But the Packers quickly settled down and Webb and the Vikings never stood a chance. Especially with Peterson not allowed to roam free as he’s done against the Packers in the past.
‘‘The energy level was at an all-time high,’’ Woodson said. ‘‘This week, like last week, we buzzed around. But this week we made the tackles, we didn’t allow (Peterson) to get through the line of scrimmage and get yards after first contact. We just kept putting heat on them. That was the difference.’’
Like they did last week, the Packers got off to a rocky start offensively, going three and out after Harris dropped what looked like a gimme pass. But unlike last week, they didn’t let it continue, scoring on four of their next five drives.
