Packers Crush Giants to Keep Playoff Hopes Alive


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers threw for 404 yards and four touchdowns in his return from a concussion and the Green Bay Packers beat the struggling New York Giants 45-17 at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

The loss leaves the Giants (9-6) clinging to fading playoff hopes and wondering if there was a hangover effect from the previous week's collapse against Philadelphia. New York's turnover issues continued Sunday, as the Giants lost two fumbles and Eli Manning threw four interceptions.

John Kuhn ran for two touchdowns and caught a pass for a score for the Packers (9-6), who came into Sunday's game needing to win their final two games to make the playoffs.

Rodgers sat out last Sunday's loss at New England with his second concussion of the season.
