Kick returner Keisean Nixon returned a kick 105 yards for a touchdown to get the scoring started for the Packers. Then Darnell Savage had a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown as the Packers routed the Vikings 41-17. The Packers forced a total of four turnovers and had two sacks.

Fantasy Impact:

It was by far the best performance of the season for the Packers' defense and special teams. They are starting to force turnovers which are turning into victories. They will need to continue the hot streak at home against the Lions with a playoff spot on the line.
