The Green Bay Packers beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 in what was an ugly battle between the two squads. The win was Green Bay’s first in Baltimore since they beat the Baltimore Colts back in 1974.
The win was a bittersweet one for the Packers, though. Randall Cobb and James Jones, two of their most productive receivers, both went down with injuries in the first half. Cobb returned to the sideline on crutches later in the game. We’ll bring you more information on both players when it becomes available.
Besides a very costly fumble at the end of the first half, Baltimore’s Joe Flacco put together a strong game. He finished with 342 passing yards and two touchdowns. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers had 315 passing yards and one touchdown, and he also threw an interception.
The game ball for the Packers should go to kicker Mason Crosby, who hit four of his five field goals (including a 50-yarder in the third quarter). Eddie Lacy also had a good game, running for 120 yards on 23 carries.
