Bears Vs. Packers Final: Green Bay Eliminates Chicago From Playoffs 35-21

The Chicago Bears, who looked like a playoff team before Jay Cutler got injured, saw their playoff hopes end Sunday night in Green Bay as the Packers finished off the Bears 35-21. Aaron Rodgers threw for 283 yards and five touchdowns as the packers clinched home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

Chicago's loss, meanwhile, clinches at least a wild card berth for the Atlanta Falcons, and leaves only one spot in the NFC playoffs to be decided between the Giants and Cowboys next Sunday night. The Bears gave up a two yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson on the first play of the quarter to all but seal the game.

Chicago did manage a face-saving score midway through the quarter. Kellen Davis caught a one yard touchdown pass from Josh McNown with 7:59 left in the game. McNown added two more points on a two-point conversion run, but his interception thrown late in the quarter proved to be a backbreaker. The Bears offense generated over 440 yards, but two interceptions by McCown led to Green Bay touchdowns.

McCown led a second scoring drive in the final five minutes, with Robbie Gould hitting a 30-yard field goal with 1:11 left for the final margin.


Bears Vs. Packers Score Update: Green Bay In Control 14-3 At Half

If you take away the first and last drives of the first half the Chicago Bears defense has been rock solid. Unfortunately, the Green Bay Packers used the first drive and the last drive of the half to put points on the board. Green Bay holds a 14-3 lead at halftime at Lambeau Field, and the Bears have had plenty of mistakes that have prevented them from scoring points.

After the Bears missed a first quarter field goal Josh McCown was intercepted by Clay Matthews at the Green Bay 24 yard line. The bears forced a three and out, then responded with a lengthy drive that was capped by a 35-yard Robbie Gould field goal. That kick came with 1:56 left in the half, but it left plenty of time for the Packers offense.

It took Aaron Rodgers only 1:42 to move 65 yards in seven plays before Rodgers hit James Jones for a short touchdown pass to put Green Bay ahead 14-3.


Bears Name Josh McCown Starting QB For Week 16

It may be seen by many Chicago Bears fans as "too little, too late," but the move has been made: The Bears announced on Wednesday that Josh McCown will in Week 16 when the team takes on the Green Bay Packers on Christmas night. In his four starts as Jay Cutler's replacement, Hanie threw three touchdowns to nine interceptions, completed only 50% of his passes and compiled a dismal overall quarterback rating of 41.8.

McCown, who was signed as a free agent by the Bears as insurance after Cutler's injury, had not thrown a pass in the NFL since 2009 before relieving Hanie late in last week's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He threw two passes vs. Seattle on Sunday, one of which was intercepted.

In 2007, McCown appeared in nine games for the Oakland Raiders, throwing 10 touchdowns to 11 interceptions, compiling a QB rating of 69.4.
