GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers went back to an old favorite, connecting with Donald Driver on a 4-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to seal Green Bay's 24-15 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Rodgers threw for two touchdowns, passing Bart Starr for second place on Green Bay's all-time list, and Dezman Moses gave the Packers their first touchdown on a blocked punt in almost 22 years. But Green Bay (5-3) had a surprisingly tough time with Jacksonville (1-6), which lost its fourth in a row.

Playing without top receivers Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, the Packers' offense struggled to find its groove all afternoon. The Jaguars, meanwhile, looked unfazed by the absence of Maurice Jones-Drew. Backup Rashad Jennings finished with 115 yards of offense, and Cecil Shorts had a career-best 116 yards on eight catches.
