After the first half of Sunday’s game in Charlotte, the Green Bay Packers lead the Carolina Panthers 14-10.

Aaron Rodgers’ return saw him make one notable mistake in the first half, a bad interception to Daryl Worley up the left sideline on a play that saw Rodgers unable to step up into his throw. However, Rodgers has had a handful of marvelous plays, including the go-ahead touchdown late in the first half that saw him take a big hit on his surgically-repaired collarbone.

That score went to Randall Cobb, who turned the short pass into a 33-yard touchdown. Rodgers also threw a touchdown to Davante Adams earlier in the game — Adams leads the Packers with five catches for 57 yards, while Cobb has three receptions for 57 yards of his own.

The Packers’ defense has also been a story in this game. After two straight long drives ending in touchdowns, the Packers forced a pair of punts, including a three-and-out immediately after Rodgers’ interception.

For the Panthers, Christian McCaffrey has been the star on offense. He has run the ball seven times for 36 yards, but has a huge day through the air already with six catches, 73 yards, and a touchdown.

The Panthers will get the football first to start the second half. Join us here and Go Pack Go!
