Bears capitalize on interception of Rodgers, take 7-0 lead

Aaron Rodgers AP

The Packers made the first big mistake in Sunday’s NFC North title game, and the Bears made Green Bay pay.

Jay Cutler’s four-yard TD pass to running back Matt Forte gave the Bears a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter in Chicago.

The touchdown capped an eight-play, 80-yard drive that started after Bears safety Chris Conte intercepted Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the endzone. On the play, Rodgers rolled right and threw on the run, but Conte read the play well and made the pick.

It’s unclear whether Rodgers was intending the pass for wideout Jarrett Boykin or tight end Andrew Quarless. Conte was covering Quarless on the play but drifted off of him to make the pick.

On the Packers’ next drive, Green Bay drove deep into Chicago territory, but Rodgers was picked again, this time by Bears cornerback Tim Jennings, who caught a pass that hit off of Jordy Nelson’s hands. Rodgers’ pass was a little high.

    Cordarelle Patterson is a better reciever than Jordy Nelson & Randall Cobb combined.

    Packers will get destroyed by the Bears.

  4. contra74 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:19 PM

    The Green Bay Refs are at it again. Unnecessary roughness call was bogus and even packer fans admit it. Hey, anything to get the packers into the playoffs huh Gooddell?

  5. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:20 PM

    i thought for sure the refs were going to say that was a gb td

  6. jakec4 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:21 PM

    The officials are ruining this game. The Bears keep getting jobbed on really easy to see bad calls.

  7. ihaterogergoodell says: Dec 29, 2013 5:21 PM

    Don’t worry GB fans, the refs are handing this one to you. What a bunch of pansy calls, especially that roughing call.

  8. thatswhatimsayin says: Dec 29, 2013 5:22 PM

    I didn’t know Roethlisberger plays QB for the Packers. Holy crap does #12 look fat

  9. thepftpoet says: Dec 29, 2013 5:22 PM

    Aaron Rodgers can’t even pass on this pathetic bears defense.

    Worst franchise in the NFL

  10. larryboodry says: Dec 29, 2013 5:26 PM

    That bogus roughing call just probably cost us three points.

    “It’s unclear whether Rodgers was intending the pass for wideout Jarrett Boykin or tight end Andrew Quarless”

    What IS clear is that Rodgers is still the biggest cupcake in the league.

  12. contra74 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:28 PM

    The refs are keeping it innocent until the end of the 3rd quarter at which point I expect pass interference calls to go wild. Does vegas have a line on the refs?

  13. oldschoolnflman says: Dec 29, 2013 5:28 PM

    What? A system QB that got hot for a playoff run is struggling? No way! I guess their one play of 4 receivers (2 running streaks, two running posts) and a rb leaking out of the backfield isn’t working? Ugh sucks. Real qbs in the NFL are Brady, Manning and Big Ben, Brees . that’s it. Sorry cheese heads the cheesiest qb in the history of the game won’t get it done today. If Rodgers played in the 80s he wouldn’t have seen the field.

  14. jarmint1 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:32 PM

    Watching this game,being a Vikes fan,really makes you aware how bad the NFL wants the Pack and Rodgers in the playoffs. 2 of the worse calls so far this year, clearly not a touchback and clearly not roughing. Packers and Rodgers over and over again……think the Bears are playing today to!!!! Cmon FOX tell Buck and Aikman to take there Packers jerseys off

  15. cheddarisbeddar says: Dec 29, 2013 5:38 PM

    How about those Bears not playing to the whistle? TD Green Bay!

  16. meatcarroll says: Dec 29, 2013 5:38 PM

    Bring in Flynn!

  17. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:40 PM

    typical gb paid refs . just call it for gb already

  18. tokyosandblaster says: Dec 29, 2013 5:41 PM

    Wait… McClellin comes and says he’s going to hit rodgers, and then does, and you simpletons are surprised at a flag?

    He keeps his mouth shut this week, and it isn’t called. His own stupid fault.

    The fumble and TD was the correct call.

  19. contra74 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:42 PM

    The refs would have called it an incomplete pass if it was cutler with the fumble and Marshall with the fumble recovery for a TD.

  20. thatswhatimsayin says: Dec 29, 2013 5:42 PM

    Someone missed a free shot to paste Rodgers while blocking downfield on a live ball

  21. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:43 PM

    man is the nfl league office in the bag for gb. by the way manning just threw his 54th td. how many does rodgers have again?

  22. usdcoyotesfan says: Dec 29, 2013 5:45 PM

    First of all, the touchback call didn’t even matter. Chicago went on to get an interception, which led to a Bears touchdown. Also, the Packers got the 3 deserved field goal after the roughing call. Even if the calls are wrong, they’re not affecting the game.

  23. tokyosandblaster says: Dec 29, 2013 5:45 PM

    Let me guess…. the Bears fumbled…. BECAUSE OF THE REFS!!

  24. bearshaterseverywhere says: Dec 29, 2013 5:53 PM

    Wow. Is this a real game. what a joke. The NFL wants the Packers to win. Seriously considering no watching the NFL anymore. This is football, Rodgers doesn’t deserve special treatment cuz he choose to play today. Not even a real 1st half.

  25. johngaltwho says: Dec 29, 2013 5:55 PM

    Aaron is rusty. Only feels comfortable throwing to Nelson. Packers should be up by three scores given the gifts they’ve received from the Bears (and the officials).

  26. thesconnienation says: Dec 29, 2013 5:56 PM

    Is Cutler playing in this game? Haven’t really seen him.

  27. theluisrivas says: Dec 29, 2013 6:01 PM

    How about those Packers not being able to score an honest TD? Bear down!

  28. cheddarisbeddar says: Dec 29, 2013 6:02 PM

    No matter how soft a roughing penalty is, Rodgers was already whistled down and #99 made unnecessary contact on Rodgers while on the ground. May have been light, yes, but that’s still considered a penalty. Don’t know why all you Viking pansies are whining about that. You should be worrying about your game next week.

    Wait a second….

  29. cheddarisbeddar says: Dec 29, 2013 6:16 PM

    I didn’t know there was a stat line for “honesty”.

  30. themagicfanguy says: Dec 29, 2013 6:20 PM

    Love seeing all the haters on here crying and moaning, keep it up losers.

  31. contra74 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:21 PM

    I thought only QBs wore those wrap around rib protectors so why is lacy wearing…wait…yea that’s his gut.

  34. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:32 PM

    did cutler complete that one? i havent seen rodgers throw one over 20 yards in the air

  35. larryboodry says: Dec 29, 2013 6:38 PM

    Another bogus call for GB, Jeffery was in. Luckily it didn’t matter. Still pathetic refereeing any way you look at it.

  36. tokyosandblaster says: Dec 29, 2013 6:40 PM

    Man…. the refs are just giving this game to the bears. That was a catch!!!!

    See? I can cry, too!

  37. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:40 PM

    and theres rodgers whining again about pass interference

  38. photoguy13 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:42 PM

    Quarles got robbed on an excellent 18 yard catch.

  39. contra74 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:44 PM

    Anyone else wondering why McCarthy is wearing a t shirt on a night like this?

  40. stellarperformance says: Dec 29, 2013 6:46 PM

    Pack needs to wake up.

  41. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:47 PM

    so if chicago scores will the refs subtract 8 points?

  42. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:49 PM

    nice defense rodgers

  43. leatherface2012 says: Dec 29, 2013 6:52 PM

  45. contra74 says: Dec 29, 2013 7:20 PM

    Packers need to start calling those plays with high PI percentages. You know you have them McCarthy, call em LOL

  46. thesconnienation says: Dec 29, 2013 7:36 PM

    about as good as when either san fran or carolina blows them up

  52. akahlonfootball says: Dec 30, 2013 12:58 AM

    The only questionable call was the unnecessary roughness call on McClellin. The call is legitimate since Rodgers was already whistled down prior to the hit. However, I disagreed with it since McClellin simply fell on him. However, that is just 1 call that could of gone either way. The people saying that the refs were on GBs side are idiots. Besides the unnecessary roughness call, the game was well officiated. I’m asking all the butthurt Bears fans, How was this game handed to the Packers? How did the refs blow the coverage that led to the Cobb TD? The Bears simply lost it. Be gracious in both victory and defeat. Don’t act like there was any wrongdoing. Both teams deserved to win and GB was the team to do it. Simple as that.
