Packers hold 14-12 lead at halftime

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 28, 2012 – 1:38 pm

The Packers held a surprisingly slim 14-12 lead at halftime of today’s game against the Jaguars at Lambeau Field, thanks to a blocked punt that was recovered for a touchdown.

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

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers countered with a 69-yard touchdown drive he capped with a five-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 seven of 12 passes for 75 yards, one of Rodgers’ statistically weaker first-half performances of the season. Gabbert was 14 of 26 for 195 yards.
