Pro move: Vikings’ Adam Thielen used ‘late hadns’ to snare tying TD pass at Green Bay

Vikings film review: Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs state case vs. Packers for NFL's best duo

Jaire Alexander didn’t have much of a chance without risking pass interference. The Packers rookie cornerback chased Vikings receiver Adam Thielen down the sideline, turning his head only when it was too late. Thielen ran an out-and-up pattern as Alexander trailed him. It was first down with 36 seconds left and the Vikings needed eight points to force a tie and overtime. To not give away the impending 22-yard touchdown catch, Thielen kept his hands low until the last possible moment — a trick of the receiver trade perfected from legends like Randy Moss to Larry Fitzgerald. “For me, it...

Packers proved they belong in elite company despite Week 2 tie with Vikings

Green Bay should have beaten the Vikings, but there’s plenty of good to take away from the bizarre 29-29 game at Lambeau. The Green Bay Packers took the Minnesota Vikings’ best punch and stayed upright. Kirk Cousins played his best game as a pro in a big spot. It took an act of God for Adam Thielen to catch what turned out to be the game-tying touchdown, plus an act of ineptitude to set it up. Green Bay withstood the best that the NFC’s best had to offer without playing their own best. There was the wonky officiating (a generous description). A Mason Crosby missed field goal could...
