GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers remain unbeaten, thanks to a career-best day from Aaron Rodgers in a 49-23 rout of the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Rodgers threw for a career-high 408 yards, tied a personal best with four touchdown passes and ran for two more scores.

Charles Woodson ran an interception back for a touchdown for the Packers (4-0), who join resurgent NFC North rivals Detroit as the only undefeated teams left in the NFL.

Eric Decker caught a pair of touchdowns from Kyle Orton for Denver (1-3). Orton threw for 273 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Backup Tim Tebow made a brief and uneventful appearance at quarterback for the Broncos early, but coach John Fox chose not to give Tebow more work when the game got out of control in the fourth quarter.
