Packers vs. Rams score update: Green Bay leads, 10-3, after 1st quarter

The Green Bay Packers took an early 7-point lead on Sunday in St. Louis, with quarterback Aaron Rodgers hitting a couple big passes and finishing the quarter a perfect 5-5.

Greg Zuerlein, the Rams' fantastic rookie kicker, broke the early scoreless tie by drilling a 50-yard field goal halfway through the quarter. Zuerlein has garnered recognition throughout the league for his big first half of the season, and this attempt blistered past the left upright for the easy 3 points.

The Packers answered the Zuerlein field goal quickly, as the reigning MVP Rodgers worked with Jordy Nelson on the outside. The Packers quarterback went down the right side to Nelson for a 52-yard pickup, moving Green Bay deep into St. Louis territory. Two plays later, Rodgers capped the drive with a quick 3-yard touchdown pass to Nelson, hitting the back shoulder on a fade as the Packers' wideout stopped quickly and let Bradley Fletcher run by.

On the ensuing kickoff, Mike McCarthy opted for a little trickery, having Mason Crosby pop an onside kick up in the air. The Rams were caught off guard and the Packers came out with the ball in the scrum. Crosby added a field goal shortly thereafter to make it 10-3 Packers.
