The New York Giants returned to winning ways with a comprehensive 38-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

The Giants had gone into the game on the back of two straight defeats, but they re-established their hold on the NFC East standings with a superb display.

Quarterback Eli Manning led the way as he threw three touchdown passes, completing 16-of-30 attempts for 249 yards.

Manning connected with Rueben Randle and Victor Cruz in the first half before finding Hakeem Nicks with 16-yard scoring pass in the third quarter.

Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown also rushed for touchdowns to move the Giants to 7-4 for the season.

The Giants defence was equally effective as they ensured Aaron Rodgers endured a torrid time.

Rodgers was sacked five times - twice by Mathias Kiwanuka - while he was intercepted by cornerback Corey Webster.

The Packers quarterback did connect with Jordy Nelson for a touchdown as he completed 14-of-25 passes for 219 yards but it was little reward for Rodgers.

"I've not been on a loss like this before," Rodgers said. "It doesn't feel good. Hopefully we'll remember this feeling and not have this kind of embarrassment again."
