Packers lose 3rd straight without Rodgers, 27-13 to Giants

Packers lose 3rd straight without Rodgers, 27-13 to Giants

The Packers fell to 5-5 Sunday, as their losing streak without Aaron Rodgers continued.
Three short weeks ago, the Packers were 5-2 and leading the NFC North division with a favorable schedule in front of them.

What a difference three weeks can make.

Playing without Aaron Rodgers once again, Green Bay fell 27-13 to the New York Giants in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Scott Tolzien made his first NFL start for the Packers in the game.  He completed 24 of 34 passes for 339 yards, but threw three costly interceptions, one which was returned for a touchdown by the Giants Jason Pierre-Paul in the fourth quarter, which all but put the game away.

Once again, the Packers defense struggled to get off the field at times, and allowed too many big plays in the passing game.  Eli Manning was 25-35 for 279 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

On the bright side, Green Bay didn't lose ground in the NFC North.  They are still a game behind first place Detroit and Chicago, who are 6-4.  The Packers host the 2-8 Minnesota Vikings next Sunday at Lambeau Field.
