The Green Bay Packers lead the Los Angeles Rams 10-6 at halftime on Monday Night Football.

Green Bay mostly moved the ball at will for much of the first half, especially through the run, and must be disappointed to come away with just 10 points. The Packers drove right down the field on their opening drive, but came away with only a field goal after Christian Watson and Jalen Ramsey got their feet tangled and the pass fell incomplete. They moved the ball easily again on the next drive, only for Aaron Rodgers to overrun a wide-open Allen Lazard for 10 yards on an interception by Taylor Rapp. They finally got a touchdown on their third possession of the contest when Dillon kicked it in from eight yards out. Dillon and Aaron Jones combined for 72 yards and 13 carries.

The Rams didn’t do much offensively and, frankly, were somewhat fortunate not to turn the ball over a few times. Baker Mayfield finished the half 8-of-14 for 74 yards (5.3 per attempt), and his two incompletions probably should have been pick-sixes. (Kingsley Enagbare and Kay Walker were inches away from looking like them.) He was also sacked three times and fumbled on one of them as the ball bounced past several Packers before eventually being recovered by the Rams. Los Angeles turned that drive into a 55-yard field goal by Matt Gay.

Will Green Bay hold on to their lead or will Los Angeles add another comeback to the tally this week? We’ll find out soon enough. Stay with CBS Sports the rest of the game for stats, scores and highlights.
