Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes, two to Randall Cobb, as the Green Bay Packers kept their winning streak going with a 31-17 victory over the reeling Arizona Cardinals.

Rodgers only completed 14-of-30 passes for 218 yards with an interception, but connected with Tom Crabtree on a crucial 72-yard score after the Cardinals pulled within seven late in the third quarter.

Green Bay had a rare advantage in the running game, outgaining Arizona, 176-54, on the ground.

The Packers (6-3) head into their much-needed bye week riding a four-game win streak. Already without several key players due to injury, Green Bay saw linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring), wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ankle) and offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (hip) all exit early.

Arizona (4-5) is also off next week, but it must recover from a different kind of ailment -- a debilitating five-game skid after starting the season 4-0.

John Skelton was 23-of-46 through the air for 306 yards with an interception and a touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald in defeat.
