Packers...37 Bears...3

November 17, 2008|Associated Press

GREEN BAY, WIS. — Ryan Grant finally hit his stride for the Green Bay Packers, rushing for 145 yards and a touchdown in a 37-3 victory over the Chicago Bears.

The win boosts the playoff hopes of the Packers (5-5), who had been on a two-game losing streak.

Chicago (5-5) didn't look like a division co-leader or playoff contender on either side of the ball. Kyle Orton started at quarterback for the Bears after sitting out last Sunday's game because of a sprained right ankle.

But Orton was outplayed by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who completed 23 of 30 passes for 227 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception.

Orton, who was limping at times throughout the game, completed 13 of 26 passes for 138 yards, with only two passes going to a wide receiver against the Packers' secondary.

Quoteworthy: "They ran it, they threw it. They did whatever they wanted to do." -- Brian Urlacher, Bears linebacker
