Aaron Rodgers has the Green Bay Packers rolling, even without three of his best receivers.
There’s a powerful running game on his side now, as if Rodgers needed any more help.
Ignoring the injuries around him, Rodgers picked apart what’s left of Minnesota’s depleted defense by throwing two first-half touchdown passes to Jordy Nelson and guiding the Packers to a 44-31 victory Sunday night.
Missing Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley, Rodgers finished 24 for 29 for 285 yards to help the Packers (5-2) stay in first place in the NFC North.
Christian Ponder’s encore went poorly for the Vikings (1-6), who sent out a different starting quarterback for the third straight week.
Adrian Peterson gained a quiet 60 yards on 13 carries, Greg Jennings had just one catch against his old team and the Vikings offense counted only three plays in the third quarter as the Packers pulled away in their final game at the Metrodome, now known as Mall of America Field.
