At halftime, the Green Bay Packers hold a 17-10 lead over the Denver Broncos at Lambeau Field.

The Packers jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead on the first drive of the game. Aaron Rodgers completed three passes on the drive, finishing it off with a free play. After drawing pass-rushers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb offside, Rodgers floated a perfect ball to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who hauled in a falling catch for a 40-yard touchdown.

The Broncos fought back in the second quarter, running a length eight-plus-minute drive that culminated in a Phillip Lindsay touchdown run to tie the game. After the two teams traded field goals to bring the score to 10-10, Packers linebacker Preston Smith sacked Joe Flacco, forcing a fumble that Rashan Gary recovered at the five-yard line. Aaron Jones punched the football in from seven yards out to give the Packers a 17-10 lead.

Rodgers finished the half 8-for-14 for 141 yards and a touchdown. Valdes-Scantling has three catches for 76 yards and a score, while Davante Adams has three grabs of his own for 42 yards. Meanwhile, Joe Flacco is 9-for-11 for 75 yards, but coughed up the turnover, while Lindsay has 12 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown.
