BALTIMORE, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Aaron Rodgers threw for a touchdown and Green Bay's defense recorded five sacks Sunday, elevating the Packers to a 19-17 win over Baltimore.

Rodgers completed 17-of-32 passes for 315 yards with a interception despite the injury absences of top receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones.

Jordy Nelson helped pick up the slack with a 64-yard TD reception in the third quarter, finishing with 113 yards on four receptions for Green Bay (3-2), which notched a second straight win.

On defense, the Packers executed a key goal-line stand late in the game to preserve the victory.

Joe Flacco tossed for 342 yards with two touchdowns as the Super Bowl champion Ravens (3-3) fell at home for only the fourth time in 20 games.
