Packers escape with 24-15 win

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 28, 2012 – 3:18 pm

The Green Bay Packers held on for a 24-15 win against a gritty Jacksonville Jaguars team on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

A 4-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Donald Driver was the eventual game-winner. It gave the Packers a 21-12 lead and capped a 52-yard touchdown drive that saved the day for a Packers offense that was at most other times ineffective, and allowed the Packers to escape with a win that wasn’t expected to be nearly as tight as it was.

The big play in the drive was a 31-yard pass over the middle to James Jones that carried to the Jaguars 4-yard line. Two plays later, Rodgers found Driver in the left-front corner of the end zone.

A 32-yard field goal by Josh Scobee cut the Packers’ lead to six points, but a three-and-out possession by the Packers offense gave the Jaguars the ball back at their 8-yard line with more than five minutes left to play.

The Jaguars quickly moved across midfield. On fourth-and-four, however, Blaine Gabbert threw incomplete, sealing the Jaguars’ fate. A pass-interference penalty against the Jaguars allowed Mason Crosby to boot a 28-yard field goal with 28 second to play in the game.

Jacksonville opened the scoring with a 38-yard field goal by Scobee that capped a 46-yard drive.

Rodgers countered with a 69-yard touchdown drive he capped with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb.

Midway through the second quarter, Davon House blocked a Bryan Anger punt. The ball was batted and rolled into the end zone, where rookie Dezman Moses fell on it for a touchdown. It marked the fifth big play by Packers special teams this season.

Jacksonville’s offense came to life in the final 2:35 of the first half. The Jaguars moved quickly from their 31-yard line, but the drive stalled at the Packers 4-yard line. Scobee was good from 22 yards.

On the Packers’ first play of their next drive, Rodgers was sacked and fumbled, and the Jaguars recovered at the Packers 13-yard line. Blaine Gabbert threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tackle eligible Guy Whimper. The two-point try failed.

Rodgers completed 22 of 35 passes for just 186 yards. Gabbert was 27 of 49 for 303 yards.

The Packers are 5-3 and will host Arizona next Sunday. The Jaguars slipped to 1-6.
