Aaron Rodgers, Packers catch Titans by surprise with TD to end first quarter 8:57 PM ET Rob DemovskyESPN Staff Writer Close Covered Packers for Green Bay Press-Gazette from 1997-2013 Two-time Wisconsin Sportswriter of the Year as selected by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Five days ago, Christian Watson had zero touchdown catches. Five quarters of football later, he had four of them. He followed up his three-touchdown game last Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys with another TD in the first quarter of the Green Bay Packers ' Thursday night game against the Tennessee Titans . The last Packers' rookie receiver with at least four touchdown catches in a season was James Lofton, who had six in 1978. And while this is all new to the rookie second-round pick, it came on a play that's old hat for Aaron Rodgers . Rodgers caught the Titans with 12 men on the field and floated the ball to Watson on the left side of the end zone for a contested catch over cornerback Kristian Fulton . It was the 17th career touchdown pass of Rodgers' career on free plays -- either defensive offsides or too many men on the field. It was Rodgers' first such touchdown of the season and first since last Christmas against the Cleveland Browns . No one else has more than five such touchdowns since 2008. The Titans blocked the extra point to take a 7-6 into the second quarter.
