So, here’s what happened based on the things we predicted in our Pregame Predictions column:
Aaron Rodgers throws an interception (I said it)
I had a feeling. It was the right feeling.
The Vikings rush for over 100 yards with whoever they march out there
I had a feeling. It was the wrong feeling. I did not see that defensive performance coming. I knew they were capable of it, but I didn’t think they would actually do it. The Vikings got 57 yards.
Aaron Jones gets at least 3 catches after having 0 in 3 of the last 5 games
If he wouldn’t have dropped an easy screen, he would have had 3. I’m being generous with my credit here.
The Vikings take deep shots early
They sure did, they even tried Philly Special. The only problem is Kirk Cousins.
Rodgers is sacked multiple times
Yeah, 3 qualifies as multiple.
Tyler Ervin busts off a long return on the fast track
An 11-yarder is nothing to sneeze at considering the team had -8 total yards before he arrived. Only one person in the league averages more than 9.5 yards per return.
Stefon Diggs leads the game in receiving yards
He came in second, but had the most fantasy point./
Birds will be murdered by the Vikings eyesore of a stadium
You know it!
Packers 20, Vikings 27
I own my decisions. I really didn’t think the Packers were going to come through, especially after the disastrous first half by the offense. I was close on the Packers score, but way too generous to Kirk Cousins on a Monday night.
Total Predictions: 9
Total Score: 6.7
