At halftime of Sunday’s game, the Green Bay Packers lead the New York Giants 17-10. Green Bay jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead, forcing a three-and-out on New York’s opening possession and breaking off a seven-play, 72-yard drive to take an early edge.
New York fought back on the ensuing drive, scoring a touchdown after a key fourth-down conversion. Kevin King allowed the score on a pass from Daniel Jones to Sterling Shepard, but King would help make up for it with an interception on the next series. That came following a second straight Packers touchdown drive. That one was just four plays, and Aaron Rodgers capped it off with a 37-yard strike to Allen Lazard for the score.
The two teams traded field goals in the second quarter, but the Packers were unable to score on a drive before halftime, preventing them from doubling up around the halftime break. Green Bay will receive the opening kickoff of the third quarter.
Rodgers completed nine of 13 pass attempts in the first half for 129 yards and two touchdowns, one each to Lazard and Davante Adams. Rodgers, Jamaal Williams, and Aaron Jones each have either 18 or 19 rushing yards, while Lazard leads the way with a pair of catches for 80 yards. Blake Martinez meanwhile leads the defense with nine total tackles.
