Recap


Packers 24, Jaguars 15: Aaron Rodgers threw a pair of touchdown passes and Dezman Moses recovered a blocked punt in the end zone as Green Bay won for the 16th time in 17 home games.

Rodgers connected with Randall Cobb for a 5-yard scoring strike late in the first quarter and tossed a 4-yard touchdown pass to Donald Driver less than 2 1/2 minutes into the fourth to open a 21-12 lead for the Packers (5-3), who have won three straight overall.

With Green Bay already ahead 7-3, Devon House blocked Bryan Anger's punt at the Jacksonville 27. Several Packers attempted to pick up the ball before Moses pounced on it in the end zone with 8:45 remaining in the second quarter to extend the advantage.

After Josh Scobee converted a 22-yard kick for his 19th consecutive successful field goal with 1:03 left in the half, the Jaguars (1-6) regained possession as Rodgers fumbled while being sacked. Blaine Gabbert threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to eligible lineman Guy Whimper, but the two-point conversion that would have forged a 14-14 tie failed.

Gabbert, who was questionable due to a left shoulder injury, completed 27 of 49 passes for 303 yards while Cecil Shorts had eight receptions for 116 yards.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Green Bay K Mason Crosby missed a 32-yard field-goal attempt late in the third quarter that would've given his team a five-point lead as the ball hit the right upright. ... Rodgers, who was 22-of-35 for 186 yards, has thrown 18 touchdown passes and just two interceptions over his last five games. He has 11 scoring strikes and no picks in his last three contests. ... Jacksonville has lost 12 of its last 14 road games.
