Packers vs. Panthers Halftime Score Update: The Good, Bad and Ugly As Green Bay Leads 28-3

New, comments

The Packers have dominated the first half of football against the Carolina Panthers in Green Bay. We recap the good, bad and ugly from the first half.

The Green Bay Packers are easily up big at halftime as they lead the Carolina Panthers 28-3. So far Aaron Rodgers is 15-of-17 for 194 yards and two touchdowns (153.4 rating). On the ground the Packers have rushed for 87 and two touchdowns as well. A great offensive and defensive performance for the Packers so far.

We recap the good, bad and the ugly from the blowout at Lambeau so far:


Carolina has been smoked by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense, who scored on their first three possessions of the game. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both have touchdowns along with the team's two running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks. As a team, the Packers have 268 yards compared to just 113 from the Panthers.


Frankly, there hasn't been anything bad for the Green Bay to start this game. The defense has been stout against the run, and Cam Newton has struggled passing the ball down field. There will presumably have to be a football apocalypse if the Panthers turn things the other way in the second half.


Cobb and Nelson each have more combined receiving yards individually (168) than the Panthers do total as a team (113). On top of that, the Panthers have just played a very ugly half of football ranging from missed tackles, to bad blocking up front.
