Scott Tolzien helps get Packers on board before the half

Scott Tolzien AP

It’s been a rocky first trip on NFL waters for Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien, but he’s got his team within a score at the half.

Tolzien drove the Packers 72 yards in 1:14 to set up a Mason Crosby field goal just before the second quarter ended to make the score 10-3 Eagles at Lambeau Field. Tolzien had two other drives that looked like they’d end up in points but he threw an interception in the end zone on one and Crosby missed his second field goal of the game to leave the Packers scoreless until the final seconds of the half.

Tolzien’s interception was a poor throw behind Jordy Nelson that Brandon Boykin returned into Green Bay territory. Alex Henery missed a field goal of his own, however, and the Eagles couldn’t turn it into points. Tolzien is 15-of-23 for 184 yards overall, including a 36-yard gain to Jarrett Boykin that looked like it was not a catch and was somewhat strangely left unchallenged by Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

The Packers have ridden Eddie Lacy hard after Seneca Wallace’s injury, allowing them to hold onto the ball for 20 of the game’s first 30 minutes. The Eagles hit a 55-yard play to DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy’s run well, but there hasn’t been much else going on for the Eagles on offense during their limited opportunities.

    Terrible call by the officials, James Jones had a Touchdown & they call it incomplete. What a joke.

    On a positive note, Aaron Rodgers is really enjoying his free time with Ryan Braun

  5. allday420ap says: Nov 10, 2013 2:56 PM

    unbelievably stupid packer fans think they should get the ball on that kick off?’

    dumbest fans in the league, bar none.

    where are all the haters saying rodgers is a (system) qb?

    Actually it was the correct call. Sorry the refs aren’t bending the rules for the packers today. Maybe when Aaron returns but not today.

    Just me, or are the Vikings wearing Green and Yellow today?

  11. trollsetter says: Nov 10, 2013 3:12 PM

    Bahahahaha, Tolzien. Those 13 world championships sure aren’t helping out now, huh. Better luck next year.

  12. Great Caesar's Ghost says: Nov 10, 2013 3:12 PM

    Foles>Tolzein!

  13. trapshoot says: Nov 10, 2013 3:13 PM

    He’s doing alright everything considered. Kuhn is his back up. Hope that doesn’t happen.

  14. 84smooninlambeaunevergetsold says: Nov 10, 2013 3:14 PM

    Tolzien helps them get on the board, or Crosby just made up for his two shanks?

    Pathetic. Either way, this game is one of the most boring games I’ve ever watched. Seriously, why are football fans being punished with this garbage, not to mention Joe Buck..

    @pack13

    In college ball, you only need one foot inbounds.

    This is the NFL- in the pros they require both feet.

    Glad to know you are as well informed as most Packer fans……..

    refs are not going to let pack lose this game

  19. trinityeagle says: Nov 10, 2013 3:22 PM

    Quick Question:

    How is the Packers simultaneously saying “Hut” and putting a man in motion every time not a false start. That seems blatantly illegal to me, but it isn’t being called, so I am wondering if I am missing something.

  20. allday420ap says: Nov 10, 2013 3:27 PM

    Cooper is showin these pooper fans how bad their team is.

  21. Great Caesar's Ghost says: Nov 10, 2013 3:29 PM

    Eagles look great. Foles is holding down the fort, Vick will be back starting soon for the SB run.

  22. conormacleod says: Nov 10, 2013 3:32 PM

    Exposed!

  23. thepvyharvin says: Nov 10, 2013 3:32 PM

    It really is a satisfying day to watch the Pack get slapped around. We always said it,,,we were always right….without your boy Rodgers you are the worst team in the North. Eat the cake you have been throwing for years…and choke on it

  24. bfrsd says: Nov 10, 2013 3:34 PM

    Gotta love the Vikings fans. Only time you can get excited is when the Packers have injuries.

    You talked all off-season long and you have one of the worst teams in the league without any injuries.

  25. allday420ap says: Nov 10, 2013 3:35 PM

    wow tolzien got swallowed by curry

  26. conormacleod says: Nov 10, 2013 3:39 PM

    Packer coaches might want to rethink having your only backup from the practice squad. You pay your QB $23 mil a year, you better be willing to not make the playoffs if he gets hurt.

  27. myasylum11 says: Nov 10, 2013 3:45 PM

    Packers secondary blows! Might as well replace them too. Cooper is walking all over them at will!

  28. allday420ap says: Nov 10, 2013 3:45 PM

    It was the wrong call. Jones had both feet in, just like Santana Moss had both feet in last Thursday Night & that was wrongly ruled incomplete. Roger Goodell tells the officials to help the Vikings & make calls against the Packers as well.

    And now Jordy Nelson robbed of a Touchdown. If that was an Eagle, it would have been.

  31. gtodriver says: Nov 10, 2013 4:03 PM

    Only a Packer fan could believe that was a catch.

    Even McCarthy knew the call was correct.

    Closer than james jones’ non td but still use your f-ing eyes you jabroni. Ball was clearly rolling under Jodry. Also, refs gave you a gift the challenge before when foles was down.

  33. judsonjr says: Nov 10, 2013 4:07 PM

    I still don’t think the ball hit the ground. It looked like it was rolling, but on his hand.

    I think he caught the ball clean, but would buy if the refs said inconclusive.

  34. gtodriver says: Nov 10, 2013 4:07 PM

    @pack13

    The officials gave you the fumble that wasn’t a fumble.

    Be happy you got the ball. Be pissed at your squad for not playing well enough to cash in.

  35. tutamus says: Nov 10, 2013 4:12 PM

    Must be a pathetic existence as a Vikings fan when all you can do is sit around and hope for bad things to happen to good teams because the team you cheer for won’t ever win anything.

    Sad.

  36. glennsyank13 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:13 PM

    Tolzien’s performance would have been a top 3 for a Vikings QB this year.

  37. shlort says: Nov 10, 2013 4:26 PM

    Bears are going to the Super Bowl after last week. Now, it is probably the Eagles going to the Super Bowl. Hell, the Giants will be going to the Super Bowl after next week.

    At least you tools can be realistic about the situation. The Packers are bad on Offense without their starter, just like every other team in the league.

    The Eagles beating GB today is nothing to celebrate.

    Green Bay is done for this year, but once Rodgers is back, the Packers will probably win every game to get them to 9-7 or 8-8. They won’t make the playoffs, but they have the best team in the NFC North. The rest of you Donkeys will still be cheering for your hapless team to win by default. Remember that. If the Bears or Lions win the division it will be because GB couldn’t put enough guys on the field to win. I’ll translate that for you all. Your teams still stink. lol

    You are missing something. Until the offense is set, the QB can say whatever he wants back there.

    First off… with the way the line has been playing with the injuries and how a 4th round rooking in Bahktiari is playing and the way Jarret Boykins is going on as well as how the devistated line backer unit is ‘trying’ to rally, I still have more than enough faith in TT. TT’s job is to fill the team with talent and he has. We’re down to the 3rd guy in many situations and no team can say they’ve done better.

    Tolzein played well given no first team reps and no comfortably with his wide outs. I see no reason to feel as though Flynn would play better than Tolzein given his past 3 stops. Although I still wish they’d kept Vince Young.

    Lastly to see all the Vikings trolls is laughable. Say you get you wish and the Packers tank because of these injuries, they come back next year healthy with high draft picks… and next year Minnesota is still the worst team in the NFC North. Let’s face it, our loss is not your gain. We got the running back of the future, a devastating 4 wide receiver set when Cobb comes back and high draft picks to address aging Tramon Williams and a lackluster secondary. You can pretend to be happy while trolling the fans here who don’t have any sense, but deep inside we know you know the truth and for all the Vikings posturing, they’re a small dog barking at a big dog on the other side of a fence. And for all the injuries we have, you’re not strong enough to defeat us.

    sounds like someone has chalked up the cheesy 2014 season.

  42. gtodriver says: Nov 10, 2013 5:12 PM

    Newsflash!!!!

    Just learned from all the whiny Packer fans- the Packers are the only team in the nfl playing with backups.

    Real men would admit they lost the last two games to teams that have also had a myriad of injuries.

  43. packerbacker12 says: Nov 10, 2013 11:16 PM

    Wow the Vikings are 2-7 but their fans sure spew crap out of their mouths. Maybe you should be worried about that pathetic group of people you call an NFL team instead of worrying about us.

    Inbreds.
