unusual retirement present - the most lopsided home loss of Jerry Burns' career. Vince Workman scored twice Saturday as the Packers finished what might be Infante's last game as head coach with a 27-7 victory. The Packers reportedly are considering making a coaching change after their third losing campaign under Infante, who has a 24-40 mark in four seasons. Burns announced his retirement two weeks ago and the Vikings responded with successive victories over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams. But Minnesota sent Burns out of the NFL the same way it welcomed him into the league; the Vikings lost his debut in 1986. In between, Burns won more games than he lost, finishing with a career record of 52-43. But the Vikings never seemed to win as much as their talent dictated. Minnesota players spent much of the week preceding Saturday's nationally televised game talking about how much they wanted to win for Burns, the only Viking introduced before the game. Instead, they played miserably and almost sustained their first home shutout since 1962. Only Rich Gannon's 9-yard pass to Terry Allen with 1:22 to go averted the shutout. Burns had only two other 20-point losses at home - 34-14 to Detroit this season and 34-14 to Green Bay in 1988. Cris Carter fumbled on Minnesota's opening drive, leading to Chris Jacke's 42-yard field goal, and Minnesota had turnovers that set up touchdown runs by Workman and Keith Woodside. The Vikings also committed nine penalties for 82 yards. - added June 2007

 

1992

(09-06-92) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Terry Allen's footwork on a slippery field brought the Minnesota Vikings a 23-20 victory over the host Green Bay Packers in overtime in the first game for a pair of rookie head coaches. Allen's 45-yard run to the Green Bay 11 set up Fuad Reveiz's 25-yard field goal with 4:40 left, giving Dennis Green the win in his first game as Vikings coach. Until Allen's run - he had a 51-yarder in the fourth quarter to set up another score - the overtime was a series of slips and errors on a field made slick by a fourth-quarter rain. Green Bay's Don Majkowski completed his first pass of overtime for his 13th straight completion, but then was intercepted and threw four incompletions on his next five attempts. The Vikings, who lost a fumble in overtime, also couldn't move until Allen took a draw play handoff and picked his way through the Packers defense. QB Rich Gannon then carried for 2 yards before Reveiz hit his third field goal of the game. - Includes halftime (4 discs) (Quality 9.5)

(12-27-92) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - The Minnesota Vikings made sure they wouldn't have to play the Green Bay Packers again this season. Sean Salisbury ignited the Vikings' dormant pass offense, throwing for a career-high 292 yards and two touchdowns, as Minnesota beat Green Bay 27-7. The loss eliminated the Packers from playoff contention and stopped their six-game winning streak. Terry Allen ran for 100 yards and set the single-season rushing record for the NFC Central champion Vikings. Allen finished with 1,201 yards, 46 more than Chuck Foreman gained in 1976 - Minnesota's last Super Bowl season. Not even Sterling Sharpe, who caught six passes to end the year with 108, eclipsing Art Monk's NFL-record 106-reception season of 1984, could get the Packers (9-7) into the playoffs. Because the Washington Redskins were upset by the Los Angeles Raiders on Saturday, the Packers knew going in that a victory would put them in the playoffs for the first time in a nonstrike season since 1972. Green Bay would have returned to the Metrodome next weekend. Instead, Minnesota on Saturday will be home for the defending Super Bowl champion Redskins (9-7), who have the tiebreaker advantage over the Packers because of a better record in conference games. The Vikings, who clinched the NFC Central title with last week's win at Pittsburgh, lost to Washington here, 15-13, on Oct. 25. Minnesota had relied almost exclusively on Allen's rushing and its outstanding defense to win the division. Between them, Salisbury and Rich Gannon combined for two touchdown passes since the Redskins game. Vikings coach Dennis Green has flip-flopped his quarterbacks the last five weeks, looking for a hot hand. He found one Sunday in Salisbury. Salisbury completed 20 of 33 passes, including a 13-yard first quarter touchdown pass to Steve Jordan and a 34-yard scoring pass to his other tight end, Mike Tice, in the second period. - Includes halftime and ESPN Primetime highlights and interviews after game (Quality 8.5)

(09-26-93) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Jim McMahon completed a 45-yard pass to Eric Guliford with 6 seconds to play, setting up Fuad Reveiz's fifth field goal, and the Minnesota Vikings rallied for a 15-13 victory over the Green Bay Packers. On third-and-10 from the 50, the Packers blew their coverage, and Jim McMahon, who had rolled right to avoid the rush, spotted Guliford all alone at the 11. Guliford went 6 more yards before he was pushed out of bounds by Mike Prior. Reveiz, whose 49-yard attempt hit the crossbar with 2:40 left, then kicked a 22-yarder for the Vikings' fifth victory in their last six games against Green Bay. The five field goals were a career high for Reveiz, who had been bothered by an ankle injury. His other kicks were from 35, 19, 29 and 51 yards. McMahon, signed as a free agent in the off-season, has won his last nine starts against the Packers. The last time he played in a loss to the Packers was 1983, when he was a second-year pro with Chicago. - 2 different versions

(12-19-93) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - The Green Bay Packers' postseason parade was delayed Sunday by nemesis Jim McMahon, whose passing revived the Minnesota Vikings' chances of repeating as NFC Central champions. McMahon threw for three touchdowns - matching his season total entering Sunday's game - in leading the Vikings to a 21-17 victory over the Packers. It was his 10th consecutive winning start against Green Bay. The Packers had won six straight at County Stadium, including five under second-year coach Mike Holmgren. But Holmgren left the game with an 0-4 mark against Vikings coach Dennis Green, another former San Francisco assistant. Scottie Graham rushed 30 times for 139 yards - only 35 fewer than he had gained in his entire NFL career - as Minnesota moved into a third-place tie with Chicago. Green Bay, seeking its first playoff berth in a non-strike season since 1972, had the ball at Minnesota's 2-yard line with 2 1/2 minutes left. But the Vikings' NFC- leading defense pushed the Pack back. Darrell Thompson was tackled for a 5-yard loss by Bobby Abrams on first down, Carlos Jenkins stopped Sterling Sharpe for no gain on a second-down catch, Jack Del Rio batted away Brett Favre's third- down pass, and Vencie Glenn knocked down Favre's pass in the end zone with 1:14 left. - Milwaukee game - Includes commercials and halftime (Quality 8.5)

(09-04-94) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - First Packer games for Sean Jones and Dorsey Levens - Sterling Sharpe got the loot and the Green Bay Packers got their money's worth Sunday from a defense led by safety George Teague. Sharpe caught a 14-yard touchdown one day after threatening to sit out the 1994 season in a contract dispute, and Teague intercepted two of Warren Moon's passes in Green Bay's 16-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. Sharpe, who staged one of the shortest walkouts in NFL history on the eve of the season opener, agreed to adjustments in his contract late Saturday after he skipped practice, missed the team photo and threatened to sit out the whole season. The NFL's receptions leader the past two years, Sharpe reportedly was promised a $7 million bonus before next season. Moon, making his debut for Minnesota, completed 20 of 37 passes for 166 yards with three interceptions and no touchdowns. He was sacked three times. - Includes commercials (Quality 9.0)

(10-20-94) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - TNT Thursday night game - OT - Just when it looked like Green Bay had frustrated Warren Moon once again, Moon put Minnesota back in control of the NFC Central. Hounded by the Packers' relentless pass rush most of the night, Moon led the Vikings to a tying field goal with 17 seconds left in regulation and then to Fuad Reveiz's winning 27-yard kick 4:26 into overtime for a 13-10 victory. Moon's lifted the Vikings into first place in the NFC Central, a half-game ahead of Chicago, which plays Detroit on Sunday. The comeback stunned the Packers, who were within five minutes of climbing back into the divisional race despite losing quarterback Brett Favre in the first quarter with a hip injury. Green Bay, which beat Minnesota 16-10 in the season- opener, harassed Moon for 3 1/2 quarters, sacking him four times and intercepting him twice while backup quarterback Mark Brunell led the Packers to a 10-7 half time lead that almost stood up. But after taking over at his own 34 with 5:32 to play in the fourth quarter, Moon completed 7 of 10 passes for 58 yards to set up Reveiz's tying 29-yard kick. The Packers were outstanding on defense all night, and needed another stand to avoid losing in regulation after Minnesota had a second-and-goal on its 4, but Bryce Paup threw Amp Lee for a 7-yard loss and Moon threw incomplete into the corner of the end zone on third down. It was the fifth time in the last six meetings that the game was decided by six points or fewer. Favre had thrown a touchdown pass in nine straight games (the final three regular-season contests of '93 plus the first six games of '94) until the streak was broken at Minnesota when he left the game after the first quarter with a severely bruised left hip…It was the first time since he became the starting quarterback early in 1992 that he had been forced to leave a game due to injury. - Includes commercials, halftime - (Quality 8.5)

The team responds by rallying for the victory as Kevin Truner catches a 14 yard Drew Bledsoe pass in OT that sets two NFL records. One for attempts with 70 and another for completions with 45.

(10-22-95) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre earned his first-ever NFC 'Offensive Player of the Week' honor with an outstanding performance with Minnesota, tying a then-career high with four touchdown passes in leading the Packers to a 38-21 win. Completed 22 of 43 passes for 295 yards without an interception against the Vikings. TE Mark Chmura caught five passes for a career-high 101 yards and a touchdown. With a bundled up TE Keith Jackson looking on, along with a record crowd of 60,332 at Lambeau Field, Favre led the Packers into a first-place tie with Chicago in the NFC Central. Jackson, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, ended his 91-day "retirement" Friday, agreeing to report under terms of the final year of a four-year, $6 million contract he signed with the Miami Dolphins in 1992. The Packers traded for Jackson in March, figuring he could be the offensive threat to replace Sterling Sharpe, who was released following spinal surgery. But Jackson didn't report until last week. With the Packers off to their best start since 1978, he said he longed to be part of a winner. But he said he wouldn't have shown up had the Packers started poorly. Chmura's 22-yard diving grab set up Favre's 5-yard TD toss to Dorsey Levens to break a 14-14 tie. Reggie White and Sean Jones also have good days. (Quality 9) - upgraded April, 2008

(11-05-95) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - T.J. Rubley game - The Green Bay Packers lost two quarterbacks, the best defensive end in NFL history and, finally, another important road game Sunday. In a game that saw Brett Favre and Reggie White leave with injuries, the Packers and Minnesota Vikings combined for four turnovers in the final five minutes before Fuad Reveiz's 39-yard field goal as time expired gave the host Vikings a wild 27-24 victory. The Vikings had their second-highest offensive output of the season as they snapped a three-game losing streak. Warren Moon had three touchdown passes, completing 21 of 39 passes for 237 yards to reach 40,000 career yards faster than any quarterback in NFL history except Dan Marino. After LB Jeff Brady intercepted No. 3 quarterback T.J. Rubley with 50 seconds left, Moon had completions of 23 and 22 yards to Jake Reed to set up Reveiz's winning kick. The Packers, who had six turnovers, lost their second straight road game and fell to 10-19 on the road in the three years since Mike Holmgren became their coach. The Packers also lost backup Ty Detmer to a sprained thumb, and their 10th straight on artificial turf. Favre started his 54th consecutive game Sunday, the longest active streak in the NFL. But he went out late in the second quarter with an injured left ankle after guard Aaron Taylor fell on him. White, whose 153 1/2 sacks are more than any player in NFL history, went out with a sprained right knee with 7:40 left in the fourth quarter. Rubley tossed his costly interception following an audible and was released shortly after the game. - Includes halftime (Quality 9)

Green Bay posted the best record of any team in the NFC Central since the Chicago Bears were 15-1 in 1985 and 14-2 in '86. Green Bay's winning percentage of .813 is the best for the franchise since the '66 team was 12-2 for .857. For just the third time in 64 years, the Packers finished unbeaten at home (8-0).

1997

(09-21-97) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre was having such a good day that he began thinking about his golf game. Apparently he wasn't the only one who took a 24-point halftime lead for granted. Favre tied a career high with five touchdown passes and broke Bart Starr's team record with No. 153 as the Packers outlasted the Minnesota Vikings, 38-32, on Sunday for their 21st straight victory at Lambeau Field. The Vikings fell behind 31-7 at halftime but nearly stole Green Bay's victory when Brad Johnson burned the Packers' weakened secondary on four straight scoring drives. After getting outscored 24-0 in the second quarter, the Vikings quickly made a game out of it when Johnson capitalized on two turnovers with TD throws to Cris Carter and Jake Reed to cut it to 31-22. He led the Vikings to scores on their next two possessions, too, but Johnson failed when it mattered most. After completing his first 13 passes in the second half, Johnson misfired three straight times from midfield after the 2-minute warning to kill hopes of a monumental comeback. On fourth-and-10 from the Vikings 46, Reggie White blew past RT Korey Stringer and hit Johnson's arm just as he released and the ball fluttered to the grass. Green Bay got the ball back with 1.38 left and ran out the clock. Johnson hit Carter with a 3-yard scoring pass after Bill Schroeder fumbled the second-half kickoff. Then, after Jason Fisk intercepted a Favre pass at the Green Bay 24, Johnson found Reed for a 7-yard TD, and Charles Evans ran m the two-point conversion to make it 31-22. Favre responded with an 81-yard drive, capped by a 2-yard TD pass to Mark Chmura, his first since 1995, making it 38-22. - Includes Fox Post-game show, picture nice but shakes a little bit now and then otherwise would be rated higher (Quality 8.5)

(12-01-97) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - MNF - Favre gets his first career victory in the Humpty Dumpy Dome - Mike Holmgren has no more demons to exorcise and neither does a Green Bay defense that just two weeks ago gave up 41 points and 467 yards to the worst team in the NFL. Holmgren's Packers made it back to the playofts by beating the Vikings 27-11 Monday night as Dorsey Levens ran for two touchdowns, Brett Favre threw for another and Reggie White recorded 2 1/2 of the Packers' six sacks. The win ensured Green Bay of at least a wild-card playoff berth and sent Minnesota to its third straight loss. The Packers can clinch the NFC Central title and a first-round bye with a win next week in Tampa. It was the first win in the six games the Packers have played under Holmgren in the Metrodome. It came eight days after his first victory in eight tries against Dallas. And Green Bay's defense dominated for the second straight week after a 41-38 loss in Indianapolis two weeks ago. The Packers sacked Brad Johnson six times, and held Minnesota to just 144 yards in the first three quarters. As they often do, the Packers started slowly, breaking a 3-3 tie on Favre's 18-yard TD pass to Robert Brooks with 2:10 left in the first half, then scoring again 3:36 into the second half on Levens' 3-yard run. Levens' score was set up by Doug Evans' interception of Johnson on the second play after intermission. Green Bay also got the luck it hadn't had in previous forays to Minneapolis, like Minnesota's Corey Fuller dropping a sure interception in the end zone one play before Favre hit Brooks for the touchdown. Unlike the first game, a 38-32 Packer win in Green Bay, there was little offense early. For almost 28 minutes, the only scores were field goals of 30 yards by Green Bay's Ryan Longwell and 42 by Minnesota's Eddie Murray. But late in the half, Favre, who completed just 4 of his first 14 passes, hit 3 of 4 in moving the Packers 86 yards in 11 plays. He scrambled 12 yards on a third down to keep the drive alive and capped it with his TD pass to Brooks. Levens' first TD, from 3 yards out, made it 17-3 and then the defense took over. After Longwell's 35-yard field goal attempt hit the left upright, the Vikings got two quick first downs. But Seth Joyner hurried Johnson into an incomplete pass on third down at midfleld. Then David Palmer returned a punt 38 yards to the Green Bay 31, but the Vikings went nowhere and Murray missed a 44-yard field goal attempt. Midway through the fourth quarter, Green Bay's defense set up Longwell's 19-yard field goal by recovering a Johnson fumble. Leroy Hoard's 4-yard run with 3:30 left in the game and Randall Cunningham's pass to Cris Carter for a 2-point conversion made it 20-11. - Includes commercials and halftime (Quality 8.5)

The catch also was Moore's 100th of the season, making him one of only two players in NFL history to go over the century mark in receptions in three straight years (Jerry Rice, 1994-96). Also in the contest, Barry Sanders (19 carries for 138 yards) became the first player in league history to record 13 100-yard games in the same season, and he extended his NFL-record streak to 13 consecutive 100-yard games. - Added February, 2008

Vikings QB Randall Cunningham passed for 442 yards and 4 touchdowns in a steady downpour. WR Randy Moss caught 5 Cunningham passes for 190 yards and 2 TDs. Minnesota's 545 total yards was the most against Green Bay since the Washington Redskins gained 552 on October 17, 1983. The lone bright spot for the Packers was Roell Preston's 101-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Packers quarterback Brett Favre threw three interceptions. Adding injury to insult, three starters had to leave the game, including the Packers' best defensive playmaker, safety LeRoy Butler, tackle Ross Verba and linebacker George Koonce. (Quality 8.5)

Minnesota put the game out of reach with a little more than 3 minutes remaining when Randall Cunningham hit Randy Moss with a 49-yard touchdown bomb. Brett Favre passed for 303 yards and 2 touchdowns, both to TE Tyrone Davis. The Packers ran the ball well in the first half, but ended the game with just 53 yards rushing. Included in that number is the three times Favre was sacked for minus-26 yards. Meanwhile, Vikings' star RB Robert Smith was held to 27 yards rushing, but Minnesota was still able to pound away for 94 yards on the ground. Packers star receiver Antonio Freeman was held to just three catches for 46 yards. Darick Holmes caught five passes for 50 yards, and Bill Schroeder led the Packers with seven receptions for 93 yards.

(09-26-99) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Classic last second comeback - Brett Favre says he can't do this every week. Maybe just every other week. Favre led the Green Bay Packers to another comeback win, hitting Corey Bradford with a 23-yard touchdown pass with 12 seconds left, giving the Packers a 23-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Bradford's catch capped a 77-yard, 104- second drive led by Favre, who beat the Oakland Raiders in Week 1 with a similar last-ditch drive. It was Favre's 12th fourth-quarter comeback, and the 15th game-winning drive of his career. Favre was 6-of-7 on the final drive, hitting Bradford twice and Dorsey Levens three times as the Packers scored their only offensive touchdown of the game against Minnesota's fired-up defense. Randy Moss caught a 10-yard touchdown pass - just his second reception of the game from Randall Cunningham with 1:56 to play, giving Minnesota a 20-16 lead. Both teams struggled to mount sustained offensive drives until the game's fabulous finish. Minnesota took one last shot at the end zone, but rookie defensive back Antuan Edwards made his second interception of the game as time ran out. Favre, who wept after the Oakland win, collapsed onto a sideline bench shortly after throwing the final pass and was helped off the field by medical staff.

(12-20-99) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Cris Carter kept his starting streak alive, but his services weren't needed. Randy Moss was all over the field Monday night. Moss caught five passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns as the Minnesota Vikings outlasted the Green Bay Packers 24-20 at the Metrodome. Moss also atoned for his fumbled punt that led to a Green Bay touchdown by hauling in a 36-yard pass from Jeff George that set up Leroy Hoard's 1-yard run for the winning score with nine minutes left. The Vikings snapped a two-game skid and moved within a game of NFC Central leader Tampa Bay. The Packers fell to 7-7, tied with the New York Giants, Dallas and Carolina in the wildcard logjam. The Packers had one last chance, driving to the Minnesota 27, before Brett Favre was intercepted by Robert Griffith in the end zone on the final play. George's two touchdown tosses to Moss and the longest scramble of his 10-year career staked the Vikings to a 17-13 lead after three quarters. But rookie Basil Mitchell, who forced two fumbles that led to 10 points, jarred the ball loose from Moss on a punt return and Tod McBride recovered for Green Bay at the Vikings' 37. The Vikings appeared to stop the Packers at the 9, and Ryan Longwell came in for his third chip-shot field goal. But holder Matt Hasselbeck, Favre's backup, threw a touchdown strike to tight end Jeff Thomason for a 20-17 lead with 12:31 remaining. Carter extended his starting streak to 111 games despite a severely sprained right ankle that had him in a cast all week But he was no factor, playing just a few snaps in the first quarter and not getting any balls thrown his way. The Packers led 13-10 at haiftime on the strength of Dorsey Levens' 1-yard run and two Longwell field goals. Levens returned to the lineup after missing two games with a cracked rib and gained 99 yards on 26 carries. But the Vikings converted three third downs on their way to the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, including a 17-yard scramble by George to the Green Bay 42, George's longest run ever. - (Quality 9.0)

(11-06-00) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - "Immaculate Deflection game" - Antonio Freeman made one of the most astonishing touchdown catches in National Football League history, lifting the desperate Packers to a 26-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in a Monday Night classic that will long live in Green Bay football lore. With the Packers facing third and 4 at the Vikings' 43 on the first possession of overtime, Brett Favre took a shot deep to Freeman, who was locked in man-to-man coverage with cornerback Cris Dishman along the western sideline. As Freeman slipped and fell, Dishman had the ball in his hands but dropped the interception. The ball bounced off Freeman's left arm until he controlled it against his chest as he lay on the ground. Freeman jumped to his feet at the 15, eluded Robert Griffith and scored a touchdown that set off a wild victory celebration in the south end zone. The outlook appeared bleak as Vikings kicker Gary Anderson lined up to kick a game-winning 32-yard field goal with 7 seconds left in regulation and the score knotted at 20. But after Green Bay called a timeout, which allowed the steady rain to further drench the turf, holder Mitch Berger was unable to control the snap, and Anderson was denied the opportunity to close the game. LeRoy Butler started his 100th consecutive games, dating to Oct. 9, 1994. His streak is the second longest on the team behind Brett Favre's 134. - Includes MNF post-game interview with Antonio Freeman (Quality 9)

(12-17-00) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Packers go into Minnesota and steal a win - The Green Bay Packers remarkably kept their playoff hopes alive, when they stunned the NFC Central-leading Minnesota Vikings, 33-28. In arguably their most complete game of the year, the Packers dominated the line of scrimmage and limited the opportunities of the Vikings' big-play offense. Helped by a career day by running back Ahman Green, quarterback Brett Favre was dazzling, completing 26-of-38 passes for 290 yards and 3 touchdowns. Green, with seven gains of 10 or more yards, ran for 161 yards. With consecutive runs of 15 and 12 yards, Green went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season. It was the first time in his young, 3-year career he has eclipsed the mark, and he became just the seventh Packer in the team's 81-year history to do so. K Ryan Longwell was equally impressive -- a perfect four-for-four on field goal attempts. The Packers, as an 8-point underdog, became the first foe all season to hold Robert Smith below 61 yards (10 carries for 26 yards), amassed 159 rushing yards of its own and established nearly a 6-minute edge in time of possession. - Includes commercials (Quality 8.5)

(10-21-01) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Instead of being three games up on the defending NFC Central Division champion Vikings, the Packers limped into the bye week at 4-2, trailing the upstart Chicago Bears and now leading Minnesota by just a game. Playing without injured WR Bill Schroeder, the Packers struggled offensively controlling the ball for just over 22 minutes and gaining 234 total yards. Meanwhile, the Vikings held onto the ball for more than 37 minutes totaling 377 yards. Holding Minnesota to a three-and-out on the first drive, Green Bay drove into field goal range. Ryan Longwell missed a 51-yard kick wide right, the first of two missed attempts in the game. He also missed a 42-yard attempt in the second quarter. Safety Chris akins forced a fumble on punt coverage following the Packers' second drive giving Green Bay the ball on the Minnesota 16-yard line. Faced with a fourth-and-two inside the 10-yard line, Ahman Green was stopped short of the first down marker. In the first half, the league's third-ranked defense forced a Daunte Culpepper fumble and held Minnesota to two field goals and a long touchdown pass. The Vikings' Chris Carter scored on a 43-yard pass from Culpepper to open the scoring for the game. Two plays later Minnesota scored its second touchdown when Kailee Wong intercepted a Brett Favre pass and returned it 27 yards for the score. It's the second Favre pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown this season. Early in the second quarter Green Bay's LeRoy Butler left the game with a bruised sternum and was replaced by akins. The x-ray results at the stadium were negative and he will be further evaluated back in Green Bay. Butler, who started his 113th consecutive game, did not return to the game. The Vikings held a 20-0 lead going into halftime and the Packers never recovered. - added June, 2007

(12-30-01) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - The Packers used two fourth-quarter touchdowns to turn a 13-10 deficit into a 24-13 victory over the Vikings. CB Mike McKenzie was the showcase player. He set the early tone with big hits on Vikings' QB Spergeon Wynn and FB Harold Morrow. McKenzie effectively limited all-pro receiver Randy Moss to just two catches for 10 yards. He also returned his fourth-quarter interception for 38 yards and a touchdown. Brett Favre did more than go 5-for-5 passing on the touchdown drive that put the Packers up to stay in the fourth quarter. He also was the lead blocker on wide receiver Donald Driver's reverse for a 31-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Minnesota used 12 straight running plays to drive 50 yards on its opening possession only to have Gary anderson miss a 39-yard field goal attempt wide right. Anderson connected on kicks from 44 and 42 yards out later in the game. As a team the Packers broke the club record for sacks in a season when Jim Flanigan wrapped up Wynn in the second quarter. This defensive unit has recorded 51 sacks so far this season breaking the record of 50 set by the 1998 team. Combined with San Francisco's upset loss in Dallas, the Packers (11-4) moved past the 49ers to become the fourth of six seeded teams in the NFC. - includes commercials, halftime, and "Locker Room Live" post game show (Quality 8.5)

Moss caught nine passes for 150 yards and a touchdown as the Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 30-25 in front of a record crowd of 70,505 at the remodeled stadium Sunday at Green Bay. The Vikings, who snapped a 12-game losing streak outdoors, built a 27-3 lead and then held off Green Bay's furious rally. Javon Walker's 24- yard touchdown catch pulled Green Bay to 30-25 with 1 minute, 55 seconds remaining. But Ryan Longwell's onside kick went out of bounds, and the Vikings took over thanks to a new NFL rule that doesn't allow a rekick with less than five minutes left. And Minnesota ran out the clock. Daunte Culpepper threw three touchdown passes and the Vikings' defense forced four turnovers from the out-of-sync Packers in the first half. (quality 9) - upgraded February, 2008

(11-02-03) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Packers run over Vikings at Humpty Dumpty Dome - The Metrodome has always brought trouble for Brett Favre. Maybe he just needed to play hurt. Ignoring the broken thumb on his throwing hand, Favre passed for 194 yards and three touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers saved their season Sunday night with a 30-27 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. After two straight losses at home, the Vikings (6-2) saw their NFC North lead over the Packers (4-4) shrink to two games. Two of Javon Walker's three receptions went for Green Bay touchdowns, and Ahman Green rushed 21 times for 137 yards — plus five catches for 52 yards and a score. Favre, who improved to 3-9 in his career in the Vikings' noisy, climate-controlled home, completed 18 of 28 passes and threw one interception. He extended his consecutive starts streak to 198, an NFL record by a quarterback. Daunte Culpepper threw two touchdown passes without an interception for Minnesota and plunged in from the 1-yard line with 33 seconds left to cut Green Bay's lead to three. The onside kick was recovered by the Packers' Darren Sharper. (Quality 9) - upgraded February, 2008

(12-28-03) Minnesota Vikings @ Arizona Cardinals - unbelievable ending - Arizona knocked the Minnesota Vikings out of the playoffs Sunday with a fourth-down miracle that put Green Bay in. Josh McCown threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Nathan Poole on fourth-and-25 as time expired, rallying the Cardinals to an 18-17 victory. That left the Vikings at 9- 7 and gave the division title to the Packers, who beat Denver 31-3. Had the Vikings won, Green Bay (10-6) would have been eliminated on a series of BCS-type tiebreakers. Poole caught the ball near the sideline in the end zone, where officials ruled he was forced out by Minnesota's Denard Walker and called it a touchdown. A video review upheld the call. Minnesota led 17-6 with two minutes left. But Arizona (4-12) cut the lead to 17-12 on McCown's fourthdown 2-yard pass to Steve Bush with 1:54 to play.

(11-14-04) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Longwell game winner at the end - Ryan Longwell's 33-yard field goal as time expired gave the Packers a victory over their archrivals and a tie atop the NFC North, both at 5-4. The Vikings, losers of three straight, rallied to tie it with two touchdowns in the final 2:53. After Daunte Culpepper's fourth touchdown toss, Robert Ferguson returned the kickoff to midfield, where Antoine Winfield forced a fumble. Officials ruled Packers tight end Ben Steele recovered, even though Minnesota's Larry Ned emerged from the scrum with the ball. Brett Favre, who also threw four touchdown passes, calmly guided Green Bay to the Vikings 15, where Longwell split the uprights. It was Favre's 18th game with four or more touchdowns, second only to Dan Marino's 21. Just a month after being all but counted out, the Packers have won four straight in their quest to become just the ninth team in NFL history to overcome a 1-4 start to reach the playoffs. Minnesota All-Pro receiver Randy Moss sat out his second straight game because of a strained hamstring.

(12-24-04) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Longwell game winner at the end - Brett Favre bounced back from one of his familiar costly mistakes and rallied the Green Bay Packers to another big victory — and another division title. Favre drove his team 76 yards to set up Ryan Longwell's 29-yard field goal as time ran out, lifting the Packers to a 34-31 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Friday that clinched a third straight NFC North crown for Green Bay. The Packers trailed 31-24 with 8:18 left after Favre's third-down throw from his end zone was intercepted by Chris Claiborne and returned 12 yards for a touchdown. The Vikings, however, couldn't get what they needed from a pass defense that has struggled all season long. Donald Driver — who had 11 receptions for 162 yards — made a nifty, falling-down catch of Favre's pass on fourth-and-goal at the 3 to tie it at 31 with 3:34 remaining after an 80-yard drive. Minnesota, which can clinch a wild-card playoff spot with a loss by either Carolina or St. Louis this weekend, appeared on its way to retaking the lead. But a holding penalty on Matt Birk — the Vikings were flagged nine times for 78 yards — wiped out a 16-yard run by Michael Bennett that would have given them the ball at the Green Bay 40 just before the 2-minute warning. After a punt, Favre got the ball at his 13 with 1:35 left. Twelve plays later, Longwell's kick sailed through the uprights — sending the Packers into a celebration on their biggest rival's home field. Favre finished 30-for-43 for 365 yards, three touchdowns and the interception. Ahman Green, who left briefly with a head injury, carried 19 times for 64 yards and a score.

(01-09-05) 2004 NFC Wildcard - Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers - After defeating them twice in dramatic fashion during the regular season, the Packers played host to the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC Wild Card Playoff Game, the first-ever meeting between the two clubs in the postseason. Green Bay was unable to pull off the trifecta against the Vikings, falling to their rivals in a less than stellar performance. While the first two meetings on the season produced a pair of classic quarterback duels, Daunte Culpepper was able to put on a repeat performance but Brett Favre wasn't up to the task on this January evening. The Minnesota passer threw for 284 yards and four touchdowns, while Favre struggled throughout the game and was intercepted four times with just one TD pass. The Vikings sprinted out to an early 17-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the game. Aided by some poor tackling by the home team, Culpepper threw a pair of first quarter TDs before Ryan Longwell got the Packers on the board with a 43-yard field goal late in the opening period. A four-yard touchdown pass from Favre to Bubba Franks cut the deficit to seven points, but after Favre's second interception of the day, the Vikings quickly struck to return the margin to 14. Najeh Davenport's one-yard TD run in the fourth quarter made it a one-score game again at 24-17, only to see Culpepper put the game away with a 34-yard scoring pass to Randy Moss, the receiver's second of the evening. Injuries depleted the Packers' receiving corps in this one with Javon Walker being forced from the game in the first half with a shin injury. His knock - coupled with the absence of Robert Ferguson - left Donald Driver as the lone member of Green Bay's primary trio of wideouts. Driver led the team with seven catches for 78 yards, but the Pack's effort fell short and brought the 2004 season to a close.

2005

(10-23-05) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Paul Edinger kicked a career-long 56-yard field goal as time ran out, lifting Minnesota to a victory over stunned Green Bay. After losing their last two games by a combined 58-13 score and allegations of sexual misconduct by several players on a boat party emerging, the Vikings trailed 17-0 in the third quarter and appeared headed for another ugly defeat. But Daunte Culpepper, who went 23-for-31 for 280 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, came to life - and Edinger came through with his third field goal of the game. Green Bay's Ryan Longwell tied it at 20 with 24 seconds remaining on a 39-yard kick after missing two earlier field goals. - Includes Inside the Packer pre-game show, halftime, FOX post-game, and Side line live post-game show (Quality 9)

(11-21-05) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - For the second time this season, Paul Edinger kicked a winning field goal against Green Bay, a 27-yarder as time expired that gave the Vikings a 20-17 win Monday night and keep their playoff hopes alive. After struggling mightily on offense since quarterback Daunte Culpepper was lost for the season, the Vikings put together a solid showing behind Brad Johnson with 196 yards passing and running back Mewelde Moore, who had 122 yards on 22 carries. The 37-year-old Johnson set up Edinger’s kick with a nine-play, 58-yard drive in the final 3:03 after Green Bay tied it at 17. Minnesota coach Mike Tice shuffled his offensive line this week hoping to inject some life into the offense that struggled to just 137 yards last week against the Giants. Brett Favre finished the game 20-for-33 for 227 yards and two touchdowns. The win keeps the Vikings afloat in its hunt for the postseason, two games behind NFC North leader Chicago (7-3). Meanwhile, the loss puts the Packers (2-8) on the verge of ending an impressive streak — they haven’t had a losing season since Favre took over as the starter in 1992, a run of 13 years that’s best in the league. They have to win out to avoid snapping that run, an unlikely task with Chicago (twice) and Seattle (8-2) left on the schedule. - Includes Packers Primetime pre-game and halftime (Quality 9.5)

(09-24-06) Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings - Grossman the comeback

(11-12-06) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - If Green Bay was going to beat Minnesota, Brett Favre was going to have to throw the ball to his own team, not the other guys. Favre followed through on the plan, making sure to savor a hard-to-come-by win at the Metrodome and cautiously ponder the progress made by his rebuilding Packers. Favre threw two touchdown passes without a turnover and Donald Driver had a career-high 191 yards receiving. "I thought he made great decisions," Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said, praising Favre's performance with Minnesota's league-best rushing defense holding down Ahman Green (22 carries, 55 yards). The Packers, who have won three of their last four games, were boosted by a strong pass rush and even better pass protection. Favre completed 24 of 42 passes for 347 yards and no interceptions. Brad Johnson went 18 for 30 for 257 yards, one touchdown and two turnovers for Minnesota, which lost its third straight game after again struggling in several areas. Vikings coach Brad Childress, who was upset with some of Johnson's on-field choices in recent weeks, directed his criticism at the rest of the struggling offense. - added September, 2007

(12-21-06) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - It might have been Brett Favre's final fling at Lambeau Field, and it wasn't pretty. But after nearly throwing the game away, Favre helped the Packers pull out yet another come-from-behind victory. Favre watched an interception get returned for a touchdown in the third quarter, then rallied the Packers for a late field goal and a victory against the Vikings. Packers kicker Dave Rayner, who had missed two field goals earlier in the game, hit a 44-yarder with 1:34 remaining. It was the 36th game-winning comeback for Favre, who has not yet announced whether he will play next season and did not speak with reporters following the game. He held the ball aloft after the final gun, and hugged a couple of former teammates now with the Vikings, safety Darren Sharper and kicker Ryan Longwell. He also saluted his family in a Lambeau skybox, along with the fans surrounding the tunnel to the locker room. Favre finished the game 26-for-50 for 285 yards with the two interceptions. He didn't throw a touchdown for the second successive game, meaning he still needs eight more TD passes to break Dan Marino's career record of 420. Favre won ugly for the second successive week -- he was intercepted three times in a victory against Detroit on Dec. 17 -- but he certainly outperformed Vikings rookie Tarvaris Jackson, who was making the first start of his NFL career. Jackson, a second-round draft pick out of Alabama State, was 10-for-20 for 50 yards and one interception. - added September, 2007

 

2007

(09-30-07) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Brett Favre threw his 421st career TD pass to Greg Jennings on a 16-yard score, breaking a tie with Dan Marino to take hold of the NFL record. Favred would be named ‘NFC Offensive Player of the week and ‘FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week’ for his performance. He went 32-of-45 for 344 yards and two touchdowns, including his NFL record 421st TD pass, and completed passes to 10 different receivers. - added January, 2008

(11-04-07) San Diego Chargers @ Minnesota Vikings - Minnesota wins the game 35-17 behind Rookie RB Adrian Peterson's (30-296-3... 253 yards in the 2nd Half alone!!!) record setting performance as he sets NFL Records for most yards rushing in a game for a Rookie and even better, he sets the record for the most yards rushing ever in a single game! In recording his second 200+ yard rushing game this season he became the first rookie running back ever to do that in NFL History, amazing. Also occurring in this game, but rendered almost an afterthought due to AP's historic performance, was the longest play of any kind in the history of the NFL as San Diego's Antonio Cromartie returned a long field goal attempt that fell just short by the Vikings at the end of the 1st Half a stunning 109 yards for a Charger touchdown! Obviously, this is a record that will never be broken! - Added January, 2008

(11-11-07) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Packers shut out Vikings in dominating fashion. Favre connected on 33 of 46 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns and won ‘FedEx Air Player Of The Week’ for his preformance. Ryan Grant would win ‘FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week’ for his performance against what was the league's #1 rated rushing defense. Grant would gain 119 yards, plus his first career touchdown, on 19 carries. - added January, 2008

 

2008

(09-08-08) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Aaron Rodgers passed his first test as the Packers' new quarterback, throwing for 178 yards and a touchdown and scoring on a game-clinching sneak in a victory over Minnesota on Monday night. Rodgers got help from the Packers' special teams, RB Ryan Grant and S Atari Bigby to beat a bitter division rival in his first regular-season start. Will Blackmon's 76-yard punt return gave Green Bay a 17-6 lead going into the fourth quarter. Grant broke free for a 57-yard run midway through the fourth quarter, giving the Packers first-and-goal at the 2. After a penalty against the Vikings, Rodgers was stuffed on his first attempt at a quarterback sneak but plunged into the end zone on the second try. Tavaris Jackson then led the Vikings on an 11-play drive that ended with a 3-yard touchdown run by Adrian Peterson, cutting the Packers' lead to 24-19 with 2:39 remaining. An onside kick attempt by Ryan Longwell bounced out of bounds, giving the ball back to the Packers at their own 39. But the Packers had to punt, giving the ball back to Minnesota at its own 31 with 1:51 remaining. But with the Vikings driving near midfield with under a minute remaining, Bigby stepped in front of Jackson's pass for an interception to put the game away. - Includes Halftime (Quality 9)

(11-09-08) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - Adrian Peterson rushed for 192 yards, including a 29-yard go-ahead touchdown with 2:22 remaining in the fourth quarter, as the Vikings edged the Packers. Peterson had 30 carries and also caught three passes for 33 yards, while Gus Frerotte completed 15-of-28 passes for 151 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions for the Vikings, who have won two straight games and four of their last five. Minnesota and Chicago are now tied for first place atop the NFC North. Chester Taylor had four catches for 84 yards and a score, and Sidney Rice caught a three-yard TD pass in the win. Aaron Rodgers finished 15-of-26 passing for 142 yards, while Ryan Grant rushed for 75 yards and a score for Green Bay. Nick Collins had a 59-yard interception return for a touchdown and Will Blackmon returned a punt 65 yards for a score in defeat. Mason Crosby added a pair of field goals for the Packers, but missed a 52-yard attempt in the final moments that would have won the game. Donald Driver had five catches for 46 yards and set the Green Bay franchise record with receptions in 104 consecutive games, surpassing Sterling Sharpe. - Includes FOX Pre-game, halftime

2009

(10-05-09) Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings - For 16 years Brett Favre tortured opponents as the star quarterback of Green Bay. Monday night, the tables were turned on the Packers as the three-time league MVP threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns, and Minnesota remained unbeaten. It was a picture-perfect night for Favre, who turns 40 this Saturday. Starting his NFL-record 273rd straight game, Favre, who holds every significant career passing record, set a milestone by becoming the first QB in league history to beat all 32 NFL teams. He connected on 24-of-31 passes. Adrian Peterson rushed 25 times for 55 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (4-0), who have won their first four games to a season for the first time since 2003 when they captured their first six contests, but finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers, who replaced Favre as Green Bay's starting quarterback in 2008, threw for a career-best 384 yards. He went 26-of-37 with a pair of touchdowns and was picked off once. Clay Matthews returned a fumble 42 yards for a touchdown and Jermichael Finley had six catches for 128 yards and a score for the Packers, who faltered thanks to Minnesota's defense. Jared Allen led the attack with a career-high 4 1/2 sacks, one forced fumble and one safety. Minnesota had eight sacks of Rodgers, bringing the total times he's been sacked to 20 this season. - Includes Monday Night Countdown pregame and halftime - 3 DVDs (Quality 9.5) - Added March, 2011

(11-01-09) Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre was greeted by a chorus of boos in his first return to Lambeau Field as a visiting player, but threw four touchdown passes and led the Vikings to a 38-26 victory against the Packers. Favre, who spent a storied 16-year tenure in Green Bay, completed 17-of-28 passes for 244 yards with his four TD passes going to four different receivers. It's the 21st time Favre has thrown four or more touchdowns in a game, tying him with Dan Marino for the most such contests in NFL history. Adrian Peterson rushed for 97 yards and a score on 25 carries for Minnesota, which was coming off its first loss of the season last week. Minnesota is off to its best start since the 2000 season and completed a season sweep of Green Bay for the first time since 2005. The Vikings won a Week 4 Monday night matchup at the Metrodome against Green Bay, 30-23, Favre's first game playing against his old team. Aaron Rodgers was 26-of-41 for 287 yards, threw three touchdowns and rushed five times for 52 yards in the loss. Favre's heir was sacked six times and took a beating from the Vikings' defense, which set the tone early by limiting the Packers to 47 yards of offense in the first half before wearing down later in the game. Greg Jennings recorded eight receptions for 88 yards and touchdown in a sobering loss for Green Bay, which had won its last two games following the initial defeat to Minnesota on October 5. - Includes NFL Total Access (10/28/09), NFL Live (10/28/09), NFL Total Access (10/28/09), Jim Rome (10/28/09), PTI (10/28/09), NFL Live (10/29/09), PTI (10/29/09), NFL Total Access (10/28/09), NFL Total Access (10/30/09), NFL Live (10/30/09), NFC Playbook (10/30/09), NFL Total Access (10/31/09), Gameday morning (11/01/09), Sports Reporters (11/01/09), Gameday (11/01/09), NFL Countdown (11/01/09), FOX Pregame, Halftime, Pack Attack (Ahman Green guest), Mike McCarthy Show (Nick Collins guest), Inside the Huddle w/ Donald Driver (Ryan Grant guest), Inside Lambeau (Tyron Williams guest) - 4 DVDs - (Quality 9) - Added March, 2011

Vikings were killed by turnovers but had the ball at the end of the 4th Qtr for a potential game winning drive. They would drive into field goal range and while trying to run down clock and get closer would get called for to many men in the huddle after a timeout with only 19 seconds to go which would knock them out of field goal range and make Favre throw the ball. Favre who is classic for making you live and die with him would make a classic QB mistake of throwing back across the field when he could have ran easily into field goal range himself. - Includes halftime, commercials, and post game - Added March, 2011
