Green Bay - Green Bay hosted Jacksonville on Sunday and escaped with a four point win against the lowly Jaguars.

Despite 325 passing yards from Aaron Rodgers, the Packers did not find the scoreboard until the second quarter when Marquez Valdes-Scantling hauled in a 78 yard touchdown pass, his third in two games. 

Jacksonville would regain the lead on a Keenan Cole punt return for a touchdown before Aaron Rodgers ran in another score from five yards out to put Green Bay on top.

In the second half, Cole hauled in his second touchdown on a 12 yard strike from Jake Luton to tie the game at 17. Eventually, the Jaguars would take the lead in the fourth quarter. 

Finally, Rodgers would find Davante Adams for a six-yard touchdown pass to put Green Bay ahead for good. 

Jacksonville ran the ball 23 times for just under five yards a carry.

With the win Green Bay improved to 7-2. The team will travel to Indianapolis next Sunday to play the Colts.
