Vikings beat Packers 20-13 to win NFC North


GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Vikings’ push to be kings of the NFC North for the first time since 2009 finally got rewarded Sunday night as they survived a furious fourth-quarter rally by the Green Bay Packers to win 20-13 and claim the division title.

The Vikings relied on stingy defense to take a 17-point lead into the final quarter, but that group barely had enough left to hold off two-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field. Rodgers heaved two long-­distance throws into the end zone at the end of the game, but one flew beyond the end line, and cornerback Xavier Rhodes knocked down a final Hail Mary as time expired.
