Packers fans react to blowout victory over the Vikings
MILWAUKEE -- Green Bay Packers fans are celebrating after a blowout home field victory over the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night.
Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns despite taking a seat for the fourth quarter. Eddie Lacy ran for more than 100 yards in a game for the first time all season, and the defense even got into the scoring act as Julius Peppers took a tipped pass from the line of scrimmage and ran it back for a touchdown -- and Peppers' first Lambeau Leap.
The Packers picked off two Ponder passes and recovered a fumble in the second quarter, giving the home team a 28-0 edge at the half.
\"It was amazing,\" Heidi VanDergerinten said. \"They were amazing. The best game I've ever been to. They scored 42 points and the Vikings didn't score until the fourth quarter.\"
The win puts the Packers at 3-2 on the season, with division wins in their last two games.
It was a wet game, but fans say the rain didn't put a damper on the excitement.
\"It was a great game to watch,\" Pat McNally said. \"It was exciting, we had a great time. The rain came and went, so on and so forth. I thought they would be a better match-up and they weren't.\"
Green Bay won't play another game against an NFC for until November 9th, when the Bears come to Lambeau Field for a Sunday Night Football match-up.
The Packers play next in Miami on October 12th.
