Packers pound Vikings on "Sunday Night Football"
The Green Bay Packers now have the fourth-best record in the N-F-C, after beating Minnesota 44-to-31 last night at the Metrodome. The Packers were up 24-17 at the break, and they scored the first 17 points of the second half to break this one open. Playing without seven starters, Aaron Rodgers had nearly pinpoint accuracy -- especially on third down, when he threw a perfect 10-for-10. He was 24-of-29 on the night for 285 yards and two touchdowns to Jordy Nelson.
