The Minnesota Vikings completely clamped down on Brett Hundley and the Green By Packers. Minnesota was so good that Mike McCarthy’s team couldn’t muster up a single point and you have to question whether or not Green Bay made the right move when they opted not to sign a QB after Aaron Rodgers’ injury? Minnesota didn’t look too hot either offensively but at least they were able to put up enough points on the board to get the win. Case Keenum threw for 139 passing yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions which was the better performance out of the two signal callers. Latavius Murray racked up 69 rushing yards on the ground for the Vikings offense too. While Stefon Diggs had a big night through the air hauling in 60 yards and 1 touchdown. Brett Hundley passed for 130 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions which ended up being another rough outing for him. Jamaal Williams had the most rushing yards for the Packers he recorded 58 yards in the contest. Michael Clark led all of Green Bay’s receivers with 36 yards so as you can see it wasn’t a very productive game for the team from Wisconsin. Defensively Harrison Smith was extremely potent chalking up 8 tackles and 2 interceptions. Eric Kendricks was tough against the running game also he added 8 tackles to the Vikings defensive output. Jake Ryan was solid for the Packers defensive unit he compiled 11 tackles. Blake Martinez was the other stand out for Pack Nation he also had 11 tackles. This is another huge win for Minnesota and all signs point to this franchise being a true contender. Case Keenum needs to show he can continue to raise the bar for this team when the pressure is on. Keenum will be tested throughout the postseason and if he comes up big his legacy will keep growing.
