, Wis. -- goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, and the Minnesota Vikings had to settle for a 29-29 tie with the Green Bay Packers after rallying from a late 13-point deficit on Sunday.More Vikings coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 - 7/27/19Rookie Bradbury is central figure to Vikings' overhauled offensive lineVikings depth at cornerback being tested, Hughes still not clearedPlayers to watch at Minnesota Vikings 2019 training campTop Tweets: Vikings WR Diggs makes push for All-NFL Style TeamThe rookie's final attempt went to the right of the uprights, just like his kick from 49 earlier in overtime. Carlson also missed from 48 in the second quarter.Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with five field goals, but his potential game-winner from 52 went wide left as time expired in regulation."It's disappointing when you've got an opportunity to win the football game there at the end and you come up with a tie. It's better than a loss," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.It was the second straight week with a tie in the NFL after the Steelers and Browns played to a draw in their opener.The result at Lambeau Field overshadowed memorable performances from both quarterbacks.Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers played with a brace on his injured left knee and threw for 281 yards and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams .But a mishandled handoff with 5:17 left in overtime cost the Packers a chance at another long field-goal attempt. Rodgers recovered the fumble on second-and-1 at the 37, and he was sacked on third down to push Green Bay back to the 47."Close to an 'L.' Doesn't feel great," Rodgers said about the tie.Minnesota's Kirk Cousins threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns, including three in the fourth quarter. He also threw an interception to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix after the ball bounced off the hands of Laquon Treadwell with 2:13 left.Everything seemed to go the Vikings' way in the fourth, when they rallied from a 20-7 deficit. Until that point, the Packers had put together the kind of complete performance needed to support Rodgers, who got hurt in Green Bay's opening victory against Chicago.Facing double coverage, Adam Thielen still caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Cousins with 31 seconds left on a drive that included a roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. Stefon Diggs caught a 2-point conversion pass to tie it at 29."I don't know where to start, to be honest with you. I have so many emotions running through as far as what a terrible call it was," Matthews said. "At the same time, I don't know what else to do."The penalty negated an interception by Jaire Alexander with 1:45 left that would have allowed the Packers to run out the clock. Referee Tony Corrente said the call was not related to the new helmet-to-helmet rule."He picked up the quarterback and drove him into the ground," Corrente told a pool reporter.Rodgers, who finished 30 of 42, didn't have his typical mobility that allows him to busy time for receivers.But he was able to move around enough to scramble out of trouble on occasion. Operating out of shotgun or pistol formations also bought Rodgers more time.The Packers (1-0-1), though, could have used more touchdowns from the offense.They did get one on special teams after Geronimo Allison blocked a punt that was recovered by Josh Jackson in the end zone for a touchdown.Thielen had 12 catches for 131 yards for Minnesota (1-0-1), while Diggs had nine catches for 128 yards and two scores.JUST FOR KICKERSCarlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game."I think I went out each time and it was a new kick
," Carlson said. "Went out there confident, but something obviously was off and I've got to fix that and help this team."The last attempt from 35 was set up with the ball placed between the hash marks, but Carlson still missed.JUST FOR KICKERS IICrosby almost had six field goals, but his first, successful attempt from 52 at the end of the regulation was erased because the Vikings called timeout right before the snap.QUOTABLE"We're disappointed with the outcome. Had a number of opportunities to come away with the win, but the tie, as they say, it is what is." -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy.INJURIESVikings starting right tackle Rashad Hill had to be helped off the field with a right ankle injury in the third quarter. He was then carted to the locker room after getting to the sideline.UP NEXTVikings: Host the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 23Packers: Visit the Washington Redskins on Sept. 23. ATLANTA (AP) -- Before there was Jared Goff, there was Warren Beatty.Years before Goff or any of today's Rams were born, Beatty had been carried off on his teammates' shoulders to celebrate a Rams title that only Hollywood could dream up.He played quarterback Joe Pendleton in the 1978 Academy Award nominated movie "Heaven Can Wait." At the end, he leads LA to an otherworldly Super Bowl victory over the Steelers.It all happened during a time when the real-life Rams, with Joe Namath, Rosey Grier and the rest of the Fearsome Foursome, embodied everything about Hollywood cool, even if the notion of them winning the Super Bowl felt like something that could only happen in the movies.It was a time when the Steelers were winning all the Super Bowls and the Cowboys were becoming America's Team.But, Beatty told The Associated Press, "there was no reason not to make the movie about the Rams.""They were fun. It was fun," Beatty said. "The only word I can come up with is, 'fun.'"Funny, too.In "Heaven Can Wait," Beatty's character, Pendleton, is snatched away to heaven before his time by an overzealous escort (Buck Henry). After realizing the mistake, the escort and his boss

, Mr. Jordan (James Mason), try to place the quarterback back into his original body, only to discover he has been cremated. The search for a substitute body ensues, and the result is a touching love story (with Julie Christie) punctuated by a steady stream of laughs, most courtesy of Pendleton's hysterical, cheating wife (Dyan Cannon) and her bumbling, ridiculous lover (Charles Grodin).In the 70s, there was no bigger star in Hollywood than Beatty, who had burst onto the scene in "Splendor in the Grass" in the '60s, produced and starred in "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Shampoo," and seen his films nominated for more than a dozen Academy Awards.Given his star power, Beatty had no trouble landing dozens of NFL players to play extras in the football scenes. In one, Fearsome Foursome member Deacon Jones repeatedly tees off on Pendleton, who stands underneath a center unwilling to deliver him the ball.Beatty said he didn't use a stand-in for that one. And though he had one on call for the scene at the end when he leads the Rams to their Super Bowl victory , he didn't use him there, either.That scene was shot during halftime of an actual Rams preseason game at the LA Coliseum. They had limited time to run 14 plays."I told him, 'I'm going to run one play, maybe it'll be good, but be ready to come in,'" Beatty said. "I completed the pass and thought, 'Gee, it worked.' Got some adrenaline out of that. I told him, "I'll do the second play, then be ready.' That worked
, too. Then the third play worked. I ended up doing all 14 plays. And I got to do what I'd always wanted to do in junior high, which was to be the quarterback instead of the center."A recently retired Rams running back, Les Josephson, served as an extra, and as technical adviser for the football scenes. He said the plays Beatty ran during the Super Bowl scene came straight from the Rams playbook."He could throw the ball pretty well," Josephson said. "He was a pretty good athlete growing up."But Beatty said he turned down a few scholarship offers, and gave up playing center (and linebacker) for acting."I went to New York and started getting serious about what you'd say was the stuff taught by Head Coach Stanislavsky," he said. (Konstantin Stanislavsky is the forefather of method acting.)Beatty also directed and produced the movie, which won two Oscars and got nominated for seven others, including picture, actor and supporting actor and actress.Had he been more persuasive with his good buddy, Muhammad Ali, this remake of the 1941 classic "Here Comes Mr. Jordan," would've been about boxing, same as the original."I wanted to do a movie with Ali, and we went back and forth, we had a lot of fun talking about it," Beatty said. "But I finally realized he wasn't about to put boxing aside to do a movie, and I said, 'Ali, if you don't do it, I'm going to change it to a football player and do it myself.'"(Quick side story: Beatty said Ali liked to throw down the gauntlet at the actor: Let's go out to lunch, he challenged Beatty, and see who more people recognize.)Sticking with a football theme turned out to be a good choice.And the movie wound up being prescient in more ways than one.About a year after it came out

, the Rams, behind a backup quarterback, Vince Ferragamo, made a magical run that ended in the franchise's first Super Bowl -- against the Steelers, no less, just like in the movie. Only LA lost that one, 31-19.Fifteen years later, the Rams moved to St. Louis and lost their LA connection for two decades.But now they're back, Beatty's a fan -- and there's a delicious irony developing.At the end of "Heaven Can Wait," the Rams are in the Super Bowl and their quarterback is knocked senseless by a vicious hit.Pendleton, in need of another, more-permanent body to inhabit, takes over and, a few minutes later, scoops up a fumble and runs it in for the winning touchdown.In the movie, the quarterback wears No. 16 on that classic, blue-and-yellow Rams home jersey . And Joe Pendleton becomes Tom Jarrett.In real life, a guy named Jared -- Jared Goff -- will wear the blue-and-yellow No. 16 for the Rams on Sunday.Will LA win again? Now, there's a sequel Hollywood would love.
