The Packers and Vikings have combined for 27 yards, one first down and are 0-for-6 on third down and 0-for-2 on fourth down. But they also have combined for 17 points.
The Vikings used a blocked punt for an opening field goal, and the Packers have had two return touchdowns.
Now, Packers safety Darnell Savage has scored his first career touchdown.
The Vikings went for it on fourth-and-two from the Green Bay 37 after getting good field position on a stop of the Packers on fourth down. Kirk Cousins tried to hit T.J. Hockenson, and the ball bounced off his hands and into Savage’s.
Savage returned it 75 yards for a touchdown to give the Packers a 14-3 lead.
The Vikings earlier lost center Austin Schlottmann, who was ruled out after being carted off with a left ankle injury. Chris Reed, the third-stringer, has replaced Schlottman, who was replacing starter center Garrett Bradbury (back) for a fourth consecutive game.
