The Green Bay Packers summed up a snowy holiday weekend with a win over the Tennessee Titans, 40-14.
Green Bay received the ball to start the game and they went straight to work, opening the game with a 60-yard scoring drive capped off by a six-yard Davante Adams’ touchdown reception from Aaron Rodgers. After a Green Bay defensive stop, the Packers earned the ball back and drove down the field for another touchdown giving them a 12-point lead into the second quarter. Packer defenseman Darnell Savage grabbed his fourth interception of the season early in the second quarter which led to another Adams touchdown reception. The Packers nearly pitched a shutout in the first half until the 37-second mark when Tennessee's Ryan Tannehill tossed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jonnu Smith to bring the game within a 12-point reach.
Tennessee received the second-half kickoff and took advantage of their opportunity with a 45-yard touchdown run by Tannehill to bring his team within five points, 19-14. Green Bay scored in back-to-back possessions after Tennessee’s opening second half drive, making it a 33-14 game. Green Bay capped off the game with an AJ Dillon score and a defensive stop in the remaining minutes of the fourth quarter. Dillon ran for a 30-yard touchdown in his first score as a Packer while his second touchdown went for seven yards giving him his first 100+ yard game of his career. Adams saw a three-touchdown reception night which gave him his 17th touchdown of the season, that went hand in hand with Rodgers four-touchdown pass night, giving him the NFL lead in touchdowns with 44. Green Bay improved to 12-3 and remained the No. 1 seed for the NFC playoff picture. The Packers will finish regular season play next Sunday when they travel to play the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field for a 3:25pm kickoff.
