    Week 8:Vikings(42) @ Packers(26)

    The Game That Would Never End!

    So many great games in the NFL's history have taken place at Lambeau Field over the years but none as strange as the Week 8 meeting between the Packers and the Vikes.

    The Vikings rolled into Lambeau riding the emotional high of an 7 game winning streak and a 3 and half game lead in the NFC North. But the events which were about to take place, no one or no team could be prepared for.

    Due to freezing temperatures, midway through the 2nd period with the Vikings up by one score, all electricity was lost at Lambeau, causing loss of all scores,stats, etc etc. After talking to both coaches, the game was restarted.
    The freezing temps. continued to reak havoc on the game elctronics has this same thing happened three more times in the mid to late 2nd quarter, all of which the Vikes were ahead. The two teams decided to head to the locker rooms while the field engineers tried to get everything staright. After a lengthy break the teams took the field once more to try and get this game in the books.

    The Vkings run game could only be matched by the awesome passing game of the Packers. Both offenses moved up and down the field at will. At one point in the 3rd qtr. James Jones, WR, Packers had 15 receptions and AP of the Vikes had 200+ yds on the ground when the "Diabolical Ice-Monster" struck again late in the third, with the Vikings up 49-28.

    Coach Sainta of the Vikes offered Cocach Bamboii if he would concede but Coach Bamboi would not give up that easily. Both Coaches agreed to play 1 half of football with the Vikings starting with a 21 point cushion.

    On the Packers first possession Ray Lewis snagged a Rodgers pass over the middle and returned it 34 yards for the TD. Vikes cushion now 28 points.

    Packers answered back with a 14 yd pass to Greg Jennings. But the Vikings were determined on staying undefeated. After a lengthy drive, QB Tavaris Jackson punched it in on a QB sneak up the middle for a 2 yd. TD. Vikes back with a 21 pt cushion with 7mins remaining. The Packers would add one more TD and the Vikes would answer back with 2 AP rushing TDs to close it out.

    Strangest and LONGEST game I have ever been a part of, taking about 3 hours to finally complete.

    Great game Bamboii, your passing attack is special and I am glad I do not have to meet you again this regualar season.
