Aaron Rodgers pitches four TDs in 31-17 Packers win

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 4, 2012 – 3:18 pm

There’s nothing wrong with Aaron Rodgers’ and Randall Cobb’s relationship. The two combined for a couple of touchdown passes in the Green Bay Packers’ 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

Cobb had one of the big days of his young career. He caught touchdown passes of 13 and 21 yards, gained 29 yards on three runs from scrimmage, returned a kickoff for 44 yards and a punt for 28. Cobb had 12 touches for 208 yards.

Meanwhile, Rodgers took his season’s touchdown passes total to 25 by pitching four scores against the Cardinals.

After trailing 24-7, Arizona rallied to the doorstep of cutting the Packers’ lead to four points, but rookie defensive lineman Mike Daniels stopped LaRod Stephens-Howling on third and goal from the 2-yard line, leaving the Cardinals to kick a field goal that cut their deficit to 24-17.

Enter Rodgers, who quickly pitched a 72-yard touchdown pass to reserve tight end Tom Crabtree, and the Cardinals were headed to their fifth consecutive loss.

The Packers, 6-3, ease into a much-needed bye week. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson was lost early in the game to an ankle injury, and linebacker Clay Matthews joined the Packers’ long injury list with a hamstring injury.

Running backs James Starks and Alex Green combined for over 100 yards rushing. Rodgers completed 14 of 30 passes for 218 yards. He scrambled five times for 36 yards and was intercepted once. Erik Walden intercepted a pass for the Packers.

    Nice win. Concerned about the injury to Clay. He has had hamstring issues for awhile. I know that it gets weekly attention. Hope that Jordy’s isn’t too serious either, although it looked like it was bad.

    very good game for pack to get to 6-3.i think we all worry about the injuries and thank god we have a bye week . packers will make the playoffs one way or the other, but desperately need to get some of these guys back if they hope to get to superbowl

    I would like to see the play again in which Clay was injured. He almost had the sack and stayed lying on the ground when he seemed to have been intentionally stepped on. Did anyone else see that?

    Great Game Packers!!!!!!!!!! My boy cobb snapped this game. Even if we have lots of injuries. Our 2nd string and rookies pull through with another win. Finely better watch out Crabtree looks hes gonna take your starting position. Let Green run it move hes getting better and better every week. 4 tds for A-Rod with 2nd string WR’s. Imagine what will happen when Jennings and Nelson come back healthy after the bye. Defense did good not great on run defense but need to fix pass defense a little. Love my Packers rest and get healthy

    Ah yes, with the upcoming rest and time to heal-up this is a great respite. While watching the Teaxans pay rude guests in Chg …. The Bears will not be favored next week at their place.

    THEN when we go against a very winable division foe, the Chg Bores travel to SF to see what they are really mad of on offense & D.

    Expect that the resultsa of these 3 games brings on a virtual tie 7-3 with @ “W”s in division for GB and a 1-1 record for the boring Chg Bears.

    Go Pack Go!!!

    I thought James Starks and Alex Green had a good day dispite the fumble by James. Cobb and Aaron had a great day dispite drops for Aaron. The defence did give up a few yards and points but a solid win. GO PACK GO!

    First the touchdown on the fake punt vs. the Bears and then the 72-yard touchdown vs. the Cards…

    Anyone think Crabtree deserves more playing time?

    Start Tom Crabtree, he knows how to catch a ball! Sorry but Finley needs to be put on the bench

    I take back everything I said about your catching ability James Jones!… you are a beast this season! Pro-bowl material son! Who here agrees with me?? GO PACK GO!

    Good game = Rogers & receivers on the same page and scoring more. Keep passing. The running game probably will need some help in the 2013 draft. Ankle injuries continue, maybe the pack needs to bring back high tops & taped ankles.
