Rodgers stays hot in 30-20 Packers win

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.
