Packers Vs. Vikings Live Stream: Watch NFL Week 2 Game Online

For the second week in a row, a game came down to pressure put on from Matthews. "I have so many emotions running through as far as what a bad call it was". Did I put pressure on him? And to call it at that point in the game is just unbelievable. Referee Tony Corrente said the call was not related to the new helmet-to-helmet rule. This week, that's unbelievable. They gave me opportunities. "Hit him with our shoulder and not fall on him?' I know that's the highest penalty that's been being called is roughing the passer but hopefully they figure this thing out". You'll be able to watch the game only on FOX6 starting at noon. The guys in the training room do a fantastic job, got me ready to play. I don't know what else to do. It's frustrating because Jaire's interception - I mean that's game, right? "Credit to them because they fought back time and time again. I don't know. I'm trying to bite my tongue, but I obviously don't agree with it".

But Corrente said the new rule didn't play a part in that Matthews play. "It has nothing to do with helmet to helmet. He picked the quarterback up and drove him into the ground".

You be the judge. Cousins showed great command of the offense with a game-tying drive in the fourth quarter and what should have been a game-winning drive in overtime. "If you come in there and they grab around the outside, it's supposed to be called holding but it doesn't happen a lot of times".

The thing is, Matthews was right: The Packers had opportunities to win the game. Crosby drilled the kick, but a well-timed timeout by the Vikings negated the make. Mike McCarthy's playcalling is not the primary story right now because of that call and because of multiple missed field goals from Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson but it also bears mentioning.

Ex-IPCC chairman RK Pachauri to be tried for sexual harassment
A First Information Report or FIR was filed against RK Pachauri by his ex-colleague on February 13, 2015. Pachauri denies the allegations and has said his emails and mobile phone were hacked.

It leaves players like Garrett and Matthews at a loss on how to play the game. Cousins then led a drive that ended with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen followed by a two-point conversion to tie the game. But the bigger outcome of the game is that the roughing penalty has now become as heated of a debate as the catch rule.

And an Aaron Rodgers' injury was a key storyline in both.
