Green Bay Packers vs. Tennessee Titans: The complete play-by-play, stats, pictures and much more


Led by the passing of Aaron Rodgers, the rushing of Ryan Grant, and the pass catching from a plethora of receivers, including James Jones who caught his 13th touchdown of the season, the Green Bay Packers put a near-goose egg on the Tennessee Titans today, 55-7 at Lambeau Field.

The only downer of the game was the injury to WR Randall Cobb, which didn’t look all that serious at the time. Stay tuned on his condition.

The Packers defense shut down the Titans all day long, while Aaron Rodgers threw for 342 yards, three touchdowns and ran for one touchdown. He got help on the ground from old reliable – Ryan Grant – who ran for two touchdowns and 80 yards on 20 carries. In all, Jones caught seven passes for 100 yards and a touchdown.

The Packers defense also accounted for seven sacks against Titans’ QB Jake Locker, two by A.J. Hawk, who had a heck of a day. Locker, had he not completed a long gimme pass inside of 2 minutes that led to the Titans’ only score, had trouble breaking 100 yards passing in a game when he looked thoroughly confused by the Packers scheme.
