Rodgers' late TD helps Packers beat Buccaneers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and the Green Bay Packers survived a scare from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 35-26 victory Sunday.

With the Packers leading by two points and trying to fend off a rally by Tampa Bay in the fourth quarter, Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for a clinching 40-yard touchdown with 2:55 left in the game -- Nelson's second TD catch of the afternoon.

The Packers ran their record to 10-0, leaving them as the NFL's lone undefeated team going into a Thanksgiving Day matchup at Detroit.

Josh Freeman threw for 342 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Buccaneers (4-6), who have lost four straight but didn't back down against one of the NFL's elite teams.
