Packers and Vikings Play to 26-26 Draw 

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wis.)  --  Two NFC North rivals battled in freezing cold tempatures at Lambeau Field on Sunday, but neither team got to feel the satisfaction of a hard-fought victory.

Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw for 218 yards as the Green Bay Packers came back from a 16-point deficit to force overtime against the Minnesota Vikings.  Both teams were only able to muster field goals in the extra period, resulting in a rare 26-26 tie.

"It's an empty feeling. You go out there and didn't lose the game," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "But you feel like you didn't accomplish what you set out to do."

The Vikings (2-8-1) opened up a 23-7 lead in the fourth quarter before Flynn and the Packers came storming back to tie the game at 23.

Mason Crosby and Blair Walsh traded field goals in overtime, but neither team provided the score that would end the game.

"I view it as a loss, personally. We gave up a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter," Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said.

It was the first tie in the NFL since the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers played to a stalemate last season.

NFL Preview: Buccaneers (4-5) @ Packers (9-0) 

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) will travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers (9-0) on Sunday.

Tampa Bay comes into the game having lost three in a row trying to get their 2011 season back on track and contend for a playoff spot.

The Packers are looking to extend their winning streak to 10 and continue their best season start since 1962.

"Our goal is to win the division and get a home playoff game, but you can't help but be excited that you're (9-0) and in the prospects of going (10-0) this weekend," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told ESPN Radio when asked about running the table in 2011.

The Packers are thinking big-picture and would trade a perfect season for back-to-back Super Bowl rings.

Kickoff is set for 1 PM Eastern Time.
