NFL: NFC Wild Card-New York Giants at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers lead 14-6 at halftime of their Wild Card game against the New York Giants.

The Giants struck first, kicking a field goal after a couple of drops by Odell Beckham, Jr. and Sterling Shepard. They added a second field goal in the second quarter, with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense stagnant.

The Packers’ offense woke up midway through the second quarter, though. On a short field, Rodgers hit Davante Adams on a pair of passes, finding the end zone on the second for a 7-6 lead.

Mike McCarthy took a pair of timeouts to give his offense the ball back with just under two minutes left, getting a 3rd and 1 stop to make it pay off. Aaron Rodgers then did the rest, finding Randall Cobb to get to midfield before recording another legendary moment. With six seconds left, Rodgers heaved a Hail Mary from 42 yards away, and he connected with Randall Cobb in the back of the end zone, giving the Packers a 14-6 lead at the break.

Rodgers finished the half 11 of 22 for 155 yards and those two touchdowns.
