DE Jared Allen entered tonight’s game having tallied at least a half-sack in 10 consecutive games. And Allen will leave the game having extended his streak to 11 staright games.
Allen recorded a sack of Aaron Rodgers on Green Bay’s first offensive play of Monday night’s game at Lambeau Field, but eventually that sack was taken away and categorized as a tackle for loss. In the 2nd quarter, though, Allen got to Rodgers again and tallied another sack.
Allen now has 13.5 sacks for the season, which leads the NFL. He also has 13.0 career sacks against the Packers, the most against any opponent in the NFL. He recorded a career-high 4.5 sacks against the Packers on 10/5/09, the 2nd-most sacks in a game in team history and a Vikings single-game record versus the Packers.
