Packers at Vikings Week 6 Recap

The Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers in Minneapolis Sunday by a score of 23 to 10. The biggest news stemming from the game: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left in the first quarter due to a broken collarbone. He could miss the rest of the season.

Green Bay was not the same after losing their star quarterback. Packers backup Brett Hundley replaced Rodgers in the second quarter and struggled. The 2015 5th-round pick went 18 of 33 for 157 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. He also fumbled once and was sacked four times for a total of 20 yards. His QB rating was 39.6.

Green Bay’s rushing attack also sputtered as it squared up against Minnesota’s 6th-ranked run defense. Running backs Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones combined for 69 yards on 23 carries (3.0 YPC) as the Packers failed to get any momentum going on offense.

Sam Bradford, who has missed four of the past five games, is day-to-day with a knee injury, while Stefon Diggs is nursing a hamstring injury.

Bradford reached a point of being unable to protect himself Monday night against the Chicago Bears, but he did not suffer a new injury in his knee, according to team trainer Eric Sugarman. After missing practice this week, he was officially ruled out by head coach Mike Zimmer Friday.
