Vikings At Packers: Green Bay Gets Another Three

It's been a wild start to the third quarter at Lambeau Field, but the Minnesota Vikings still lead the Green Bay Packers by a score of 14-13.

The quarter started with Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby booting the ball out of bounds, giving the Vikings the ball at their own 40-yard line. After a big run by Adrian Peterson put the Vikings into the Green Bay red zone, the Vikings found themselves with 2nd-and-6 from the Green Bay 8-yard line. Christian Ponder rolled out to his right, towards the sideline, and tried to force one in to Michael Jenkins. Unfortunately, the pass was intercepted by safety Morgan Burnett, and the Vikings squandered a huge opportunity to get momentum on their side.

Green Bay took advantage, moving down to the Minnesota 29-yard line, and it appeared that the Packers would go for it on 4th-and-7. However, after the Vikings called a time out, Mike McCarthy sent Crosby out there after all. Crosby, who missed one well to the right from 53 yards out to close out the first half of play, hit one from 46, and the Packers cut the Minnesota lead to one point at 14-13.

Peterson now has 178 yards on 15 carries, just 22 yards away from the third 200+ yard game of his career, and the first since he set the NFL single-game rushing record in his rookie year of 2007.

With 7:47 left in the third quarter at Lambeau, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Green Bay Packers by a score of 14-13.
