Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdowns passes in an otherwise choppy night for the Green Bay offense, and the Packers‘ defense rattled the New York Giants and limited Odell Beckham Jr. in a 23-16 victory Sunday night.

Rodgers was 23 of 45 for 259 yards and also threw two interceptions. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams each had highlight-reel touchdown catches to help the Packers build an 11-point halftime lead.

But the offense was mired by uncharacteristic drops, and couple of big plays were called back by penalties. Mason Crosbykicked three field goals, including two in the fourth quarter.

New York’s Eli Manning was 18 of 35 for 199 yards, and the Packers pressured him much of the night.

The Giants looked out of sorts until a hurry-up drive that ended with Beckham’s 8-yard touchdown catch with 2:54 left.
