Packers blow out Vikings

The Green Bay Packers blew out the Minnesota Vikings, 42-10, on Thursday night as Julius Peppers returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown.

Meanwhile, quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdowns and Eddie Lacy rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns.

Jordy Nelson caught a 66-yard touchdown pass.

Playing without quarterback Teddy Bridegwater with a sprained ankle, the Vikings were blown out as Christian Ponder struggled.

"Green Bay outplayed us," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "They were more physical than we were. They did a much better job all night."
