After 30 minutes from Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers lead the Miami Dolphins by a score of 14-9. The Packers scored on their first two offensive series of the game, which were sandwiched around a fumble by Tramon Williams on a punt return. Those two drives featured over 120 total yards from Aaron Jones, who broke off a 67-yard sprint on the second series before punching in a two-yard touchdown.
Aaron Rodgers got the Packers on the board first, finding Davante Adams for a seven-yard touchdown early in the game. He finished the first half 11-for-14 for 98 yards and that touchdown; Marquez Valdes-Scantling leads the team’s receivers with four catches and 36 yards, while Jones has 8 carries for 101 yards and a score plus a pair of receptions for 27 yards.
However, the Packers could — and probably should — be up by a bigger number. They coughed up the football on the aforementioned punt return, failed to convert a fourth-and-two attempt (a sack of Rodgers), and were pushed out of field goal range by a sack on their last series of the half.
The Packers will receive the opening kickoff of the second half when play resumes. Stay tuned as we follow the second half of the game here.
