Frazier said Ponder “had some moments where he did some good things,” but he said the coaching staff will discuss Monday which quarterback will start next week at Dallas.

With the scored tied 10-10 in the second quarter, Rodgers showed off his quick release and pinpoint accuracy with a bullet pass to Jordy Nelson that resulted on a 76-yard touchdown.

Lined up in the slot, Nelson found a sliver of daylight near linebacker Chad Greenway, who had him blanketed. Rodgers read the matchup and made a snap decision to get the ball to Nelson, who won a footrace to the end zone.

Despite being severely outplayed, the Vikings trailed only 24-17 at halftime after Adrian Peterson scored on an 8-yard run with four seconds left.

But Rodgers engineered a 15-play, 80-yard drive on the opening possession of the second half. The drive lasted 8 minutes, 10 seconds and concluded with Eddie Lacy’s 1-yard touchdown run.

That essentially ended the game.

“I don’t know what to say,” Allen said. “I’ve never been a part of something like this.”
