Green Bay leads 21-3 at the half.

NFL: NFC Divisional Round-Seattle Seahawks At Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

At halftime of their Divisional Playoff game, the Green Bay Packers lead the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 21-3. Green Bay has looked strong throughout the entire first half, ripping off a touchdown drive on the first series of the game and finishing off a pair of goal-line series in the end zone later on.

The Packers got plenty of contributions throughout the first half of the game from their stars on offense. wide receiver Davante Adams, who caught the game’s first touchdown. Adams caught six passes for 88 yards and that score in the first half. Meanwhile, Aaron Jones did the dirty work down near the goal line, scoring two one-yard touchdowns and picking up 46 yards on 13 carries.

Aaron Rodgers has completed 10 of his 15 pass attempts in this game for 120 yards and that one touchdown to Adams, giving him a passer rating of 113.2.

On defense, the Packers have held up largely the same way they have all season long. They have given up a couple of explosive plays, but clamped down after each one, forcing the Seahawks to field goal attempts. Jason Myers hit from 45 yards early but missed badly from 50. Za’Darius Smith is predictably leading the way, recording a pair of sacks in the first half, while Kenny Clark landed a big sack on Seattle’s final possession of the half, which ended in an incomplete pass on a Hail Mary attempt — and yes, the ball did in fact fall incomplete.

The Seahawks will receive the opening kickoff of the second half. Keep it here at APC for updates throughout the game.
