Donald Driver has been in the NFL for 14 years and has made four Pro Bowls while being one of Aaron Rodgers‘ favorite targets. But the emergence of fellow wideout Randall Cobb is not lost on the veteran, and that was clear Sunday. With a third-and-goal from the Cardinals’ 13-yard line, Packers coach Mike McCarthy called a play that had Driver lining up wide with Cobb in the slot.

Cobb caught the slant, and Driver provided a nice block on cornerback William Gay en route to the touchdown. Technically speaking, Cobb is the team’s No. 4 receiver behind Driver, Greg Jennings
