PHILADELPHIA -- Aaron Rodgers threw perfect passes, ran for key first downs and did all his talking on the field.Nobody will question his leadership this week.Rodgers had 313 yards passing and tossed two touchdown passes to Davante Adams to help the Green Bay Packers snap a four-game losing streak with a 27-13 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.The two-time NFL MVP openly criticized his teammates while the losses piled up, causing people to point the finger back at him for the way he handled it. But Packers coach Mike McCarthy praised his quarterbacks approach.His positive attitude has been consistent through all this time, McCarthy said. Hes grown as a quarterback since the start of 2008, and grown as a person all the way through. Hes an excellent leader, always has been.Rodgers hasnt had a losing record since his first season as the starter replacing Brett Favre. Hes led the Packers to seven straight playoff appearances and a Super Bowl title. But the teams recent struggles and some of Rodgers comments made him a target for criticism.Its been a rough stretch, Rodgers said. Were human, so you lose a few in a row and doubt starts to creep in whether or not you can actually finish one of those games off. So for us to finish it off the way we did on offense the last two drives, defensively to come up with a stop, and to finish out the game with a couple of sacks was great for our confidence.Green Bay (5-6) wasnt losing because of Rodgers or the offense. The defense allowed at least 30 points in each of the four previous games and 89 in the past two. Injuries on both sides of the ball didnt help the situation.Rodgers made sure the Packers started fast, leading them to touchdown drives on the first two possessions. They took hostile crowd out of the game early and became the first team to win in Philadelphia (5-6) this season.Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers only managed a field goal against the Eagles in Week 3. Matt Ryan and the Falcons had their lowest scoring output (15 points) here on Nov. 13.The victory kept Green Bays sinking playoff hopes alive but the Packers are still two games behind the Lions (7-4) in the NFC North.Theres a big difference between 4-7 and 5-6 for sure, but I hope theres not a ton of relief because we still have a lot of things in front of us wed like to accomplish, Rodgers said. This is a step in the right direction, a game we needed to take care of business, but we have a short week with Houston coming in and we have to have a similar performance.Rodgers showed off his accuracy under the prime-time lights, going 30 for 39. He made two passes to Adams that will make all the highlight tapes.Rodgers threw a perfect 20-yard TD pass to Adams to give the Packers a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. Nolan Carroll had excellent coverage on the play, but Rodgers put the ball in a tight spot and hit Adams in stride in the back of the end zone.After Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepted Carson Wentz in the third quarter, Rodgers connected with Adams again. Adams was covered well on a deep pass, but Rodgers threw it in the right spot and Adams made an outstanding over-the-shoulder catch for a 50-yard gain.When Aaron gets in a rhythm and he starts finding guys ... and making great throws, thats the offense were accustomed to having, right tackle Brian Bulaga said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi Cheap NFL Jerseys .

China Jerseys Chea . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. NEW YORK -- Adam Wainwright used to be a creature of routine leading up to each start. "Same sleeping shirt the night before," the St. Louis Cardinals ace said. "I couldnt wear blue jeans. I had to wear the colour red. Are you kidding me? It was ridiculous. If I didnt have any of that, or worse, if something was thrown off, then instantly I was thinking, Oh, man, Im in trouble. And thats ridiculous. It has nothing to do with getting anyone out. I figured that out somewhere along the line." With rain falling in the morning and clashing forecasts for the afternoon, Wainwright wasnt sure whether hed pitch at all Thursday. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny told him about 80 minutes before start time to get ready, so Wainwright shortened his pregame routine and then pitched seven scoreless innings to become the major leagues first 10-game winner. In a classic pitching matchup, his 2-1 victory over the New York Mets sent Matt Harvey to his first loss of the season. "We had two Cy Young candidates going at each other," said Matt Carpenter, who tripled in the go-ahead run in the third and preserved the lead with a sparkling stop at second base in the ninth. Some forecasts had predicted up to 3 inches of rain. "Two days ago, they were talking about we were going to need to build an ark," Matheny said. "Thats tough on the starting pitcher. As hes walking through here an hour-and-a-half before the game, hes completely out of his routine because hes hearing conflicting stories of whats going to happen with weather. But he got his mind together and got into an abbreviated version of his routine and went out and executed." After expecting a rain delay, Wainwright did his preparation and warmup -- "kind of a ground routine; its not gymnastics, its just stretching" -- in the clubhouse instead of on the field. "My whole normal pregame routine was kind of thrown out the window," he said. Wainwright (10-3) retired his first 11 batters before David Wrights single and allowed four hits, struck out six and walked two -- including an intentional pass that caused the Mets to pinch hit for Harvey in the seventh. He tied his career best by winning his fifth straight start, dropped his ERA to 2.18 and got his 1,000th strikeout when Wright was called out on a first-inning curveball. "It wasnt much fun to be an offensive player today," Wright said. Known best in New York for freezing Carlos Beltran with a called third strike to end Game 7 of the 2006 NL championship series, Wainwright had been 0-4 with an 8.46 ERA in four starts against the Mets since his only career win against them, in St. Louis on April 18, 22010.dddddddddddd "I had everybody in the world tell me I had never beat the Mets at their stadium, so it was something I wanted to do," Wainwright said. Trevor Rosenthal pitched the eighth, and Edward Mujica allowed a long home run to Marlon Byrd with one out in the ninth. John Buck doubled and took third as Kirk Nieuwenhuis grounded to Carpenter, who made a diving backhand stop as he fell and threw to first for the out. "When it was hit, I thought he had a good chance of getting a base hit up the middle." Carpenter said. Josh Satin fouled off two full-count pitches and swung over a splitter as Mujica remained perfect in 19 save chances. Harvey (5-1) had given up one run and five hits in seven innings with seven strikeouts and a walk, ending a 14-start unbeaten streak dating to Sept. 12 but lowering his ERA to 2.04. "Hes as good as youre going to face in the big leagues," Carpenter said. "Hes got electric stuff. " Harvey had no-decisions in eight of his previous nine starts, and the Mets have scored just 18 runs while hes been in the game during his last 10 outings, according to STATS. "If I go seven zeros, were still playing the ballgame." Harvey said. "Its an incredible lineup. You really have to be locked in one through nine." St. Louis went ahead in the third when Pete Kozma hit an opposite-field single to right for the first hit of the game and Carpenter tripled past Byrd, who tried for a sprawling catch in right but allowed the ball to bounce past him. New Yorks bullpen gave up a run in the eighth, when Carpenter and Beltran singled off Scott Rice, and Matt Holliday and Allen Craig singled against LaTroy Hawkins. A day of dazzling defence included Craigs diving stop at first base in the eighth to rob Omar Quintanilla of a hit, two nifty pickups by Daniel Descalso on slow rollers to third in the seventh and a pair of challenging catches by centre fielder John Jay. He ran to the warning track for Lucas Dudas two-out drive with a runner on second in the fourth and nabbed a wind-blown drive by Jordany Valdespin leading off the sixth. "Our guys played a flawless game," Wainwright said. Next month, Wainwright and Harvey could find themselves in the same clubhouse at Citi Field -- on the NL All-Star team. "Thats a long time from now," Wainwright said. "Ive got to get a lot of different hitters out before I start worrying about All-Star hitters." NOTES: St. Louis took two of three in the series and improved the big leagues best record to 43-23. ... Craig has 49 RBIs. ... Kozma had three of the Cardinals 10 hits.
