Packers star Aaron Rodgers reacts to Vikings tie, gives injury update

The missed kick also dredged up ghosts of kickers past. You see how it changed the game. It was all downhill from there as the Vikings scored 22 points in the fourth quarter to force overtime.

Gonzalez, 23, is in his second season out of Arizona State and wasn't going to speculate about whether he'd be around when the Browns play the Jets on Thursday night.

Instead, it resulted in the Packers' first tie since 2013 when Matt Flynn was the quarterback: a 26-26 tie against the Vikings.

Amazingly, Packers LB Clay Matthews was flagged for roughing the passer on Cousins to give the Vikings new life on their final drive - and it's the second week in a row Matthews has been guilty of this. After that, it was downhill for Treadwell, who dropped three passes, including one that resulted in an interception that nearly cost Minnesota the game in regulation.

Chiefs 42, Steelers 37 • In Pittsburgh, Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes tied a franchise record with six touchdown passes.

NOTES: According to the National Football League, this is the first time since 1973 that there were two ties in the first two weeks of the season (the Steelers and Browns played to a draw in Week 1).

He said parts of North Carolina had seen storm surges - the bulge of seawater pushed ashore by the hurricane - as high as 10 feet. The White House on Saturday said President Donald Trump had approved making federal funding available in some counties.

After an entire week of "will he, won't he play" concerning Aaron Rodgers, the star quarterback took the field for the Green Bay Packers Sunday against division rival Minnesota Vikings.

Carlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game. Bortles connected with Donte Moncrief, Keelan Cole and Austin Seferian-Jenkins for scores in the first 30 minutes. If they had run it and gotten stuffed there they still could have run it three more times.

"There were times when we could have won it and there were times when the Packers felt like they should have won it", Cousins said.

Gonzalez missed two extra points and two field-goal attempts, including a 52-yard attempt in the final seconds that would have forced overtime. The Lions-Packers game, along with the Eagles-Giants game, each ended a tie in week 2 that year. Newton stayed in the game, throwing a pair of touchdown passes. But two costly penalties - by Lane Taylor and Bryan Bulaga - both took touchdowns off the board.

For NFL teams that opened the 2018 season with a loss, the goal in Week 2 will be avoiding the dreaded 0-2 start. In the Week 1 win over the Bears, a roughing-the-passer call was well deserved as he hit Mitch Trubisky from behind late. Blaine Gabbert threw for 117 yards and a touchdown. In Week 1, it was Cincinnati Bengals safety Shawn Williams being ejected for a hit on the Colts' Andrew Luck. Luck was 21 of 31 for 179 yards and had a TD pass in a 25th consecutive game.
