Playoff hopes alive, as Packers manhandle Giants

GREEN BAY, Wis (TSN-WSAU) Aaron Rodgers returned from a concussion to throw for 404 yards and four touchdowns, and the Green Bay Packers kept their playoff hopes alive with a 45-17 rout of the New York Giants.

Rodgers, after missing last week's loss to New England, completed 25-of-37 passes against the hapless Giants while John Kuhn scored three touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter that sealed the win.

The Packers (9-6) will make the playoffs with a win next Sunday over the Chicago Bears. The Packers-Bears game has been moved to a 3:15pm kickoff at Lambeau Field.

The loss by New York means the Eagles clinched the NFC East despite their Sunday night game against Minnesota being postponed until Tuesday because of a snow storm in Philadelphia.

The Giants (9-6) could have secured a postseason spot with a win, but suffered an embarrassing loss for the second week in a row. After giving up four touchdowns in the final eight minutes in their loss to the Eagles, they turned the ball over six times against Green Bay.

Eli Manning passed for 283 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted four times.
