Handing out grades following the Green Bay Packers' 19-17 road win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6: Passing Offense: C It's a surprise given that Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback of this team, but the passing game was the weakest aspect for the Packers in Baltimore. While the first-half injuries to wide receivers James Jones (leg) and Randall Cobb (knee) certainly didn't help matters, there were some struggles in this area even before those two went down. For the third consecutive game, Rodgers threw only one touchdown pass. If Rodgers hadn't earned himself the reputation as one of the NFL's elite quarterbacks, expectations would be different.

Rodgers also fumbled twice (though neither resulted in a turnover), threw an interception and completed a season-low 53.1 percent of his passes. Green Bay's receivers and offensive line didn't do Rodgers many fa...

Harbaugh disagrees with Rodgers, has no problem with Elam's hit

Just before the half of last Sunday's Packers-Ravens game Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers connected with wideout Randall Cobb who was promptly tackled by Baltimore safety Matt Elam.

Starter Pack: Trust in Jarrett Boykin

Tuesday’s decision to put Randall Cobb on the injured reserve/designated for return list did not cause general manager Ted Thompson to make a bold play to bolster his receiving corps through a trade or a free-agent signing. Rather he did what he usually does; he promoted from within. He signed a pair of practice squad rookies -- receiver Myles White and tight end Jake Stoneburner...

Packers are 3-point favorites against Ravens...

I'm not too surprised that the Pack is favored by Vegas as a visitor going into M&T Bank Stadium, considering that many bettors will take Baltimore and the points.
