Rodgers and Jones reunite to lead the Pack to victory, 31-27.
When Aaron Rodgers and James Jones wore the same uniform for the first time in a year, excellence occurred. Jones scored two touchdowns, both amazing catches. Jones was the main receiver Sunday because Jordy Nelson suffered a torn ACL and Randall Cobb had soreness in his shoulder. Jones caught 4 receptions on 51 yards. Rodgers threw for three scores, 189 yards and was 18 for 23 overall. Green Bay’s defense let the Bears drive down on the opening drive but held them to a field goal. They couldn’t stop Matt Forte and the Bears offense in the first half but ended up holding the Bears to 13 points in the first half. ” We’re not happy with the amount of yardage we gave up.”,nose tackle B.J. Raji said. ” We’ve got to clean it up.” The defense held Chicago to 10 points and a touchdown catch by Martellius Bennett late in the game. Mike McCarthy, the Packers head coach, is now 14-6 against the Bears and 10-1 since 2010.
Randall Cobb also scored a touchdown, a five yard pass with 10:26 left in the fourth. The game was sealed when Clay Matthews picked off Jay Cutler in the fourth. Eddie Lacy later scored on a two yard rush. Even though Green Bay didn’t clobber Chicago like last year, a win is a win and the Pack is 1-0.
