By the numbers: Sad stats from Vikings-Packers

Well, every Vikings post-game we do a little segment about some telling numbers about the game.

Sunday night may have been one of the most statistically terrible performances in recent memory, specifically with these three numbers.


The amount of time Aaron Rodgers and the Packers held the ball, more than doubling up the Vikings in possession.


Green Bay scored on their first eight drives of the game. Their ninth and final drive was the only one they didn't put up points, only because they were busy taking a knee to end the game. The Packers did not punt once the entire night.


Number of times the Packers converted third downs, missing on just five conversions. They began the game by converting their first six third downs, and head coach Leslie Frazier made third downs the main topic of conversation at his postgame press conference.
