Cardinals vs. Packers score update: Arizona trails, 31-17, after 3rd quarter

After three quarters of play, the Green Bay Packers lead the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 31-17.

The Cardinals were able to make up some ground earlier in the third quarter thanks to a 31-yard touchdown pass from John Skelton to Larry Fitzgerald that capped off an eight-play, 87-yard drive. Later on, they closed the gap even further on a 20-yard Jay Feely field goal. It was the second lengthy drive of the quarter for Arizona, this time going 11 plays for 74 yards in a little over five minutes of possession time.

But the Packers kept pace with their opponents, adding a field goal of their own at the beginning of the second half after Skelton was picked off deep in his own territory. Later on, in the closing minutes of the quarter, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit wide receiver Tom Crabtree on a 72-yard strike to extend Green Bay's advantage to 14.
