Aaron Rodgers is perhaps the best player in the NFL, and as such, it's easy to give him a majority of the credit when the Packers' offense is clicking.
Rodgers had three touchdowns in the first half against the Cardinals, but the incredible efforts of his receivers were the main reason this time.
Cobb's touchdown was a beautiful over-the-shoulder grab with cornerback William Gay raking at his arms from behind.
That was Cobb's second touchdown of the half, and he did almost all of the heavy lifting on the first. Cobb took a short pass from Rodgers on third-and-goal at the 13-yard line and somehow avoided being tackled on his way to the end zone.
Jones' touchdown came late in the half and was a great athletic play. He leaped over the cornerback, somehow got control of the ball as he came down, and scored on the 28-yard catch to give Green Bay a 21-7 halftime lead.
Rodgers threw some very nice passes to give his receivers chances on both acrobatic scoring grabs, but in the first half, his receivers deserved to take a bow.
