The Packers don’t have running backs with the pedigree of Adrian Peterson.
But they’re using theirs with effectively, nonetheless.
The Packers took a 7-3 lead on a replay-reviewed touchdown run by DuJuan Harris.
Harris, cut earlier this year by the Jaguars, has 31 yards on eight carries, and he and signed-off-the-street Ryan Grant have combined for 51 receiving yards. The Vikings pass rush just stopped the next Packers drive, and it’s shaping up as a night when the running games could determine the game.
The Vikings keep avoiding disaster on Joe Webb throwaway attempts, as the backup quarterback keeps offering up balls that will eventually be picked off.
