Ex-Cat Randall Cobb catches two more TD passes in Packers' win

Randall Cobb caught two of Aaron Rodgers' four touchdown passes, sparking the Green Bay Packers to a 31-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Cobb, the former Kentucky star, had a 13-yard TD catch for the Packers' first score, then hauled in a 21-yarder in the end zone to give Green Bay a 14-7 lead. He had 202 all-purpose yards.

"Should have been more," Cobb said. "I dropped a few balls, so I gotta make those plays, too."

Cobb has six touchdown catches this season, including five in his last three games. Through nine games, he has 45 catches for 500 yards.

Rodgers threw for 218 yards and four touchdowns but was just 14-for-30. He did break off a 25-yard run to help set up Green Bay's first score, and he sealed the win with a 72-yard pass to Tom Crabtree, who outraced the Cardinals (4-5) to the end zone.

The Packers (6-3) take a four-game winning streak into their bye week, which they badly need after losing three more players — Clay Matthews (hamstring), Jordy Nelson (ankle) and Bryan Bulaga (hip) — to injuries during the game.
