After starting the season undefeated, the Packers have been struggling to score during a three-game losing streak. Needing a burst of energy, Randall Cobb caught a 14-yard touchdown from Aaron Rodgers with less than :10 left in the first half to give Green Bay their first halftime lead since their losing streak began. They carried that momentum into the second half, overwhelming Minnesota for an important 30-13 win to retake the lead in the NFC North. Cobb finished the day with 24 yards and two receptions.
Danny Trevathan helped Denver hold the Bears’ offense to only 15 points with 8 tackles. His 3rd quarter interception kept Chicago from mounting a significant comeback attempt. Trevathan will likely find a thank you card from Brock Osweiler in his locker tomorrow.
Jacob Tamme had one catch for 16 yards, but his Falcons sputtered against the Colts down the stretch to shrink their playoff hopes.
The San Diego Chargers got a great day out of Stevie Johnson, hauling in 7 catches for 54 yards, but the Chiefs kept Johnson and the entire San Diego offense out of the end zone. The Chargers took a 33-3 ass-whooping. Good thing I’m just a Stevie fan and not a San Diego fan.
Instead of fighting for an NFL victory, Avery Williamson spent his weekend at Commonwealth Stadium during a Bye Week.
