Jennings, Driver thrive in Packers’ passing game

SHARE Jennings, Driver thrive in Packers’ passing game

GREEN BAY, Wis. — When tight end Jermichael Finley sustained a season-ending knee injury, the most logical step for the Green Bay Packers was to focus even more intently on getting the ball to a talented group of wide receivers led by Greg Jennings and Donald Driver.

It didn't happen right away. But heading into Sunday's game at Detroit, the Packers finally are back to looking like the formidable passing offense they've always expected to be.

Jennings caught six passes for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's victory over San Francisco and Driver stole the show with a 61-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers says the Packers have rediscovered their identity on offense, and are having a "lot more fun."
