Third down conversions proved to be difference in this game. The Packers converted 10 first downs compared to just five for the Eagles. After the game, Rodgers pointed that out as a key to getting things back on track this season. The Packers’ defense limited the Eagles in the second half to just three points. Wentz finished with 254 yards, one interception, and just the one rushing touchdown.
Green Bay improves to 5-6 on the year, still two games back of Detroit in the division. Green Bay will get a crack at the Lions in the final regular season matchup of the year. As for the rookie QB and Philadelphia, they are also 5-6 on the season and are last in the NFC East.
