THE MORNING AFTER: 5 Observations From The Vikings 30-13 Loss To The Packers
Back to life, back to reality.” Those were just some of, the more appropriate, words uttered by Vikings fans after yesterday’s 30-13 loss at the hands of the Green Bay Packers.
Packers rise up, knock off Vikings 30-13
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers aren’t quite ready to give up control of the NFC North. The young Vikings weren’t poised enough to take it from them either.

The running back never got going and had a costly fumble on a day full of Vikings mistakes.
The window was a foot wide. Maybe two. Hardly enough space to consider placing a football. Aaron Rodgers didn’t flinch.
Eddie Lacy continued his success against the Vikings by running for 100 yards on 22 carries in Green Bay’s 30-13 victory Sunday.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater acknowledged Green Bay’s strong play, but said the Vikings’ own error knocked them out of the fight.
