Packers beat Bears 24-14
Sunday, October 17, 2021

(CHICAGO) – Aaron Rodgers didn't need to say it, but he couldn't resist. Rodgers turned toward the crowd after running for a touchdown to help secure yet another win for Green Bay over Chicago. Then, he yelled, "I still own you! I still own you!" Rodgers threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, leading the Packers to a 24-14 victory over the Bears on Sunday. The Packers (5-1) beat the Bears (3-3) for the 20th time in 23 games counting the playoffs and improved to 22-5 with Rodgers as the starter against Chicago. They also prevented their rivals from tying them for the NFC North lead. Rodgers finished 17 of 23 for 195 yards and a 128 passer rating. Davante Adams caught four passes for 89 yards, including a 41 yarder that helped set up Rodgers' TD scramble. A rare win over Green Bay would have been a major statement for the Bears after they looked lost a few weeks ago. They steadied themselves by beating Detroit and Las Vegas, only to be taken down by the Packers. Justin Fields led the Bears on an 80-yard touchdown drive on their first possession that ended with rookie Khalil Herbert scoring from the 1, only to cool off after that. Fields was 16 for 27 for 174 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Herbert ran for a season-high 97 yards with David Montgomery (sprained knee) on injured reserve and Damien Williams on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
