The Green Bay Packers scored 17 unanswered points and erased an early deficit in Washington to lead 17-11 at halftime.

After once being down 11, Aaron Rodgers found Davante Adams for a 10-yard touchdown with under a minute to go in the half to give the Packers their first lead.

Before that, on a free play, Rodgers found Randall Cobb in the end zone 12 yards out to make the score 11-7. That came after Mason Crosby booted a 43-yard field goal after a costly fumble by Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Washington's first points of the game came early on a safety after Preston Smith beat left tackle J.C. Tretter off the edge. Washington was forced to settle for a field goal on the ensuing drive after a goaline stop by the Packers defense and a bad delay of game penalty by Cousins. Two drives later, Cousins hit tight end Jordan Reed for a 24-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to register the first touchdown of the game to put Washington up 11-0.

Rodgers was just 1-for-8 (12.5 percent) in the first quarter, his worst completion percentage in a quarter in his career. At halftime he is 15-of-28 for 159 yards passing with the two scores.
