Packers Vs. Bears: James Starks Scores To Give Green Bay 14-0 Lead

After a delay in scoring, largely caused by the injury to Green Bay Packers LT Chad Clifton that gave Chicago Bears DE Julius Peppers a momentary quarterback buffet, the Pack is back in the end zone. RB James Starks levitated into the end zone from four yards out, appearing at first to make contact with the ground. Bears coach Lovie Smith elected not to challenge, and it was probably the right move, as Starks somehow never touched turf.

The Bears have gained all of 33 yards, with their most recent drive starting inside their own five and ending there as well. A punt mishandling by CB Tramon Williams gave Green Bay the ball at midfield, which is still really nice field position.

Aaron Rodgers is eight-of-11 with 138 yards to Jay Cutler’s 25. Matt Forte has gained, um, all of Chicago’s yardage so far, 25 of those yards on the ground.
