Packers' Matthews speaks on roughing the passer calls


This time, Matthews won't do that.

The shaky officiating call and the lack of clutch kicking certainly left a lot to be desired, but it shouldn't undercut the QB performances.

"I'm disappointed about my last two plays", Rodgers said.

"The guy lined up on the outside and he twisted inside and he grabbed our center and pulled him to the ground, which you're not supposed to do", Zimmer said.

"Did I put pressure on him?" To call it at that point of the game is just unbelievable.

"Last week, OK, shame on me".

For his part, this is what Carlson had to say for himself. "Obviously let my team down, I give credit to them, they fought back again and's disappointing to me". "At the same time, I don't know what else to do".

The Green Bay Packers' defense thinks that the new rules in place to protect quarterbacks makes it hard to play defense. I don't know what else to do. There were flags that wiped out a touchdown and others that wiped out a potentially game-clinching interception.

"There were times when we could have won it and there were times when the Packers felt like they should have won it", Cousins said. I mean, I don't know.

"He picked up the quarterback and drove him into the ground", Corrente told a pool reporter.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau , speaking at the Women in the World summit, was circumspect about the talks, saying only that he remains hopeful.

Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels said that the new set of rules impacted his thought process during the game, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. "It has nothing to do with helmet to helmet".

You be the judge.

By now, you probably know what happened next. Matthews' penalty on a 4th-down stop late last week could have cost the Packers the win. Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks also was assessed a roughing the passer call after a hit on Rodgers.

A fifth-round draft pick, Carlson missed a field goal in overtime that would have given Minnesota a big win over the Green Bay Packers. So in a way, Matthews is actually lucky that his penalty didn't lead to a Packers' loss. But it's a result neither team wanted, as they both had great chances to win.

He finished with a game-high 12 catches and a touchdown.

Cousins was, at one time, the highest paid player in National Football League history this year.

Not many quarterbacks in the nation can hit a pass like that while getting smacked by defenders and into double-coverage.

Protecting quarterbacks is important. But what Kirk Cousins did on Sunday could definitely be categorized as a seeing-eye touchdown.

Cousins is the first Vikings quarterback with 400 yards passing and four TD throws in a game since Daunte Culpepper on October 17, 2004, against the Saints.

"It's pretty hard", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, per ESPN. I got my head across, put my hands down.
