GREEN BAY, Wis. — Another fast start at home for the Green Bay Packers left the Philadelphia Eagles with a loss in the cold.

Aaron Rodgers passed for 341 yards and three touchdowns, Julius Peppers returned his second interception of the season for a score, and the Packers defense stuffed the high-octane Eagles for a 53-20 rout Sunday.

The matchup of NFC contenders quickly became a blowout, with the Packers (7-3) racing out to a 30-6 halftime lead. Rodgers threw for two touchdowns in the first half, and Micah Hyde scored on a 75-yard punt return.

Peppers finished off the Eagles (7-3) by returning an interception 52 yards in the third quarter.

RAMS 22, BRONCOS 7: Shaun Hill was effective in his first start since regaining the quarterback job and the St. Louis defense made life miserable for Peyton Manning in a victory over visiting Denver (7-3).

Tre Mason rushed 29 times for 113 yards, the most allowed by the Broncos’ top-ranked run defense. Kenny Britt had four catches for 128 yards with a 63-yard score, and Greg Zuerlein was a career-best 5 for 5 on field goals for the Rams (4-6).

Manning was 34 for 54 for 389 yards with two interceptions, but was held to a 42-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, ending a streak of 15 consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes.

CHIEFS 24, SEAHAWKS 20: Kansas City (7-3) stopped Seattle (6-4) on fourth down three times in the fourth quarter, holding on for a tense win at home.

Jamaal Charles ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns and Knile Davis also ran for a score as the Chiefs won their fifth straight game and moved into a tie for first in the AFC West.

TEXANS 23, BROWNS 7: J.J. Watt caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Mallett and dominated on defense as Houston (5-5) won at Cleveland (6-4).

Mallett threw a pair of TD passes and finished with 211 yards in his first career start. The Texans played without star running back Arian Foster because of a groin injury, but rookie Alfred Blue gained 156 yards on a franchise-record 36 carries.

CARDINALS 14, LIONS 6: Drew Stanton threw touchdown passes to Michael Floyd on Arizona’s first two possessions, and Arizona (9-1) beat visiting Detroit (7-3) for its sixth straight win.

49ERS 16, GIANTS 10: San Francisco rookie linebacker Chris Borland intercepted a fourth-down pass by Eli Manning at the 49ers 2 with 4:43 to play, capping a goal-line stand as the visiting 49ers (6-4) sent error-plagued New York (3-7) to its fifth straight loss.

CHARGERS 13, RAIDERS 6: Philip Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd on the third play from scrimmage, and San Diego (6-4) held on for a lackluster victory against visiting Oakland (0-10), extending the Raiders’ losing streak to 16.
