MINNEAPOLIS–The Packers trailed the Vikings, 20-10, at halftime of today’s game in the Metrodome.

Minnesota went out to a 13-0 lead when they scored on each of their first three drives. Kicker Blair Walsh capped a 10-play, 41-yard drive with a 54-yard field goal, Adrian Peterson’s 7-yard touchdown run capped a 7-play, 60-yard drive, and Walsh booted a 37-yard field goal early in the second quarter.

Green Bay got back into the game following a 32-yard punt return by Jeremy Ross that carried to the Vikings 42-yard line. On third-and-goal from the Vikings’ 3-yard line, Aaron Rodgers found Greg Jennings alone in the back of the end zone for a touchdown that cut the Vikings’ lead to six points with 4:01 to play in the half.

The big blow by the Vikings immediately followed the Packers’ touchdown, when the Vikings drove 60 yards for a touchdown. Christian Ponder completed an 8-yard touchdownn pass to Jarius Wright that restored the Vikings’ advantage to 13 points at 20-7. The Packers bit on a play-action fake that left Wright all alone in the left flat.

Green Bay roared back down the field and moved inside the Vikings 40-yard line with 31 seconds to play, but Rodgers was sacked. With one second to play in the half, Mason Crosby booted a 51-yard field goal.

Peterson rushed for 91 yards on 17 carries. His long run went for 22 yards. Heading into the game, Peterson needed 208 yards rushing to become the NFL’s all-time, single-season rushing champion.

Ponder played an error-free half of football. He completed nine of 15 passes for 100 yards, ran twice for 16 yards and converted on third down on all four scoring drives.

DuJuan Harris replaced Ryan Grant at running back in the second quarter and gave the Packers a lift with 35 yards on six rushing attempts.

Rodgers completed 10 of 18 passes for 89 yards.
