Jennings surging as target for Aaron Rodgers


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- When Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings learned that his wife, Nicole, extended a Thanksgiving dinner invitation to quarterback Aaron Rodgers last weekend, he wasn't sure that was such a good idea.

Sure, Jennings has caught 32 passes for 520 yards and six touchdowns from Rodgers over the past five games, including seven receptions for 152 yards and three touchdowns in last Sunday's 31-3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. But Rodgers had also been the quarterback during Jennings' first five games, when he caught only 14 passes for 183 yards and three TDs.

Rodgers declined the invitation because he has dinner at his neighbor's house every Thanksgiving, but he's certainly glad to be on good terms with his No. 1 target again entering Sunday's game against NFC-leading Atlanta.
