Aaron Rodgers was efficient and clinical in the first half, but the Green Bay Packers were only able to build a 14-3 lead over a Chicago Bears squad starting Josh McCown at quarterback. Green Bay scored on its first and last drives of the half, each of which ended with a touchdown pass on a slant route.
Rodgers finished the half with 148 yards and two touchdowns, but the Green Bay running game was missing in action again. The Packers rushed for 14 yards on six carries while shying away from the ground game. James Jones and Ryan Grant each caught two passes for 34 yards to lead the way, and Rodgers completed throws to eight different receivers.
Chicago was the polar opposite of Green Bay, doing its damage on the ground instead of through the air. Kahlil Bell led all rushers with 89 yards as the Bears ran the ball on 25 plays -- for 126 yards -- in the first half. McCown was six-of-nine for 81 yards, but also threw an interception in the half.
