–Eagles running back Jordan Howard scored the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter as they handed the Packers their first loss of the season at Lambeau Field Thursday Night. Nigel Bradham intercepted Aaron Rodgers with 20 seconds left to seal the win for Philly. The interception was the second time in the fourth quarter the Packers were unable to score after driving to within the Eagles’ five yard line. Rodgers threw for 422 yards and two touchdowns, but lost a fumble and threw the late interception to account Green Bay’s two turnovers on the night. His counterpart, Carson Wentz tossed three scores to three different receivers in the win that moved the Eagles to 2-and-2. Davante Adams led the Packers in receiving in the loss – catching 10 passes for 180 yards – but is still without a touchdown on the year. Green Bay drops to 3-1 on the year, they play at Dallas next Sunday.
