Packers hold 10-6 lead at halftime

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 21, 2012 – 1:25 pm

ST. LOUIS–The Packers held a 10-6 lead over the St. Louis Rams at halftime of Sunday’s game at the Edward Jones Dome.

The Rams opened the scoring with a 50-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein in the first quarter. The Packers immediately responded with a five-play, 80-yard drive quarterback Aaron Rodgers capped with a three-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy elected to attempt a surprise onside kick following Nelson’s touchdown, and the Packers recovered Mason Crosby’s high-bounding kick but were only able to produce a 47-yard Crosby field goal.

St. Louis cut its deficit to four points with a 43-yard field goal by Zuerlein with :40 to play in the first half.

The Packers then started a drive that quickly moved down the field and allowed Crosby a field goal attempt from 58 yards. His kick squirted to the right.

Rodgers remained red-hot, completing 13 of 15 passes for 165 yards and, of course, one touchdown. Nelson is the Packers’ hot receiver with five catches for 86 yards, including a reception of 52 yards.

The Rams have been most effective on the ground, as Steven Jackson gained 51 yards on eight rushing attempts.

Randall Cobb is the Packers’ leading rusher with a 19-yard run. Alex Green has just 12 yards on seven rushes.

Defensive end Mike Neal is the only Packers injury to report. Neal sustained a knee sprain and his return is questionable.

    I am sick and tired of NOT being able to watch the game on T.V.!!! 2nd time in a row! I’m about to give up football! The Packers are a big time team, how come no one is showing the game?!!!!

    Where do you live Corrin….if there are two major teams playing at the same time…your local station will only cover the game closest to your area. That’s why we can’t watch the Packer today either. :(
