151101-q4-in-game-updates-650DENVER — The Packers suffered their first loss of the season and saw their division lead over the Vikings cut to one game, following a 29-10 defeat to the Broncos at Sports Authority Field.

A field goal and a safety early in the fourth quarter erased any doubt as to the outcome of Sunday night’s game.

Aaron Rodgers was under relentless pressure from the NFL’s sacks leaders. He was sacked three times and he was hurried and hit on several occasions. He passed for just 77 yards and suffered a 69.7 passer rating.

Meanwhile, Peyton Manning threw for 340 yards and a 96.9 passer rating. C.J. Anderson rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown, and Ronnie Hillman added 60 yards and two touchdowns. Manning was not sacked.

Denver’s Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes for 168 yards. Randall Cobb led the Packers with six receptions, but for only 27 yards.

The Packers, 6-1, travel to Carolina next weekend. The Panthers are undefeated heading into Monday night’s game against Indianapolis.
