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.

    My ESPN app said Randall Cobb ran back a 109 yarder with 17 seconds left in the second quarter…?

    IF I WERE HEAD COACH , OR OWNED A FOOTBALL TEAM , I WOULD DO ,& TRY EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO MAKE RECIEVERS PAY A FINE, & a big one, for dropping them simple ,catchable, passes . THEY should be paid by performance. THEY could care less if they drop the ball , they still get paid the same

    The Jaguars made the Packers look very, very, weak, on offence. Tom Clements will NOT be the OC next year; he certainly can’t hang his hat on the fact that he coached Rodgers successfully because we all know that anyone would look good coaching him. It is absolutely disgraceful that the Packers can’t get more than a 1.7 yd per carry average out of a solid running back!!! It’s not the O-line; it’s the O.C!!!!!!!!!

    How can this team go into Houston and kick the crap out of one of the best teams in the league, yet struggle mightily against one of the weakest ? And I don’t want to hear about injuries. Yes, there’s no Jennings, no Nelson, but we still have Jones, still have Cobb, still have Driver – no excuses. We dodged a major bullet there. And for the love of God, can we go out and get Steven Jackson or Chris Ivory – anyone, but those third down backs we currently have?
