GREEN BAY, WI - Julius Peppers returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown, Aaron Rodgers threw for three scores, and the Green Bay Packers routed the Minnesota Vikings 42-10 on Thursday night.

Eddie Lacy ran for a season-high 105 yards and two touchdowns. Jordy Nelson hauled in a 66-yard touchdown catch, and the Packers' defense held Minnesota scoreless for three quarters.

Green Bay (3-2) led 28-0 after the first half played in a light rain, and essentially toyed with Minnesota (2-3) the rest of the way.

Peppers had the highlight-reel play after picking off a pass over the middle in the second quarter from a pressured Christian Ponder.

Peppers veered left across the field and ran the final 10 yards along the sideline to give Green Bay a 21-0 lead with 7:06 left in the first half.

Ponder started for Minnesota with rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater out with a sprained left ankle.
