Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

John Konstantaras

The Minnesota Vikings received the second half kickoff from the Green Bay Packers in their game at Lambeau Field, trailing 28-0. As is their wont, they started the second half with a three-and-out, with Jeff Locke punting the ball away to give the Packers possession at their own 29-yard line.

The Packers put together their longest drive of the night, featuring a 3rd-and-17 conversion courtesy of a (somewhat) questionable pass interference call on Josh Robinson to put the ball at the Minnesota 11-yard line. From there, Eddie Lacy finished the drive with an 11-yard touchdown run to push the score to 35-0.

The Vikings didn't manage a whole lot on their next drive, and punted the ball away to the Packers. Adam Thielen drew a personal foul after the punt for yelling at an official for reasons I'm not sure of, allowing the Packers to start near midfield. And the Packers capitalized once again, as Eddie Lacy found the end zone for the second time on the night from 10 yards out to make the score 42-0.

On the next drive, following a nice return from Marcus Sherels, the Vikings got into Packers territory for the first time all night on a pass from Ponder to Greg Jennings (who still got booed after the catch). A Matt Asiata run got the Vikings to the Green Bay 35, and as we go to the fourth quarter, the Vikings are actually facing a first-and-goal from the Green Bay 6-yard line.

The Vikings are getting absolutely hammered so far, as they trail the Packers 42-0 going into the final quarter of play. Let's see how much pride, if any, they can salvage.
