On the way to a 23-14 Minnesota Vikings loss, tight end Kyle Rudolph committed the ultimate act of Lambeau Field sacrilege. After catching a touchdown pass from Christian Ponder in the second half, Rudolph checked out the wall where Green Bay Packers players traditionally do the Lambeau Leap. He spotted some Vikings fans -- who gave them tickets? -- and jumped into their waiting arms.
SACRE BLEU! How dare a Viking sully the sacred walls of Lambeau Field? I don't know if anyone in the stands cursed Rudolph, but they did lose despite a 210-yard performance by Adrian Peterson. The Packers still managed to shut out the Vikings in the second half. With Green Bay's win and the Chicago Bears' loss, the Packers now have sole ownership of the NFC North lead.
