Packers star Aaron Rodgers reacts to Vikings tie, gives injury update

Packers square up against Vikings on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers expected to play

That was negated by the roughing call, despite Matthews avoiding putting all of his weight on the quarterback.

After the game, Matthews was heated.

Asked about the pressure the Vikings got on Rodgers, Zimmer said: "Early in the game, I don't think we did". I can't blame it on nobody else. You let me know. "And he says, 'I love you, too.' ..." And to call it at that point in the game is just unbelievable. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was assessed a 15-yard penalty by referee Tony Corrente for roughing the passer and eight plays later the Vikings had tied the score on Cousins' 22-yard pass to Adam Thielen and then a pass that went to Stefon Diggs on a two-point conversion.

It's the second straight week Matthews has been called for roughing at a critical game juncture. However, Walsh missed 7 field goals and only 1 PAT last season, and he would be a cheap option to try out. And while the emphasis partly a reaction to Rodgers' broken collarbone past year, the Packers own defense was the guiltiest party in Week 1, drawing 3 calls (Nick Perry, Muhammad Wilkerson, Clay Matthews). "This week, that's unbelievable". The worst part is, we'll probably send it in and you know what they're going to say? "I believed that [Carlson] was going to make it". "And now it's like, 'Oh, Mike, you're an idiot.' So I don't know".

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams also took issue with the officiating after he was called for an offensive pass interference penalty that wiped out a 24-yard catch in the second quarter.

For now, Kane is just happy to be back with players he shared such a special time with in Russian Federation over the summer. Southgate said: " He's sat up in the dressing room and talking and seems fairly comfortable ".

Daniel Carlson missed both field goal attempts, however, and the Vikings had to settle for a 29-29 tie at Lambeau Field.

Quarterbacks are obviously the most valuable players on any football field and appear to be garnering undue protection from clean football plays as the NFL looks to protect its assets.

It was not a body-weight penalty, Corrente clarified, though Matthews said he didn't receive an explanation in the moments after the play. You'll be able to watch the game only on FOX6 starting at noon. I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks.

Saints 21, Browns 18 • In New Orleans, the Saints' Wil Lutz kicked a 44-yard field goal for with 21 seconds left, Cleveland kicker Zane Gonzalez pushed the second of his two missed field goals wide right in the final seconds, and the Saints held on for a victory that extended the Browns' winless streak to 19 games. The Rams have won their first two games for the first time since 2001, when they started 6-0 en route to the third Super Bowl appearance in team history.

Matthews said he did not get an explanation on the field.
