2nd Half Surge Lifts Packers Past Bears, 26-10
Aaron Rodgers threw for 326 yards and three second-half touchdowns, and the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears, 26-10, in Wisconsin on Thursday night.
After managing just two Mason Crosby field goals in the first half, Green Bay (4-2) began to roll in the second half. Rodgers found Davante Adams with 9:11 remaining in the third quarter, giving the Packers a 13-10 lead that they never relinquished. He added fourth quarter scoring strikes to Adams and Randall Cobb.
Rodgers set a team record with 39 completions on 56 attempts. Adams finished with 13 catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns.
Already without starting quarterback Jay Cutler because of a thumb injury, Chicago (1-6) lost backup Brian Hoyer to a broken left arm in the second quarter. Third-string QB Matt Barkley was woeful, completing 6 of 15 passes for 81 yards and two interceptions.
