Packers hold 12-0 lead after three quarters

Packers LB Andy Mulumba

ST. LOUIS–Defense continued to be the Packers’ strong suit through three quarters of Saturday’s game. The visitors held a 12-0 lead following Mason Crosby’s third field goal of the game.

A Jarrett Bush interception of a pass tipped by Johnny Jolly left the Packers at the Rams 29-yard line early in the third quarter. Vince Young, who replaced Graham Harrell at quarterback, missed wide receiver Myles White at the goal line on the first play following the interception. Two plays later, Young found White in the back of the end zone, but White was ruled not to have gotten his feet down in bounds. Another pass to White failed to move the chains, and Crosby came on to kick a 30-yard field goal that was partially blocked.

Rookie linebacker Andy Mulumba poured in on quarterback Kellen Clemens for the Packers’ first sack of the game and the Packers stopped another Rams possession, but a Rams punt was accidentally touched by Packers rookie Brandon Smith and the Rams recovered at the Packers 10-yard line with about eight minutes to play in the third quarter.

That’s when the Packers defense got tough again; remember all those skirmishes in training camp? On third-and-goal from the 5-yard line, defensive line Johnny Jolly intercepted a Clemens pass that skipped through the hands of cornerback Loyce Means, killing another Rams drive near the goal line.

Field position was clearly in the Rams’ favor when the Packers began a drive at their 1-yard line, but Young converted a third-and-one play with a naked bootleg run, and the Packers had breathing room. Young showed signs of growth in the Packers offense, in just his second week with the team.
