Halftime: Packers 13 - 'Queens 0

The Packers are dominating the ViQueens in terms of both time of possession (19:56 to 10:01) and level of play. Still, as in other games this season, there were missed opportunities which meant the Pack left points on the field, including an end of half drive that got the ball down to the 'Queens 7-yard line before a false start penalty (of course) and a high pass in the end zone off the fingertips of Koren Robinson made the Pack settle for its second field goal of the half.

Adrian Peterson has been held to 9 carries and 45 yards. Not only is the Packers defense doing a great job containing him, but when the Packers offense is able to stay on the field nearly twice as long as the 'Qeens that keeps Peterson on the sidelines. That's the best defense of all.

Brett surpassed 60,000 yards passing on a pass to Donald Driver in the quarter, joining Dan Marino as the only two QBs who have passed for more than 60,000 yards in their career. RB Ryan Grant is approaching 100 yards rushing (92), which would be the first time this season that the 'Queens have allowed a 100-yard rusher.

If the Packers play the second half with the same intensity that they have played the first half, 8-1 is only 30 minutes of football away.
