Aaron Rodgers made the plays he needed to when it counted.
Rodgers completed 17 of 32 for 315 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the win. He did this playing most of the game without his top two targets - James Jones and Randall Cobb. Jones hurt his left knee in the first quarter and Cobb left the game after being hit in his right knee, the Associated Press reports.
Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson to put the Green Bay Packers up 16-3 in the third. The Baltimore Ravens then got it to 19-17 after an 18-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Dallas Clark with two minutes remaining. The game was over when Rodgers completed a 52-yard pass to Jermichael Finley.
"Days like today remind you of why you love this game so much," Rodgers said. "Offensively, we're struggling a little bit, but we found a way to make enough plays to win."
The Ravens fall to 3-3 and are in second place in the AFC North with three division games in front of them. John Harbaugh says he and his coaching staff will not panic, according to the Baltimore Sun.
"I think we just need to continue to get better," Harbaugh said after the game. “We’ve got the right people. We’re doing the right things. The thing that we’re not going to do is overreact. You don’t go in there and make any kind of major adjustments when you know you’re doing things well, and you’ve got the people to do it. We’re a work in progress, no doubt about it."
