Packers Roll Over Lions 31-6
Ahman Green rushed 23 times for 160 yards, including a 65-yard touchdown scamper on his first carry as the Packers crushed the Detroit Lions 31-6. The Packers snapped a two-game home losing streak.
The Pack defense proved to be more than up to the task of handling Joey Harrington, picking him off a total of three times. One of those interceptions went to rookie linebacker Nick Barnett, who was the Packers' overall draft choice.
Brett Favre went 15-28 for 132 yards including a 14-yard TD strike to Robert Ferguson. Favre surpassed Fran Tarkenton for Fourth Place on the all-time completions list with 3,692.
Pack Can't Stop Moss, Culpepper
Daunte Culpepper went 10 of 21 for 121 yards and a pair of scores while suffering zero interceptions as the Vikings topped the Packers 30-25. Randy Moss led the Vikings' receiving attack, catching 9 passes for 150 yards and collecting a 16.7 yard average and one score.
The Vikings mounted a surprising 17-3 lead going in at halftime, and quickly added another to open the second half. The Pack answered back, driving 78 yards on 11 plays for a touchdown, capped by Ahman Green's 8-yard sprint. The two-point conversion was good, and the Packers trailed 27-11.
The Vikings retaliated with a field goal, making the score 30-11. The Packers refused to quit, and added two more late scores on the legs of Green and the arm of Favre, and notched what would be the game's final score, 30-25.
