Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers couldn't find any answers in their blowout loss to the New York Giants Sunday night.
Rodgers, 14 of 25 for 219 yards, one TD and one INT, was sacked 5 times, and New York's defense also forced and recovered a fumble before the half that basically spelled the end of the Packers in this game.
The team is 7-4 and one game behind the NFC North leader Chicago Bears.
Manning, on the other hand, looked as rest as rested can be after their bye last week. He was 16-of-30 passing for 249 yards and three touchdowns. "I never thought my arm was tired, never felt like it," Manning said, via ESPN.
"After a week off, you come back to practice, it felt good, alive, balls coming out with a little pop on it."
Ahmad Bradshaw looked to be healthy as well, although his foot issue has slowed him a little, with a combined 119 yards and a TD.
Sunday night's win did come at a cost for the Giants, with RB Andre Brown breaking his leg. "It will be a tough loss, he is an important player," Eli said.
“I feel bad for Andre. He’s my little brother. It was heartbreaking just to see him so down,” Bradshaw said. “It’s a hard time for him but hopefully he can come back and maybe catch us in the playoffs.”
