Packers Rally Back To Defeat Vikings 23-14
Aaron Rodgers threw for 286 yards and a touchdown and the Green Bay Packers scored 13 unanswered points in the second half to rally for a 23-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.
James Starks accounted for the go-ahead score with a 22-yard run late in the third quarter and Mason Crosby kicked three field goals to help Green Bay (8-4) bounce back from last week's 38-10 loss at the New York Giants, which ended a five-game winning streak for the defending NFC North champions.
Rodgers completed 27-of-35 passes with one interception for the Packers, who have now prevailed in five straight meetings with the Vikings and 10 in a row against divisional foes.
Minnesota (6-6) was dealt its fourth defeat in five games despite a 210-yard, 21-carry effort from Adrian Peterson that included a career-long 82-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
While Peterson was outstanding, Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder struggled, managing just 119 yards with a touchdown while tossing two interceptions and hitting on 12-of-25 attempts.
