Packers 24, Rams 10

Rodgers human but still a winner

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers' remarkable run of mistake-free football at home is over. Green Bay, though, is still perfect this season. A relentless defense helped the Packers overcome an unusually average day from their MVP quarterback.

Rodgers threw for two touchdowns and 241 yards, and the defense had three sacks and four interceptions to hold off the Rams.

Rodgers' NFL-record streaks of 587 pass attempts and 49 touchdown passes at home without an interception ended in the first quarter when Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis dove to grab a tipped ball. Rodgers threw another pick later and lost a fumble on a sack.

"All of them," Rodgers said when asked which turnover bothered him the most.

But relentless pressure on quarterback Nick Foles helped keep the Packers unbeaten. Foles' four interceptions were a career high; two came in the fourth quarter inside the Packers 10.
