The Packers’ running game has been the story in the early going, with Aaron Jones ripping off a 46-yard touchdown on the first drive of the game and Brett Hundley scoring the team’s second touchdown on a 14-yard run. However, the passing game has been largely quiet, with Brett Hundley completing seven of 15 passes for just 56 yards.
The two offenses are relatively equal in terms of yardage, with the Saints picking up 225 total yards and the Packers having 195. However, the Saints’ two turnovers are the primary reason why they have just seven points on the scoreboard, as Drew Brees threw interceptions to Damarious Randall and Davon House in the first quarter.
The one notable injury for the Packers in the first half was to safety Kentrell Brice, who left the sideline on a cart after an apparent leg injury.
