Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) – Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers
used another big first half to stay hot at a chilly Lambeau Field with a
commanding 53-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Rodgers, who threw six first-half touchdowns last week in a 55-14 blowout of
the Bears, threw for three touchdowns and 341 yards on a 22-of-36 completion
rate for the Packers (7-3), who improved to 5-0 at home, where they have
outscored opponents 219-85 this season.
Eddie Lacy ran for 69 yards and a score on 10 carries, while also making
three catches for 45 yards and a touchdown. Randall Cobb had a game-high 129
yards on 10 catches, Jordy Nelson made four grabs for 109 yards a score and
Davante Adams also hauled in a TD catch in the win.
It is the first time in franchise history that the Packers have scored 50-plus
points in consecutive games.
Mark Sanchez completed 26-of-44 passes for 346 yards with two touchdowns and
two interceptions for the Eagles (7-3), who gave up the most points in a game
since a 62-10 loss to the Giants on Nov. 26, 1972.
Jordan Matthews led Philadelphia receivers with five catches for 107 yards and
a score, Jeremy Maclin added a touchdown grab and 93 yards on nine catches and
LeSean McCoy ran 23 times for 88 yards in the loss.
