Potential turning point for Green Bay

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Let’s see if Brian Robison's special teams error for Minnesota will turn this game around.
Robison, a Vikings defensive end, fielded a squib kick and began returning it rather than simply falling to the ground. Green Bay’s Desmond Bishop forced a fumble, and Nick Collins recovered it at the Vikings’ 41-yard line. Five plays later, the Packers pulled with 24-13 on a 16-yard touchdown pass to tight end Spencer Havner.
(Second score in two weeks for Havner, a converted linebacker.)
The Packers still have a long way to go. But for the first time since the first quarter, there is some life at Lambeau Field.
