St. Louis and Green Bay are knotted in a defensive struggle so far, with the Rams unable to find the end zone in the first half. But despite some early fireworks from Aaron Rodgers, the Rams trail by just four points, 10-6.
The Rams opening second-quarter possession took nearly seven minutes of clock, but Sam Bradford and the offense came away with no points. After moving the ball 67 yards on 10 plays, Jeff Fisher opted to go for it on fourth-and-two from the Packers 14-yard line. But Bradford's pass to Brandon Gibson fell incomplete and the Packers took over deep in their own territory.
Green Bay mounted their own clock-eating drive, but they were also forced to punt at midfield with two minutes to play. Bradford and the offense found a little rhythm as the half closed, marching into Packers territory to set up another Greg Zuerlein field goal attempt. Zuerlein, who nailed a 50-yarder in the first quarter, added his second of the day from 43-yards with less than a minute to play in the half.
Despite the inability to find the end zone, the Rams offense has not been a lost cause in the first half. Both Bradford and running back Steven Jackson have had success, with the St. Louis quarterback hitting 10 of 15 attempts and Jackson averaging 6.4 yards per carry.
