OK, as it turns out, having a quarterback helps.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is carving up the Vikings, helping the Packers to a 17-3 halftime lead in their Wild Card playoff game.
Rodgers is 14-of-18 for 205 yards, with the touchdowns coming on short runs that are almost mocking the Vikings.
Vikings quarterback Joe Webb, on the other hand, is struggling a bit, with six (6) net passing yards at the break. There was some optimism early about Webb being able to add a mobile dimension to the Vikings’ powerful run game, but it hasn’t shown since the opening drive. In fact, his passes look downright Tebow-nian, ending the half on a one-hopper.
The Vikings had a chance to keep this one close in a cold-weather game, but with Rodgers heating up, it looks like an early night for the Packers.
