Arab News - - SPORTS -

PHILADEL­PHIA: Aaron Rodgers threw two touch­down passes to Da­vante Adams and the Green Bay Pack­ers beat the Philadel­phia Ea­gles 27-13 Mon­day night to snap a fourgame los­ing streak.

Rodgers had 313 yards pass­ing and Adams had 113 yards re­ceiv­ing 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 yards pass­ing, ran for a score and threw an in­ter­cep­tion. The last-place Ea­gles are 2-6 since a 3-0 start.

Rodgers came out firing and led the Pack­ers on con­sec­u­tive touch­down drives to start the game. Rodgers ex­tended the open­ing drive by run­ning twice for 25 yards and tossed a 12-yard TD pass to Adams for a 7-0 lead.

Af­ter the Ea­gles an­swered on Wentz's 1-yard TD run, Rodgers led another 75-yard scor­ing drive. He threw a per­fect 20-yard TD pass to Adams to give the Pack­ers a 14-7 lead early in the sec­ond quar­ter. Nolan Carroll had ex­cel­lent cov­er­age on the play, but Rodgers put the ball in a tight spot and hit Adams in stride in the back of the end zone.

Aaron Rip­kowski's 1-yard TD run early in the fourth quar­ter ex­tended Green Bay's lead to 24-13.

The Ea­gles had al­lowed only three touch­downs at home while outscor­ing op­po­nents 108-38 in their first four games at Lin­coln Fi­nan­cial Field.
