First Quarter

Rams 3, Packers 0

Greg Zuerlein, 50-yard field goal, 7:38.

Keys: Starting with good field position, Sam Bradford completed a 15-yard pass to Brandon Gibson, who beat rookie cornerback Casey Hayward across the middle on third-and-10 to keep the drive moving. Another Bradford dump-off to Daryl Richardson set up Zuerlein's kick, which had plenty of distance.

Drive: 7 plays, 23 yards, 3:03.

Packers 7, Rams 3

Jordy Nelson, 3-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers (Mason Crosby kick), 5:23.

Keys: Rodgers found Nelson three times on the drive for 70 yards, including a 52-yard pass on a free play on third-and-3 to get to the Rams' 6-yard line. Two plays later, Rodgers found him in the corner of the end zone with Nelson hauling in the pass over Matthew Daniels.

Drive: 5 plays, 80 yards, 2:15.

Packers 10, Rams 3

Crosby, 47-yard field goal, 2:17.

Keys: The Packers surprised the Rams on the ensuing kickoff with an onside attempt, which linebacker Jamari Lattimore recovered after Jarrett Bush blew up Trumaine Johnson to give the Packers the ball in St. Louis territory. Randall Cobb had a 19-yard run to set up Crosby's field goal.

Drive: 6 plays, 20 yards, 3:06.

Second quarter

Packers 10, Rams 6

Zuerlein, 43-yard field goal, 0:40.

Keys: Bradford and veteran running back Steven Jackson keyed another long drive in a second quarter dominated by the Rams' offense, but again sputtered inside Packers territory. Unlike earlier in the game when St. Louis opted to go for it on fourth-and-2, Jeff Fisher sent on Zuerlein to cut the deficit to four.

Drive: 12 plays, 65 yards, 5:22.

Third quarter

Packers 17, Rams 6

Cobb, 5-yard pass from Rodgers (Crosby kick), 8:04.

Keys: While the Packers struggled to run the ball, Rodgers turned in a perfect 7-for-7 drive for 67 yards and completed three passes on third down to keep the drive moving en route to the back-end-zone pass to Cobb.

Drive: 12 plays, 80 yards, 6:56.

Fourth quarter

Packers 20, Rams 6

Crosby, 23-yard field goal, 11:52.

Keys: After Casey Hayward's fourth interception of the season, the Packers continued to dominate time of possession on a 10-play drive that ate up more than 4 minutes. Nelson caught another first-down pass from Rodgers before picking up an unnecessary roughness call from Cortland Finnegan in coverage.

Drive: 10 plays, 37 yards, 4:25.

Packers 20, Rams 13

Jackson, 6-yard run (Zuerlein kick), 8:50.

Keys: Despite not being on the field for most of the second half, the Rams' offense exploded on the drive following Crosby's field goal, beginning with a 56-yard bubble screen to Chris Givens on the first play of the series.

Drive: 6 plays, 80 yards, 3:02.

Packers 27, Rams 13

Cobb, 39-yard pass from Rodgers (Crosby kick), 3:06.

Keys: Rodgers hit Cobb three times for 58 yards, including the touchdown pass off a free play. Rolling out to his left on the play, Rodgers threw against his body over double coverage and into the hands of Cobb to seal the win.

Drive: 10 plays, 80 yards, 5:44.

Packers 30, Rams 13

Crosby, 48-yard field goal, 1:49.

Keys: The Rams went four-and-out deep in their territory to give the Packers the ball at the St. Louis 28. Rodgers tried a deep end-zone pass to James Jones on third-and-12, but couldn't keep his feet in bounds en route to Crosby's kick.

Drive: 4 plays, minus-2 yards, 0:18.

Packers 30, Rams 20

Austin Pettis, 3-yard pass from Sam Bradford (Zuerlein kick), 0:15.

Keys: Steve Smith caught a 10-yard pass from Bradford on fourth-and-6 to move the ball to the Packers' 3 before Bradford found Pettis on the corner fade route over Davon House.

Drive: 10 plays, 77 yards, 1:34.
