Jags fall to Packers, 24-15

Aaron Rodgers threw for 186 yards and two touchdown passes, as the Packers defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-15.


No score in 3rd quarter, Jags still trail 14-12

After cutting the Green Bay lead to just two points just before half, the Jaguars couldn't get any offensive rhythm going in the third quarter and are still behind, 14-12.

Aaron Rodgers did find a rhythm as he drove the Packers down the field on a pair of drives, but the Packers strangely elected to attempt a fake punt that Tim Masthay threw woefully short and incomplete. On another drive, Rodgers drove the Packers deep in to Jacksonville territory, but the drive stalled and they were forced to settle for a 32-yard field goal from Mason Crosby. He banged it off the right crossbar.

Had the Jaguars had any offensive competency in the third quarter, they could have taken a lead; however, they finished with negative two yards of offense in the quarter. Blaine Gabbert struggled to find the stroke that he had in the first half.

The Packers have the ball near midfield to begin the fourth quarter.


Late touchdown cuts Packers lead, Jags trail 14-12

While a blocked punt blew the score open for the Packers and put the home team up 11 points on the Jaguars, a sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery by rookie second-round pick Andre Branch with less than a minute remaining in the half set up the Jaguars with an opportunity to score. The Jaguars were able to take advantage as Gabbert tossed a touchdown pass to offensive tackle Guy Whimper that cut the score to 14-12.

Gabbert's second quarter began with a deep bomb to Cecil Shorts III, but replay showed that the pass went through the arms of Shorts and was incomplete. While Gabbert completed a screen to Marcedes Lewis that went for a first down on the next play, he struggled from that point on with accuracy, missing several receivers, until the latter minutes of the quarter.

When the Jaguars were forced to punt, the Packers sent extra players to attempt to block a Bryan Anger punt and they were successful. The blocked punt ricocheted into the end zone before a Packers player fell on it to extend their lead to 11 points.

After the Jaguars were unable to convert a trip to the red zone into a touchdown and instead settled for a 22-yard field goal by Josh Scobee, the Packers attempted to score on a final possession with less than a minute left. Instead, Branch forced a turnover and Gabbert found Whimper from one yard out. The Jaguars attempted to tie the score, but a pass slightly behind Justin Blackmon was dropped by the rookie.


Jaguars trail 7-3, but Gabbert looking strong

While it was the Jaguars that got on the scoreboard first, the Packers finished the first quarter with a four-point lead after a five-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb made it 7-3 in favor of the home team.

Neither team scored on their opening possessions, but on their second possession of the game, quarterback Blaine Gabbert led the Jaguars down the field on a drive that included a 36-yard pass play to rookie first-round draft pick, Justin Blackmon. It's the longest reception of Blackmon's young career.

However, the drive stalled in Green Bay territory and the Jaguars were forced to settle for a 38-yard field goal from Josh Scobee. On the ensuing drive, the Packers responded with a nine-play drive that went 69 yards before Rodgers found Cobb streaking across the back of the end zone.

After one quarter, Gabbert has completed six-of-eight passes for 75 yards, with three of those receptions to Blackmon, who has a career-high 61 yards receiving already.


Jaguars vs. Packers inactives

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson is among six players listed as inactive for the Jaguars game on Sunday. Nelson re-aggravated a hamstring injury in practice last week and was labeled as "questionable" late in the week.

The plan for the star wide receiver was to test out his hamstring in pre-game warmups and make a decision from there. Nelson is coming off a big week against the St. Louis Rams and against the Houston Texans the week before. In those games he combined for 17 catches, 243 pass yards and four touchdowns.

Here's a look at the complete list of inactive players for the Packers: Charles Woodson, fullback John Kuhn, cornerback Sam Shields, linebackerNick Perry, wide receiver Greg Jennings, wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

For the Jaguars, cornerback Derek Cox (back), wide receiver Laurent Robinson (concussion), safety Dwight Lowery (ankle) and running backs Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) and Montell Owens (shoulder).are listed as inactive. Cornerback Rashean Mathis, despite a groin injury, is listed as active. Defensive tackles D'Anthony Smith and Jeris Pendleton are also active.
