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.
