NFL: Green Bay 23, Minnesota 14

Dec. 2, 2012 at 4:30 PM

GREEN BAY, Wis., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- James Starks' 22-yard TD run late in the third quarter put Green Bay ahead to stay Sunday and the Packers posted a 23-14 come-from-behind win over Minnesota.

Starks' score was part of a run of 13 unanswered points in the second half that wiped out a 14-10 deficit and put the Packers (8-4) back on the winning track after last week's one-sided loss to the New York Giants.

Aaron Rodgers (27-of-35, one interception) tossed for 286 yards and a touchdown and Mason Crosby kicked three field goals as Green Bay bested NFC Central rival Minnesota for the fifth straight time.

Adrian Peterson amassed 210 yards on 21 carries -- including a career-long 82-yard TD run in the second quarter -- for the Vikings (6-6), who dropped their fourth contest in five outings.

Christian Ponder managed just 12-of-25 passing efficiency for 119 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for Minnesota.
