Aaron Rodgers completed 18-of-23 passes for 246 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions to lead the Packers to a third straight victory over the Seawhawks.

Desean Jackson picked up the fourth-longest reception of his career when he hauled in an 80-yard touchdown grab in Washington's 27-22 win at Philadelphia that kept the Redskins playoff hopes alive. He finished with three catches for 102 yards.

Alex Mack started his 13th straight game of the season in Atlanta's 42-14 win at Los Angeles. Brian Schwenke played off the bench in Tennessee's Week 14 win over Denver that kept the Titans tied for first in the AFC South with a Houston squad that was a 22-17 winner at Indianapolis.

Shane Vereen returned from injured reserve after missing nine games due to injury but also left the Giants' 10-7 Sunday Night Football victory over the Cowboys due to injury and did not return.

Ron Rivera (head coach) and Richard Rodgers Sr. (assistant defensive backs/safeties coach) were also victorious with their Carolina squad a 28-16 home winner over San Diego.

L.P. Ladouceur played in his 185th straight game all for the Cowboys dating back to 2005 for a team that has already clinched the NFC East title and has an 11-2 mark that is the league's best with the Patriots having a chance to equal the mark on Monday Night Football.
