Vikings 28, Packers 22: 2-minute drill

Green Bay allowed Dalvin Cook to score four touchdowns and fell 28-22 to Minnesota at a windy Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon.

Game Balls

Offense: RB Dalvin Cook

The Pro Bowl running back went off against the Packers defense. Cook finished as the leading rusher and receiver for the Vikings, accounting for 163 yards on the ground and 63 yards on two catches. He became the first player to amass 200-plus total yards and score four touchdowns in a game at Lambeau Field. His 226 yards accounted for 69.8% of the Vikings offense on Sunday. In five career games against Green Bay, Cook is averaging 126.2 yards per contest and he’s scored eight touchdowns.

Defense: LB Eric Kendricks

With the wind a huge factor in the game, the Vikings had to stop the run and it started with Kendricks. He finished with a team-high 12 tackles and limited Green Bay to 109 yards on the ground, with much of that came in the first half. After halftime, Kendricks showed off his coverage skills, staying with wide receiver Davante Adams down the middle of the field. Without his coverage, Adams likely catches the pass and goes in for a touchdown that would have tied the game.
