Mike Zimmer on whether the mistakes made so far this season are correctable: "I don't know. I've been telling them we can't start winning until we stop losing and right now we are doing things to beat ourselves with the turnovers and sacks and safeties and penalties on third downs on defense. I'm just not going to deal with it anymore."

Colts put up 15 unanswered points in a first half that's played out in eerily similar fashion to Minnesota's Week 1 loss. The Vikings offense fell apart after a solid opening drive and ended the half in disaster after Kirk Cousins was sacked for a safety in the endzone for a second-straight week and then threw an interception into double coverage on the following drive. It's difficult to discern what's more concerning for this team: its pass blocking or run defense.

INACTIVES: CB Cameron Dantzler (rib), CB Harrison Hand, WR Chad Beebe, DE Eddie Yarbrough, OL Oli Udoh, DT James Lynch.

Vikings right guard Pat Elflein, who was not on Wednesday's injury report, was just placed on injured reserve by the team and will miss the next three games at a minimum with a return possible ahead of Week 5's road game in Seattle. Minnesota's O-line depth takes a hit. Appears Dru Samia would be in line to start Sunday in Indianapolis for Elflein given rookie Ezra Cleveland (back up left guard) wasn't even active last week.

Dalvin Cook reiterated throughout the offseason that he wanted a "reasonable" deal to reflect his worth on/off the field. Does his 5-year, $63 million extension fulfill that? Cook: "I think 1000 percent, all around the situation reflects who Dalvin Cook is and what I bring to the table, and that's why the deal got done."

Rodgers at ease as Packers roll past Vikings 43-34

Aaron Rodgers took full advantage of the young cornerbacks and the empty stadium in Minnesota, beginning his 13th season as Green Bay's starting quarterback by passing for 364 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Packers past the Vikings 43-34 on...

Think the Vikings pass rush missed Danielle Hunter? Minnesota had Aaron Rodgers under pressured on just 7 of his 44 dropbacks and went 18 straight without registering a single pressure. Newly acquired defensive end Yannick Ngakoue did not notch a pressure in his Minnesota debut, per ESPN Stats and Information.

Minnesota's retooled D struggled to pressure Aaron Rodgers without Danielle Hunter (landed 7 pressures on 28 dropbacks) and gave up 271 yards and 22 points in the first half.
