NFL: Around the water coolerFour things we’re talking about after the Minnesota Vikings’ 30-23 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night:
Allen’s sack attack
Minnesota All-Pro defensive lineman Jared Allen sets a Monday Night Football record with 4½ quarterback sacks and follows each one with his now-famous calf-roping technique. Yee-haw!
The importance of Rice
Minnesota’s Sidney Rice goes high to recover two onside kicks late in the game.
Favre defeats all teams
Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre completes a record which will never be repeated. With the victory over Green Bay, he has now defeated all 32 teams in the NFL. His QB rating for the game is a whopping 135.3.
Running game stalls out
Minnesota All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson is held to 55 yards on 22 carries. So, for all the fantasy players, maybe next week.
