Packers score on never-ending red zone possession
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Vikings gave the Packers seven -- yes, SEVEN -- chances to score starting with a first-and-goal at the six-yard line.
Three penalties -- encroachment by Jared Allen, a hold by Vinny Ciurciu and an offsides call on Ben Leber -- extended the Packers' drive. Finally, on third-and-goal from the 1-yard line, Aaron Rodgers hit fullback Korey Hall for a score to give the Packers a 7-3 lead with 10:07 left in the second quarter.
No defense, no matter how good it is, can give an opponent that many chances.
