Packers and Bears players, coaches and other staffers locked arms on the sidelines during the national anthem Thursday night.
Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepts Bears QB Mike Glennon in the first half Thursday's NFC North matchup. On the next play, Rodgers found Nelson all alone in the flat for a 4-yard touchdown to make it 28-7 with 4:09 left in the third quarter.
The Bears have 11 days until their Monday night match-up against the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field.
Behind quarterback Mike Glennon, the Chicago Bears are turning into the Bad News Bears on Thursday. Since that time, the Packers have had two Hall of Famers - Bart Starr and Favre - and a future Hall of Famer - Rodgers - at the position.
Two plays and 60 yards later, Green Bay was in the end zone again, it was 21-0 with just under five minutes to play in the first half and, for all practical purposes, the game was over. By the end of the first half, he managed to score his first National Football League touchdown to go with his first National Football League carries. The NFL Odds for the game have the Packers favored to pick up the victory in this one.
There will be a problem in the Bears' defense as veteran safety Quintin Demps broke his arm in last Sunday against the Steelers and is out of the squad for the season.
In the last seven meetings, the Packers have scored more than 20 points; and in 15 of McCarthy's wins against the Bears, Green Bay has scored more than 20 points.
But even with a short-handed supporting cast, Rodgers showed the Bears the value of stability and confidence at quarterback. Rodgers finished his night 18 of 26 for 179 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions - with just two sacks - for a passer rating of 128.0. On the very first drive of the game, the team's starting running back endured a game-ending injury. "They're trying drape it under the auspices of the flag this has nothing to do with the flags this has everything to do with what Collin has started which is police brutality", said bar owner Kenny Johnson.
Glennon had a hand in all four Green Bay takeaways.
