Minnesota started the second half with the football and drove down the field with ease against the Green Bay Packers defense. Kirk Cousins went 7-of-9 for 72 yards and the touchdown to Hockenson. A perfect way to start the half after some struggles finishing in the red zone in the first half.
The play before, on 2nd down, Hockenson was guarded by pass-rusher/outside linebacker Preston Smith who made a play to stop the touchdown then. Hockenson got his get-back on the very next play.
The lead extends to 17-3, making life difficult for Green Bay, who is already having trouble getting into a rhythm.
Cousins has been on a tear against the Green Bay defense as they continue to try to find answers against Cousins and this red-hot passing offense.
