VIEW FROM PACKER COUNTRY
The Packers had an up-close look at Plan B Sunday at Lambeau Field. And production on offense actually increased. When right tackle T.J. Lang was lost to an ankle injury, undrafted rookie Don Barclay saw his first snaps of the season on the offensive line. After a rocky start, he settled in and played well. Against a dangerous Vikings front four, Barclay held his own. Said Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's a physical guy, he's a tough guy. He's what you're looking for as far as your right tackle."

Vikings CB Antoine Winfield vs. Packers WR Randall Cobb
Cobb had six catches, but his one big reception (33 yards) came against Mistral Raymond. Winfield, who made nine tackles, played Cobb to a draw.
"The No. 1 rule as a quarterback is to not throw across your body, across the middle of the field."
