GREEN BAY: Aaron Rodgers, 6-yard run (Mason Crosby kick), 9:36.

JACKSONVILLE: T.J. Yeldon, 5-yard run (Jason Myers kick), 3:40 left.

GREEN BAY: Jordy Nelson, 6-yard pass from Rodgers (Crosby kick), 3:05 left. How they scored: Using a no-huddle, Rodgers found Davante Adams for 16 on an in cut against CB Prince Amukamara and Eddie Lacy, who bounced through FS Johnathan Cyprien, for 17. On second down, Nelson was alone in the middle and Rodgers, after extending the play for 5.4 seconds, gunned it to him in front of the diving Cyprien for the TD. “It was zone coverage,” FS Tashuan Gipson said. “Nelson was No. 3 receiver. He ran the under route and next thing you know he pops open. Touchdown.” The drive: Nine plays, 78 yards, 4:43. Packers 14, Jaguars 10

JACKSONVILLE: Thomas, 22-yard pass from Bortles (Myers kick), 1:09 left. How they scored: Hurns beat Rollins on a stop-and-go route for 30. “It was a double move,” said Hurns. “We liked that play in our game plan.” On third and 10, Thomas beat bump-and-run coverage by Rollins on a vertical route for the TD. “They just made plays,” said Rollins. “It happens. They get paid, too.” The drive: Seven plays, 75 yards, 1:56. Jaguars 17. Packers 14

GREEN BAY: Adams, 29-yard pass from Rodgers (Crosby kick), :13 left. How they scored: Cyprien was penalized 30 yards for interfering with Jared Cook on a vertical route. “When they both looked back for the ball and both of them were falling the ref threw the flag,” said Gipson. “ ‘Cyp’ said he looked back for the ball.” On third and 10, Rodgers ran up and was hit as he threw to Adams, who made a difficult catch with CB Davon House all over him for the TD. “It’s amazing how Aaron threw it there,” House said. “I can’t do nothing about it. I’m not going to get down on myself over that play. In a scramble situation we’re taught to turn toward our man and run where he goes. At the last minute the ball was there. Jalen (Ramsey) about had a sack. I can’t really explain it except it’s Aaron.” The drive: Five plays, 75 yards, :56. Packers 21, Jaguars 17


GREEN BAY: Crosby, 25-yard field goal, 10:12 left. How they scored: Cobb made a juggling catch for 32 on third and 10. On third and 9, Richard Rodgers beat Cyprien for 22 on a corner route that was perfectly thrown. “It was man coverage,” Richard Rodgers said. “We’ve been working on that play a lot.” Amukamara tackled Cobb after a short gain on third down and Crosby came on. The drive: Thirteen plays, 68 yards, 4:48. Packers 24, Jaguars 17

JACKSONVILLE: Myers, 39-yard field goal, 6:15 left. How they scored: On third and 7, Hurns beat LaDarius Gunter, his old teammate at Miami, across his face into the open middle of the field for 38. “It was a ‘2-Man’ beater,” Hurns said. “If the guy is playing inside I give him a nod outside and take it down the middle. We practiced that all week. I got him on that play.” Denard Robinson gained 2 on third and 2 for a first down at the 24. From there, Denard Robinson gained 3 and then Shields did well to defend a pair of passes to Allen Robinson. The drive: Ten plays, 54 yards, 3:57. Packers 24, Jaguars 20


GREEN BAY: Crosby, 20-yard field goal, 12:01 left. How they scored: Lacy ran past Gipson for 28. “He gave me a move,” Gipson said. “He’s a highly paid athlete. I wasn’t expecting him to give me a move like that. I was trying to slow him down. He’s a big guy. I tip my hat off to him. I’ve got to make those plays.” From the 6, Lacy carried twice for 4 before James Starks failed to gain. The drive: Fifteen plays, 73 yards, 9:14. Packers 27, Jaguars 20

JACKSONVILLE: Myers, 50-yard field goal, 5:12 left. How they scored: Bortles hit Allen Robinson for 22 on a fade against Shields. On fourth and 4, the Jaguars picked it up by inches on a hook to Robinson. On fourth and 3, Robinson beat Shields inside for 9 to the 29. From there, Yeldon carried for 4, Clinton-Dix broke up a seam route at the 3 to Robinson and Datone Jones beat LG Luke Joeckel on a bull rush to set up Nick Perry’s sack. Of the deflection by Clinton-Dix, Gunter said, “I was him (Robinson) streaking down the seam. That was a great play by Ha Ha. Because if he wasn’t there he would have walked in for a touchdown.” Of his big rush, Jones said, “I ran through his (expletive).” The drive: Fourteen plays, 37 yards, 6:49. Packers 27, Jaguars 23
