Week 12: Top 3 performance moments

Posted Nov 25, 2013

A quick glance at the highlights from Packers vs. Vikings


MATTHEWS RECORDS TWO EARLY SACKS

In the first quarter against the Vikings, LB Clay Matthews sacked Minnesota QB Christian Ponder twice, once to set up a third-and-long that led to a punt, and another to stop a Vikings drive in the red zone to force a field goal. Matthews had his first two-sack game since the NFC Wild Card playoff vs. Minnesota last January, and the Packers went on to record six sacks of Ponder as a team.


LACY, JONES CONVERT FOURTH DOWNS

During the Packers’ fourth-quarter comeback, both RB Eddie Lacy and WR James Jones converted key fourth downs. Lacy’s came on fourth-and-1 with less than 6 minutes left, when he appeared to be stopped in the backfield, but he powered through for a 4-yard gain, leading to a TD four plays later. On the Packers’ next possession, QB Matt Flynn took advantage of a free play – the Vikings had jumped offside – and found Jones downfield on fourth-and-6 for a 28-yard gain with just over a minute left, setting up the game-tying field goal.


BOYKIN TOE-TAPS SIDELINE FOR 34-YARD GAIN IN OT

On the opening possession of overtime, Flynn went deep down the left sideline for WR Jarrett Boykin, who made a leaping catch and tapped both feet in bounds at the Vikings’ 7-yard line. The big catch set up the go-ahead field goal to make it 26-23, giving the Packers their first lead since the second quarter.
