playoffs coming up not wanting to play too long before those playoffs start? >> al: green bay would win the division with a tiebreaker, of course, that would be a tie at the end of overtime. from the 42 yard line. rodgers. and he gets hit as he throws. pressure put on up the middle. incomplete, second down. tom johnson disrupted it. >> cris: i tell you, tom johnson has really been something. he's a guy that he's kind of been everywhere, canadian league, arena league, europe league. he keeps making plays inside. a guy that's a little nondescript but always running into the quarterbacks. >> al: vikings missing one of their top d-linemen tonight, linval joseph. second down and ten. four-man rush.
that's incomplete. intended for cobb. 50 seconds now. third and ten. >> cris: much better job that time by kendricks running underneath that middle read. that's probably been the difference in this game, al, is the ability of these inside linebackers to take away those easy inside throws that aaron rodgers loves. you see kendricks dropping right back underneath it. he sees the adjustment by cobb. runs underneath it. forces rodgers to throw it wide and misses it. >> al: he's really taken a beaten. the last two games, sacked 13 times, five tonight. third down and ten. rodgers flushed out. downfield, throws, and not even close. that one is knocked down by munnerlyn. so it's down to this. one play, fourth down. green bay trying to keep its hopes alive.
>> cris: well, we have a lot of mobility. they've been playing those two deep safeties. but aaron rodgers certainly a threat to run in these really clutch situations. see if they keep those two deep safeties back, i think they will. >> al: backing up right now. backing the linebackers up. and rodgers on fourth down. he's going to keep it alive on a pass to richard rodgers. clock keeps on running. they have to scramble to the line. line of scrimmage at the 46. does he spike it here? no. outside. caught. now dovonte adams. 24 second. ball at the 49 yard line. >> cris: don't give up anything. these are interesting strategies
plays. do you want to continue to march it down and have one throw at the end of take all these shots into the end zone in one way, shape or form? >> al: sooner or later. second down and three from the 39 yard line. rodgers. scrambles away. takes the shot deep downfield. and out of the end zone. and that took nine seconds off the clock. you're down to 15. >> cris: they really sort of had the wide receiver screen set up. and i'm not sure if they didn't just ad lib this one a little bit on the fly. runs down the field. it looked to be one of those quick screens that was going to be thrown out. and they had some space to run. but i think aaron made up his mind he was going to take one of those shots down the field.
stayed with him. 15 seconds and third down. to rodgers. and that's going to take us -- unless perry can spike it here, that's going to do it. that's also fourth down. so can rodgers spike it in time? he's going to get one more play. one more miracle attempt. to the end zone. can they do this again? no. holy mackerel. >> cris: wow, what a game. it took every second, but they finally knocked the champs off in this division. >> al: mike zimmer, took him a long time to get a head coaching job. gets the gatorade bath. division champs. they have another game at home in minneapolis before they go to the dome next year. and the seahawks know they go to
know they go to washington. >> cris: i think that was xavier rhodes who went over the top of richard rodgers there. xavier rhode had one of the best games i've seen him have. does he get the play off in time? right there. and he got -- he had richard rodgers down the field after he scrambles. xavier rhode goes over the top and bats that thing down. number 29. >> al: you also had anthony barr right there fronting it. >> cris: there he is right there. >> al: here comes barr and barr is right there, too. >> cris: rodgers sort of backs his way in and just as it was coming into richard rodgers' hands, xavier rhodes knocked it away and saved the day. xavier rhode had a great game. >> al: yes, he did.
covered. now, it's about stopping republicans
from repealing obamacare, and taking on insurance companies to bring down drug prices. i'm not going to let any family be deprived of healthcare. i'm not going to let the republicans rip up obamacare and throw it away. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. welcome to the volkswagen passat post game report. here now bob costas. >> right down to the final play, but finally the minnesota vikings slay their dragon, the green bay packers, at least as
concerned, before they move on to the playoffs. the vikings are the champions of the nfc north. they'll head to washington and the packers will head to the nation's capital. 20-13 the final score. here are your game balls. one will go to everson griffen, the defensive end of the vikings. he had six tackles, a couple of sacks and a forced fumble. defensive back xavier rhodes played a terrific all-around game and included three tackles and an interception and adrian peterson in the course of winning his third career rushing title, carried 19 times for 67 yards and a touchdown. they get the game balls and the honor of speaking with michele. >> adrian, first we got to ask you about your lower back. you went into the locker room, came back out, tried to give it a go. what's going on? >> a back spasm in the lower back. it was awkward. got twisted up on me, hard to get it loosened up. >> not going to be a problem next week? >> not going to be a problem.
to dog it out. i'll be good by next week. >> because you are the division champs for the first time since 2009. what does that mean to you? >> oh, man, it means so much. we beginning of this season talking about winning the nfc north. and this week we was able to realize that opportunity was right there in front of pups to come out here at lambeau and leave with a victory, you know, just give all the glory to god. >> same year that you win your third career rushing title. i saw your dad before the game. he's here, very excited about that. adding that on top, what does it mean? >> it means a lot, you know, when i look back over the past year, two years and i told myself coming into the game, if the season was to end right now before we even played this game, god has been good to me and my family. you know, so to add on, you know, another title, rushing title, you know, i just continue to give him thanks, man. i'm blessed.
>> thank you. >> let's go defense now with everson griffen. two sacks tonight. you knew that this packers offensive line was hobbled, but how were you guys able to be so effective even with the scrambling aaron rodgers? >> it was a group effort. we went out there and we rushed hard. it was just a group -- we just won the game, man. it was a group effort. and we tried hard and we won the game. and i'm excited right now. >> you guys were out there a lot this defense. and to come on the road into lambeau and to knock off the four-time defending division champs, what does it mean? >> it's huge, man. you know, we talked about this day one at training camp. and all our dreams came true. and you know, it was a team win. offense played great, defense played great. and you know, we went out there and fought for four quarters. like adrian said, give all the glory to god. and we went out there and dominated and we won the game. >> congratulations.
hosting seattle. and zavxavier rhode, your first career interception -- first of the season. don't want to take anything away from you. first of the season. couldn't have come at a better time. what were you seeing? >> we practiced all week about rodgers coming out of the pocket. i just covered my guy and i was in the right spot at the right time. >> next week you're at home, you host seattle. they were there earlier this season and really handed it to you guys. why do you think this time can be different? >> because we looked at our flaws and our mistakes we did last time and correct those and come with a better attitude and not make mental errors. >> division champs, how does it sound? >> it sounds really great. this is my first time ever winning it. take it all in and celebrate as a team. >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> bob? >> all right, thanks, very much, michele. here is the schedule for next week.
panthers have finished 15-1 and the cardinals are 13-3 have the byes. seattle will go to minnesota. we'll have that came for you on nbc at 1:00 eastern time on sunday. the packers, the packers will take on washington at 4:40 on sunday and that game will be seen on fox. so let's writebring in tony dungy. who would you least want to face right now if you were coaching a team in the nfc? >> if these minnesota vikings who have to face seattle, seattle is playing red hot, and i just like where they are. their defense, russell wilson, and the fact that they went into minnesota and they won that game earlier in the season. they've got that championship swagger. they're not afraid of going on the road. minnesota will have their hands full. i think we'll have a great game next week. >> let's take a look at how
the nfc. the bye will go to denver. the patriots drop to number two. the prime time game at 8,15 eastern time on saturday. and kansas city will open it up at houston on saturday at 4:35 on abc/espn. okay, what are you looking for in the afc as the playoffs begin over there, tony? >> well, bob, the afc is so wide open. i don't know that i can remember a year where the number one seed, denver, has been beaten by both wild card teams. that just shows you how explosive and exciting this is going to be. pittsburgh and kansas city have great teams. they're both playing good football. and they can go a long way. so i don't know who you peg as the favorite but i like both of the wild card teams, kansas city and pittsburgh. >> of course, they have to play the extra game and they're likely to be on the road throughout.
now let's take a look, as we bring in mike florio, as some of the head coaching spots that are open, and there are several. three that we knew about entering the day. the interim coaches in miami and tennessee plus chip kelly's firing several days ago in philadelphia. but two more spots opened up today with the browns cleaning house and the 49ers firing jim tomsula after one year. what else can we expect in the next coming days? >> the next one is in indianapolis where choech chuck pagano has completed his four-year contract with no extension. he's expected to meet on monday with owner jim irsay. the expectation is pagano will be relieved of his duties. what happened to gm ryan grigson. there's a thought that his future is tied to whoever is next coach is. in 1998 the colts made a run with a kay named nick saban who may be getting restless.
as many believe regarding the future of tom coughlin. some think he'll retire or resign on monday. it's going to be determined on monday when he gets together with ownership. he could stay. it's not a done deal. he could be fired and if he's fired he could xwoechcoaching somewhere else in 2016. sean payton will meet with mickey loomis. and in detroit the fate of coach jim caldwell will be determined by the next gm after that person is hired. finally, in san diego, there are reports that chargers coach mike mccoy is safe. that may be the case. but the first order of business for the chargers is to file a relocation petition to los angeles as soon as tomorrow if they get approval on january 13 to move, mccoy's fate could change. >> a lot of pieces moving around the chess board. again here at lambeau tonight, the final score, the vikings win the nfc north.

(clicks) welcome back to volkswagen passat post game report. we got a lot of heart. come to lambeau. defeat the champions to become the champions. right? right. so we play at sunday at noon at home against seattle. so here's the deal. i will see you on -- no. i will see you on wednesday. be ready to work. hey, hey, hey, hey, there's a much bigger prize out there.
you've earned it. so let's go get this. >> mike zimmer, we've known him a long time. long time assistant coach forever and ever. had a whole bunch of head coaching interviews. really never came close. and then minnesota makes the dead right choice, as it turns out. >> he's like bruce arians, really, a guy that had to wait a long time, but now they see what everybody missed. >> what do you think of the green bay packers? all of a sudden they staggered down the stretch, they got to go to washington. how do you see that shaping up? >> they've got aaron rodgers. you just look at the mayplayoff picture and say who has the quarterbacks. when ben roethlisberger entered the championship race, that felt different to me. russell wilson is playing brilliant football. if you follow the quarterbacks, you can be fairly safe. >> we've got the early game on sunday, the 1:00 eastern time game. we go to minnesota where seattle
blew them out. we've all seen it happen where something happens in the regular season and the reverse happens in postseason. what will be different for the vikings in that game? >> they already played a little differently because of that game. they're getting the ball much quicker out of bridgewater's hand. they've been back to the running game. they're focusing in on what they do really well. what will be interesting about this one, does marshawn lynch play? he's coming back in the building on monday. i'm not sure the seahawks or pete carroll know whether he'll play. >> instead of playing on saturday, they get to play on sunday. be exciting, one more game in minnesota, they didn't think that would happen. >> 1:00, you ready for that? >> we'll be there. i don't know how to do a game in the sunshine, but we'll be there anyway. crazy ending for the regular season. wild one here. 20-13. so our entire gang downstairs and off we go the great white

today democratic presidential candidate, martin o'malley, stumped for support in sioux city. siouxlanders brought two topics to the forefront of the discussion-- immigration and national security. o'malley touched on his belief in comprehensiv e immigration reform. on the topic of national security-- he says america's role in the world surrounds how to confront the new, changing nature of warfare. and, how to combat terrorism without giving up the values that make us american.

"there is some republican
bad issues about a specific religion, which is not an american value. so this kind of issues, we are really concerned," said o'malley supporter, awal said. in the past few days, o'malley found out he did not qualify to be on the ohio primary ballot. republican ted cruz will be campaigning in iowa next week. he's planning to visit 36 counties in six days. one of his stops will take him to dordt college, in sioux center on tuesday, january 5th. he'll speak at the de yager activity center on campus from 6 until 8:30 p.m. democrat hillary clinton plans to be in sioux city on tuesday for a 2:15 event at the orpheum theatre. the event goes until 4 p.m. president obama is reportedly moving ahead with plans to use his executive
