Despite early reluctance by the coaching staff to expose Cobb to injury, he rose to the top of the punt returner depth chart for the Packers at the start of the season. Micah Hyde is beginning to steal returns away from Cobb, however.

Week 7: vs Carolina Panthers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Aaron Rodgers has thrown six TDs and zero interceptions over the past two weeks, with three players earning double-digit targets during that time span: Jordy Nelson (19 for 10/173/2), Randall Cobb (11 for 8/92/2), and Davante Adams (12 for 7/88/1). Tight end Andrew Quarless handled the other available pass TD over the past two weeks, with seven targets for 4/30/1 receiving, but he is a marginal option compared to the top three wide receivers. The Panthers' pass D has allowed four passing scores over the past two weeks, but has also generated four interceptions (33/43 for 320 net passing yards, two TDs and two interceptions for Andy Dalton last week; 28/36 for 262 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions for Jay Cutler two weeks ago - Cutler was sacked four times for -26 yards, while Dalton was dumped once for -3 yards). To date, the Panthers' secondary is ranked 20th in the NFL with an average of 252.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 12 passing scores given out vs. seven interceptions (tied for fifth in the NFL) and 13 sacks (tied for 15th) generated so far. Rodgers and company are on a tear - they should enjoy solid results against the so-so Panthers' D.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 4 vs CHI (9 / 7 / 113 / 2 rec)

Kevin Patra of NFL.com wrote recently that Cobb had called his own play (and that of the offense's on the whole) embarrassing, so it should come as no surprise that he came out firing on Sunday. After an early overthrow from his quarterback, Cobb went on a tear, catching five of his next six targets and scoring the first of his two touchdowns. On the play, the defense was in man coverage with cornerback Isaiah Frey on Cobb, who easily beats him. Rodgers lobs a perfect pass which Cobb hauls in as Frey tries to knock the ball out of his hands. Cobb's second touchdown was even easier as he juked safety Chris Conte out of his shoes as he cut on an out route. Cobb was wide open for an easy touchdown. After weeks of poor play and low results where Cobb didn't look like his old self, he looked fantastic against the Chicago Bears.

2014 Week 5 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 34 / 1 rec)

Randall Cobb didn't get targeted much, but in part that's because quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a grand total of 17 passes and the whole first unit was done by the end of the third quarter. He made the most of his chances though, catching all three including a 20-yard catch and another for a touchdown. On the touchdown play, Rodgers had plenty of time and while Cobb ran deep into the end zone and then cut across the back of it. Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn fell behind Cobb and left him enough room for Rodgers to throw a perfect pass towards the corner and into Cobb's hands for an 8-yard touchdown. On the 20-yard reception Cobb ran a nice post route, finding space between the linebackers who had dropped into coverage and the safety stepping up to cover him. Overall Cobb may not have seen the ball much, but showed he can still produce on small target totals.

2014 Week 6 vs MIA (7 / 5 / 58 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Despite his diminutive stature, Cobb has become a real threat in the red zone. On 3rd-and-goal from the five, Rodgers was immediately under pressure and scrambled right to his right to buy time. Cobb frantically tried to elude his man, first heading left and then breaking back to the right as he saw Rodgers heading that direction. He was able to come wide open just in time to give Rodgers an easy target as they hooked up for a TD for the seventh time this season. Cobb had a couple big catches early. On the first drive of the game, he ran a sharp out route to the right sideline and grabbed a perfectly placed Rodgers pass for a 28-yard gain. He also had a big 14-yard gain on a back shoulder throw down the left sideline early in the 2nd quarter. Cobb had one carry on an end around that went nowhere as the Dolphins were not fooled and Cobb had no room at all to make a play.
