Former University of Kentucky star Randall Cobb caught two short touchdown passes — 1 and 6 yards — from Aaron Rodgers in the Green Bay Packers' come-from-behind 31-24 victory against the New York Jets. The Packers trailed 21-3 early in the second quarter.
"We ... finally started executing the plays as called and made some big plays," Cobb said. "I think the heart and character of this team showed tonight. To get down like that, any team could lay down."
Cobb, who finished with five catches for 39 yards and two carries for six yards, also scored on a two-point conversion.
■ Former Western Kentucky standout Bobby Rainey, subbing for injured Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin, ran for 144 yards on 22 carries in the Bucs' 19-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams. Rainey also caught three passes for 30 yards.
