Packers Pace Buccaneers

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(TAMPA BAY) -- The Green Bay Packers took care of business Sunday with a 20-3 win over the Buccaneers.

Aaron Rodgers continued his magnificent season, picking apart the Bucs secondary, completing 31 of 40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown.

Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson proved to be the reliable targets that Rodgers has trusted all seasons. Cobb caught 11 passes for 131 yards and Nelson 9 passes for 113 yards and the one Packers aerial touchdown.

Eddie Lacy provided balance for the Packers offense, rushing for 99 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries. 

The Packers' defense clamped down on Tampa Bay, as they held Bucs running back Doug Martin to 17 yards on the ground and kept Josh McCown in check. McCown threw for just 147 yards and tossed an interception.

The Packers host the Detroit Lions next week, with the winner earning the NFC North title.

Rodgers Outduels Brady in Win Over Patriots

Rodgers Outduels Brady in Win Over Patriots

Tom Lynn /Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wisc.) -- The Green Bay Packers went up 13-0 in the first quarter and held on late as Aaron Rodgers outdueled Tom Brady, beating the New England Patriots 26-21 on Sunday afternoon. The matchup was the first ever meeting between two of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.

The Packers (9-3) got a pair of Mason Crosby field goals to open the scoring, before Rodgers found Richard Rodgers for a 32-yard touchdown pass and a 13-0 advantage. New England (9-3) got on the board quickly in the second with a 6-yard run from Brandon Bolden, making it a 13-7 game. After a third Crosby field goal the two teams traded touchdown passes, giving Green Bay a 23-14 lead at halftime.

A scoreless third quarter set up a dramatic final frame with the Patriots closing the gap almost immediately. Just over a minute into the period, Brady connected with Brandon LaFell on a 15-yard scoring play that brough New England within two at 23-21. Crosby would add another field goal, his fourth of the game, to make it a five point lead with less than nine minutes remaining in regulation.

New England looked to drive down the field and had a 3rd-and-nine at the Packers 20-yard line. Brady, who had not been sacked all game, was brought down for a 9-yard loss. That was followed by a missed field goal from Stephen Gostkowski, giving the ball back to Green Bay. With no timeouts, the Patriots could not stop the clock as the Packers improved to 6-0 at home.

Both quarterbacks performed well with each tossing a pair of touchdowns and neither throwing an interception. However, Rodgers was 24-for-38 for 368 yards while Brady was just 22-for-35 for only 245 yards.

Rodgers Ties NFL Record in Packers Rout

Rodgers Ties NFL Record in Packers Rout

Tom Lynn /Getty Images(GREEN BAY Wisc.) -- Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record by throwing six touchdowns in the first half as Green Bay walloped the Chicago Bears 55-14 on Sunday night at Lambeau Field. The Packers (6-3) jumped out to a 45-0 lead before Chicago (3-6) finally got on the board in the third quarter.

"We just kind of got things going our way," Rodgers said. "The line did a good job of giving me time to extend plays. If you extend plays, you look down the field and there's Jordy Nelson. He made some nice catches."

Nelson had six catches for 152 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Rodgers' six touchdown passes tied the Green Bay record for most scoring tosses in a game, while also tying Daryle Lamonica's NFL record for most touchdown passes in a half, which he set in 1969 while playing for Oakland.

All six of the Packers' scores in the first half came from a Rodgers pass. It began with a 1-yard strike to Brandon Bostick in the first and included scoring plays of 73, 56, and 40-yards. Chicago finally found the end zone when Jay Cutler hit Brandon Marshall for a 45-yard touchdown in the first half. 

Rodgers finished the day with 325 passing yards in the win while Cutler tossed one touchdown for 272 yards to go along with two interceptions. Cutler's second interception was returned 82 yards by Casey Hayward for a touchdown.

Saints March Past Packers at Home

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) -- Drew Brees threw for three touchdowns while Mark Ingram ran for 172 yards and another score, helping the New Orleans Saints rout Green Bay 44-23 on Sunday night. The loss snapped the Packers (5-3) four-game winning streak while pulling the Saints (3-4) into a tie atop the NFC South.

"All we talked about all week long is just coming together as a team and playing a complete game as a team," said Brees. "It was a perfect representation of that."

Green Bay jumped on top early when Aaron Rodgers hit Randall Cobb on a 70-yard touchdown strike just two minutes into the first quarter. The Saints quickly countered with touchdown of their own, courtesy of Brandin Cooks' four-yard run. Both teams each converted three field goals in the first half, heading into halftime tied at 16-16.

The second half featured a little more defense, both teams scored on every possession in the first, but only from the Saints. After New Orleans turned the ball over on downs, the defense picked off Rodgers inside the redzone. Four plays later, Brees connected with Cooks on a 50-yard touchdown pass to put the Saints up 23-16. 

Brees would also find Jimmy Graham and Josh Hill in the end zone, giving New Orleans a 37-16 lead before the Packers finally scored in the fourth quarter. The Saints quarterback finished the game with 311 yards on 27-of-32 passing.
