Cardinals vs Packers score update: Arizona trailing, 7-0, after Rodgers touchdown pass

Aaron Rodgers' 13-yard pass to Randall Cobb to cap an 11-play, 84-yard drive gave the Green Bay Packers the first score of the game in their Sunday afternoon showdown with the Arizona Cardinals as the Packers lead, 7-0, at the end of the first quarter.

Both teams had struggled to get offense going early on, including a missed field goal from the Packers' Mason Crosby. Cardinals quarterback John Skelton has been inconsistent so far, completing three passes in the first quarter for 29 yards.

LaRod Stephens-Howling has been the key rusher for the Cardinals with the absence of Beanie Wells, and has rushed for 21 yards in the first quarter of Sunday's meeting. Stephens-Howling has also accounted for some of Skelton's passing yards, having hauled in a 14-yard completion from the quarterback.

Rodgers has been held in check in the first quarter, completing about half of his passes to go with his touchdown to Cobb.
