The Green Bay Packers have drawn first blood in their NFC North showdown with the Minnesota Vikings. This came via the special teams unit.

With the two teams locked in a 0-0 tie early, a Minnesota punt attempt was blocked by Geronimo Allison. Rookie Josh Jackson then hauled in the loose ball for a score.

It was the first touchdown in the young career of Jackson.
