Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was listed as a full practice participant for the first time since being slowed by the first of two leg injuries.
Mutiny or much ado about nothing, the Vikings were feeble in allowing Nelson to torch them for two touchdowns and 145 of his 154 yards in the first half and appeared dysfunctional for igniting controversy as their season smolders in ruins.
Sunday morning, the record was corrected.
Green Bay defeated Minnesota 38-25 at Lambeau Field on Christmas Eve for its 5th straight win. After Green Bay's first possession resulted in a punt, Zimmer and the coaching staff told the defensive backs to play the right scheme.
Zimmer said Monday that he spoke to Rhodes and that he doesn't believe "that's what he meant to say" about what happened early in the game because "it was one series". He threw a 17-yard touchdown to Chris Thompson in the first quarter and scored on a 9-yard run in the second.
It's also worth noting Rodgers has been forced to carry most of the burden offensively for the Packers while their running back depth has been a mess all season. But let's let Rhodes speak for himself, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune after Saturday's game. "I could've been more specific".
"I would have saved it for another game if I was them", Harris said.
Google will launch two new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches in 2017
This means the new smartwatch will not be branded like its Google-branded flagship phones such as Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL. To benefit from the renewed interest in smartwatches is Google which would roll out two flagship smartwatches in 2017.
Second down: In the latest sign that Ty Montgomery is going to get more and more carries each week, the Packers didn't use him on kickoff returns against the Vikings.
The Packers struck first on Rodgers' 21-yard touchdown pass to Nelson, who slipped a tackle from safety Andrew Sendejo and powered through Kendricks for the final few yards. I just don't think we played good. He said Wednesday he was "taking it one day at a time to see how I feel".
In the second half, Rhodes did shadow Nelson the way he was supposed to and held the receiver to just nine yards on two catches.
"I was concerned because if he doesn't jump right back up, it's unusual", McCarthy said.
You can add player mutiny to the growing list of things that have gone haywire for the Minnesota Vikings in 2016. "Someone decided they wouldn't do that".
The Vikings (7-8) are headed in the other direction, the loss extinguishing their faint playoff hopes. "I think that did give us a little confidence". Smith, who was hurt November 20 against Arizona and re-injured his ankle December 1 against Dallas, could return after missing two games. Even if the Vikings win their next two games - against the Packers and Chicago Bears - the Vikings still only have a 13 percent chance to qualify. I know the trade deadline has passed, but could Belichick swing a halftime trade to send Rhodes to Cleveland for the season finale?
