After sitting out last week with a concussion, Aaron Rodgers returned to the
Rodgers passed for 404 yards and 4 touchdowns, completing 25 of 37 passes and finishing with a quarterback rating of 139.9. His 404 yards were the most by a Packers quarterback since Lynn Dickey threw for 418 against Tampa Bay in 1980.
Rodgers completed passes to 9 different receivers and both Greg Jennings (142) and Jordy Nelson (124) topped 100 yards receiving.
The Packers offensive line did a good job of blocking for the run and the pass. Coach Mike McCarthy said they simply won the battle in the trenches.
On the flip side, the Packers defense forced six turnovers, including 4 interceptions of Eli Manning. They held running backs Ahmad Bradshaw (31 yards) and Brandon Jacobs (47 yards) in check and linebacker AJ Hawk said that was the game plan. Stop the run and get turnovers.
John Kuhn scored three touchdowns for the Packers, who improved to 9-6. They still control their own destiny as well. A Green Bay win on Sunday over Chicago and the Packers are in the playoffs as a wild card. If Chicago wins, the Packers are most likely out.
