"Yeah, from the first throw today I was in a different headspace", Rodgers said. What are my emotions?
"Any time you're at the forefront of a revolution in this league - what they do with their seven- and eight-up looks that they started in Cincinnati - that says a lot about the type of coach you are", Rodgers said last November.

David Johnson rushed for 95 yards and scored three touchdowns, and Arizona kicker Chandler Catanzaro nailed a 43-yard field goal as time expired to lift the struggling Cardinals to a 34-31 road win over the Seattle Seahawks. WR Stefon Diggs had nine catches for career-high 182 yards and TD last time out against Packers. The calf is feeling better. "Stats and numbers don't mean anything, especially when you lose".

Peterson did not practice at midweek after the running back said he had a "couple of nicks" for which he needed treatment following his first game in three months. He reeled in 12 receptions for 202 yards and two scores, including a huge 71-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
"We're just taking care of the ball, getting in a rhythm, feeding off of each other's energy", Adams said. The only way the Minnesota rush got home was with creative "Green Dog" blitzes as Rodgers called them, delayed blitzes by linebackers.

"I've been saying ever since I got here, if we're clicking on all cylinders and we put it in our minds we can accomplish something, I don't feel like anybody can stop us", Cook said.
Meanwhile, Minnesota joined the 1993 New Orleans Saints, 2003 Vikings, 2009 Denver Broncos and New York Giants, and 2015 Atlanta Falcons as teams since 1990 to start a season 5-0 and not make the playoffs.
