BEAT THE PACKERS!!! (2nd Half) 3 of 3
Storybook start to the second half!!!!! DID I SAY FAVRE WAS AWESOME, DID I? WELL THEN I SHOULD HAVE!!! He’s 39 years old (40 next week) and playing better than half his age. Aaron Rodgers, Favre’s protégé and replacement, has played very well for the Packs, and continued his attack on the Vikings defense in the second half, but sadly for cheesehead nation the Vike defense is too strong. HA! Score: 14-28, Vikings lead (of course).
It’s the third quarter and you know Adrian Peterson is set to break off a couple big plays soon, but for now he is shut down and this only hurts the Viking offense. The Viking defense are another story. They force the Packers to kick and the special teams take the ball to midfield. Even though Peterson is taken out of the equation for the offense again Favre stays solid, unfortunately he is not able to keep the chains moving. The Packs get the ball and they do nothing but fail on every possession. DE #69 Jared Allen does not let down, sacking Rodgers in the end zone. It’s a safety with 7.21 minutes remaining. 7 sacks on aaron Rodgers, with 4 hits from #69 Jared Allen. Unbelievable defense. I actually felt bad for the Packers for a few long seconds. Even the Vikings punt kicking was perfect, and mind you both teams are undefeated so the packers aren’t exactly a weak team.
The Vikings allow the Packs to score because Brad Childress is cool like that. LOL. We can’t have Packers fans crying in the Viking stands now can we? Just Kidding. I don’t think Coach Childress’s 3rd down play (to have Favre throw a deep ball instead of running the time down with a run) with 3:12 or so left was such a bad idea. If the ball were caught the play would have been perfect timing. But I’ll tell you there’s 2 minutes left and the game is still close. Score: 20, 30 Vikings lead. And just now Jared Allen has yet ANOTHER sack. The packers settle for a field goal making the score: 23, 30. There’s 55 seconds left and only a touchdown difference. Sidney Rice on the special teams makes another great play and grabs the side kick like he did previously in the game. The game ends with the Vikings running down the clock. The master schools the student. Mister miyagi putting the wax on the packers. Great game, perfect ending. THE VIKINGS BEAT THE PACKERS.
