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.
