Packers Daily Links: Robison Apologizes for Kicking Lang in Groin

"Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison issued an apology on Twitter to Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang after Robison kicked Lang in the groin during the game on Sunday," according to an Associated Press report. In an interview, Lang called Robison's actions "cowardly."

More on the incident between T.J. Lang and Brian Robison comes from ESPNMilwaukee.com, Green Bay Press-Gazette and JSOnline.

Kicker Mason Crosby booted a 58-yard field goal on Sunday, which was a Packer record. "After Aaron Rodgers was sacked late in the third quarter on Sunday, the Packers were back at the Minnesota 40-yard line, seemingly out of field-goal range, but McCarthy trusted his fourth-year kicker and immediately sent him out to try a franchise-record 58-yard field goal," writes Mike Spofford of the Packers official website. Crosby is a perfect 14 of 14 on the season and has made 21 straight regular season field goals dating back to last year.

Cornerback Charles Woodson notched two interceptions on Vikings rookie quarterback Christain Ponder on Sunday. "Teammates all agree that Woodson's bound to strike," writes Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "They've come to expect it. By the third quarter, Woodson had a feel for how the Vikings receivers were running their routes. His confidence grew. After a pair of touchdown passes by Aaron Rodgers put rookie quarterback Christian Ponder and the Vikings in a 27-17 hole, Woodson delivered." It was the sixth multiple-interception game of Woodson's Packers career.

More on Charles Woodson somes from the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Packers official website, Packer Report (subscription required) and Fox Sports Wisconsin and ESPNMilwaukee.com.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers continues to play at a near unconscious level. Tom Oates of the Wisconsin State Journal makes a valid point when he writes, "If that story is getting old, it's because it has played out the same way in every game this season. The Packers suffer a breakdown in one area or another, but Rodgers is always there to bail them out." Rodgers has had a passer rating over 110 in every game this season, which is nearly unheard of in NFL history.

More on Aaron Rodgers comes from the Journal Sentinel and Fox Sports Wisconsin.

Wide receiver Greg Jennings injured his hand in Sunday's win. "The Packers have a bye next week, which will definitely aid Jennings' chance of playing against San Diego Nov.?6," writes Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "There's always a chance that Jennings could have fractured the hand, but until X-rays are taken, nobody knows for sure." Even a broken hand probably wouldn't keep Jennings out for the season, but a few weeks is a possibility.

More on Greg Jennings' injury comes from ESPNMilwaukee.com.

Safety Nick Collins spoke about his neck injury to the Press-Gazette and how it may impact his career. “Hopefully, things work out, and I’ll be back for next season," Collins is quoted as saying. "At the same time, if the doctors tell me I can’t play, that’s what it is. Right now, we’re very upbeat and feel we have a great chance of coming back.” I suppose that's as positive a report as you can possibly get with such a serious injury like that.

Running back James Starks and his blocking unit did a nice job icing the victory late in the fourth quarter. "The Packers were able to do that because Starks ended up carrying six times for 55 yards on the victory-clinching drive, including runs of 15, 20 and 13 yards," writes Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com. Prior to that point, the Packers run game was nothing special. But they played their best even when the Vikings knew the Packers would run the ball.

More on the Packers running out the clock at the end of the game comes from the Journal Sentinel's Insider section and Packer Report (sub required).

Rookie Randall Cobb had a tough day at work with a muffed punt and a dropped pass but helped make up for it with a nice punt return later. "After the Packers took a 20-17 lead on Aaron Rodgers’ 79-yard touchdown to Greg Jennings and the Green Bay defense forced a three-and-out, Cobb returned Chris Kluwe’s 49-yard punt 42 yards to the Minnesota 32-yard line," writes Jason Wilde. "It then took Rodgers and the offense four plays to push the lead to 27-17 on a Jermichael Finley touchdown catch."

More on Randall Cobb comes from the Press-Gazette.

Marshall Newhouse wasn't perfect, but all things considered, put together a solid showing against Vikings defensive end Jared Allen. "After the first sack, the Packers coaches started giving Newhouse more help," writes Jason Wilde. "On one memorable play, tight end Andrew Quarless pancaked Allen with Newhouse, then got open for a 21-yard gain."

General game reports come from the Associated Press, Journal Sentinel, Press-Gazette, ESPN.com and ESPNMilwaukee.com.

The defense had a difficult time containing Adrian Peterson.

Greg Jennings' 79-yard touchdown was impressive.

The Journal Sentinel has video, interviews, the play of the game and replay.

The Press-Gazette has video and analysis of statistics and some ups and downs.

Grades are handed out at the Wisconsin State Journal.

The defense is scrutinized at the Packers official website.

A little food for thought over the bye week. So far 3 out of 7 wins have come against teams with winning records (New Orleans, Atlanta and Chicago). 7 out of the next 9 games will be played against teams that have winning records today (San Diego, Tampa Bay, Detriot twice, Giants, Oakland, and Chicago). It's nice that San Diego comes after the bye.

Jennings had a least one catch after the injury, so I would think he'll be ready to go at SD.

Any word on Alex Green?

Kregg Lumpkin sighting in London. Meh?

Ways I've seen Rodgers playing level described so far: Unconscious; Inhuman; Other-worldly; Unstoppable.

I bet if Rodgers played against a team of 11 cornerbacks defending his 4 receivers, he would still burn them.e.

"Rogers and Da Pack versus the entire the celestial horde of holy andgels. Joe?"
"Would dat be da cherubim or da seraphim, Mike?"
"Cherubim AND seraphim, Joe."
"Oh, I was thinking seraphim only. Rogers 72, Cherubim and seraphim 14."
"14?"

Classic.

I was surprised Robison was not ejected. The ref was right there while the guy had his foot in the air waving it around trying to decide whether to kick or not. It could not have been more deliberate.

Green is out for the year, needs knee surgery... absolutely terrible, he has/had a chance to play significantly later this year and possibly start next year.. best wishes AG20

$20,000 fine for Robison.
