EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning threw for three touchdowns, giving him 200 for his career, and the New York Giants sacked Aaron Rodgers five times Sunday night in a 38-10 rout of the Green Bay Packers.
Coming off their bye, the Giants (7-4) put to rest concerns about a dormant offense and a tired arm for Manning. He connected with rookie Rueben Randle, Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks for scores, and Ahmad Bradshaw had a combined 119 yards, including a 59-yard sprint on a screen pass to begin the onslaught.
The Giants opened a two-game lead in the NFC East.
Mathias Kiwanuka had two of the sacks as Rodgers never got comfortable. Green Bay (7-4) had its five-game winning streak snapped and fell out of a tie atop the NFC North with Chicago. The Packers had allowed no more than 24 points during their string of victories.
RHINELANDER - Whether by plane train or automobile more people will travel this holiday season. AAA says 30 percent of Americans will take a trip this holiday season.
Most of those people will go by car. Triple-A expects drivers will pay less for gas compared to last year. It's important to be prepared for a road trip this holiday season.
"You should carry your normal items your blanket, a shovel, water, some food, whatever,” says Leon Pittsley, the Gates Body Shop Manager. “But most of all, don't drink and drive and just drive defensively on these icy roads."
Safe driving could keep your car out of a repair shop like Gates Body Shop in Rhinelander. Driving defensively means staying alert behind the wheel.
It also means keeping a safe distance from the car ahead. If you see anyone with road rage, don't let it bother you.
“You know just kind of pass it off,” says Pittsley. “You know someone gets a little too close or somebody blinks their bright lights at you, you're on your way to visit grandma or somebody you know, get there safe.”
AAA estimates 95 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from their home.
