Green Bay Packers defeat Chicago Bears 35-21; clinch top seed in NFC playoffs

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers got their offense back on track, while cliniching home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, with a 35-21 win over the Chicago Bears Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers got pretty good protection from that Bears (7-8) defense and his numbers reflected it. Rodgers finished the game 21-of-29 for 283 yards and 5 touchdown passes.

Rodgers broke the team record for passing yards in a season, set by Lynn Dickey with 4,453 yards in 1983. He also set an NFL record with a passer rating above 100 for a 13th game this season.

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson caught 6 passes for 115 yards and 2 TDs. James Jones also caught a pair of touchdown passes.

The Packers (14-1) defense intercepted Bears quarterback Josh McCown twice, but still gave up 441 yards of total offense.

Get a full recap of the Packers win over the Bears with Mark Daniels and Nick Vitrano on the 5th Quarter, Tuesday at 5 p.m. exclusively on 97.5/1360 News Talk WTAQ.
