Packers At Vikings: Green Bay Strikes Quickly, Takes Lead

Well, that didn't take long.

On a play that will feature one of the worst blown coverages that you'll ever see, the Vikings allowed Greg Jennings to slip behind the defense, and Aaron Rodgers found him without a purple jersey within 20 yards of him. Jennings did the rest, and the result was a 79-yard touchdown that put the Packers on top for the first time today.

The third quarter has been a torture chamber for the Vikings so far this season, and this one is looking to follow the same pattern, as the Vikings trail for the first time today. The drive took only 51 seconds and two plays for the Packers to complete.

It will be interesting to see how the Vikings respond to this one. It does appear that offensive guard Anthony Herrera is back in the game after a knee injury at the end of the second quarter.

With 14:00 left in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings now trail the Green Bay Packers by a score of 20-17.
