The Packers beat the Vikings. This was expected. What wasn't expected was the score, 33-27, nor how it came down to the wire. The Packers, being the great team that they are, were able to ice the game with James Starks' fantastic runs on the last drive.
The Vikings led 17-13 at the half and played pretty consistently through the second half. Although the deep ball was still missing for the most part, Ponder showed excellent poise and moxie. He was able to, for most of the game, sidestep the rush of the Packers and get the ball down the field very accurately.
Aaron Rodgers impressed as usual. He missed very few balls all day and wasn't helped by multiple drops downfield.
