After 30 minutes at Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings are locked in a tight battle. The two teams have just two effective possessions each, preferring to run their offenses through the ground game with winds swirling around the stadium. The Packers have touchdown drives of 13 and 15 plays, while Minnesota has put up scoring drives of 10 and 12 snaps. Davante Adams’ two touchdown catches and Dalvin Cook’s pair of scoring runs have the game knotted at 14.

Both quarterbacks have been efficient in lighter-than-normal workloads, which are due at least in part to the weather conditions. Aaron Rodgers is 11-for-12 for 78 yards and the two scores to Adams, while Kirk Cousins has completed seven of eight passes for 75 yards. The Packers have 81 rushing yards, with Jamaal Williams leading the way with 11 carries for 56 yards. Cook has 13 carries for 74 yards and two scores.

The Vikings will receive the opening kickoff of the second half. Keep it here at Acme Packing Company to follow along with Packers-Vikings!
