Packers now 5-3 after 24-15 victory over Jacksonville Jaguars
GREEN BAY -- The Green Bay Packers defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-15 Sunday, October 28th and improved to 5-3.
The Pack was back home at Lambeau Field Sunday -- following a three-game road trip.
The Green Bay Packers were without top receivers Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson this week. Nelson injured his hamstring during practice Wednesday.
Jennings, who will have surgery Tuesday to repair the torn abdominal muscle that has sidelined him, was inactive Sunday for a fourth straight game.
The Packers were also without Charles Woodson, who broke his collarbone last weekend against St. Louis, fullback John Kuhn, cornerback Sam Shields and linebacker Nick Perry.
A four-yard touchdown pass from Packers' QB Aaron Rodgers to Donald Driver eventually sealed the victory for the Pack. It gave the Packers a 21-12 lead and capped a 52-yard touchdown drive.
Rodgers completed 22 of 35 passes for just 186 yards. Jaguars' Blaine Gabbert was 27 of 49 for 303 yards.
The Packers are 5-3 and will host Arizona next Sunday. The Jaguars slipped to 1-6.
