NFL Game Capsules

Final Score: Green Bay 34, Detroit 12

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Aaron Rodgers finished with three touchdown passes, as the Green Bay Packers extended the Thanksgiving Day woes for Detroit, posting a 34-12 victory over the Lions at Ford Field. Rodgers totaled 348 yards through the air on 28-of-39 efficiency, while Donald Driver had 142 yards and one score on seven receptions for the Packers (7-4), who have won three straight games. Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson picked off Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford twice, returning the second one for a touchdown. Despite missing practice throughout the week after separating his non-throwing shoulder on the second-to-last play against Cleveland this past Sunday, Stafford got the start for Detroit, completing 20-of-43 passes for 213 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions. Kevin Smith had 43 yards on 18 carries and made four grabs for 46 yards for the Lions (2-9), who have lost six straight on the holiday.

Final Score: Dallas 24, Oakland 7

Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - Tony Romo threw for 309 yards and a pair of scores, as the Dallas Cowboys' offense got back on track in a 24-7 rout of the Oakland Raiders. Romo finished 18-for-29 with no interceptions for Dallas (8-3), which had scored just seven points in each of its last two games -- a 17-7 loss to Green Bay and a 7-6 win over Washington. Miles Austin caught seven passes for 145 yards and a score for the NFC East- leading Cowboys, while Jason Witten recorded 107 yards on five receptions. Roy Williams had a touchdown catch, while Felix Jones ran for a score in the win. Bruce Gradkowski was 18-of-35 for 200 yards and a touchdown in his second consecutive start for Oakland (3-8), having led the Raiders to a last-minute victory over Cincinnati on Sunday. Rookie Darrius Heyward-Bey recorded his first career TD catch.

Final Score: Denver 26, NY Giants 6

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Kyle Orton threw for 245 yards and a touchdown on a bad ankle and the Broncos defense held the Giants in check, forcing three turnovers as Denver dominated New York in a 26-6 victory to snap a four-game slide. Knowshon Moreno rushed for 88 yards and a score on 19 carries while Brandon Marshall made a couple nice grabs and ended with six receptions for 86 yards. Brandon Stokley's lone catch went for a 17-yard touchdown for Denver (7-4), which started the season 6-0 but had since been in a swoon that saw the Broncos relinquish first place in the AFC West to San Diego. Eli Manning was 24-of-40 for 230 yards and an interception and Steve Smith caught seven passes for 71 yards. The Giants offense produced only 181 yards of offense before an 86-yard drive inside the final two minutes. Danny Ware, filling in for an injured Ahmad Bradshaw, and Brandon Jacobs led the ground game with 27 yards each for New York (6-5), which has lost five of its last six games since beginning the season 5-0.
