Bears Bye: Packers Shut Out The Jets At Home, Take NFC North Lead

Mason Crosby's 3 field goals accounted for all the scoring Sunday in New Meadowlands stadium. Mark Sanchez threw for 256 yards for New York, but couldn't close the deal. Aaron Rodgers only managed 170 in the air. Both teams had missed FG's and incomplete passes aplenty, aided by the wind. Green Bay also had two interceptions, both of which were completed passes that were snatched away from Jets receivers.

The wind may have accounted for the low scoring game, but it doesn't explain why the Packers Brandon Jackson had only 55 yards rushing, while the Jets LaDainian Tomlinson only managed 54 on 16 runs.
