Rams vs. Packers final score: Aaron Rodgers overpowers Steven Jackson and St. Louis, 30-20

The St. Louis Rams could only hold back Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers so long. In the first half of their Week 7 matchup—the last one before the Rams head to London to take on the New England PatriotsSam Bradford and company couldn't score but they could hang on to the ball, giving Aaron Rodgers just 15 pass attempts and leaving the score a manageable 10-6 at halftime.

Then the Packers got the ball in the third quarter, and it was over. Rodgers was stupendous, finishing 30-for-37 with 342 yards and three touchdown, and the Packers won by a final score of 30-20 after a solid garbage-time march downfield for Sam Bradford. Steven Jackson led the way for the Rams, carrying the ball 12 times for 57 yards and his first touchdown of the season, while Bradford finished 21-for-34 with 255 yards, a touchdown (to Austin Pettis, the first of his career), and an interception.

The Rams go on to London, as they do the Cleveland Spiders forced-into-neutral-sites orphaned-team routine for the first time. The Packers, in Week 8, will head home to face the 1-4 Jacksonville Jaguars.
