Packers vs. Vikings: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent INovember 19, 2016

The Minnesota Vikings defeated the Green Bay Packers at home to finish out the regular season on Sunday, winning by a score of 37-34 and securing the NFC's No. 6 seed in the process. 

Adrian Peterson came within nine yards of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, but he settled for a game-winning field goal by Blair Walsh as time expired. Peterson finished the game with 199 yards and one touchdown on a career-high 34 carries, and he carried his team into the playoffs.

Don't say Christian Ponder can't win games, though, because he tossed three touchdown passes to go along with zero interceptions against the Packers—his second scoring strike going to Peterson late in the third quarter. 

Aaron Rodgers did all he could to win the game, passing for 365 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions, but he was under intense pressure all game long and was sacked five times—one of which led to a lost fumble and a Vikings touchdown.

Greg Jennings made a triumphant return as Rodgers' No. 1 target, hauling in eight passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns in defeat.

These two teams will face one another in one week's time in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, this time at Lambeau Field.
