>>Packers Hold Off Giants
 
Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes, and the Green Bay Packers offensive line pushed around the New York Giants' front and powered the ground game in a 23-16 win on Sunday night over the New York Giants.
Rodgers was 23 of 45 for 259 yards and also threw two interceptions. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams each had highlight-reel touchdown catches to help the Packers (3-1) build an 11-point halftime lead.
 
New York's Eli Manning was 18 of 35 for 199 yards and was sacked three times.
 
The Giants (2-3) looked out of sorts until a hurry-up drive that ended with Beckham's 8-yard touchdown catch with 2:54 left.
 
Randall Cobb was the Packers' most consistent receiver with nine catches for 108 yards. 
 
Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins had two interceptions in the first half, one coming on third-and-6 at the Giants 21 after a pass deflected off Nelson's hands . It was Jenkins' first two-interception game since his rookie season with St. Louis, when he had two against Arizona on Nov. 25, 2012.
 
Lacy left late in the third quarter with a left ankle injury. He had 81 yards on 11 carries, including 77 yards on nine carriers in the first half.
 
>>Colts Hold Off Bears
 
Andrew Luck threw a 35-yard TD pass to T.Y. Hilton with 3:43 left Sunday to lead the Indianapolis Colts past the Chicago Bears 29-23.
 
It's the first time the Colts (2-3) defeated the Bears in Indianapolis.
 
After hearing a clamoring for changes all week, Indy went to the hurry-up offense and Luck made the alterations look good early and late.
 
When the Colts opened up the passing game and took shots down the field, they were efficient. When they didn't, they bogged down.
 
The result: Indy had its first halftime lead of the season, 16-13, and when they fell behind midway through the third quarter, the Colts turned up the pace again. This time, Luck needed six plays to move 82 yards - the last 35 coming on the TD pass to Hilton that gave Indy a 26-23 lead.
 
Luck finished 28 of 39 with 322 yards and two touchdowns. Hilton had 10 catches for 171 yards.
 
Brian Hoyer was solid in his third straight start and gave Chicago (1-4) a 23-19 lead by capping a 94-yard drive with a 24-yard TD pass to Jordan Howard to make it 23-19 with 7:04 to go. It was the Bears' longest drive in more than seven years.
 
Hoyer was 33 of 43 for 397 yards with two touchdowns.
 
But after a late Bears fumble led to Adam Vinatieri's fifth field goal, Hoyer couldn't convert on fourth-and-8 from Indy's 28-yard line.
