Packers lose all hope for playoffs

Posted:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Green Bay's slim playoff chances ended in fitting fashion -- with another fourth-quarter collapse.

David Garrard threw two touchdowns passes, Maurice Jones-Drew scored twice and the Jacksonville Jaguars snapped a four-game losing streak with a 20-16 victory against the Packers on Sunday.

The Packers (5-9) lost on a late drive for the third consecutive week. Carolina beat Green Bay 35-31 two weeks ago with a 55-yard drive in the final two minutes. Houston kicked a winning field goal as time expired to win 24-21 last week.

The latest one came courtesy of Garrard, Dennis Northcutt and Jones-Drew.

The Packers entered the fourth quarter with a 13-7 lead, poised to snap a three-game slide, but Garrard directed two scoring drives that gave Jacksonville (5-9) its second win in eight games.
