Packers, Vikings tied after first quarter

MINNEAPOLIS–Sunday night’s game at the Metrodome began with a bang. The first quarter ended with the Packers and Vikings tied at 7-7.

Any designs the Packers had on a fast start were extinguished on the opening kickoff, when Vikings rookie Cordarrelle Patterson went 109 yards nearly untouched for a touchdown. It tied for the longest kickoff return in NFL history. When Packers rookie Johnathan Franklin attempted to do the same on the ensuing Vikings kickoff, the Packers were in a hole at their 10-yard line.

That’s how this one started. Ouch!

Enter Aaron Rodgers, who quickly restored calm by leading the Packers on a long scoring drive. The big play in the drive was a third-and-6 from the  Vikings 31. Rodgers scrambled away from the rush and for 12 yards and a first down at the 19.

A screen pass to Eddie Lacy gained nine yards and left third-and-2 from the 11. Rodgers’ touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson beat tight coverage by Josh Robinson, and the Packers had tied the game, 7-7, with 7:23 to play in the first quarter.

Rodgers was in the process of driving the Packers toward another score when the first quarter ended. He completed 10 of 12 pass attempts for 80 yards in the quarter.
