Fourth Quarter:


Young blocks field goal*

(2:51pm) - The Packers' scoring streak ended at six possessions today and eight overall against the Bears as Willie Young blocked Mason Crosby's 38-yard field goal attempt with 4:47 left in the game.

Packers go up 21 points

(2:25pm) - The Packers widened their margin to 38-17 on Aaron Rodgers' 3-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Cobb with 14:52 left in the fourth quarter.

The came after Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields intercepted a Jay Cutler pass and returned it 52 yards to the Chicago 11. The pick came on a mix-up between Cutler and receiver Brandon Marshall. Marshall ran a double move, but Cutler threw the ball thinking the receiver would stop and turn around.

Green Bay has now scored 24 consecutive points.


Third Quarter:

Packers take 14-point lead

(2:09pm) - Aaron Rodgers' 11-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson in the back of the end zone on third-and-nine gave the Packers a 31-17 lead with 4:28 left in the third quarter.

The TD came after Clay Matthews intercepted a Jay Cutler pass that was deflected by Tramon Williams and returned it 25 yards to the Chicago 35. Williams jumped a slant pass that was intended for Josh Morgan.

The Packers have now scored on all five of their possessions today and seven straight against the Bears dating back to last year's season finale.

Packers increase lead

(1:55pm) - Mason Crosby's 53-yard field goal on the opening drive of the second half gave the Packers a 24-17 lead. Prior to the kick, Green Bay had scored touchdowns on five straight possessions against the Bears dating back to last year's season finale at Soldier Field.

It appeared that the Packers had continued that streak when Aaron Rodgers lofted a 34-yard TD pass to Davante Adams. But the score was nullified by a holding penalty on center Corey Linsley.


Second Quarter:


Rodgers gives Packers 21-17 lead*

(1:21pm) - Aaron Rodgers' 22-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb gave the Packers a 21-17 lead with 1:03 left in the first half. The drive started at Green Bay's 39 after the Bears failed to recover an onside kick.

The Packers have now scored touchdowns on all three of their possessions.

Packers grab 14-10 lead

(12:55pm)  - The Packers once again answered immediately after a Bears score as Aaron Rodgers' 3-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson gave Green Bay a 14-10 lead with 10:11 left in the first half.

It appeared the Bears would force the Packers to settle for a field goal when Lance Briggs stopped Eddie Lacy for no gain on third-and-two at the Chicago 30. But linebacker D.J. Williams was whistled for a questionable unnecessary roughness penalty, resulting in a first down.

Bears take 10-7 lead

(12:45pm) - Robbie Gould's 23-yard field goal gave the Bears a 10-7 lead with 13:58 left in the second quarter. The kick capped a 13-play, 75-yard drive.

On fourth-and-one from the Green Bay 35, Jay Cutler fumbled the exchange from center Brian de la Puente, picked up the ball and dashed 15 yards up the middle for a first down.

The Bears had first-and-goal at the 1, but Kyle Long was penalized for a false start and Cutler threw slightly too high to Alshon Jeffery in the middle of the end zone on third-and-goal from the 5.


First Quarter:

Packers respond quickly

(12:27pm) - After Brandon Marshall's touchdown, it didn't take the Packers long to answer.

Eddie Lacy's 2-yard TD run up the middle capped a six-play, 81 yard drive that took just 2:22. Aaron Rodgers completed passes of 9, 43, 17 and 10 yards on the first four plays, resulting in first-and-goal at the Chicago 2. After an incompletion, Lacy tied the game.


Marshall gives Bears 7-0 lead*

(12:20pm) - Jay Cutler's 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall on the game's opening possession gave the Bears a 7-0 lead with 6:30 left in the first quarter.

The TD capped a 15-play, 80-yard drive that burned 8:30 off the clock. Cutler completed 5 of 6 passes for 38 yards to four different receivers and scrambled for 12 yards on third-and-four. Kyle Long rushed for 23 yards on six carries.
