Scott Tolzien playing well, but Packers trail Giants at halftime

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers haven't found the endzone and trail 10-6 despite an efficient outing from Tolzien.

Scott Tolzien played a solid first half for the Green Bay Packers, but the lack of any running game has the team trailing, 10-6, against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Tolzien, pressed into action with Aaron Rodgers and Seneca Wallace injured, was efficient through two quarters, going 7-of-11 for 131 yards, but hasn't been able to guide the Packers into the end zone.

Green Bay was expected to lean heavily on Eddie Lacy and the run game with Rodgers sidelined with a fractured collarbone, but has mustered just 13 rushing yards against the Giants. Lacy, the team's second-round pick in the 2013 draft, has seven carries for just 14 yards, and James Starks has lost a yard on his two carries.

Lacy had 150 yards in a loss to Chicago two weeks ago when Rodgers suffered his injury, but managed just a 3.0 yards per carry average during a 73-yard performance in a loss to the Eagles last week.

Tolzien led the Packers down the field with 1:18 remaining in the half in a drive that resulted in a 57-yard field goal from Mason Crosby. The kick was one yard shy of the Packers' franchise record and is the longest kick ever made against the Giants.

The Giants scored their only touchdown on a 26-yard pass from Eli Manning to Rueben Randle during the first quarter.
