GREEN BAY, Wis., Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Blair Walsh booted a 35-yard field goal with 3:49 left in overtime Sunday and the Minnesota Vikings held on to force a 26-26 tie with Green Bay.

Walsh's kick answered a 20-yard field goal earlier in the overtime by the Packers' Mason Crosby.

Christian Ponder completed 21-of-30 passes for 233 yards with a touchdown for the Vikings (2-8-1), who recorded their first tie since 1978 against the Packers.

Adrian Peterson racked up 146 rushing yards and a score on 32 carries.

Matt Flynn led a second-half charge for Green Bay (5-5-1) after taking over from Scott Tolzien in the third quarter with the Packers trailing 23-7.

He rallied them to 17 straight points, going 21-of-36 through the air for 218 yards and a TD pass.

Crosby kicked a score-tying, 27-yard field goal with 46 seconds remaining to force overtime.

The tie was the first in the NFL since a Nov. 11, 2012, game between San Francisco and St. Louis.
