GIANTS 27, PACKERS 13

At East Rutherford, N.J., defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul scored on a spectacular, leaping 24-yard fourth-quarter interception return and the resurgent Giants won their fourth game in a row by beating slumping and injured-riddled Green Bay.

Eli Manning threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle and Brandon Jacobs added a 1-yard run as the host Giants (4-6) handed the Packers (5-5) their third straight loss, their longest skid since a five-game losing streak near the end of 2008.

Two of the three losses have come with quarterback Aaron Rodgers sidelined with a broken left collarbone.

While Scott Tolzien played well at times in his first NFL start, the Giants intercepted him three times.

The Jaguars (1-9) at least scored a touchdown at home for the first time this season. On fourth-and-2 from the 38 on the opening drive, Chad Henne found tight end Danny Noble behind the defense for a 62-yard score. It was Noble’s first NFL reception.
