The Packers held a 21-7 lead over the Arizona Cardinals at halftime of today’s game at Lambeau Field.
Aaron Rodgers threw touchdown passes of 13 and 21 yards to Randall Cobb, and one of 28 yards to James Jones to close the scoring with 1:54 to play in the half.
Those scores offset an interception by Arizona’s William Gay, who stole the ball from Cobb’s hands following a second-quarter reception attempt. Gay’s interception was immediately followed by a 69-yard pass from quarterback John Skelton to wide receiver Andre Roberts, who beat Packers rookie cornerback Casey Hayward on the play. Running back LaRod Stephens-Howling scored on a one-yard run two plays later.
The Packers’ touchdown drives covered 84, 80 and 75 yards. They failed to score on a short field, following a short punt by the Cardinals and a long return by Cobb. Mason Crosby missed a 44-yard field goal attempt.
Green Bay’s running game produced 127 yards, 37 of those yards by Rodgers on scrambles.
Rodgers completed 11 of 19 passes for 137 yards.
