GAME BALLS

Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila: The defensive end will represent the whitewashing Packers defense by virture of his two sacks and three quarterback hurries.

Ryan Grant, Packers: The young running back had 119 yards on 25 carries, caught five passes and scored on a 30-yard first-quarter run.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Third quarter, 1:40 remaining, Packers led 27-0

Vikings second-and-10 at the Green Bay 37

The play: Brooks Bollinger hit Adran Peterson for an 11-yard gain to the Packers 26.

The result: Peterson bruised his right knee. He thinks he's OK, but if not, Sunday's game will be blacked out and the sad remains of the Vikings' season will be falling below the fickle fans' radar.

MONDAY MORNING QB, ON THE QBS

This week's starter: Brooks Bollinger

Play: He wasn't worse than others on the offense, which isn't exactly a compliment. Grade: Wynn

Leadership: Is Brooks on the mysterious "Leadership Council?" And more importantly, do they serve cookies at their meetings? Grade: Wynn

Stats: Seven yards in the first half? Only a 50-yard screen to Chester Taylor kept Brooksie from abysmal numbers. Grade: Wade

Overall: After two nice relief stints, Bollinger got his first start for the Vikings. We expect Tarvaris back on Sunday. Grade: Wynn

About the Raiders

Quite frankly, the Raiders are probably worse than the Vikings. After a 17-6 loss to visiting Chicago, they are 2-7 and might be unveiling No. 1 overall choice JaMarcus Russell at quarterback.

Dangerous player

Justin Fargas, above, has won the starting running back job by averaging 106.7 yards from scrimmage the past three games.
