The field was slipppery, the air was cold and the Vikings were lukewarm for most of the game. But they turned it on just enough to put away the Packers at frigid Lambeau Field. With the win, the Vikings improved their chances of securing at least a No. 2 seed in the playoffs.
Vikings WR Stefon Diggs vs. Packers CB Josh Hawkins
Against an overmatched Hawkins, Diggs picked up his seventh TD of the season in the first half, more evidence he and Adam Thielen make up one of the best tandems in the league.
PLAY OF THE GAME
TOE THE LINE
Case Keenum looked out of options as he darted toward the line of scrimmage then backpedaled before making a jump pass into the hands of tight end David Morgan. Morgan avoided two tackles and picked up 23 yards on third-and-13 to keep alive the drive that was capped by the second of three field goals for Kai Forbath.
“The fans out here got the Skol chant going. It felt like a home game by the end of it.”
