GREEN BAY, Wis (WFRV) – Have yourself a day, Randall Cobb. The wide receiver had his coming out party as the Packers beat the Steelers 27-17 to improve to 3-1 on the season. Cobb had five receptions for 69 yards and 2 touchdowns.

The Packers defense really shined and stepped it up after allowing Pittsburgh to drive down the field on the first drive and score a touchdown. After that, the pass rush of Rashan Gary and the teamwork of Kingsley Keke and Kenny Clark made it hard for Ben Roethlisberger to get in a rhythm.

The Green and Gold defense limited Big Ben to one touchdown, an interception and 232 yards.

Jaire Alexander did leave the game in the second half with a shoulder injury and there is no word on how severe it is.

The Packers are on the road next in Cincinnati against the Bengals.
