Packers Take Care of Vikings, Move to 7-3: Game Balls
The Packers responded from a slow first quarter to embarrass the Vikings in a 31-3 blowout win Sunday. The offense moved like clockwork, the defense was all over the field, and special teams was once again a positive in the win. The win moves the Packers back into a tie with the Chicago Bears for first place in the NFC North and has momentum on its side entering a huge game against the Falcons next week. Here are five game balls to give out for Sunday’s huge division win.
Dom Capers: This is more like a monthly game ball, but the Packers’ defense has been the best in the league since Week 8 and has allowed just 10 total points in their last three games (3-0). Capers has mixed up schemes, sent different players from all different angles, and still managed to not give up the big play that haunted the Packers at times in 2009. Capers will once again need to bring his “A-game” against the Falcons next week, but it sure looks like the Packers’ defense is up to the task.
