Vikings At Packers: Green Bay Adds A Field Goal

The Minnesota Vikings went three and out on their first offensive series. . .stop me if you've heard that before. . .and the Green Bay Packers once again turned it into points.

After a couple of Adrian Peterson runs and an incomplete pass, the Packers started on their own 36-yard line. Once again, the Vikings couldn't stay onside, and the Packers took advantage on at least one occasion to keep the drive alive. A play that looked like a touchdown pass to James Jones was negated by a holding penalty on T.J. Lang, and when the Packers couldn't convert on third-and-8, they had to call on their kicker.

Mason Crosby came in to attempt a field goal from 30 yards out, and he got it through by banking it in off of the left upright, just the way they had planned.

The Vikings now trail the Packers 10-0 with 4:07 left in the first quarter as they prepare for their second possession of the game.
