AT LEAST ITS NOT A LOSS

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) _ Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw for 218 yards to help the Packers storm back from a 16-point deficit for a 26-26 tie as the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay could only muster field goals in overtime Sunday.

Mason Crosby hit from 20 yards at 10:28 of the extra period and Blair Walsh connected from 35 with 3:54 left.

Greg Jennings, playing his first game at Lambeau Field as a member of the Vikings (3-8-1), dropped a third-down pass with 2:11 left. The Packers (5-5-1) also stumbled on their next possession.

One last chance for the Vikings went nowhere with 1 second left, and the teams walked off with the first tie in the NFL since the Rams and 49ers ended 24-24 on Nov. 11, 2012.

A QUICK TURN AROUND FOR THE PACKERS AS THEY TRAVEL TO DETROIT TO FACE THE LIONS ON THANKSGIVING DAY. PACKER PREGAME STARTS AT 9:00AM, WITH KICK OFF SET FOR 11:30AM ON NEWSTALK 1310 WIBA AM
