Packers 27 Steelers 17: The Return of Randall Cobb
Randall Cobb was a player that many liked in Green Bay. He is a great dude so this is not surprising. He was a true fan favorite along with his buddy Jordy Nelson. They’re two of the more well-liked Packers players of the last 20 years. When Cobb returned to the Packers, people were excited mostly. On Sunday, we saw what Cobb could do in this offense. Green Bay utilized him in key third downs along with two touchdown receptions to help the Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 27-17. Here’s my review of the game that includes platitudes for Cobb.

When Cobb got brought in by Aaron Rodgers, my thought was he tried to help his buddy. Cobb would have ended up playing with the Houston Texans. A team that got beat 40-0 this week. I thought there wasn’t much left for the wide receive even though Cobb is not that old, 28 years old. I was wrong. Cobb is an asset and someone who will become more involved in this offense as the season goes on. Rodgers is looking very right in his assessment that Cobb could help the team this year.
Also mentioned in the review is the defense. They played great in this one with only allowing 17 points overall and forcing two turnovers. It is the second time this season that the defense allowed less than 20 points. Yes, it’s against a lifeless Steelers offense, and a Lions offense that cannot finish drives like a 22-year-old boy who can’t bring home a girl from the bar, but still, it’s impressive nonetheless. They did some great things out there without key players like Za’Darius Smith and losing Jaire Alexander late. T
