Allowing 210 yards rushing to an opposing back usually is a sure path to defeat in the NFL. And Minnesota's amazing Adrian Peterson hung that number on the Packers on Sunday. Yet Green Bay walked off with a 23-14 victory. The stark contrast of quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers (pictured) and Christian Ponder is a big reason. Ponder completed less than half his passes (12 of 25) while connecting more than once with only two receivers. Rodgers, meanwhile, was 27 of 35 passing and had seven receivers with multiple catches. The Viking put too much burden on Peterson and wound up scoreless after halftime. The Packers shared the load and were stronger at the end.
