Baker Mayfield, who rallied the Rams (4-10) to a last-minute win on debut last week, had no such magic in his first start for LA; he went 12 of 21 for 111 yards, with a touchdown and an interception; Aaron Rodgers was 22 of 30 for 229 yards, with a TD and a pick, for the Packers (6-8)

Highlights of the Los Angeles Rams’ clash with the Green Bay Packers in Week 15 of the NFL.
AJ Dillon ran in two touchdowns as the Green Bay Packers earned a routine 24-12 win over the visiting Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football at a frigid Lambeau Field.
Story of the game
Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 30 passes for 229 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, as Green Bay (6-8) won a second straight game following a 1-7 mid-season slump.
Dillon and Aaron Jones combined for 28 carries for 126 yards, with the devastating backfield duo also adding 71 receiving yards and Jones snagging Rodgers’ TD pass.
Baker Mayfield, who rallied the Rams (4-10) to a last-minute victory in the team’s most recent outing and on his debut – just two days after signing for the squad – had no such magic in his first start for Los Angeles. He went 12 of 21 for 111 yards, with a touchdown and an interception.
With the Packers edging a sloppy first half 10-6, the hosts then broke open the game with a pair of third-quarter touchdowns.
Firstly Dillon plunged in from a yard out while, following a three-and-out by Los Angeles, Green Bay needed only six plays to find the end zone again, this time on a seven-yard scoring strike from Rodgers to Jones.
The Rams answered back just over two minutes later with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Mayfield to Tyler Higbee. However, Matt Gay missed the extra point, keeping the margin at 24-12 – and that’s how it stayed.
The teams exchanged fourth-quarter turnovers. Mayfield had his arm hit on a throw that was intercepted by Rasul Douglas. Two plays later, Jones fumbled and Jalen Ramsey recovered for Los Angeles.
