Starting the second quarter in the red-zone, Brett Hundley was able to elude pressure and ran the ball into the end zone from 10-yards out to extend the Green Bay lead, 24-14.
After another Jordan Berry punt, Green Bay continued to move the football on the Steelers’ defense who was missing only Joe Haden, Cameron Heyward and Sean Davis. However, when Hundley moved the ball into Pittsburgh territory a Bud Dupree blind-side sack forced Green Bay to settle for another Mason Crosby field goal, making the score 27-14.
While it took almost an entire half, the Steelers defense finally forced a Green Bay punt, but Rudolph was under siege every drop back and after two sacks Pittsburgh was forced to punt yet again.
Jordan Berry’s pitiful night continued with a 28-yard punt, and DeShone Kizer moved Green Bay easily down the field for the eventual one-yard touchdown pass to Robert Tonyan to give Green Bay 34 first half points, and a 34-14 lead.
The 34-14 score would hold heading into halftime.
