End of 1st quarter: Packers 9 - Rams 0

The story of the 1st quarter is missed opportunities for the Packers. Three possessions on the Rams side of the field, with two turnover recoveries near the Rams red zone, and all the Pack can came up with is three field goals. Better than nothing. But the running game is again anemic, leaving 2nd and 3rd and long, forcing the Packers to go to the passing game constantly. There have already be two sacks by Leonard Little. Aaron Rodgers overthrew a wide open Donald Driver in the endzone which would have put the Pack up 10-0. Not.

For the Rams, starting QB Marc Bulger was knocked out of the game with an injury to his right shoulder, which resulted in one of the turnovers deep in the Rams' own end of the field. Kyle Boller is on in relief.

Still seeing the disturbing trends of the first two games. The Packers could have already put this game out of reach. As it stands...not.
