In today's curds, we take a spin through the early reactions to the Packers' 19-17 win.

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 on Sunday, but the victory came at a price. Two starting wide receivers, Randall Cobb and James Jones, went down due to different knee injuries at different points in the game. We'll keep you posted as best we can on the two of them, and we should know more when Mike McCarthy talks to us this afternoon. Until then, here is what the media thought of the Packers' win.

Hawk had three sacks yesterday. The only time he had more than three sacks in an entire season was in 2006, when he had 3.5. You can count on him getting a game ball this week.

The goal-line stand was incredible. Last year, I see virtually no way they hold the line there.

Once again, because they held a lead the entire game, the Skip Baylesses of the world will ignore the fact that Aaron Rodgers and company led two game-clinching drives in the fourth quarter.

We're all breathing a little easier today with the reports that Randall Cobb's injury isn't as serious as it looked. Still, it was an ugly hit and I agree that it's partially a result of the league's crackdown on hits to defenseless receivers.
