Despite earlier reluctance by the coaching staff to expose Cobb to injury, he has risen atop the punt returner depth chart for the Packers. Cobb may still split time with Micah Hyde or others.

Week 3: at Detroit Lions

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Aaron Rodgers pulled the Packers' fat out of the fire last week after the team was down 3-21 midway through the second quarter. He bombed the Jets for 25/42 yielding 346 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions with four sacks taken for -28 yards. He relied on stalwarts Jordy Nelson (16 targets for 9/209/1 receiving) and Randall Cobb (six for 5/39/2), while throwing seven balls to Davante Adams (seven for 5/50/0) - Jarrett Boykin (three for 1/6/0) seems to be falling behind Adams on the depth chart as of Week 3 - Adams is becoming the 'third wheel' to Cobb and Nelson. It's all good for the Packers in this phase of the game entering the third week of regular season. The Lions' pass D ranks ninth in the NFL averaging 197.5 net passing yards per game this year, with two pass TDs and two interceptions generated through two games. The Panthers put up 22/34 for 251 net yards passing last week, with one TD and one interception thrown - Cam Newton was sacked four times for -30 yards. Though the Lions' defensive front gets after opponents, their secondary is suspect when the rushers don't meet at the quarterback. This looks like a neutral matchup for the visiting Packers.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SEA (9 / 6 / 58 / 1 rec)

Despite the fact that the Packers kept Randall Cobb away from Richard Sherman, the receiver still had a tough day getting open. He did catch most of his targets, and drew a pass interference call which ended up as a 44-yard gain. Cobb also caught the lone passing touchdown on the day, a 3-yard score in the fourth quarter. On the play, he ran a very short slant, getting inside on the defender as he ran. He then spotted quarterback Aaron Rodgers scrambling to the right and scraped back that direction, mirroring Rodgers. The defender on Cobb drifted too far from the receiver and Rodgers delivered a quick throw on the run for the touchdown.

2014 Week 2 vs NYJ (6 / 5 / 39 / 2 rec, 2 / 6 / 0 rush)

While he didn't get a ton of targets, Cobb made what he got count in a big way. Cobb and quarterback Aaron Rodgers hooked up twice for touchdowns and like the rest of his catches, they were short yardage affairs. Cobb was a good outlet for Rodgers when the heat was on, as he could get the ball in Cobb's hands and give the receiver a chance to make a play. Cobb's route running skills were on display during both touchdowns. On the first, Cobb steps as if he's going outside, throws a shoulder fake and goes inside, totally confusing the defender. There was still a little traffic, but Rodgers slipped the pass in and Cobb made a nice catch. The second was a small outlet pass for just a yard where the defender couldn't keep up with Cobb. Overall it was a solid day for him, and the Packers continue to try and find ways to get the ball in his hands.
