Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers run St. Louis Rams ragged in 2nd half

in the first half, Aaron Rodgers was perfect but limited as the St. Louis Rams kept the Green Bay Packers' offense off the field. 165 yards on 15 plays, with one touchdown. In the second half the Rams found themselves unable to keep him on the field, and he was suddenly just perfect, 13-for-16 with 103 yards and another touchdown in a little over a full quarter as the Rams trail with fewer than 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Packers now have the time-of-possession lead, despite the Rams leading big in that category at the half.

The primary beneficiary has been Jordy Nelson, who's now up to eight receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown. The Rams' offense has been solid, especially on the ground, but they can't keep up with the Packers unless they find a way to keep them off the field. Sam Bradford is 13-for-20 for 164 yards and an interception, and while Steven Jackson and Daryl Richardson have 20 carries for 93 yards, they can't carry the load against a quarterback like Aaron Rodgers.

In the 4th quarter, the Rams having just scored with around nine minutes to go, the Packers lead by a score of 20-13.
