Packers move to 11-4 after 55-7 win over Titans

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on December 23, 2012 – 3:10 pm

GREEN BAY–The Packers are a red-hot team heading into their final game of the regular season, following a 55-0 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 342 yards, three touchdowns and a 125.1 passer rating, before being replaced in the fourth quarter by Graham Harrell. Rodgers opened the scoring with a 6-yard touchdown run. His touchdown passes were caught by Randall Cobb, Greg Jennings and James Jones. DuJuan Harris rushed for a touchdown and Ryan Grant broke the stripe twice.

At 11-4, the Packers await Sunday night’s game between the 49ers and Seahawks. A Seahawks win would put the Packers in position to clinch the NFC’s No. 2 playoff seed next week in Minnesota. The win over the over-matched Titans is the Packers’ ninth in the last 10 games.

Titans quarterback Jake Locker was sacked seven times, held to 140 yards passing, most of which came at garbage time, and was intercepted twice (Sam Shields and Erik Walden) by a Packers defense that left Locker with a 41.0 passer rating. It was also encouraging that kicker Mason Crosby, mired in a long slump, converted both of his field goal attempts, though the second one, from 46 yards, glanced over the right upright before going over the crossbar.

The lone bad news for the Packers was an ankle injury Cobb sustained in the third quarter. Should his injury be of any significance, it would be another reason to root for the Seahawks against the 49ers, which would put the Packers in position to win a bye for the first week of the playoffs.

Green Bay gained 28 first downs to the Titans’ 10, and 462 yards to the Titans’ 180. The win marked the Packers’ 20th win in their last 21 games at Lambeau Field.

    Great win for the Packers, we’re playing our best football when it counts which is really good sign. We can only get better to with Charles Woodson and Jordy Nelson coming back.

    Sure hope Randall Cobb is ok, we’ll need him in the playoffs.

    Fix the score in the 1st paragraph you have 55-0…

    Other than that GO PACKERS!!!!

    It should have been 55-0. Really wanted that shutout. Anyway, hope Cobb is okay. The game against the Vikings matters even if the 49ers lose tonight. Grant has provided a much needed spark to this running game.

    Bring on the Vikings…

    Merry Christmas everyone…

    The article needs a correction. I believe Crosby’s field goal was from 48 yards, not 46.

    I loved the win! However, I’m watching the Giants play the Ravens and all I’ve got to say is…we have to beat the Giants straight up…the referees are not going to give us a break…and if y’all don’t think that the refs can turn a game…you are mistaken!

    RON, you SERIOUSLY are COMPLAINING about your team WINNING 55-7???? Spoiled ignorant brat?? BE HAPPY man, I feel really sorry for you. What a wasted effort destroying a team 55-7 getting hot EXACTLY at the right time, YEAH RON it’s a damn shame lmfao!

    Great game by the Pack, an all around team effort. It’s been mentioned that it’s a risk to allow Cobb to return both kickoffs and punts, as he is a key ingredient on the offense; I hope it’s only a minor injury, and he’ll be healthy for at least the playoffs Tonight’s game will be exciting, it’s just so hard to pull for the Seahawks.

    @ ron & mr knowitall, you’re both knuckleheads.

    @ the other perfect people who make themselves feel better by correcting Vic, do something else to improve your self-esteem; it makes you appear weak. Go Pack Go

    Great win. Builds momentum toward playoffs. Take care of business and win out that’s what I’m talkin about.
    Great job by everyone! Enjoy Christmas!

    Good game, I hope Cobb will be alright. Would really like to see Dujuan Harris do the kick off returns with his explosive running style.

    at big cheese and opie. No I wasn’t serious. I was spoofing many others that have posted, in the past following a win, their displeasure with how the game went. In fact in comments on Vic’s article about the win today there is a commenter that said we have to run the ball more than what we did. And its the 3rd week in a row with over 100 yds rushing. so no, i’m very pleased with victory and was being sarcatic.

    Posters are not the only ones that complain about our running game. The so-called pundits do it as well.

    I continuously hear about how Green Bay has no running game and that will be their downfall.

    Apparently if you have 1 guy rush for 150 yards that is better than 2 or 3 guys rushing for that same 150 yards.

    It may seem like simple math to most of us rational people but not to the Football Authorities at large.

    Anyway, great win.

    Great win by pack.Like what I see on the defensive side of the ball.We are getting better.That being said we have a stiff challenge coming up with the Vikings.Im very interested to see how are defense will do against AP this time.Our offensive line is getting better to.They look more physical and there opening more holes for our backs.Another thing I like is how our secondary is tackling better.This years team has the tools to go all the way.Lets keep improving and stay healthy.Lets all enjoy the ride.

    Congratulations Pack on a dominating win. Nice to see our defense totally controlling a game for the second straight week, even though it was against a weaker opponent. Hopefully this is the beginning of a trend for the playoffs. O and D lines will be the key to how long our season lasts. If our guys in the trenches can dominate, the best QB in the league and our skill position players (receivers/RBs on offense and secondary on defense) will be unstoppable. Nice to see Crosby getting some of the kinks out too- hopefully it continues.

    Next week will be a very good test- both teams have something to play for. For the Vikings- desperate for a win & wild card berth, final home game, Adrian Peterson going for the record. For the Pack- #2 seed and a first round bye (ironically, thanks to Seattle), playoff momentum, and stopping the league’s best running back. Lombardi always emphasized the need to dominate opponents going into playoffs- so no better way than to go 6-0 in the division this year by beating the Vikings in a tough road win.

    Merry Christmas and happy new year to the Packers players, coaches and families- let’s get-r-done next week and get ourselves healthy for a big playoff run!!
