LEADER OF THE PACK

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has passed for 2,823 yards and 24 touchdowns against the Vikings. He has only four interceptions and a 116.4 passer rating. Here are details from his 10 career starts against the Vikings.

2008

Sept. 8 at Green Bay: Making his first career start, Rodgers completed 18 of 22 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown in a 24-19 Packers victory. He also rushed for a 1-yard score. "I've been dreaming of that for four years," Rodgers said of his Lambeau Leap following his TD run.

Nov. 9 at Minnesota: Rodgers was 15-for-26 for 142 yards, but Adrian Peterson ran for 192 yards in a 28-27 Vikings victory. Mason Crosby's 52-yard field-goal attempt in the closing seconds went wide. Rodgers was sacked four times -- once for a safety by Jared Allen -- and called for intentional grounding in his own end zone for another safety, both in the second quarter. "It was a combination of we didn't do the fundamentals the way we know how to and me probably holding the ball too long," Rodgers said.

2009

Oct. 5 at Minnesota: Rodgers went 26-for-37 for 384 yards, two TDs and an interception, but former Packer Brett Favre outdueled him in a 30-23 Vikings victory. "Below my expectations, definitely," Rodgers said after being sacked eight times.

Nov. 1 at Green Bay: Favre had four touchdown passes to again outplay Rodgers (26-for-41 for 287 yards and three TDs) in a 38-26 Vikings victory. "This one will hurt for a couple of days," said Rodgers, who was sacked six times.

2010

Oct. 24 at Green Bay: Rodgers was 21-for-34 for 295 yards, with two TDs and two picks, but the Packers won 28-24 as three potential Vikings' TDs were reversed by replay review.

Nov. 21 at Minnesota: Rodgers was 22-for-31 for 301 yards and four scores -- three to Greg Jennings -- in a 31-3 victory that caused Vikings coach Brad Childress to be fired. "We're going to be tough to beat when we're playing that well," Rodgers said.

2011

Oct. 23 at Minnesota: Rodgers was nearly perfect (146.5 passer rating) after going 24-for-30 for 335 yards and three touchdowns as he rallied his team to a 33-27 victory in Christian Ponder's first start for the Vikings. "There's not a lot of panic on this team," Rodgers said. "Just a lot of focus."

Nov. 14 at Green Bay: Rodgers threw for 250 yards and four scores as the Packers beat up on the Vikings 45-7.

2012

Dec. 2 at Green Bay: Peterson ran for 210 yards, but Rodgers was 27-for-35 for 286 yards, one TD and one interception in a 23-14 victory. "Everything's right in front of us," Rodgers said of his team's playoff push.

Sunday at Minnesota: Rodgers led the Packers to scores on six of their final seven possessions, going 28-for-40 for 365 yards and four touchdowns. But the Vikings won 37-34 to make the playoffs and deny the Packers a first-round bye.
