Green Bay, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Green Bay Packers kept their slim playoff hopes alive on Sunday by defeating the New York Giants 45-17 at Lambeau Field.

Aaron Rodgers returned from his second concussion of the season to lead Green Bay to its biggest win of the season, throwing four touchdowns in the process.

Fullback John Kuhn had a big day for the Packers, as well, scoring two rushing touchdowns and catching another.

On the other side of the ball, Green Bay got some big plays from its defense. The Packers picked off Giants quarterback Eli Manning four times and recovered two fumbles for a total of six takeaways in the game.

The Packers have another must-win game next Sunday against division-rival Chicago. If they win, they're in. If they lose, they're done.
