Brees extended his NFL record for consecutive games with at least one TD pass to 49, while leading long scoring drives on four straight possessions to turn a 14-point deficit into a 28-21 halftime lead.

Packers 30, Rams 20

ST. LOUIS — Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers made themselves right at home in St. Louis.

Backed by a huge contingent of cheeseheads who were every bit as loud as the real home fans, Rodgers passed for three touchdowns and Green Bay’s depleted defense clamped down on the Rams.

Randall Cobb caught two touchdown passes and Jordy Nelson had eight receptions for a season-best 122 yards for the Packers.

Vikings 21, Cardinals 14

MINNEAPOLIS — Adrian Peterson ran for 153 yards and a first-quarter touchdown, and Minnesota survived an ugly second half to hand the Cardinals their third straight loss.

Percy Harvin caught Christian Ponder’s only touchdown pass, but Ponder threw an interception that led to a second-quarter touchdown run by LaRod Stephens-Howling.

Ponder has seven turnovers in the last three games; two of them were turned into touchdowns last week at Washington.

Arizona’s John Skelton went 25 for 36 for 262 yards and two turnovers.

Raiders 26, Jaguars 23 (OT)

OAKLAND, Calif. — Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 40-yard field goal after Cecil Shorts III fumbled on the opening possession of overtime and the Oakland Raiders rallied from 14 points down in the second half.

Carson Palmer threw one TD pass and ran for another to force overtime for the Raiders before they won it after Lammar Houston forced a fumble that Joselio Hanson recovered at the Jacksonville 21.

After one play to center the ball, Janikowski came on to kick the winning field goal.

Colts 17, Browns 13
