Recap


Packers 30, Rams 20: Aaron Rodgers threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns as visiting Green Bay moved above .500 for the first time this season.

Rodgers finished 30-of-37 and connected on two scoring passes to second-year wideout Randall Cobb, including a 39-yard strike with 3:06 remaining to make it 27-13 and seal the victory for the Packers (4-3).

Jordy Nelson had eight receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown as Green Bay handed St. Louis (3-4) its first home loss and beat the Rams for the fourth consecutive time.

Sam Bradford went 21-of-34 for 255 yards with one touchdown and an interception and Steven Jackson rushed for 57 yards on 12 carries, including a 6-yard TD to bring St. Louis within 20-13 with just under nine minutes to play.

But Rodgers, who has nine TD passes and zero interceptions in his past two games, drove the Packers 80 yards in 10 plays before finding Cobb to snuff out the upset hopes of the Rams. St. Louis completed the scoring with a 3-yard scoring pass from Bradford to Austin Pettis with 15 seconds left.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Rodgers' second TD pass was the 150th of his career and broke the NFL record held for fewest interceptions (42) for a QB with 150 scoring passes. Dan Marino had 69 picks when he threw his 150th TD. ... Rams rookie K Greg Zuerlein, who missed his first three field-goal attempts of the season last week, hit from 50 and 43 yards and has converted all seven chances from 40-49 yards. He is 5-for-7 from 50-plus yards. ... Packers rookie CB Casey Hayward intercepted Bradford toward the end of the third quarter, giving him four picks in his last three games.
