Packers bounce back against Bears

The Green Bay Packers scored early and often in its 41-25 rout of the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football.

 

The Green Bay Packers scored touchdowns on each of its first three drives, taking a 27-10 advantage into halftime. Aaron Rodgers found Davante Adams for his first of four touchdown passes on the evening. The score gave Adams 500 catches in Packers career, the fastest to hit that mark since Sterling Sharpe. After the Bears kicked a field goal to make it 6-3, Rodgers found Marcedes Lewis and Allen Lazard on consecutive drives to give them a 20-3 lead. Following the Lazard touchdown, Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky fumbled the ball deep in Packers territory as Preston Smith reached the endzone on the scoop-and-score fumble recovery. Trubisky would find Allen Robinson for a one-yard score to help the Bears narrow the lead at the break. 

 

The Packers would tack onto their lead in the third quarter with Rodgers finding Robert Tonyan on a 39-yard passing route for his fourth touchdown and Jamaal Williams scoring from 13 yards out. The Bears would find the endzone twice in the fourth quarter on a touchdown throw and catch for Trubisky, but it was not enough to catch the Packers. The victory gave the Packers its 100th win in the rivalry as they now turn their attention to next week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
