Packers Win
by Michele McCormack


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers went back to an old favorite, connecting with Donald Driver on a 4-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal Green Bay's 24-15 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Rodgers threw two touchdowns, passing Bart Starr for second place on Green Bay's all-time list, and Dezman Moses gave the Packers their first touchdown on a blocked punt in almost 22 years. But Green Bay (5-3) had a surprisingly tough time with the NFL's worst team, which lost its fourth straight.

Playing without top receivers Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, Green Bay's offense struggled to find its groove all afternoon. Jacksonville (1-6), meanwhile, looked unfazed by the absence of Maurice Jones-Drew. Backup Rashad Jennings finished with 115 yards of offense, and Cecil Shorts had a career-best 116 yards on eight catches.

Linebacker Brad Jones had a key play when he forced a fumble.

Sports Anchor Kevin Holden talked to Jones after the game.
