Packers vs. Cardinals Divisional Playoffs: Halftime Update and Second Half Discussion

New, comments

One team has just 30 minutes remaining in its season in Arizona.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

With 30 minutes in the books, either the Green Bay Packers or Arizona Cardinals have just one half of football left in their 2015 season. So far, the Cardinals have a slim lead, but Green Bay's offense has been moving the chains consistently over their past two drives, and have held the ball for nearly five minutes more than Arizona, who leads by a score of 7-6.

The Packers have suffered a few injuries in the first half. Randall Cobb has a chest injury, and was spotted spitting up blood after a great one-handed catch (that was erased by a penalty). He was ruled out for the game, while Micah Hyde was banged up in the third quarter as well.

Statistically, the Packers are getting big performances from Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis. Each player has four receptions; Abbrederis' have gone for 55 yards, while Janis has 36. Aaron Rodgers is 16 for 26 for 121 yards, and leads the team in rushing yardage with 21 on two carries.

The Cardinals got their only touchdown from Michael Floyd on an eight-yard pass from Carson Palmer. Overall, the Packers have outgained Arizona on offense 166 yards to 75, and the Packers have converted six of their ten third-down attempts.
