The Green Bay Packers took a 44-31 win over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night in Minnesota. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw to WR Jordy Nelson for two touchdowns and 285 yards to start the Packers off on the right foot.
With three offensive players injured, the Packers' outlook for the week wasn't necessarily optimistic – but with Rodgers at the helm and Micah Hyde stepping up for a record-breaking 109-yard punt return TD, the Packers made it look almost easy.
"We've got a great team, very well-coached," Rodgers said. "Guys are ready to play. It was loud in here. It was a tough environment, but guys stepped up."
And he wasn't kidding. Nelson, Greg Jennings, Eddie Lacy and James Starks all put up touchdowns for the green and yellow. Mason Crosby kicked four field goals, the last one a 45-yarder.
The Packers look ahead to taking on the Bears next week for Monday Night Football.
