Green Bay Packers 10, Minnesota Vikings 3 - Vikings Fail To Accept Gift

A drive that should have ended with a Viking interception instead ends with a Green Bay touchdown and the Packers taking the lead.

After getting into the red zone, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers dropped back to pass, fired into the end zone, and hit Vikings’ safety Husain Abdullah. Unfortunately, Abdullah let the ball bounce off his arm and fall incomplete rather than making the interception.

And they paid for it on the next play, as Rodgers found Greg Jennings from 11 yards out for the score and a 10-3 lead for the Packers.

Minnesota will get the ball with 5:14 remaining until halftime.
