The Green Bay Packers’ playoff hopes are still alive, as the team is in a dogfight with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. The Packers’ offense has shown spurts of creativity and effectiveness, leading to a pair of first-half touchdowns, but the battered defense continues to have issues in the secondary. Those issues are the main reason that the score is 14-14. However, a pair of missed field goals by Dan Bailey are the reason the Vikings don’t have a lead at the half.
That Packers secondary has been skewered for nearly 250 passing yards through 30 minutes, as Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, and Kyle Rudolph are picking up chunks of yardage at a time. Each of those three receivers has more than 60 receiving yards in this game, while the Packers have just one player, Equanimeous St. Brown, with more than 25 yards (he has three catches for 53 yards).
Aaron Jones has eight carries for 36 yards and a touchdown for the Packers, while Davante Adams put the Packers on the board first with his tenth score of the season. Aaron Rodgers is 8-for-13 passing for 94 yards and that one score.
