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 12: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Green Bay blasted the Vikings 42-10 back in Week 5 - Aaron Rodgers threw TD passes to all three of his top wide receivers (three targets for 1/66/1 receiving for Jordy Nelson; four for 3/34/1 for Randall Cobb; four for 1/11/1 flowing to Davante Adams), and then watched Eddie Lacy seal the deal with two third-quarter TD rushes (after which the first team sat out and Matt Flynn led the Packers the rest of the way to an easy blowout win). A lot of NFL teams have received the Rodgers/Nelson/Cobb/Adams/Flynn-in-late treatment this season - most recently, they bombed Philadelphia 53-20 with 24/38 for 365 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown. Cobb led the team in receiving with 13 targets for 10/129/0 receiving, while Nelson handled 10 targets for 4/109/1, followed by Eddie Lacy (four for 3/45/1). Adams also notched another TD with two targets for 2/13/1 receiving. It's all good for the Packers in this phase of the game, folks. The Vikings' pass D is ranked eighth in the NFL averaging 225.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 17 passing TDs given up vs. 10 interceptions (tied for tenth in the NFL) and 30 sacks recorded to date (tied-third). Jay Cutler had his way with this group last week, though, throwing 31/43 for 330 yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions (zero sacks taken), while Robert Griffin III was sacked five times for -25 yards two games ago en route to 18/28 for 225 net yards passing, one TD thrown and one interception given up. Green Bay's offense is on a roll, while the Vikings' secondary got burned last week - advantage, Green Bay.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs CHI (6 / 4 / 72 / 1 rec)

For the most part, Cobb had a good night, making some good catches while running precise routes. Aaron Rodgers had plenty of time to wait for his receivers to get open and multiple times Cobb found a way to gain separation on the coverage. If there was one downside to his night, it was the fumble at the goal line in the second quarter. On the pay, Cobb ran a shallow slant, and Rodgers hit him with a pass immediately. Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was there to tackle him immediately, though Cobb dragged him for another yard. While that was happening, Lance Briggs came in and hit Cobb and the ball, which came loose. The ball shot into the end zone and was recovered by the Bears. Cobb made up for it a short time later, at the end of the first half, when he made a fantastic one-handed catch for a touchdown. On the play, Cobb had a step on the defender, cornerback Demontre Hurst, but Hurst was still in decent position. Rodgers had to deliver a perfectly thrown ball, which Cobb had to go up for. He caught the ball with just one hand, securing it as he hit the ground for a touchdown.

2014 Week 11 vs PHI (13 / 10 / 129 / 0 rec)

Cobb had a ridiculous game, finding the soft spot in the Eagles defense over and over and presenting Aaron Rodgers with a great (and wide open) target all afternoon. As usual, Cobb did a great job adding yards after the play, which made the fact that Philadelphia kept leaving him open or giving him cushions pretty baffling. While Cobb failed to find the end zone (though Rodgers did target him in it), he was very productive otherwise and was really successful.
