this weekend at U.S. Bank Stadium Mike Hughes Jersey , which is more frequently used as the home field for the Minnesota Vikings.After knocking off Duke in the Elite Eight last Sunday,
Michigan State’s basketball team will be facing off against Texas Tech in the
late game on Saturday. As it happens, the Vikings are quarterbacked by a
Michigan State alum and he’s set to visit with the team before they take the
floor.Chris Tomasson of the reports that Michigan State basketball coach Tom
Izzo said that Kirk Cousins is expected to address Cassius Winston, Kenny Goins
and the rest of the team’s players on Friday.The topic of the speech is unknown,
but Cousins does have some recent experience with falling short of high
expectations so perhaps he will be giving his fellow Spartans a primer on how to
best avoid doing that on Saturday. Whatever the subject, we’ll have to wait a
bit to find out if the team liked what Cousins had to offer. GREEN BAY, Wis.
(AP) — Wide right Anthony Barr Jersey , times two.Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, and the Minnesota Vikings
had to settle for a 29-29 tie with the Green Bay Packers after rallying from a
late 13-point deficit on Sunday.The rookie’s final attempt went to the right of
the uprights, just like his kick from 49 earlier in overtime. Carlson also
missed from 48 in the second quarter.Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a
career high with five field goals, but his potential game-winner from 52 went
wide left as time expired in regulation.“It’s disappointing when you’ve got an
opportunity to win the football game there at the end and you come up with a
tie. It’s better than a loss,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.It was the second
straight week with a tie in the NFL after the Steelers and Browns played to a
draw in their opener.The result at Lambeau Field overshadowed memorable
performances from both quarterbacks.Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers played with a
brace on his injured left knee and threw for 281 yards and a 9-yard touchdown
pass to Davante Adams .But a mishandled handoff with 5:17 left in overtime cost
the Packers a chance at another long field-goal attempt. Rodgers recovered the
fumble on second-and-1 at the 37, and he was sacked on third down to push Green
Bay back to the 47.“Close to an ‘L.’ Doesn’t feel great Everson Griffen Jersey ,” Rodgers said about the tie.Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns, including three in the fourth
quarter. He also threw an interception to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix after the ball
bounced off the hands of Laquon Treadwell with 2:13 left.Everything seemed to go
the Vikings’ way in the fourth, when they rallied from a 20-7 deficit. Until
that point, the Packers had put together the kind of complete performance needed
to support Rodgers, who got hurt in Green Bay’s opening victory against
Chicago.Facing double coverage, Adam Thielen still caught a 22-yard touchdown
pass from Cousins with 31 seconds left on a drive that included a
roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. Stefon Diggs caught a 2-point
conversion pass to tie it at 29.“I don’t know where to start, to be honest with
you. I have so many emotions running through as far as what a terrible call it
was Kyle Rudolph Jersey ,” Matthews said. “At the same time, I don’t know what else to do.”The penalty negated an interception by Jaire Alexander with 1:45 left
that would have allowed the Packers to run out the clock. Referee Tony Corrente
said the call was not related to the new helmet-to-helmet rule.“He picked up the
quarterback and drove him into the ground,” Corrente told a pool
reporter.Rodgers, who finished 30 of 42, didn’t have his typical mobility that
allows him to busy time for receivers.But he was able to move around enough to
scramble out of trouble on occasion. Operating out of shotgun or pistol
formations also bought Rodgers more time.The Packers (1-0-1), though, could have
used more touchdowns from the offense.They did get one on special teams after
Geronimo Allison blocked a punt that was recovered by Josh Jackson in the end
zone for a touchdown.Thielen had 12 catches for 131 yards for Minnesota
(1-0-1) Linval Joseph Jersey , while Diggs had nine catches for 128 yards and two scores.JUST FOR KICKERSCarlson said he thought it might have been the first time
he had missed three field goals in a game.“I think I went out each time and it
was a new kick,” Carlson said. “Went out there confident, but something
obviously was off and I’ve got to fix that and help this team.”The last attempt
from 35 was set up with the ball placed between the hash marks, but Carlson
still missed.JUST FOR KICKERS IICrosby almost had six field goals, but his
first, successful attempt from 52 at the end of the regulation was erased
because the Vikings called timeout right before the snap.ALL TIED UPAccording to
the NFL , this is the first time since 1973 that there were two ties in the
first two weeks of the season. The Lions-Packers game Kirk Cousins Jersey , along with the Eagles-Giants game, each ended a tie in week 2 that year.It’s also the first time in league history that a game ended in
a 29-29 tie.QUOTABLE“We’re disappointed with the outcome. Had a number of
opportunities to come away with the win, but the tie, as they say, it is what
is.” — Packers coach Mike McCarthy.INJURIESVikings starting right tackle Rashad
Hill had to be helped off the field with a right ankle injury in the third
quarter. He was then carted to the locker room after getting to the sideline.UP
