Aaron Rodgers picks apart Vikings' rebuilt defense in 43-34 Packers victory

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (19) hauled in a touchdown pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) as Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander (23) tried to defend in the fourth quarter.

Since the Vikings thumped a 23-year-old Brett Favre and denied the upstart Packers a playoff berth in the 1992 season finale, the buildings on the corner of Chicago Ave. and S. 4th Street have been the site of more harrowing experiences than two Green Bay MVP quarterbacks would care to count.

Favre won four of his last five games against the Vikings in the Metrodome, breaking Dan Marino's all-time passing TD record in 2007 but went 6-10 in the building as the Packers QB.

Aaron Rodgers feasted on feeble Vikings defenses during the Metrodome's final years, and won twice in the Vikings' two years at TCF Bank Stadium. But his first three trips to U.S. Bank Stadium included three losses - none in which he threw for more than 216 yards - and one broken collarbone.
