Quarterback Scott Tolzien’s six-yard TD run has helped the Packers to a 7-3 second-quarter lead over the Vikings in Green Bay on Sunday.

On the score, which came with 5:06 left in the first quarter, Tolzien faked a pass, scrambled, spun and broke the plane for his first NFL rushing score. He punctuated the TD with a “Lambeau Leap.”

Packers tailback Eddie Lacy is off to a strong start for Green Bay. The rookie from Alabama has 49 yards on 11 carries. Tolzien has also done his part with four completions on eight attempts for 63 yards.

The Vikings’ lone points came on a Blair Walsh 36-yard first-quarter field goal. The Vikings started the drive in Green Bay territory after a 57-yard kickoff return by rookie Cordarrelle Patterson, who’s having a wonderful season on special teams.
