That was first blocked punt since 2003 and the first blocked punt for a TD since1990 when Tiger Greene had a scoop and score. The Jaguars actually outgained Green Bay 341-238 on the day. The win improves the Packers to 5-3 on the season. They will host Arizona next Sunday before heading into the Bye.
