Bears vs. Packers score update: Chicago trails Green Bay, 14-7

USA TODAY Sports

From leading midway through the second quarter to trailing at halftime, the Bears will need to figure out what's gone wrong before coming back out for the third quarter.

The Chicago Bears trail the Green Bay Packers, 14-7, going into halftime Sunday afternoon despite getting the game's first score midway through the second quarter. It's a disappointing turn of events for the Bears after initially starting the game quite well.

Chicago has dominated the running game so far, but the Bears' secondary has struggled to stop Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has passed for 164 yards and two scores. Between that and a costly interception by Jay Cutler late in the half, the Bears managed to turn a 7-0 lead into a 14-7 deficit in a matter of minutes.

Matt Forte has powered the Bears' offense so far with 13 carries for 58 yards, including 22 on a big run that set the team up for its only score. That touchdown was an impressive one, though, with Brandon Marshall turning a routine pass underneath into a 15-yard score:

That play put the Bears in a seemingly strong position at home, but the Packers quickly turned the tides with a seven-play, 89-yard drive on their very next possession.
