The Packers took the lead in the first quarter when Aaron Rodgers found Randall Cobb on a deep play and the receiver ran all the way into the endzone for a 70-yard touchdown.
New Orleans responded and managed to level the scores on their next possession when Drew Brees engineered a drive, which culminated in Brandin Cooks running into the endzone for a four-yard score.
At the end of the first quarter both defenses tightened and forced the field-goal kickers into action as Mason Crosby and Shayne Graham exchanged 31-yard field goals.
The duo were in action again in the second quarter when Crosby nailed a 49-yarder through the posts, while Packers made a crucial stop in the redzone to deny the home side a touchdown and force Graham into a 29-yard effort.
Just before the break, Crosby fired the Packers ahead with a kick from 27 yards, but with the seconds left on the clock Graham hauled his side level.
