Vikings cut kicker Carlson after failed field goals against Packers

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

Facing double coverage, Adam Thielen still caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Cousins with 31 seconds left on a drive that included a roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. Matthews' penalty on a 4th-down stop late last week could have cost the Packers the win. The refs in Sunday's game, unfortunately for the Packers, were even more clueless than normal.

After throwing an interception to Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on his previous drive that resulted in the score disparity growing to eight points, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins took a relatively clean hit from Matthews the second he released the ball deep downfield. They're gonna say, you know.

"I'm pretty sore right now, sore in some other spots too so that's taken away some of the knee pain", Rodgers said. "This week, that's unbelievable". The worst part is, we'll probably send it in and you know what they're going to say?

"They are going to have their moment".

"I knew the adrenaline would kick in but I feel good that I managed to make it through the game". You see how it changed the game, and I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control here.

"I didn't mean to rough (Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers) up or anything", Kendricks said. "At the same time, I don't know what else to do".

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.

"There were times when we could have won it and there were times when the Packers felt like they should have won it", Cousins said.

"He picked up the quarterback and drove him into the ground", Corrente told a pool reporter.

This rivalry didn't need any reinforcing, not after Barr ended Rodgers' and the Packers' season with the collarbone-snapping sack last October that prompted the National Football League to enhance its roughing rule.

Much was made during the preseason of the NFL's new rule that makes it a penalty for a player to lower his head and use his helmet to deliver a hit on an opponent.

Packers could have been beaten by the Vikings though kicker Daniel Carlson missed a field goal late in overtime.

"When [Matthews] hit the quarterback, he lifted him and drove him into the ground", Corrente said. Zimmer said after the game that Hill's injury isn't serious. "It has nothing to do with the rule of full body weight".

"It's pretty hard", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, per ESPN.
