  • Green Bay has elected to receive so the Packers will get the first chance at it offensively
  • 3rd and 5.
  • Caught that's a first down for Donald Driver
  • Fumbled by Rodgers in the backfield but he dives right on top of it
  • So that means here comes Brett Favre and the Minnesota offense
  • [Crowd collectively boos]
  • [Burns] Smithers, are they booing me?
  • [Smithers] No... they're saying boo-urns.
  • Boo-urns.
  • [Burns] Are you saying boo or boo-urns?
  • [Crowd boos]
  • First down reception
  • A three game divisional lead
  • Ball is loose
  • still loose
  • And it looks like the Packers have it at the 20 they do
  • Rodgers on 3rd and 5
  • Rolls... and down he goes
  • Not allowing them to get to the endzone
  • 37 yard field goal try is good
  • A 37 yard field goal by Crosby
  • So now the electrifying rookie out of the University of Florida Percy Harvin brings
  • it across the 30
  • Harvin already a pair of touchdown returns this season
  • Inside the 30... inside the 20... all the way down to the 14
  • A lot of these guys that return kicks they wanna get to the sideline, not Percy Harvin
  • He immediately takes it north and south he gets one on one on the kicker
  • and then it's just a foot race as to whether or not he can get to the endzone but
  • there's not a lot of jitterbug in Percy Harvin when he takes the ball and has it in his hands
  • Taylor... great open field tackle made by Nick Barnett
  • And now a flag comes in.
  • Some extracurricular activity after the tackle was made with Anthony Herrera
  • [Corrente] At the conclusion of all the action in the dead ball period,
  • personal foul, headbutt, defense #97
  • Could he get in?
  • Yes.
  • Touchdown Adrian Peterson
  • 3rd down and long yard for the Packers
  • and Rodgers out of the shotgun fakes it and is looking down the field
  • being chased by Edwards who got him all the way back at the 17
  • 3rd and 4, blitz coming.
  • Favre gets it way catch made by Harvin
  • Here at Lambeau, over a 16 year period
  • Pump fake one way, and throws the other way catch is made by Berrian
  • Favre appeared to underthrow that ball and it was still caught by Rice
  • boy does he have some hands
  • Seventh play of the drive.
  • Favre guns it over the middle it's caught and in the endzone
  • for Visanthe Shiancoe
  • and his team leads 14-3.
  • Rodgers again under huge pressure and Jared Allen got him.
  • That's three sacks already for Minnesota
  • Peterson into the open field and still on his feet inside the 30
  • and finally caught by Al Harris close to the 15 yard line
  • So now Longwell going for a 29 yard yard field goal try
  • [Corrente] Neutral zone infraction, defense, stepped into the neutral zone causing the
  • offensive player to false start.
  • Five yard penalty, will remain 4th down
  • I'm not sure if Peterson got it
  • They elected to run the ball rather than play action and Peterson is denied the first down
  • But he's not having one of 'em here in this first half
  • They fake it to Grant before Rodgers can even look up he is sacked again
  • Rice
  • Good snap, good hold, and as Longwell did for so many years
  • 3rd and 17 three man rush and Favre's gonna pick that apart all day long
  • Favre and the Vikings at midfield on first down
  • And Favre to throw, unbelievable protection
  • Throws into traffic and the catch made by Harvin
  • He cuts it back the other way and into the endzone touchdown Percy Harvin
  • And as a result Favre has a little bit of time.
  • I mean there's a little pressure up inside
  • But you see he's able to stay there and deliver it
  • Percy Harvin workin' inside they've got some defenders there
  • He just goes up and makes a play
  • I mean he makes the play on the ball, no one else does and it's keystone cops
  • Rodgers will put it up and wide open receiver is Greg Jennings
  • And Rodgers sacked back at the 8
  • Jared Allen again
  • You can't take the sacks that he is taking
  • 26 yard field goal try is good
  • Rodgers under tremendous pressure
  • Squib kick and out on across and a ball, football is loose
  • And it looks like the Packers have recovered down at the bottom of that pile
  • Rodgers to the endzone
  • Touchdown Spencer Havner
  • Great protection this time
  • and across the middle the catch is made to the 45 inside the 40 still on his feet
  • Havner again touchdown and the game is on in Green Bay
  • And paying huge dividends now these last two weeks
  • Percy Harvin trying to change the momentum
  • Trying to turn the corner across midfield
  • and some of that momentum comes back to the Vikings side
  • Favre fires again to Harvin who makes a catch
  • Favre on 3rd and goal
  • Throws a touchdown to the tight end Jeff Dugan
  • But he's been big in the receiving game also
  • Rodgers tiptoes out of trouble and he's gonna run it
  • Still on his feet inside the 20, the 15
  • and steps out of bounds at the 12 yard line
  • That's a flag all the way and a touchdown reception by Jennings
  • the flag came down long before the ball was ever in the endzone
  • Green Bay 1 of 2 on 2 point conversions this season
  • Right through the fingertips
  • Peterson
  • Across midfield tackled from behind
  • Bad snap.
  • Rodgers able to get his hands on it
  • and then throws complete over the middle to midfield
  • And Rodgers... is that a sack.
  • They're saying...
  • Jared Allen is saying sack and the officials agree
  • From 50 and beyond this year
  • No good
  • And he's throwing on first down
  • A screen to Adrian Peterson who rushes down the sideline cuts it back to the inside
  • and tackled at the 14
  • Favre a short drop catch is made and close to the endzone
  • Touchdown Bernard Berrian
  • Fourth touchdown pass of the game for #4
  • Rodgers on 4th down
  • Let's it fly incomplete and that outta do it
  • And now it'll expire and
  • the Vikings go to 7-1 the Packers slip to 4-3
  • Former Packers Ryan Longwell and Brett Favre celebrating a 38-26 win
