Rodgers tied the team touchdown pass record with 6, and tied the NFL mark for a half set by Daryle Lamonica of the Oakland Raiders in 1969. This quickly turned the 190th meeting of this rivalry in to a blowout. Rodgers also broke the record, recently held by Peyton Manning, with his 16th scoring pass of 70 or more yards. Rodgers erased any doubt of his tweaked left hamstring suffered 2 weeks ago.
The Packers' red-hot QB found Jordy Nelson for scores of 73 and 40 yards, Brandon Bostick for a 1-yard score, Andrew Quarless for a 4-yarder, Eddie Lacy for a 56-yard pass, and Randall Cobb for an 18-yard TD. Green Bay is now 6-3 on the season, but still 1 game behind the Detroit Lions in the NFC North. The Lions came back against the Miami Dolphins for a 20-16 win, running their record to 7-2.
Nelson finished the night with 6 catches for 152 yards, Cobb had 4 catches for 72 yards and had a TD reception for the 6th straight game.
The Green Bay defense was also dominant, including sacks from Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers. Peppers forced a fumble on his sack at the Chicago 32. The defense held Matt Forte to 54 yards on 17 carries, and Jay Cutler to 22/37 for 272 yards, and 2 interceptions.
The Bears fell to 3-6 on the season, in the basement of the NFC North division. The Bears will visit the Minnesota Vikings for another division game on the road this Sunday. The Packers look to keep the heat on Detroit, hosting the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Eagles will be coming off a short week following a Monday Night Football game.
