Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

Hannah Foslien

The Green Bay Packers got the football first to start the second half at the Metrodome, and moved down the field with no real issue as they've done all night long. The Vikings actually got Green Bay into another fourth and short situation, but the Packers went for it again and converted on a pass from Aaron Rodgers to. . .who else. . .Jordy Nelson to keep the drive going. And after an eight minute drive that covered 80 yards in 15 plays, rookie running back Eddie Lacy found his way into the end zone from one yard out to make their advantage 31-17.

At that point of the game, the Packers were 10-of-13 on third down conversions. . .and after failing on two of those third downs, they picked up the necessary yardage on fourth down. The Packers have yet to punt to this point in the game.

Minnesota finally got the ball back at their own 20-yard line, and proceeded to three-and-out. Yeah, not terribly surprising.

Following that, the Packers got the ball and held on to it until the end of the quarter, as they are looking at a 1st-and-10 at the Minnesota 24-yard line.

Honestly, I'm to the point where I can't even get angry. Fifteen minutes left until the Vikings hit 1-6, barring a miracle that would rival anything involving loaves and fishes.
