My game ball goes to Clay Matthews and Jaire Alexander.  Matthews gets great pressure on the QB and Alexander with the INT to seal the game.   Well, that is how the game should of ended so I am going to stick with both of them receiving my game ball.   #PackersWereScrewByBadOfficiating

Good choices. And here is an official explanation as to why the refs threw a flag on CMIII on that crucial play, where Alexander got his first interception: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/09/16/key-clay-matthews-foul-arose-from-burping-not-body-weight/

I hate to say it, but if Matthews indeed picked up Cousins and slammed him to the ground, that was a legitimate call. At the same time, I didn't see that happen, either in real time or in the replay. But, the ref definitely had a good view of the play. And no one complained when the Packers got 15 for a similar foul earlier. Though the timing couldn't have been worse.

ricky, no disrespect intended, but I have watched the play over and over. There is no lift and no slam. It was simply a legitimate hit on a QB as he was releasing the ball. Cousins launched himself into the air to throw a bomb as far has he could. There was no way for Matthews to stop in that split second. If that is not a legal hit, no hit on the QB of any kind is a legal hit. If they want the QB to were a red jersey and be down by two hand touch - change the rules to reflect that, but no way was that a lift and drive into the ground.

An inexcusable call. Matthews did everything short of provide a pillow for him to land on and serve him milk an cookies. He did not lift him, nor did he drive him into the ground. There was no way to stop as the contact came within a second of Cousins releasing the throw.

A very poorly officiated game - perhaps the single worst I have ever seen, including with replacement refs.

Feels like a loss. The awful roughing the passer call will go down with the 'fail mary' as two of the worst calls in the last 20 years.

Tony Corrente is a good referee, but this is really an awful call.

Referee Tony Corrente told pool reporter @RobDemovsky that Matthews was flagged because, "when he hit the quarterback, he lifted him and drove him into the ground." Was not the new NFL rule about body weight on the QB. Watching this replay ... I don't see it.

Tony Corrente, on what Clay Matthews could have done to avoid the penalty: "Not picked him up and drove him into the ground."

So, exactly what Matthews did?

I second this emotion.

Certainly should be folded into menu of reviewable plays in the last two minutes.

If Tony Corrente thought Clay lifted Cousins, the replay would have quickly shown him otherwise.

It was fun and frustrating to watch.  Bad calls at key times against both sides.  Momentum shifts and a somewhat just finish.  Neither team deserved to lose the game and neither team did.  Roger's was Rogers and Cousins's played the best he has ever had been.  If there was any mistake, it was the play calling of two passes which were incomplete and allowed the Vikes to preserve their time outs. The good news is this team can go toe to toe with an a super bowl contender.

Ricky, that didnt happen. Your eyes are telling you that, same as my eyes telling me that. It's a BS excuse by the officiating crew to cover their horse sh*$ penalty that they know was wrong.

It could be it was seen as payback for an earlier similar bad call against MN for hitting Aaron.

True, but then that call should have been redemption for the two no-calls that were clear PI, and the "pushing off" on Adams that was complete crap. These smug little zebras know what they did, and they will never live up to it.

after King went down that changed the defenses dynamic. If King is healthy I think our defense is at least on par with Minnesota's. Hopefully he is back next week

Groin injury. Here is what Acme had to say when House replaced King, and boy, were they right, unfortunately:
