Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes in the snow and the Packers (9-3) rebounded from an embarrassing 29-point loss to San Francisco and beat the New York Giants 31-13 Sunday.

 

Rodgers was 21 of 33 for 243 yards and no interceptions on a slippery, snowy day at MetLife Stadium.

Rodgers hit Davante Adams on touchdown passes of 8 and 17 yards, found a wide-open Allen Lazard for 37 yards and capped the performance with a 1-yarder to Marcedes Lewis. The Packers also intercepted rookie Daniel Jones three times, with the picks setting up 10 points.

 

The loss sent the Giants (2-10) to their eighth straight loss, their worst skid since 2004.

 

Jones was 20 of 37 for 240 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard.

 

Aldrick Rosas added field goals of 27 and 45 yards for New York, which has a 7-21 mark since Pat Shurmur took over last season.

 

A light snow started falling before game time and it quickly covered the field, forcing work crews to shovel the yardage lines during breaks. It also made it look like Wisconsin, and the Packers had no problem in beating New York for the third straight time.

 

The Packers return home to play Washington next Sunday.
