Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to their first back to back win of the season in a 30 – 20 victory on the road this Sunday. Despite being sacked three times in the first half, he was able to dispose of the ball a lot quicker to avoid more flaws in the Packers’ second turnover free game. Rodgers passed for three touchdowns completing his first nine passes for 115 yards while Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson had eight receptions nailing a season best 122 yards and a touchdown for the packers. Wide Receiver Randall Cobb caught two touchdown passes with a significant 39 yard touchdown pass from Rodgers in the fourth quarter. Green Bay was missing four defensive starters due to injuries but that was not enough to diminish their determination to earn their second consecutive victory of the season. Cornerback Sam Shields is currently out with a shin and ankle injury, tackle B.J. Raji is also out with an ankle injury, linebacker Nick Perry has a hurt knee and linebacker D.J. Smith is currently on the injury reserve and may be out for the season.

Rookie cornerback Casey Hayward started for the first time today filling in for injured Sam Shields and had a good showing, intercepting his fourth pass in three games. Aaron Rodgers went 9 for 14 on third down leading an offensive end that relied heavily on a passing game and it paid off in the long run. This Sunday’s game could have been easily mistaken for a home game for the Green Bay Packers as a huge crowd of supporters cheered them on with encouraging chants. Rodgers left the playing field today to a massive ovation and it was a well-deserved one.
