GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - A new helmet was just part of the story for Aaron Rodgers, who tied a career high with 4 touchdown passes en route to a Green Bay Packers 45-17 pounding of the New York Giants at Lambeau Field Sunday.
Rodgers, after missing last week's loss to the New England Patriots, came back with a hot hand, finishing 25-of-37 for 404 yards and zero interceptions. A big 80-yarder came early in the game to Jordy Nelson, who found a giant hole in the defense.
Greg Jennings had a big day, finishing with 7 catches for 142 yards. John Kuhn, also had a monster game for the Packers (9-6), finishing with 6 carries for 22 yards and 2 touchdowns, adding a third TD receiving.
The Giants' (9-6) stumble from grace continued, with six turnovers, including 4 Eli Manning interceptions.
The Packers can ensure a Wild Card birth with a win over the Chicago Bears next Sunday at Lambeau Field. Meantime, the Giants who needed a win to make the playoffs, now need help to get in.
