Packers 55, Titans 7:
Aaron Rodgers passed for 342 yards and three touchdowns and added one of Green Bay’s four rushing scores as the Packers rolled up their highest point total in 29 years in a demolition of visiting Tennessee.

Ryan Grant rushed for 80 yards and a pair of touchdowns and James Jones led the receiving corps with seven catches for 100 yards and a touchdown for Green Bay (11-4), which moved ahead of the San Francisco 49ers (10-4-1) for the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the NFC.

Jake Locker went 13-for-30 for 140 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and Chris Johnson was limited to 28 yards on 11 carries for the Titans (5-10).

The Packers stuck first on Rodgers’ 6-yard touchdown run and turned an interception into points less than 2 1/2 minutes later when Rodgers hit Randall Cobb with a 20-yard scoring pass to make it 14-0 in the first quarter. Green Bay would push it to 20-0 at the half before really opening things up after the break.

The Packers scored a touchdown on five straight possessions in the second half, capped by back-to-back scoring runs by Grant that made it 55-0. The Titans finally got on the board with 1:42 left when Locker hit Kenny Britt with a 2-yard pass.
