Packers At Vikings: Green Bay Quickly Ties It Up

The Minnesota Vikings are down a lot of bodies on defense this afternoon against the Green Bay Packers, but they're going to have to put up a lot more of a fight than this if they want to have a puncher's chance against the Super Bowl champions.

After a penalty on the kickoff return put the Packers at their own 9-yard line, the Packers made it look far too easy to move down the field. They moved the 91 yards in just nine plays, taking 5:24 off of the clock to do so. The drive concluded with Aaron Rodgers hitting fullback John Kuhn from two yards out for a Green Bay touchdown.

Rodgers was 6-for-6 on the drive for 74 yards, and hasn't even really been harassed by the Vikings' defense thus far. Again, Fred Pagac is going to have to find a way to get some pressure on him.

With 8:34 left in the first quarter, the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers are tied at seven.
