MINNEAPOLIS — Brian Robison was mic’d up for part of the Vikings’ nationally televised game against the Packers on Thursday night in Green Bay, so his reaction to missing Eddie Lacy in the backfield on an 11-yard touchdown run was clearly audible. “Dang it!” the veteran defensive end said as he walked back to the huddle, his team about to go down 35-0 with more than 10 minutes left in the third quarter.
