The Packers are still alive.

The dolphins are melting.

Green Bay caught three interceptions off Tua Tagovailoa and blanked the Dolphins in the second half to claim a 26-20 victory on Christmas Day in Miami.

The Packers threw a field goal with 2:02 left in the game to earn six points, giving the Dolphins a chance to win the game with a two-minute drive.

But Tagovailoa and Miami’s offense fell short. He threw his third interception of the second half on the second play from the drive. Tagovailoa apparently aimed for Mike Gesicki with the pass to the right sideline, but the ball didn’t come close to reaching the tight end. Cornerback Rasul Douglas easily camped under the pass to seal the win for Green Bay.

Tagovailoa was 9 of 12 passing for 229 yards with a halftime touchdown. He went 16 of 25 for 310 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions.

Despite going for 376 total yards, Miami was just 2 of 7 on third down. Jaylen Waddle had five catches for 143 yards, including an 84-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Tyreek Hill had four catches for 103 yards, including a 52-yard catch in the second quarter that gave Jeff Wilson a one-yard touchdown.

But in the fourth quarter, Tagovailoa knocked down Hill and was intercepted by cornerback Jaire Alexander. That play came just after Aaron Rodgers threw his 11th interception of the year.

Then, after the Packers took a 23-20 lead, Tagovailoa was intercepted by linebacker De’Vondre Campbell to end a promising drive. Tagobvailoa was looking for Raheem Mostert in the middle, but Mostert wasn’t ready for the football and Campbell stepped in to cut the ball off and catch it.

Rodgers finished the contest 24 of 38 for 238 yards with a touchdown and a pick. Rodgers completed passes to 10 different players, with Allen Lazard leading with five catches for 61 yards. Christian Watson had to leave the game with a hip injury, but had six receptions for 49 yards. Even veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis was huge, catching a pair of passes for 32 yards, with a 1-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

With the victory, the Packers are now 7-8 and remain alive in the hunt for the NFC playoffs. The club is currently No. 10, but is only half a game behind No. 7 Washington. The Packers host the Vikings and Lions for the final two weeks of the season.

The Dolphins were 8-3 but have now lost four straight to fall to 8-7. They play New England next week and host the Jets in Week 18.
