The quickest way to put a division loss far into the memory bank is to pick up a big win over another rival. The Vikings did just that Sunday, fending off the Packers 24-17 at U.S. Bank Stadium in a game that might not completely take away the sting of the Week 11 loss to the Bears but should provide plenty of momentum for the next two weeks on the road.

Adam Thielen, Kirk Cousins and Mike Zimmer addressed the victory late Sunday night, and Star Tribune Vikings reporters Ben Goessling and Andrew Krammer offered their thoughts from the press box.
