Two is better than three for Packers



Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert


MINNEAPOLIS -- I can’t argue with Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy’s challenge of Aaron Rodgers’ fumble at 1-yard line, even though it ultimately led to officials ruling the play a safety. Last time I checked, two points is better than an almost-certain three.

There is always the chance that the Vikings could have fumbled or somehow committed a turnover after taking over the ball at the 1-yard line, but the odds are much greater they would have turned the play into more than two points.

Minnesota leads 30-14 with 7:13 remaining. Unless something changes significantly, I’ll be back with you shortly after the game.
