Randall Cobb may have secured Green Bay’s win over the New York Giants last night, but it didn’t come easy. Cobb hauled in a nine-yard pass on third-and-six just before the two-minute warning, allowing the Packers to run out the clock, but as he went down, he took a scary hit in the neck from Giants safety Landon Collins:
Thankfully, Cobb appears to be okay and passed the team’s concussion test last night, but the moment was a scary one for him and his teammates.
“Got folded up like a lawn chair,” Cobb told reporters afterwards. “I laid there for a second. Then I turned over and, like, I had 15 faces in front of me. So I thought I had died or something. They kind of scared me more than anything. Yeah, I took a shot, and it hurt, but whenever I saw everybody standing around me, I thought I had died. And then I felt, I saw I could move my fingers and my feet. So I knew it was all right.”
“He’s an extremely tough, tough individual,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “He’s an incredible teammate, and I’m really proud to call him a friend. He played his butt off today. I mean, he was excellent. Took some shots, took a shot on the should-have-been touchdown, and took a shot there at the end.”
Cobb had his best game of the season last night, with nine catches for 108 yards, the first time he’s gone over 100 yards in a game since week two of last season. He’ll undergo more tests on his neck this morning and is currently listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Dallas.
This play from earlier in the game was particularly impressive:
