Packers RB James StarksMINNEAPOLIS–The Packers improved their record to 5-2 and maintained their hold on first place in the NFC North with a 44-31 win over the Vikings on Sunday night.

Leading 31-17 after three quarters, James Starks roared 25 yards up the middle on the second play of the fourth quarter, and the rout was on.

The Packers defense then pitched a three-and-out at the Vikings, and Aaron Rodgers erased any lingering doubt. He completed a 27-yard strike to Jarrett Boykin in a drive that began emptying the seats at the Metrodome, which was hosting its final Packers-Vikings game. The Packers eventually settled for a 20-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that gave the visitors a 41-17 lead with 6:10 to play.

Minnesota scored a touchdown with 4:42 to play and then unsuccessfully attempted an onside kick on the ensuing kickoff, leaving the Packers to kill the remaining time and turn their thoughts to next week’s game against the visiting Chicago Bears.

Crosby tacked on a 45-yard field goal with 2:53 to play.

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder scored on a 19-yard run to cut the Packers’ lead to 44-31 with 1:24 to play.

The Packers recovered the onside kick.

Rodgers threw for 285 yards, two touchdowns and a 130.6 passer rating. Lacy led all rushers with 94 yards. The Packers held Adrian Peterson to 60 yards rushing.
