NFL: New York Giants 27, Green Bay 13

Nov. 17, 2013 at 8:05 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Jason Pierre-Paul returned an interception 24 yards for a touchdown Sunday, turning back a Green Bay rally and boosting the New York Giants to a 27-13 win.

The Packers, behind substitute quarterback Scott Tolzien, had pulled to within 20-13 early in the fourth quarter after a long touchdown drive.

But on the next series, he ran out of the pocket and his pass attempt was picked off by Pierre-Paul, who ran untouched into the end zone for the game-clinching score with 10:49 remaining.

Tolzein was intercepted three times in all as the Packers (5-5) dropped their third straight after star signal-caller Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone.

Eli Manning completed 25-of-35 passes for 279 yards and a touchdown pass to Rueben Randle for New York (4-6), which logged a fourth straight win following an 0-6 start.

Victor Cruz made eight catches for 110 yards.

Jordy Nelson led the Packers' receiving corps with eight grabs for 117 yards.
