MINNEAPOLIS – Aaron Rodgers promised one.
It was the Packers of Green Bay were "run the table" – his mantra in 2016 when they were 4-6 and won all the way to the NFC Championship Games.
It seemed a missed opportunity for itself after the Sunday f & # 39; Messachusetts, where the Packers fell to 0-6 on the road and 4-6-1 overall with & # 39; & # 39 loss; 24-17 am in the U.S. Bank Stadium.
"I know I've I play better", he said. "But I will. And we put ourselves in position."
And it started as Rodgers ended his news conference & # 39; after week.
The making of & # 39; & # 39 Mike McCarthy again; nuanced week for the other straight, and forced the Packers and Vikings come to threaten their hopes promptly.
Kirk Cousins recovered from his worst game for Minnesota with & # 39; 342 yards passing and three touchdowns without a turnover, and the Vikings overcame some early gaffes to exceed the Green Bay plant reduced to victory & # 39 ; 24-17 on Sunday night.
The packages quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who grew up in & # 39; Chico, California, is giving $ 1 million to the victims of fighting fires to burn the state of his house.
Before that, however, he acknowledged that even his best can & # 39; not enough to save this season. Yes, have five winnable games while their remaining schedule is linked to the Rams for the easiest in the NFL. But after losing the tiebreaker to the Vikings, they can still miss the playoffs at 9-6-1.
"You & # 39; hurry numbers there," said Rodgers. "I can & # 39; say will not get 8-7-1. Do not think.
"We are at the time when we look to the records. We will require some help from some teams and then we take care of our own business, you know? We will have to find a way to win a game on the road. We are 0-6 road. So we just we get back home, get some rest, watch and then back to Arizona … & # 39; Atlanta back and overcome … then go to Chicago, we will place a number of & # 39; often, de novo … go to New York around Christmas, ħabbathom … and then came twice against Detroit, beat them. Give a little help. "
As was the most & # 39; this season, the games & # 39; Rodgers was not terrible. It just was not accurate as in past seasons. After the game, he deplored the dismissal of & # 39; Davante Adams for what would be a touchdown & # 39; 20 yard fourth & # 39; quarter and bouncing pass at the feet of rookie Equanimeous St. Brown, throw him charged with his capture. Friday at the start of & # 39; Seattle, a key step came third place on the feet & # 39; Marquez Valdes-Scantling on the final possession.
If the Packers lose playoffs, it will be the first time they have done so in & # 39; consecutive year since Rodgers became the starter in 2008. The last year, he missed half the season with a broken klarba. This year, he started every game despite harm week 1 & # 39; m the knee says & # 39; longer a factor.
"That is definitely frustrating," said Rodgers, that single Super Bowl came in the 2010 season. "Obviously, I've a lot more gray beard than you did a few years ago. So I know that football mortality caught with & # 39; everyone, and you never want to lose a season – especially when large ħasst to start season on our prospect. But we will be challenging the next five weeks nqegħdin ourselves in & # 39; position to be in conversation. Then hopefully be enough, and like I always say, you just get to So we have overcome these -ħamsa and see x & # 39; to happen. "
Rodgers made reference to the 2016 season, when the playoffs seemed like a long shot b & # 39; 4-6 record.
The Packers are still looking for the "moment & # 39; galvanizing" Rodgers made reference to 10 days before after a loss at & # 39; Seattle.
"We'll see what we did the last five weeks," said Rodgers. "We stick together in & # 39; these tough times, or we will get caught? I think the leadership is in & # 39; place that we can stay together through & # 39; whatever happens, but these weeks will show it. "
