SAN DIEGO (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw touchdown passes to four receivers, Green Bay returned two Philip Rivers interceptions for scores and the Packers withstood a wild finish to hold off the Chargers 45-38 Sunday and remain the NFL's only undefeated team.

The Packers improved to 8-0 behind Rodgers, who completed 21 of 26 passes for 247 yards. He has an NFL-high 24 TD passes.

It wasn't easy, though. The Packers led by 21 points early in the fourth before Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Vincent Jackson in the span of 1:07 midway through the quarter.

San Diego had a final chance to tie it, but Charlie Peprah intercepted Rivers in the closing seconds and returned it 76 yards to seal the victory.

Rivers tied his career high with four touchdown passes but was picked off three times as the Chargers (4-4) lost their third straight.
