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

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.
