Packers At Vikings: Green Bay Moves To Within Four

The Green Bay Packers were moving the ball again, but the Minnesota Vikings slowed them down just enough to keep them out of the end zone and force them to settle for three.

The Packers were at the Vikings' 15-yard line, but Jared Allen's second sack of the day pushed them back six yards to the 21. On third down, Aaron Rodgers thought he had hit an open Randall Cobb over the middle, but the pass bounced off of the rookie's hands to the turf for an incompletion.

Mason Crosby then came in and hit a 39-yard field goal for the Packers, and the lead was cut to 14-10. After the play, a fight erupted on the field, and defensive end Brian Robison was flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. On the kickoff, Crosby put the ball through the end zone, and the Vikings will start out at their own 20.

With 4:55 remaining in the first half, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Green Bay Packers by a score of 14-10.
