A fan spilled ketchup on the receiver's uniform during his post-touchdown celebration in the second quarter of Green Bay's 38-17 win Sunday over the Carolina Panthers.
Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, Cobb torched the Carolina secondary for 121 yards and a score on six catches and Green Bay dominated after building a 28-3 lead at halftime.
Cobb said it might have been the team's most complete performance of the season.
"It definitely was a great game for us offensively, being able to put things together the way we did with the run, with the pass, play-action," Cobb said. "So as long as we can continue to execute the game plan and make plays, we're going to continue to have these types of wins."
It even makes the ketchup bath worth it.
"I apologize to whoever's hot dog that was. It was fresh. I know that because I had all of the ketchup on me," Cobb said.
Newton, who had a career-high 17 carries last week, had 41 yards rushing on seven attempts. He passed for 205 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown for Carolina (3-3-1).
"What I did wasn't good enough and I understand that," Newton said.
His Packers counterpart was masterful against the Carolina defense. The 2011 MVP was 19 of 22 for 255 yards before leaving early in the fourth quarter with the game well in hand.
"We had 21 first-quarter points ... which made them one-dimensional," Rodgers said, "especially with the way that Cam ran the ball last week."
It was Rodgers' sixth straight game without an interception, tying Bart Starr for the franchise record set in 1964.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers is much better than three seasons ago. Rodgers thought he could do more.
"It's a well-developed offense. They have great communication," Rivera said. "That's what Aaron Rodgers has developed with his players."
Packers fans still celebrated with their team up by 28, belting out a hearty chorus of the "Beer Barrel Polka" during the break.
"It was an excellent read by Aaron," McCarthy said. "Big-play production - that's how you win in this league."
Green Bay's next drive ended with Lacy high-stepping his way for a 5-yard touchdown and a 14-0 lead with 5:53 left in the first quarter.
Carolina's frustration mounted as the deficit grew.
The linebacker calmed down when he turned around and saw the official, who threw a flag with about two minutes left in the quarter. Kuechly said he didn't mean to do it.
