Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Brett Favre jogged out of the tunnel in a purple helmet. He might as well have been wearing a black hat.No, Favre didn't seem to relish playing the villain in his return to Lambeau Field. But it was going to take more than a chorus of boos to throw him off his game.
Rodgers Sacked To Losses
The Vikings are 2-0 against the Packers, because Green Bay's pass protection has failed. Of the Vikings' 14 sacks in two wins over the Packers, 12 came with standard pressure (no additional pass rushers) and nine came with Aaron Rodgers in the shotgun (when he supposedly would have more time to pass).
