At halftime of this week’s Thursday Night Football game, the Green Bay Packers trail the Philadelphia Eagles by the score of 21-20.

The Packers started hot, going up 10-0 early on in the game on a pair of long drives. Aaron Jones punched in a three-yard touchdown on the first series following a huge 58-yard reception by Davante Adams.

Adams broke out in the first half, as many expected. expected. He excelled early on, crossing the hundred-yard mark in the first quarter alone. He finished the first half with 10 catches for 158 yards — more than the 146 yards of total offense that the Eagles recorded in the half — but the offense bogged down inside the red zone as the team was forced to kick a pair of field goals after crossing the Eagles’ 20-yard line. However, Geronimo Allison made a pair of huge catches just before the end of the half, including a 19-yard touchdown to pull the Packers back within one.

One of the big stories of this game is field position, however. All three of the Eagles’ touchdowns have come on short fields; one after a 60-yard kickoff return by Miles Sanders, one following a kickoff out of bounds by Mason Crosby, and one after a sack-strip of Aaron Rodgers by Derek Barnett.

Of course, Barnett should not have been in the game at that point anyway. He laid a dirty, late, helmet-to-helmet hit on running back Jamaal Williams on the Packers’ first offensive play of the game. sending Williams off on a stretcher.

The Packers will receive the opening kickoff of the second half. Keep it here for the remainder of tonight’s game.
