Packers lose to Vikings, 24-17

Green Bay now 0-7 in road games this season
Packers lose to Vikings, 24-17

The Packers lost to the Vikings, 24-17, at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday night. It’s the first time sine 1994 that the Packers lost at the Vikings on the same weekend that the Gophers beat the Badgers in Madison.

Earlier this week, Aaron Rodgers said the Packers just needed “on galvanizing moment,” as the team faced a pinnacle game against Minnesota. Green Bay needed this road win badly to have any glimmer of hope of making the playoffs. The last time the Packers lost seven straight road game was the 1978-1979 season.

Rodgers completed 17 of 28 passes, threw for 198 yards and one touchdown. Meanwhile, Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 29 of 38 passes, threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns.

The Packers fall to 4-6-1 on the season. Green Bay will host the Arizona Cardinals next week.
