Packers cut short 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 the Green Bay Packers stopped them twice on the goal line to keep a game down two possessions, and took a 27-10 victory.

The Bears actually scored the first touchdown of the game, building momentum from last week’s upset against the San Francisco 49ers right at Lambeau Field. But the Packers scored three unanswered touchdowns to close out the half, while the Green Bay defense began to show.

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

At halftime, the Packers had a total of 233 yards on offense, including 164 through the air from Aaron Rodgers – the Bears had 84. After their touchdown on their first drive, the Bears went three times on their next three, as Green Bay led 24-7 at halftime.

And they did the same on their first practice of the second half, but the Packers fumbled, giving the Bears their first scoring opportunity since their first practice, but they had to settle for a field goal and reduce the advance at 24-10.

CARDINALS COMPLETE RETURN ON RAIDERS ON MIRACULOUS DEFENSIVE GAME IN OVERTIME

The Bears forced another punt early in the fourth quarter, hoping they could join in on the comeback fun from earlier, and the Bears’ running game became a strength.

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

The game plan for Chicago was clearly to run the ball – going into their final drive, Fields had nine pass attempts, while the Bears had 27 rushes (eight of them came from Fields).

With 2:21 left in the game, they had no choice but to throw – his first pass was off target 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-for-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.
