Vikings Beat Packers, Claim Division Lead
The Minnesota Vikings (4-2) beat the Green Bay Packers (4-2) 23-10 this afternoon in Minneapolis. Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone on a hit by Anthony Barr and may miss the rest of the season.
Vikings backup quarterback Case Keenum was 24 of 38 269 for 159 yards and one touchdown. Running back Jerick McKinnon carried the ball 16 times for the Vikes, gaining 69 yards. Receiver Adam Thielen had 9 catches for 97 yards. Minnesota kicker Kai Forbath hit 3 field goals.
The Packers lost Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter, breaking his collarbone on a hit by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. Green Bay announced on Twitter that Rodgers could miss the rest of the season.
With the win, the Vikings find themselves in a tie for first place with Green Bay (although if the season ended today the Vikes would be champs due to their win over the Packers.)
Next Sunday the Vikings are at home against the Baltimore Ravens at Noon at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis (TV: FOX, Radio: AM 1240 WJON).
