If I was mm I would be ejected after that no call on a clear interference, and then a phantom push off to kill the drive. Ridiculous

3 defenders on one half of the field and Thielen. And not one zone defenders followed him and he catches an easy big gain. Enough with the zone. We just dont pay it well.

Come away with 3 at the end of the half, but that could have easily been 7. That's the first time I recall Rodgers ever mishandling a two minute drill. Taking his time with 120 left when they should have been hustling. and he wasnt aware they were out of time outs

As well as Cousins is playing, we held the Vikings to 7 points in the first half. 

Well done, defense.

Is this what it is like to have an above average defense? We actually force a punt here and there :)

The first half went well. Now, if the Packers can hold game and not get complacent in the second half...

Matthews is definitely atoning for his terrible game last week. That sack by Clark was made possible by CMIII almost knocking the ball out of Cousins' hand. He might not be getting the sack, but Matthews is definitely causing Cousins to hurry, move, and anyone in his area is getting a very tough reception. Maybe he finally realized he is on the last year of his contract, and on the wrong side of 30.

Pettine seems to have gotten Mathews in better controlled chaos this game

Was that really a hold on the Graham TD? It looked like Taylor rode his guy to the ground, but that the defender turned his back during the play without breaking contact. Another ticky-tacky call, like the Adams "pushoff".

That was a questionable at best on that holding call. The refs are pathetic so far.

Let's score a TD here and put the dagger in them.

has been a lot of ticky tacky calls thus far but the defense is having a solid game. reminds me of the tampa 2 defense. Having to drive the full length of the feld

They need a quicker developing pass play. Why is MM so averse to this! The only quick throws he is running is screens. Come on genius, stop trying to give away this game.

Defense has been phenomenal since the first drive. But we cant expect them to hold all day. This offense needs to step it up. Way too much time left
