Packers control division race with 41-25 win over Bears –

Packers lead Bears 27-10 at halftime

The second quarter began with Rodgers rolling out and finding an open Lewis for the 5-yard touchdown, extending Green Bay’s lead to 13-3. Lewis’ touchdown, his fourth with the Packers, was his 400th career reception. He’s just the seventh TE in NFL history with 400-plus catches and 200-plus games played.

On the Bears’ next possession, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky heaved up a deep ball on first down from the Green Bay 38 that was intercepted by Darnell Savage in the Packers’ end zone.

The Packers matriculated the ball down the field with a series of underneath passes, including a 7-yard completion to Adams on third-and-1. Green Bay faced a fourth-and-2 situation from the Chicago 28 but Head Coach Matt LaFleur chose to go for it.

With Adams starting in the backfield, Rodgers found tight end Robert Tonyan open for a 14-yard pass on the left side of the field. The 13-play, 80-yard drive culminated with a leaping 2-yard TD pass to Allen Lazard to put Green Bay up 20-3 with 4:34 left in the first half.

Chicago was facing a third-and-17 after a Charles Leno Jr. hold, setting up a Za’Darius Smith strip sack of Trubisky that Preston Smith recovered and returned for a 14-yard touchdown to extend the Packers’ lead to 27-3.

The Bears responded with a 14-play, 87-yard scoring drive that ended with a 1-yard TD pass from Trubisky to Allen Robinson to cut the Packers’ lead to 27-10 at halftime.
