LACY BULLDOZES WAY TO 27 YARDS*
With the score tied at 6 early in the second quarter, RB Eddie Lacy burst through a hole on the right side and then spun and dodged his way to a 27-yard run, matching his jersey number. The big gain set up a field goal that gave the Packers the lead for good in the game, and Lacy went on to finish with 22 carries for 100 yards, his first 100-yard game of the season.
JONES TIP-TOES FOR TD, ADDS 2-POINTER*
Trying to add to a 19-13 lead and facing a crucial third down on the first play of the fourth quarter, QB Aaron Rodgers rolled to his right and fired into the end zone for WR James Jones, who kept his toes in bounds and made the catch for a 27-yard TD. Earlier on the drive, Jones had juggled and hauled in a 37-yard catch along the sideline to convert another third down, and he finished the game with six catches for 109 yards. After the TD, his team-leading seventh on the season, Jones also caught an improvised shovel pass from Rodgers for the two-point conversion and a 27-13 Green Bay advantage.
DEFENSE GETS BACK-TO-BACK SACKS*
One drive after recovering an Adrian Peterson fumble to stop a Vikings drive in Green Bay territory in the fourth quarter, the Packers defense got after Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater. Mike Daniels sacked him for an 8-yard loss on second down, and then Datone Jones got his second sack of the game for a 10-yard loss on third down. Those were the fifth and sixth sacks on the day for the defense, which had gone the previous three games without a single sack.
