Through 30 minutes at Gillette Stadium, the New England Patriots lead the Green Bay Packers by a touchdown at 17-10.

The Packers’ run game has looked good in this game, as the team has rushed for five yards per carry, Aaron Jones leads the way with eight carries for 48 yards, and Jamaal Williams has pitched in with five carries for 27. However, Aaron Rodgers has been largely unproductive throwing the football, with his 16 completions and 27 attempts going for just 123 yards — 4.6 yards per attempt — and one touchdown.

The Packers’ defense has been struggling to contain the Patriots’ backfield, as James White gashed them early and Cordarrelle Patterson did so late. Patterson scored a touchdown late in the half to give New England their seven-point lead. Mike Daniels has the only sack of the game for either team in the first half.

Green Bay gets the opening kickoff of the second half. Join us for the third and fourth quarters here in our game threads.
