Packers Win Ugly Against Bears
With the all time series being a tie at 94-94-6, who would be able to break the tie on Thursday Night between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers? Aaron Rodgers 18-of-26 completions for 179 yards passing and 4 touchdowns in a 35-14 Packers victory over the Bears.
Packers running back Ty Montgomery left the game for Green Bay in the first with broken ribs. He finished with 5 carries for 28 yards rushing. DaVante Adams caught a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first-quarter for Green Bay. Randall Cobb caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers later in the first.

In the third quarter, Packers receiver DaVante was viciously hit in the head by Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan. Adams was immediately laying on the ground and he was carted off the field and taken to a local hospital. Trevathan should face a suspension after that dirty and uncalled for hit.
