The Packers have now won nine out of their last 10 games after dismantling the Titans 55-7 at Lambeau Field Sunday. The regular season home finale featured another MVP-like day from Aaron Rodgers. His 342 yards, three passing touchdowns and one rushing TD kept number 12 in the MVP conversation with Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson, Tom Brady and Matt Ryan. A passer rating of 125.1 resulted from A-Rod's early Christmas.
The Packers quarterback registered just his second rushing touchdown of the season to cap Green Bay's first scoring drive. His six yard scamper was the beginning of a very active day for A-Rod.
Three minutes later, Rodgers escaped heavy pressure and connected with Randall Cobb for a touchdown from 20 yards out to give Green Bay an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
Mason Crosby would tack on field goals of 26 yards and a 48 yarder that hit the right upright hard. Leading 20-0 at the half, Green Bay was in control and things only got worse for Tennessee in the second half.
The Packers marched easily down the field on the first drive of the second half and added seven more on the Titans. Last week's "Witt Ford Red Zone With Graham Harrell" guest DuJuan Harris showed great patience on a touchdown run off the right side. His second career touchdown was scored from seven yards out.
Rodgers would throw two more touchdowns before exiting the game early in the fourth quarter. A 12 yarder to James Jones and a one yard strike to Greg Jennings would complete the scoring for the first string.
In scrap time, touchdown runs of seven yards and nine yards were scored by Ryan Grant. Tennessee scored with 1:39 left in the game on a two yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker to Kenny Britt.
The Packers defense tied a season high with seven sacks, allowed just 139 total yards and finished with two interceptions.
Green Bay plays at Minnesota next Sunday at noon. The Vikings' major upset of Houston 23-6 makes the final week very important for the playoff picture in the NFC.
