Rodgers, Packers can’t rally again as playoff hopes fade

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Aaron Rodgers couldn’t produce a second consecutive late comeback and didn’t get much help from a Green Bay defense that keeps underachieving.

Now the Packers head into Thanksgiving week with virtually no margin for error as the three-time defending NFC North champions’ playoff hopes continue to fade.

Green Bay’s 27-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night dropped the Packers to 4-7, two games behind San Francisco in the race for the NFC’s final wild-card spot.

Next up for the Packers is a trip to Philadelphia to face the NFC East-leading Eagles.
