Titans vs. Packers results: Green Bay thrashes Tennessee

USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers cruised to a 55-7 win against the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers played nearly a perfect game on Sunday and the Tennessee Titans did themselves no favors in a dominating 55-7 win for the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Aaron Rodgers completed 71 percent of his passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns while running for another, and the Packers won the turnover battle with two interceptions of Titans quarterback Jake Locker to make it a laugher. Tennessee only reached the red zone once, scoring on a Locker pass to Kenny Britt with 1:42 left in the game.

Otherwise, it was all Packers.

Tennessee compiled just 180 total yards to Green bay's 460 and as such struggled with field position. Twenty-seven points by the Packers came on drives of less than 50 yards, but they also put up scoring drives of 56, 60, 71 and 80 yards. That came despite Green Bay converting just 2-of-11 third down situations.

Though Green Bay found ease in moving the ball via the pass -- they had 18 passing first downs to nine rushing -- running back Ryan Grant took 20 carries for 80 yards and two second-half touchdowns.

Winners: Green Bay's receivers. The Titans had no formula in coverage, as five Packers caught at least three balls with James Jones leading the way. He had seven catches for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Losers: Titans quarterback Jake Locker was about as bad as Rodgers was good, completing just 13 of 30 passes for 140 yards while throwing two picks and one meaningless touchdown.

Reaction:

Video: Green Bay's Randall Cobb took advantage of a little-known rule, as Sports Illustrated explains with the help of this GIF from Guyism.com. On a kick return, the ball died short of the end zone, and Cobb picked the ball up while standing out of bounds. By rule, the ball is also out of bounds, which flagged the Titans for kicking it astray.

Best stat of the game: The 55 points put up by Green Bay was the most since a game against Tampa Bay in 1983.

Worst stat of the game: The 48-point loss was the third-worst in Titans/Oilers franchise history.

Fantasy stud: Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers was cooking all game long, completing 27 of 38 passes for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions before being yanked for backup Graham Harrell.

Odds: The Packers beat the spread that opened at 11 points in their favor and then some.

Injury info: Titans running back Chris Johnson left the game with an ankle sprain and was questionable to return.

Green Bay's Randall Cobb also hurt his ankle and was questionable cornerback Davon House hurt his shoulder on a punt return and was questionable to return.

Next up: The Titans close the season at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday while the Packers head to face the Minnesota Vikings.
