Vikings At Packers: James Starks Gives Green Bay Lead

The Minnesota Vikings managed to force a turnover against the Green Bay Packers, but couldn't take advantage of it, and as a result gave Green Bay the ability to take the lead once again.

After rookie safety Harrison Smith recorded his second interception of the season on a deep throw by Aaron Rodgers, the Vikings started out at the Green Bay 6-yard line. Unfortunately, they went three-and-out once again, and the Packers started the ensuing drive at midfield.

The Packers wasted little time getting to the end zone after that, as they took just four plays to move 51 yards. The drive concluded with a 22-yard touchdown run by James Starks to make the score 20-14. The run by Starks was just Green Bay's third rushing touchdown of the season.

With 2:12 remaining in the third quarter at Lambeau Field, the Minnesota Vikings now trail the Green Bay Packers by a score of 20-14.
