Minnesota Vikings 16-21 Green Bay Packers: Packers hold on in tense NFC North battle

The Green Bay Packers held on to win 21-16 following the Minnesota Vikings had hauled back out of three touchdowns down.
Aaron Rodgers started hot in the first half, pitching two touchdowns – to Jamaal Williams along with Geronimo Allison – although Aaron Jones driven in from two yards out to give a seemingly insurmountable 21-0 lead to Green Bay.

As they seemed to finish a comeback, their defense shut down Rodgers to the remainder of the game, and forced 2 fumbles.
After their three-touchdown lead had been taken by the Packers, 75 metres raced in reaction to the finish zone.
The Vikings came out as the stronger team in the second after incorporating a Dan Bailey field goal before the half.
Early in the third quarter, Kirk Cousins established a spiral and he took it straight from a guard’s arms for the score.
As Diggs was penalised for behavior the shortage remained at five factors and Bailey’s extra-point attempt has been blocked.
Multiple factors were traded by both teams before the Vikings pounded with Cook and Alexander Mattison to Green Bay land directing the way late .
Having a first-and-goal in the eight-yard lineup, Cousins gathered right, and strove to force a floated ball in the rear of the end zone to Diggs, but Kevin King with a diving catch intercepted it.
