Former University of Kentucky star Randall Cobb was held to three catches for 29 yards in Green Bay's 19-7 loss to Detroit, and he wasn't happy about it. He put the blame on himself.
The Lions took away Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson and neither Cobb nor anyone else picked up the slack. Green Bay managed just 223 yards of offense.
"Our defense played their butts off tonight," Cobb told Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We did nothing for them. It was kind of embarrassing as an offense, embarrassing myself the way I played.
"I have to do more, I have to give this team more. I have to look in the mirror first and see where it is that I can do to help this team out."
Never miss a local story.
Cobb has three touchdowns through three games, but he only has 14 catches for 126 yards.
It's Bridgewater's turn
The Minnesota Vikings are still searching for a running game in the absence of Adrian Peterson, and now will have to hope rookie Teddy Bridgewater can carry their passing offense.
Starting quarterback Matt Cassel fractured several bones in his left foot during a scramble in the second quarter, and the Vikings could not overcome an early 13-0 deficit behind Bridgewater, losing 20-9 to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Bridgewater, a first-round pick from Louisville, completed 12 of 20 for 150 yards while leading two scoring drives that both ended with field goals.
"I think I did pretty good for the most part, but I missed a couple of easy throws," Bridgewater said.
Another TD for Tamme
Former Boyle County and University of Kentucky star Jacob Tamme scored his second touchdown of the season on a 26-yard pass from Peyton Manning with 18 seconds left in Denver's game against Seattle.
The Broncos tacked on a 2-point conversion to extend the game to overtime before Seattle won.
It was the 10th touchdown of Tamme's career.
