Packers win over Falcons for AFC South title

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for 253 yards, a touchdown and an interception, helping the Packers beat the Atlanta Falcons 23-20 Sunday.

The Packers have won five in a row for the first time since their Super Bowl title in 2008.

Rodgers was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 253 passing yards, two touchdowns and an intercepted pass.

He also ran for a touchdown.

Rodgers led the Packers to their first winning season since 2007, when they won the NFC North.

He is third in the NFL with 2,724 passing yards and fifth with 5,664 yards passing.

He has been a three-time Pro Bowler, a three time Pro Bowel and is the first quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards and pass for 3 or more touchdowns in a season since Brett Favre in 2009.

The Falcons are 5-1 this season and in a wild-card spot.

The Falcons have won three of their past four, including last week’s 30-23 victory at Green Bay.
