Rodgers stays hot in 30-20 Packers win

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 21, 2012 – 3:02 pm

ST. LOUIS–The Packers scored a hard-fought 30-20 win over the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, sending Green Bay’s record over the .500 mark for the first time this season at 4-3.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was the star of the game, throwing for 342 yards and three touchdowns. Rodgers gave the Packers a 17-6 edge on the first series of the third quarter, and then drove the Packers to a 23-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that upped the visitors’ lead to 14 points, but the Rams came roaring back with a six-play, 80-yard touchdown drive that cut the Packers’ lead to seven points with about nine minutes to play in the game.

Rodgers and the offense immediately responded with a ball-control drive that ate up much of what remained of the clock and scored the game-clinching points on a 39-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to Cobb. The drive covered 80 yards in 5:44.

Crosby booted a 48-yard field goal after the Rams failed on a fourth-down play deep in their territory. The Rams then scored a touchdown at “garbage time: to close the scoring.

Rodgers continued the hot hand he displayed last week in Houston, which put Rodgers at the top of the league’s passer ratings. Cobb caught two touchdown passes and Jordy Nelson caught one. Nelson also topped the 100-yard receiving mark.

Rookie cornerback Casey Hayward added another interception; he intercepted two passes in last week’s win in Houston.

The win capped three consecutive road games and sends the Packers home for games against Jacksonville and Arizona before the team’s bye week.

    Good win on the road, especially with the injury situation. Two late scores let up by the defense may be something to be concerned about. The Pack responded as expected to the first one. The second one didn’t matter, but it would have been nice to keep the Rams out of the end zone. The running game still is missing in action, after some sightings last week.

    30 points isn’t bad, but this offense should be scoring 40+ per game…

    hello packer fans,great game by the the packers.i’m glad the packers went to the ball control offence in the second half. well played game.i like alex green as a running back but it seems he is thinking too much when he is running, he is either half a step too late or he is trying to stretch it out too much. i like the way they put john kuhn into action, we got positive yardage out of it.love that hayward plus 31 i believe its house played a great game as well. shareholder in canada.

    This was a true team effort on both sides of the ball. Our D-backs are getting better, however Devon House got schooled on the last touchdown. Hopefully, he learns from his mistakes.
    Go Pack Go!!

    Jordy Nelson is the best WR in the league. I have no doubt of this.

    24 rush attempts, i like it. Gives the opposing defense more to prepare for even if we don’t get alot out of it. 4 wins when we stay with the run, 3 losses when we go away from it. Passing attack much better any one can see the correlation.
