Noteworthy: Lacy not only had a season-high 29 carries (for 94 yards), he also had a season high in snaps. So did Kuhn, who was used more often as a fullback in a two-back set than as the single back. … Taylor’s lone snap came on a second-quarter third-and-1 play from the Vikings 35-yard line. Coach Mike McCarthy used seven offensive linemen, adding Taylor and Newhouse as extra blockers, plus Bostick and Quarless, and Lacy still was stuffed for no gain. … Bakhtiari played almost exclusively across from Vikings defensive end Jared Allen, who did not record a tackle, sack or quarterback hit.
Noteworthy: The defense was on the field for a season-low 19 minutes and six seconds. … Palmer made his first start at outside linebacker and also played more snaps than fellow rookie Mulumba for the first time this season. … Daniels is playing the most among the linemen because he’s playing the best. He had two sacks to double his season total, which leads the team. … Five cornerbacks – Williams, Shields, Hayward, Hyde and House – all played, with Hayward making his season debut. He and Hyde split snaps in the dime package, where Jerron McMillian has lost his spot. He didn’t play a single snap on defense.
