Sunday Night Football: Aaron Rodgers throws four TDs as Packers rout Bears

USA TODAY Sports

Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes, and the Packers Defense forced three Mitchell Trubisky turnovers as Green Bay steamrolled the Bears 41-25 on Sunday Night Football.

Six different players scored for the Packers, who moved to 8-3 with the win. They have the Eagles, Lions, Panthers, Titans and Bears remaining.

The Saints have the best record in the NFC at 9-2, but the Packers hold the head-to-head tiebreaker with a 37-30 victory in Week 3.

The Bears fell to 5-6 and into a second-place tie in the NFC North with the Vikings with their fifth consecutive loss.

Rodgers was 21-of-29 for 211 yards and touchdowns of 12, 5, 2 and 39 yards to Davante Adams, Marcedes Lewis, Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan. The Packers’ scoring drives covered 75, 75, 80, 53 and 66 yards.

The Packers’ other touchdown came on a 14-yard fumble return by Preston Smith as Za'Darius Smith forced Trubisky to lose the football.

Packers safety Darnell Savage had two interceptions of Trubisky before injuring his back.

Trubisky, who returned to the starting lineup after Nick Foles‘ hip injury last week, went 26-of-46 for 242 yards with three touchdowns to go with the two interceptions and the lost fumble.

The Packers led 41-10 before Trubisky directed back-to-back scoring drives. David Montgomery had 16 touches for 143 yards and one touchdown.

Rodgers was not sacked or even hit, and the Bears forced only eight hurries. Rodgers eclipsed 50,000 career passing yards.

Bears pass rusher Khalil Mack had only three tackles and no other stats.

  1. Poor Trubiscuit! Finally had a chance to redeem himself, and immediately pooped his pants. Good thing for him Canada is just miles away… See you in the CFL soon, Mitch!

  2. The Packers were the cat and the Bears were the mouse….the cat played with the mouse just to amuse themselves until they killed it. It showed how far the Bears have fallen, it is time to blow the whole thing up. Maybe, Rodgers will have retired by the time the Bears re-build. Pray for a franchise QB and a real offense. Good bye pace and Nagy!!!

  3. If da beers had a decent QB the game would have been a game but poor Trubiski he’s just not cut out for the NFL.
    Pathetic effort on his part.

  4. It’s always a good day when the Bears lose, but I have to admit this one surprised me. I wasn’t expecting Green Bay to be able to move the ball at will against the Chicago defense, and a week after the Colts reminded everyone that the best way to beat the Packers is to shove the ball down their throats, I’m baffled that the Bears put the game on Trubisky’s arm, rather than Montgomery’s legs.

  5. Hopefully the Packers’ defense is finally turning the corner. 15 of the Bears’ points came in garbage time.

  6. the Bears Problem is not the QB it is Nagy and Lazor two village idiots at calling plays.
    Montgomery busted a 57 yard run. They somehow yet again ran it less then 20 times.
    The Bears have run the ball less then 20 times 5 games. They are 1-4.
    Eagles 0-3
    Jags 0-3
    Bucs 0-3
    Texans 1-2
    Broncos 1-2
    Steelers 2-0 against the Ravens, and Cowboys
    The league is 9-43-1 Tampa has done it 3 of the last 4 games
    The Bears under as Playcaller 5-4 66.3% pass 42.7 pass plays to 21.7 Runs
    Under Lazor 0-2 71.3% pass 41 pass plays 16.5 Runs

    The Bears are 67.1% pass on the season. with 43.3 pass plays a game
    and 21.2 run plays a game.

    Last yr the Bears went 8-8 throwing it 61.3%
    39.1 pass plays to 24.7 Runs
    They play the Lions and Texans the next two games
    They need to establish the run
    Those two teams are very pass, pass, pass
    like the Bears

    The Bears in the 5 wins 62.4% pass
    because of the Bucs game and the Falcons game
    In Those 2 games they were 71.5% pass
    the other 3 wins 55.9% pass

    In the losses on the season 71.2% pass
    That is why I keep saying the Mike Leach attack which throws
    78 to 80% of the time won’t work in the NFL.

    There are more losing teams then winning teams around the league at or around
    60% pass.
    15 Below .500 teams and 5 above .500 teams.

    Time for Nagy to go look at some film of the Bears from the 80s
    when they Ran the ball and relied on their defense to win them games.

  7. Bears look like an 8-8 team
    If they lose to the Lions, Texans or Jags Nagy should be fired for sure.
    I don’t see them beating the Vikings or the Packers.
    The Lions, Texans and Jags throw way too much just like the Bears
    the Bears throw it teh most in the league.

  8. Nagy could be a decent coordinator riding the coat tails of an experienced HC, but Pace has no business being a GM. He whiffed on a franchise altering pick with Trubisky and that should be reason alone to term him. However, the way old man Rodgers dismantled the Bears D was pathetic. Did Fangio really make that much of difference? I think evidence suggests yes.

    Regardless, even though the Packers have had TWO decades of HOF QBs, they still only managed 2 Super Bowl wins during that time. Not happening this year either, cheeseheads 🙂 Not saying I wouldn’t take it and have a perennial contender, but at least they weren’t the Patriots.

  9. They keep billing this game as some sort of big rivalry. This hasnt been a rivalry the last 30 years….GB is 44-19 vs Chicago since 1990.

    Since 2009 GB has a 20-4 record against Chicago.

    The games are usually lopsided as well.

  10. Last 10 years: 2011 to today the Bears are 3 wins and 16 losses to Green Bay. Last night was just more of the same. From owners to scouts (and all in the middle) things need to change.

  11. The biggest difference among all the NFCN teams and their expectations for success remains to be Aaron Charles Rodgers. Nothing has changed.

  12. The Packers are in-control of their division and the Bears are now tied with the luckiest team in the division.

  13. Trubisky looked like he was going to break out in tears at several points in the game. doesn’t exactly inspire his teammates very much……

  14. As a long time Packers fan, I have always respected the Bears. They have had some of the greatest players ever in their history. Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s, I remember the Monsters Of The Midway defenses they had. I still say the best LB’er in the history of the NFL was Dick Butkus. And two of the best RB’s ever were the incomparable Gayle Sayers and the magnificent Walter Payton. I never saw Bronko Nagurski play, or course, but I read everything I could get my hands on about him when I was a kid and he was one of the reasons I fell in love with football. I mean, has there ever been a better name for a football player than Bronko Nagurski?
    So — when the Packers play the Bears, I always know it’s going to be a brutal battle no matter who wins. They are always a very physical, tough team.
    To see the Bears play so good on defense year after year and see them struggle on offense — largely because they never seem to develop a star QB — actually makes me feel bad for Bears fans, who are great fans.
    Don’t get me wrong — I always want the Packers to win when we play the Bears, but I do feel bad for Bears fans. They, like the Packers, are one of the NFL’s original franchises and their history is as great as the Packers’ history. Bears fans — like Packers fans — always stand behind their team no matter how they play.
    So — to all Bears fans — I sincerely hope you find a star QB and get back to being one of the top teams in the NFL. It makes our great rivalry with you even greater when it’s like that. Oh — and I ALWAYS root for the Bears when they play the Vikings.

  15. Nagy would be better at just saying “We stink right now” at the NFL required post-game pressers.

  16. Nagy needs to go after the final whistle in Week 17. Sooner would be better but doubt that would happen.

  17. Beat DOWN, Chicago Bears. The Packer offense was not supposed to make it look that easy against the Monsters of the Midway.

  18. Whoever was in charge when the Bears drafted Trubisky over Mahomes and Watson should have been fired immediately.

  19. Not a big Aaron Rodgers fan because I think he’s a tool but I can’t not enjoy how talented he is. When NE is eventually eliminated I could jump on the Packers playoff band wagon for the ride.

  20. Like I said weeks ago nobody in this division can touch the Packers. Might as well call it a day on this division.

  21. It’s always a good day when the Bears lose, but I have to admit this one surprised me. I wasn’t expecting Green Bay to be able to move the ball at will against the Chicago defense, and a week after the Colts reminded everyone that the best way to beat the Packers is to shove the ball down their throats, I’m baffled that the Bears put the game on Trubisky’s arm, rather than Montgomery’s legs.

    Especially after Montgomery ripped off a huge run on one of his first runs.

  22. The Packers are in-control of their division and the Bears are now tied with the luckiest team in the division.

    Actually the Vikings are in 2nd place, they hold the tie breaker over Chicago head to head as of today.

  23. Like I said weeks ago nobody in this division can touch the Packers. Might as well call it a day on this division.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    I would agree, the NFL season is a marathon not a sprint, Packers have been relatively healthy and are getting key players back for the downstretch of the season. Not sure if anyone in the NFC will be able to beat the AFC Champions in the Super Bowl. AFC is LOADED.

  24. “If they lose to the Lions, Texans or Jags Nagy should be fired for sure.”
    _________

    Texans are playing pretty well now since they dumped O’Brien and not inconceivable the Lions could see a bump with Patricia being gone. Decent chance the Bears lose to both of them.

  25. ‘Can Nagy last another week? Surely this is the last straw?’
    would be great if the Bears hired Matt Patricia as their new coach.Patricia resembles a bear so he fits right in and he is a great coach,just as Belechek.

  26. “Poor Trubiscuit! Finally had a chance to redeem himself, and immediately pooped his pants. Good thing for him Canada is just miles away… See you in the CFL soon, Mitch!”
    No, Indiana is just miles away.Canada is a pretty good trek from Chicago,you got Chicago and Detroit mixed up.

  27. Rodgers is the best, but the O-line is pretty good too. You can’t judge the Pack D based on a Bears game — I think my favorite team and their mediocre D held the Bears to under 200 yards.

    Just change your SN to greenandyellowguy and get it over with. We all know you are a cheesehead. BTW, I also am a Viking season ticket holder.
