Balanced Packers beat free-falling Cardinals

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Tom Crabtree had a 72-yard touchdown that was Green Bay's longest of the season, and Randall Cobb added two scoring catches as the Packers got a 31-17 victory that handed the Arizona Cardinals their fifth consecutive loss Sunday.

The Packers (6-3) finished with a season-high 176 rushing yards on 39 carries, the first time in a month they've cracked the century mark.

James Jones also had a touchdown reception, his career-high eighth of the season, and Green Bay goes into its bye week with a four-game winning streak.

The break comes at a good time for the Packers, who lost linebacker Clay Matthews, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga and tight end D.J. Williams to injuries.

John Skelton was 23-of-46 passing for 306 yards, his most passing yardage since last December. But repeated drops by the Cardinals' receivers kept Arizona (4-5) from having any consistent offense.
