The Packers defeated the Bears 35-16, and Chicago actually drew first blood early on with a 7-0 lead and even held the Packers scoreless in the first quarter. The reality is there’s just too much quality in this Green Bay team right now as they’re the clear-cut favorite in the NFC heading into the playoffs.
The Bears certainly had their chances but didn’t do themselves any favors in the game by settling for field goals. Chicago kicked three field goals in the game, and on two occasions, the yards to gain was only two yards. That’s not exactly the recipe to beat a great quarterback like Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers likely locked up the MVP award with his performance yesterday. He was extremely efficient in completing 19-of-24 passes with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He could have possibly had even more touchdowns had Marquez Valdes-Scantling not dropped two passes.
Rodgers did a good job of spreading the ball around as Valdez-Scantling, Davante Adams, Robert Tonyan, and Dominique Dafney all caught touchdown passes on the day. The future hall of fame quarterback finished the game with a 93.2 QBR.
