The Packers cut off the Bears’ comeback attempt to beat NFC North rivals again

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Aaron Rodgers still owns the Chicago Bears.

The Bears made a run on a comeback, but were stopped twice at the goal line by the Green Bay Packers to keep the game from two possessions late, and cruised to a 27–10 victory.

The Bears actually scored the game’s first touchdown, riding the momentum of last week’s upset over the San Francisco 49ers straight to Lambeau Field. But the Packers scored three unanswered touchdowns to close out the half, as Green Bay’s defense began to show up.

Aaron Jones scored two of the Packers’ touchdowns, while Allen Lazard scored the other in his 2022 debut.

At halftime, the Packers had 233 total yards of offense, 164 of them passing by Aaron Rodgers; the Bears had 84. After his touchdown on his first drive, the Bears went three and away on their next three, as Green Bay led 24-7 at the half.

And they did the same thing on their first drive of the second half, but the Packers faltered, giving the Bears their first scoring opportunity since their first drive, but they had to settle for a field goal and cut the lead to 24-10.

CARDINALS COMPLETE COMEBACK OVER RAIDERS IN MIRACLE DEFENSIVE GAME IN OVERTIME

The Bears forced another punt early in the fourth quarter, hoping to join in the fun back from earlier, and the Bears’ running game became a force.

David Montgomery rushed for 14 yards, then took a sack for 22 yards. Khalil Herbert then had a 27-yard run to put the Bears in the red zone. But on both the third and fourth and on goal, Justin Fields was stopped inside the one-yard line to give the Packers the ball.

The game plan for Chicago was clearly to run the ball: Entering their final drive, Fields had nine pass attempts while the Bears had 27 runs (eight of them were by Fields).

With 2:21 left in the game, they had no choice but to throw: their first pass went wide and the next was intercepted.

Rodgers completed 19 of 25 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns, while Aaron Jones rushed for 132 yards on 15 carries.

Fields was 7-of-11 for just 70 yards — only two Bears had more than one catch (Equanimeous St. Brown and Montgomery), and no one had more than two. Montgomery finished with 122 rushing yards on 15 attempts.
