Vikings take halftime lead in Green Bay

Jamarca Sanford, Jarrett Boykin AP

In surely what must be one of their best halves of the season, the Vikings lead the Packers 13-7 after two quarters in Green Bay.

Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson had a strong first half, rushing for 72 yards on 14 carries. His one-yard TD run in the final minute of the first quarter gave 2-8 Minnesota the lead.

The Vikings also got a good first two quarters from quarterback Christian Ponder, who completed 11-of-14 passes for 127 yards and did not commit a turnover.

The Packers scored the game’s first points on a six-yard TD run by backup quarterback Scott Tolzien, who’s making his second straight start in place of Aaron Rodgers. However, Tolzien’s passing hasn’t been as sharp this week relative to his other appearances for Green Bay. He’s completed just 7-of-15 passes for 98 yards.

Packers running back Eddie Lacy had a productive first half, rushing for 62 yards on 13 carries.

    Terrible call on the personal foul penalty. Might as well play touch football.

    Packers suck WAY more than the Vikings….we have no QB also but a much better supporting team. Lombardi Losers cry as they realize they are nothing more than a one man team….

    I’ll admit it. As a Packer fan I’m spoiled. Years of Favre and Rodgers has made me forget the 80s of my childhood.

    I hope Rodgers makes it back for the Detroit game. It may not make a difference if the Packers lose this game.

    “We’ll keep Tolzien over that noodle arm Ponder”
