The Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders were locked in a pretty tight battle on Sunday at Lambeau Field until the two-minute warning, but the Packers got a break and spread out to a two-possession lead at halftime. The Packers lead 21-10 at the half thanks to three touchdown passes by Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers is averaging more than ten yards per pass attempt today, going 15-for-19 for 201 yards and those three scores in the first half for a passer rating of 150.3. Aaron Jones leads the way with eight carries for 38 yards and three catches for 29 yards and a score, while Rodgers added touchdown passes to Jamaal Williams and Jake Kumerow.
The Packers’ defense has struggled a bit, but they have made some big stops in their own territory, including forcing a field goal on Oakland’s opening drive. While threatening, the Raiders fumbled the football with goal-to-go, however, giving the Packers back the football with a 14-10 lead just inside the two-minute warning. Derek Carr lost control of the ball while reaching for the pylon and it went through the end zone for a turnover. Rodgers and company made the Raiders pay, as he found Kumerow for a 37-yard touchdown up the sideline just before the half.
Keep it here for the second half of today’s game.
