Packers Sink Vikings 42-10

Packers Sink Vikings 42-10

Tom Lynn /Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wis.) -- Aaron Rodgers continued to give the Green Bay Packer fans another reason to relax.Rodgers completed 12 of 17 passes for 156 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Packers past the Minnesota Vikings 42-10 Thursday night.After a four-and-out on their first drive of the game, the Packers scored on consecutive offensive possessions on two Rodgers' touchdown passes, the second being a 66-yard bomb to Jordy Nelson.This game was good for anybody wearing green: Packers running back Eddie Lacy rushed for over 100 yards for the first time this season and two touchdowns in the win.The Green Bay defense did its part, turning the Vikings over three times, one of them being a 49-yard pick-six to linebacker Julius Peppers.After the Packers lost two out of their first three games of the season, the Green Bay fans were getting restless. That prompted Rodgers to tell the Packer fans to "relax" during his weekly radio show on ESPN Milwaukee. Since then, the Packers have blown out both the Chicago Bears and now the Vikings.Christian Ponder, who started in place of the injured Teddy Bridgewater, completed 22 of 44 passes for 144 yards and two interceptions, while rushing for one touchdown.

Packers to Induct Favre into Hall of Fame, Retire Jersey in 2015

Packers to Induct Favre into Hall of Fame, Retire Jersey in 2015

Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wisc.) -- Brett Favre's relationship with the team he spent the majority of his career playing for is apparently just fine. Both the quarterback and the Green Bay Packers announced on Sunday that Favre will be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame and have his number 4 jersey retired during the 2015 season.

The joint announcement originally came from Favre's website on Sunday afternoon.

"It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers. Now to have my name placed among others such as Starr, Hornung, Kramer, Taylor, Lambeau, Nitschke, Lombardi, Davis, White and Hutson is a special honor that I share with all of my teammates and coaches, and that would not have been possible but for the foresight of Ron Wolf, the greatest GM in the history of the NFL," Favre said in the statement.

Green Bay will make an official announcement at 1:30 p.m. on Monday with Favre participating via telephone. Packers Hall of Fame Inc. president Perry Kidder, Packers president Mark Murphy and former Packers president Bob Harlan will all take part.

Favre joined the Packers on Feb. 11, 1992 after being traded by the Atlanta Falcons who drafted him. He led Green Bay to two Super Bowl appearances, winning Super Bowl XXXI, and also won three MVP awards for 1992-2008. Favre announced his retirement that summer but decided he wanted to return and was eventually traded to the New York Jets where he played one season before finishing his career in Minnesota, playing two more years.

Packers Reward GM Ted Thompson with Contract Extension

Packers Reward GM Ted Thompson with Contract Extension

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wisc.) -- One of the best general managers in the NFL is sticking around a little longer as the Green Bay Packers are rewarding Ted Thompson with a contract extension.

Thompson's new deal is being called "a multi-year contract extension" and he will remain in charge of the football operations. His original deal was set to expire after the 2016 season.

"The more you think about it, the more you think how nuts are you that you'd walk away from something like this," Thompson said. "It's important to me. It's not my family, but I've got a lot of really good friends here and co-workers that I enjoy coming to work with every day."

Thompson is entering his 10th season as the Packers general manager, and the team has gone 86-57-1 in the regular season and 6-5 in the postseason. They also won the Super Bowl XLV.

Thompson's first draft pick came in 2004 when he selected quarterback Aaron Rodgers 24th overall.

Hey, Jordy's so consistent and he shows up each and every day, performs at a very high level consistently and he's the ultimate pro."

The 29-year-old Nelson his spent his entire career with the Packers, and is entering his seventh season with the team.
