What the Green Bay Packers fourth-year wide receiver is concerned about is the limited number of big plays the offense has generated during the three-game losing streak that has coincided with quarterback Aaron Rodgers' collarbone injury.
Davante Adams and Danny Trevathan haven't actually spoken since the Green Bay Packers receiver ended up in the hospital because of the hit the Chicago Bears linebacker put on him in the season's first meeting. Brett Hundley is completing 61.5 percent of his passes for 701 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
Two deep clutch throws to Davante Adams in the 4th quarter - one a touchdown, the second a throw that put the Packers in scoring range late in the game - helped clinch the win.More news: Vidya Balan shuts the reporter like a boss for fat shaming her
Cobb told reporters earlier in the week it was on him and the rest of the receivers to break more tackles and extend plays. The Packers looked sharp last week, as Hundley had the best game of his career, the defense took away the Bears bread and butter and running back Jamaal Williams shined in place of the injured Jones.
Mitchell Trubisky threw for a career-high 297 yards in his fifth National Football League start, including a gorgeous 46-yard touchdown pass to Josh Bellamy in the fourth quarter.

Upon viewing the replay, officials ruled he had fumbled at the 1, so it was a touchback and Green Bay's ball. Shortly thereafter, Montgomery left with a rib injury and didn't return. In two starts and three games since Rodgers' injury, Hundley had yet to lead the Packers to a win.
Instead, he kept his eyes downfield and found a hole to sneak a pass to Adams in the corner of the Bears' end zone for the 19-yard touchdown. After scrambling for 17 yards on third-and-2 from Chicago's 37, Hundley could've easily tucked it again when he escaped the pocket two plays later.
"You just have to remove yourself from (thinking about the contract) and think about putting good film together", Adams said. Defensively, the Packers are yielding 23.o points and 353.6 total yards (242.6 in passing and 111.0 in rushing) per game. "Anybody can take off and run". "I think he'll probably be the one to initiate". But throwing a great ball back-shoulder like that to an open guy is (great). "It's not a drop, but it's definitely a play-making opportunity that I've got to make".More news: Honor V10 to launch in China on November 28
Overall it was a huge win and it keeps the Packers on the playoff fringe. While the drive didn't result in points - there was a bobbled snap on a field-goal try - it did eat up the clock and the remainder of the Bears' timeouts. Only a botched Mason Crosby field goal prevented the team from icing the game then and there. "It's great to see", Nelson said. "I've never anxious about my job security, and I won't start any minute going forward". "But it was a big-time throw and big-time catch at a crucial moment".
