Packers Win Second Straight

For the first time in 2012, the Green Bay Packers (4-3) won back-to-back games as they beat the Saint Louis Rams (3-4) at the Edward Jones Dome Sunday, 30-20.  The Packers jumped out to a seven point lead after the first quarter, but only led by four at halftime.  Green Bay then outscored Saint Louis 20-to-7 before the Rams scored a touchdown with just 15 seconds remaining in the contest.  Packers head coach Mike McCarthy on what he told his team at halftime…

After tying a Packers single game record with six touchdowns passes in Houston, Aaron Rodgers turned in another solid performance.  The Packers quarterback completed 30 of 37 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns.  Rodgers and his teammates have faced plenty of criticism after what many consider to be a slow start…

Two of Rodgers touchdown passes went to Randall Cobb, who finished with eight catches for 89 yards. The second year receiver also lined up in the backfield and carried once for 19 yards.  Cobb has spent some time at running back this season and he enjoys the expanded role in the Packers offense…

Receiver Jordy Nelson caught eight passes for a team-high 122 yards and a score.  After scoring 72 points the past two games, Nelson believes the Packers offense is gaining confidence…

The Packers won despite being without Greg Jennings, B.J. Raji, Nick Perry and Sam Shields.  Corner Charles Woodson was pleased with the way the back-ups performed…

The Packers will play at Lambeau Field for the first time in nearly a month when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-4) Sunday.  Kickoff is at noon.

Notes:
The Packers have now won four straight against the Rams.  Green Bay trails in the all-time series, 45-46-2.

The Packers close their three game road swing at 2-1.  They have now won 12 of their last 15 played away from Lambeau Field.

The Packers have won 21 of their last 25, which is the best record in the NFL during that span.
