Recap

Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 31 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns on Sunday as the visiting Green Bay Packers routed the Minnesota Vikings 31-3 to complete a season sweep of their NFC North rivals.

The win was the fourth straight for the Packers (7-3), who moved into a first-place tie with the Chicago Bears in the division.

Greg Jennings had seven catches for 152 yards and three touchdowns for the Packers.

Green Bay spotted the Vikings (3-7) a 3-0 lead on a 24-yard field goal by Ryan Longwell midway through the first quarter, but took control with 17 unanswered points to take a 14-point lead into halftime.

Mason Crosby's 42-yard field goal tied the score at 3-3 with 9:44 left in the second quarter before Rodgers capped an eight-play, 80-yard drive with an 11-yard TD pass to Jennings to give the Packers their first lead.

After Tramon Williams picked off a Brett Favre pass, Rodgers capped a six-play, 53-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with 58 seconds left before halftime.

Favre, in what is expected to be the fourth and last game of his career against his former team, completed 17 of 38 passes for 208 yards.

The Packers extended their lead to 24-3 three minutes into the third quarter when Jennings turned a short slant into a 46-yard touchdown. Green Bay capped the scoring on a 22-yard pass from Rodgers to Jennings with 9:42 left to play.

Adrian Peterson had 72 yards rushing on 14 carries for the Vikings. Wide receiver Sidney Rice, making his first appearance of the season for Minnesota, had three receptions for 56 yards.
