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 13: vs New England Patriots

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Aaron Rodgers and company took a break from utterly burying the opposition last week at Minnesota - Rodgers had his first game under 300 yards passing over the last four contests played, with 19/29 for 209 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions passing during the 24-21 win over Minnesota. Not quite in the style of the 53-20 shellacking meted out to Philadelphia two weeks ago (22/36 for 341 yards passing, three TDs with zero interceptions thrown for Rodgers), but a 'W' is a 'W'. As usual, Jordy Nelson (22 targets for 12/177/1 receiving) and Randall Cobb (18 for 14/187/0) have seen the most targets over the last two games played, but Eddie Lacy (six for 5/58/2) and Davante Adams (six for 3/23/1) have been factors when it comes to six-point plays. It's all good for the Packers in this phase of the game. Another nuclear-hot NFL team, the Patriots, are coming to play at Lambeau Field on Sunday. They've held the Lions to just three field goals (Matthew Stafford threw 18/46 for 244 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception at New England, while taking two sacks for - 20 yards) and limited the Colts' offensive machine to 20 points (allowing 23/39 for 303 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown to Andrew Luck, while sacking him once for zero yards lost). To date, the Patriots average 242.1 net passing yards allowed per game (17th in the NFL), with 18 passing scores handed out vs. 12 interceptions (eighth in the NFL) and 25 sacks (tied for 16th) generated. The Patriots are outscoring their opponents most of the time, but their pass D doesn't shut down opposing passers - at Lambeau field this week, we think this is a good matchup for the high-octane Packers - this game has the look of a shootout to us.

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.

2014 Week 12 vs MIN (5 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec)

After watching the last few weeks of Packers game film, the Vikings coaching staff decided to work on shutting down both Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. They were somewhat successful in both areas, particularly in the case of Cobb who had a hard time getting free from coverage. Aaron Rodgers mostly turned his attention elsewhere. Cobb's best play of the day came late in the first quarter on a post route where Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn had pretty good coverage on the play. Cobb was able to get a step on Munnerlyn, but Rodgers still needed to thread a needle to get the ball to him. Cobb made a nice catch, kept his feet, jumped over a defender and gained another four or five yards before tripping and falling to the turf.
