MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Aaron Rodgers began his 13th season as Green Bay’s starting quarterback by passing for 364 yards and four touchdowns as the Packers beat the Vikings 43-34.
Rodgers took full advantage of the young cornerbacks and the empty stadium in Minnesota.
Davante Adams had a career-high, franchise-record-tying 14 catches for 156 yards and two scores. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard each reached the end zone, too, as Green Bay had its way with a renovated Minnesota defense. Dalvin Cook rushed for two touchdowns and two 2-point conversions for the Vikings, who hosted the rival Packers without fans due to COVID-19 protocols.
