Controversial roughing the passer call gives Vikings new life in Green Bay

But no one wants to watch a football game thinking that a flag will be thrown every time a defender hits a quarterback.

After the game, Matthews was heated. "I've thrown four picks in a game, I've had nights where I've wondered if I should show up at work the next morning with how frustrated I was with myself". I don't' know. You let me know. you tell me. You tell me. Did I put pressure on him? A 2-point conversion tied the game at 29. In the Week 1 win over the Bears, a roughing-the-passer call was well deserved as he hit Mitch Trubisky from behind late. That was negated by the roughing call, despite Matthews avoiding putting all of his weight on the quarterback.

A week after recording his worst fourth-quarter performance of his career by going 0-for-7 against the 49ers, Cousins displayed poise and precision in working his connections to bring Minnesota within striking distance.

"Last week, OK, shame on me". "This week, that's unbelievable". "Obviously, Auburn's got a big game in LSU this weekend, so you know, there's always those big games in college, but it's a little different in the pros where each week there's a good team you're playing against". They'll find fault on me because they're going to agree with the refs. "Hit him with our shoulder and not fall on him?' I know that's the highest penalty that's been being called is roughing the passer but hopefully they figure this thing out".

So, with new life at the Vikings' 40-yard line, Cousins drove Minnesota in the final minute down to the 22. It was not a body-weight penalty, Corrente clarified, though Matthews said he didn't receive an explanation in the moments after the play.

The quarterback isn't sure whether he might follow a similar practice plan ahead of next week's game against the Washington Redskins, though he said he expect to play each week. He led the game-tying drive and positioned Minnesota for the win in overtime, only to see Kai Forbath's replacement, Carlson, squander it twice. "It took so many people to get us down there and I thought it was good for our offense to get there". I don't know what else to do. It's frustrating because Jaire's interception, that's game [over], right? Instead, they go down and score, overtime.
