Packers Solid Start and Equally Solid Finish Leads to Victory in Oakland
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown pass and Damarious Randall returned an interception for another score to help the Green Bay Packers beat the Oakland Raiders 30-20 on Sunday after clinching their franchise-record seventh straight playoff berth.
Green Bay (10-4) clinched a spot in the postseason in the first quarter when the New York Giants lost to Carolina. But the Packers still have their eyes set on a division title and remain one game ahead of Minnesota in the NFC North.
Derek Carr threw two early interceptions to put Oakland (6-8) in a hole but then had a pair of touchdown passes to Amari Cooper. It wasn't enough as the Raiders were eliminated from playoff contention for the 13th straight season.
Next up for the Packers, a trip to Arizona Sunday, December 27, 2015. Kickoff 3:25pm on ESPN 99.1.
