Referee's Description of the Clay Matthews Roughing Penalty Makes No Sense

Referee's Description of the Clay Matthews Roughing Penalty Makes No Sense

After the Vikings tied the game, Aaron Rodgers set up Mason Crosby for a game-winning 52-yard field goal. While last week's fourth-down hit on Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was late and boneheaded, Sunday's was a good football play.

Rodgers wore a brace on his knee that limited his mobility against the Vikings, but he mostly looked like his usual self, completing 30 of 42 passes for 281 yards. Kirk Cousins, in his Vikings road debut, refusing to back down despite facing 11- and 13-point deficits midway through the third and fourth quarters. The Vikings' defense pulled through on the ensuing dirve, holding Green Bay to a field goal with 2:04 left in regulation. And while the emphasis partly a reaction to Rodgers' broken collarbone a year ago, the Packers own defense was the guiltiest party in Week 1, drawing 3 calls (Nick Perry, Muhammad Wilkerson, Clay Matthews). "I have so many emotions running through as far as what a bad call it was", Matthews said. "I don't know. It's a hard call to call".

"He picked up the quarterback and drove him into the ground", Corrente told a pool reporter. "I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control".

The penalty negated an interception by Jaire Alexander with 1:45 left that would have allowed the Packers to run out the clock.

Ronaldo off the mark with a brace, Costa dismissed for spitting
Cristiano Ronaldo's wait for his first Juventus goal ended on Sunday with the Portuguese netting a brace in a 2-1 win over Sassuolo .

Thielen's partner in crime, Stefon Diggs, caught the two-point conversion right after to tie the game at 29. Operating out of shotgun or pistol formations also bought Rodgers more time.

Thielen had 12 catches for 131 yards for Minnesota (1-0-1), while Diggs had nine catches for 128 yards and two scores.

Kickers miss kicks sometimes, and it's worth noting Carlson's two other missed field goals came from 48 and 49 yards out respectively. "But I think, you know, it's going to be a attractive day Sunday, great weather ... natural grass, a great environment". I got my head across, put my hands down. But missing a 35-yarder from between the hashes is inexcusable. They're gonna say, you know. He was then carted to the locker room after getting to the sideline.
