Aaron Rodgers had some competition from fearless Christian Ponder. The defending champion Packers still kept their cool.

Rodgers kept Green Bay unbeaten with three touchdowns wholesale jerseys from china and 335 yards passing, holding off the plucky Ponder in the rookie's first start to defeat the Minnesota Vikings, 33-27 on Sunday.

Rodgers completed his first 13 passes and finished 24-for-30cheap nhl jerseys. Ponder was picked off twice in the third quarter by Charles Woodson, who almost grabbed a couple of more interceptions, but Ponder kept the Vikings in it the whole game after a 71-yard completion on his first play.

Adrian Peterson rushed 24 times for 175 yards and a touchdown nba jerseys cheap for the Vikings (1-6), but James Starks put the game away with two big gains for first downs before the 2-minute warning and finished with 75 yards on 13 carries.

Mason Crosby kicked four NFL Jerseys Cheap field goals for the Packers (7-0), including a franchise-record 58-yarder.

This rivalry is still fierce, as evidenced by a couple of skirmishes early in the game.

Vikings defensive end Brian Robison, frustrated by some cheap nfl jerseys unwelcome contact from Packers guard T.J. Lang during one second-quarter play, gave Lang a swift kick to the groin area, a caught-on-camera personal foul that drew a penalty and is likely to bring Robison a fine.

CHICAGO 24, TAMPA BAY 18: Matt Forte ran for 145 yards and a touchdown, and the Bears held on to win the fifth annual NFL regular-season game at Wembley Stadium in England.
