Packers Edge Ravens In Baltimore

The Packers picked up their first road win of the year, knocking off the defending Super Bowl champs.
It was a costly win in terms of bodies, but the Green Bay Packers picked up a much-needed first road win of the season, beating the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 in Baltimore.

Aaron Rodgers spent much of the afternoon taking hits and throwing to a depleted receiving corps. James Jones went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter and Randall Cobb later went down after taking a big shot to his knee. Jones didn't return to the game and Cobb didn't either, spending the rest of the afternoon on crutches.

But Rodgers and the offense eventually picked itself up. Rodgers found Jordy Nelson streaking down the field for a 65-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Then, in an effort to bleed the clock, he hooked up with tight end JerMichael Finley for a 51 yard reception at the end of the game. Rodgers finished 17/32 for 315 yards and a touchdown, but didn't lead the prolific offense that has become the standard in Green Bay.

No injury updates were provided for Jones or Cobb, and the Packers only had 4 active receivers coming into the Baltimore contest. They're back home next Sunday against the Browns.
