Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Aaron Rodgers threw two touch­down passes to Da­vante Adams and the Pack­ers beat the Ea­gles, 27-13, on Mon­day night to end a four-game los­ing streak.

Rodgers had 313 pass­ing yards and Adams had 113 re­ceiv­ing yards to help send Philadel­phia (5-6) to its first home loss this sea­son.

The Pack­ers (5-6) kept their sink­ing play­off hopes alive but they’re still two games be­hind the Lions (7-4) in the NFC North.

Car­son Wentz had 254 pass­ing yards, ran for a score and threw an in­ter­cep­tion. The Ea­gles are 2-6 since a 3-0 start. Fitz­patrick to start: Ryan Fitz­patrick will re­main the Jets’ start­ing QB for the game Mon­day against the Colts. Coach Todd Bowles made the an­nounce­ment a day af­ter the Jets (3-8) lost 22-17 to the Pa­tri­ots.

Fitz­patrick was 22 of 32 for 269 yards with two touch­downs and no in­ter­cep­tions Sun­day, but fum­bled on the Jets’ fi­nal drive. Ex­tra points: Bears LB Danny Tre­vathan will miss the rest of the sea­son with a rup­tured right patel­lar ten­don. Tre­vathan was in­jured Sun­day. ... Red­skins TE Jor­dan Reed es­ti­mated he has only 30 per­cent range of mo­tion in his sprained left shoul­der but hasn’t ruled out play­ing Sun­day against the Car­di­nals. Reed didn’t prac­tice Mon­day with what he said was a Grade 3 sprain of the AC joint in his left shoul­der. ... The Ti­tans re­leased start­ing CB Per­rish Cox and will re­place him on the ros­ter by pro­mot­ing CB Kalan Reed from the prac­tice squad. ... Vik­ings WR Ste­fon Diggs (Mary­land) re­turned to prac­tice af­ter be­ing held out of the pre­vi­ous game be­cause of a knee in­jury.
