Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers famously declared this past year he “owns” the Chicago Bears, and he backed that up Sunday night by spearheading a 27-10 victory at Lambeau Field.
Following a lackluster performance in the growing season opener the other day, Rodgers was nearly pristine contrary to the Bears. He went 19-of-25 for 234 yards and two touchdowns, but he also coughed up a fumble for the next straight game.
The turnover notwithstanding, Rodgers helped propel the Packers with their first win of the growing season. He previously a string of 14 straight completions at one point, which tied a lifetime career high.
Green Bay running back Aaron Jones also had a superb game, carrying the ball 15 times for 132 yards and a touchdown and adding three catches for 38 yards and another score.
The Packers used a 21-point second quarter to place the overall game out of reach. The team scored just three points in the next half, but that has been all it needed.
A lot of the social media marketing commentary featured praise for Rodgers, Jones and Green Bay’s stellar first-half performance:

Sunday night’s game was a cakewalk for Green Bay, which can explain the quiet second half following the fireworks in the next quarter. The Packers were on cruise control against a Bears team that has been clearly overmatched.
However, Green Bay will need to play a whole game next Sunday once the team travels to handle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Packers surely are hoping to transport the momentum from Sunday night’s victory into next week’s matchup.
