GREEN BAY – When the Packers got the ball back with 2:08 left in the first half Sunday night, getting any points before halftime was the goal.

To get seven in barely over a minute made for a quick, efficient Chevy Drive of the Week in the 37-10 triumph over the Vikings.

Leading 13-0 at the start of the drive, quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasted no time, hitting WR Davante Adams for 19 yards over the middle.

Short passes to RB Aaron Jones and WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling moved the chains again before a quick out to Allen Lazard gained 6 yards and put the Packers inside the Minnesota 30-yard line.

From there, it took just two more throws to Adams, covering 17 yards on a back-shoulder along the sideline, and then 11 yards over the middle for the score, and the Packers led 20-0. The margin never dropped below three scores the rest of the game.

In all, the drive covered six plays and 64 yards in 63 seconds, with Adams accounting for three of the six completions and 47 yards, roughly one-third of his 136 on the night.
