Another 4 TD night for Rodgers as Packers Win Over Titans at Lambeau
Green Bay 40, Tennessee 14
–It was another masterful performance from Aaron Rodgers – as the MVP candidate threw for 231 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Packers past the Titans at snowy Lambeau Field on Sunday night.
Rodgers tossed two touchdowns to Davante Adams in the first half, along with a 21-yard strike to Equanimeous St. Brown as the Packers built a 19-0 lead. Tennessee would find the end zone for the first time in the closing seconds of the half on a touchdown pass to Jonnu Smith to make it 19-7 at halftime.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill showed his wheels to start the second half, scoring on a 45-yard run with 12:01 to play in the third quarter to cut the Packers’ lead to 19-14.
That’s as close as the Titans would get – as Rodgers found Adams for his third score of the night, and rookie running back AJ Dillion found the end zone twice in the second half to help the Packers score the final 21 points of the contest and seal the win.
