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.

Recent Game Summaries

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.

2014 Week 7 vs CAR (7 / 6 / 121 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

Cobb and Rodgers only failed to connect on one of seven attempts, as a throw sailed a little too high for Cobb to catch it. As was the case all day, Cobb was still wide open and had found a way to gain some separation on the coverage. Cobb ran some very adept routes and sometimes just found himself open because the play lasted longer than the defenders could hold contain. One example of that was on a pass in the middle of the second quarter. On the play, Rodgers scrambled to his right. Cobb ended up splitting two defenders and when Rodgers saw him get open, quickly delivered the ball. After that we got to see how dangerous Cobb can be with the ball in his hands. Cobb shook two defenders, then ran across the field to take advantage of a block. He then turned upfield and accelerated. Cobb was finally forced out of bounds after a 47-yard gain. Cobb's touchdown was also well executed, as he ran a short out while simultaneously forcing space between himself and the defender. By the time the defender was able to react, the ball was in Cobb's hands and in the end zone.

2014 Week 8 vs NO (7 / 5 / 126 / 1 rec)

For the first time in a few weeks Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson didn't both go off, with Cobb getting the big play and having more luck finding open space against the New Orleans Saints. He got 70 yards on his touchdown, compiling 50 more throughout the rest of the game when the Saints were able to tighten coverage while also pressuring Aaron Rodgers, who was suffering from a hamstring issue in the second half. The play came on a 3rd and 10, with just over 13 minutes in the first quarter. The Packers had four receivers out wide, with a single man to the left and "trips" (or three men) right and the Saints brought just four men on a pass rush, dropping their linebackers in coverage. Cornerback Keenan Lewis was alone on Cobb, who ran an out and up along the sideline, which turned Lewis around. Rodgers scramble bought him the time he needed for Cobb to get open enough to make the catch and run the last 35 yards for the touchdown. Cobb played well overall, but there came a point when there wasn't enough time to break open and Rodgers, hampered by his hamstring injury, couldn't stretch the play.

Packers | Randall Cobb in a groove (Thu Oct 23, 09:04 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels much better about his level of play in recent weeks than he did at the start of the year. 'You just kind of get in a zone,' Cobb said. 'It's like a runner's high, or writing an exam paper and you're on page 7, and the next thing you know you're on page 12. It's just one of those things where you continue to press on, and things happen.'
