Since Brett Favre took over for the injured Don Majkowski in the third game of the 1992 season, the Packers have had Favre or Rodgers for all but nine games.

MINNEAPOLIS - This is 2013 all over - and maybe worse.

Rodgers used his left arm to high-five backup quarterback Brett Hundley as he left the field.

The injury to Rodgers happened in the first half, when Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr tackled him to the ground at the end of an attempted pass.

After being checked out on the sideline, Rodgers was carted to the locker room for further evaluation.

Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers could miss the remainder of the season with a broken collarbone.

Scott Tolzien, Matt Flynn and Seneca Wallace all substituted for Rodgers in 2013.

The Green Bay Packers may have suffered a devastating loss in Week 6. Hundley also threw three picks to Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and a one-handed interception by Harrison Smith.

At 5-1, the Eagles now have the best record in the NFC, but the Packers were not far behind entering Sunday at 4-1. If they do indeed get to the post season, they now very well might not have to worry about Rodgers being there. He'll be asked to keep the Packers alive while Rodgers returns from another broken collarbone.

Hundley's first pass of the game was intercepted by Xavier Rhodes, but he recovered later in the second quarter and was able to step up in the pocket and hit a wide open Davante Adams for a touchdown that tied the game at 7.

"We stayed on course, doing what we do and being aggressive and trying to get turnovers and get the offense back on the field", Rhodes said characterizing the defense after Rodgers' injury. Strong safety Morgan Burnett is out with a hamstring injury, as are both starting cornerbacks Davon House (quadriceps) and Kevin King (concussion). It was the first time all season that Bulaga and Bakhtiari had played together. Entering Week 6, they had the second-highest dropback percentage in the National Football League at 71 percent, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Playing without Sam Bradford and Stephon Diggs didn't stop the Vikings from beating the Packers by two scores.
