#4 "Rough" go of it: The NFL's new rules emphasis on roughing the passer doubled the amount of such penalties called in Week 1 year-to-year 2017 to 2018.
Cousins guided Minnesota to 22 points in the fourth quarter and led the Vikings downfield to tie the game at 29 with a two-point conversion toss to Stefon Diggs that followed Adam Theilen's 22-yard touchdown with 31 seconds left in the NFC North shootout. I thought I hit him in his waist, chest.
But wait until you hear what this referee had to say about the call when asked about it after the game.
For the second time in the past six meetings between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field, the game has finished in a tie. But frustrating to allow a call - when I felt like I did the right thing - it influenced the game. But the bigger effect of the game is that the roughing penalty has now become as heated of a debate as the catch rule.
"I don't know what to feel after a tie".

"It was basically I was trying to get to the pylon, and it was Kirk's idea to just throw it to the pylon", Thielen said.
Like any other National Football League game, the keys to victory are winning individual matchups - as some say, the matchups within the matchup. So I don't know. I don't know what else to do. Sadly, the game ended in a 29-29 tie after neither team could win the game in overtime and any divisional tiebreaker between the two teams will now rest on the Week 12 head-to-head matchup if they end the regular season with identical records. It was not a body-weight penalty, Corrente clarified, though Matthews said he didn't receive an explanation in the moments after the play.
Corrente, speaking to a pool reporter after the game, said that Matthews had driven Cousins to the ground after lifting him up. Rodgers then hit Davante Adams for a 3-yard pass to give kicker Mason Crosby a chance from 52 yards out with three seconds left.
It leaves players like Garrett and Matthews at a loss on how to play the game.
Clay Matthews Jr. pressured Cousins on the first-down play, hitting the quarterback just after he threw and knocking him to the ground in what appeared to be a legal takedown.
