Packers fend off Panthers

A 21-3 halftime lead proved to be important as the Green Bay Packers held on to win their game against the Carolina Panthers 24-16 at Lambeau Field Saturday night.

 

The Packers' three touchdowns came on consecutive drives as Aaron Rodgers found Robert Tonyan for a one-yard score in the first quarter and found the endzone himself on a quarterback keeper in the second quarter. Aaron Jones found the endzone later in the second quarter to give the Packers a 21-3 lead. The Panthers would claw back into the game in the second half with a Teddy Bridgewater touchdown run in the third quarter and a pair of field goals in the final stanza. Mason Crosby also kicked a field goal for the Packers in the fourth quarter. Jones led the way for the Packers as he picked up 145 yards on 20 carries. The Panthers ended up having a slight edge in time of possession (30:51-29:09) and in yards (364-291). 

 

The Packers will next play on December 27th when they face the Tennessee Titans on Sunday Night Football.
