They get the first, and after two quick incompletes, it's third and 10. But the Packers always seem to manage to hang on just long enough, and rodgers finds Driver again to keep the chains moving. A follow up run of 19 yards for James Starks, brings them to the Philadelphia 30 yard line. a five yard run, and a 16 yard completion to a lonely John Kuhn gives Green Bay first and goal.
