Packers over Chicago Bears in prime time game, 23-10
GREEN BAY (AP) — The Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears in “Week Two” of the NFL’s regular season — during a Thursday night prime time game at Lambeau Field. The final score: Packers 23, Bears 10.
Defenses dominated a scoreless first quarter between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. The Packers led 13-0 over the Bears at halftime.
Green Bay got a scare when Aaron Rodgers appeared to hurt his right arm while being sacked during the Packers’ second possession. The ball slipped out of Rodgers’ hand awkwardly as he tried to throw a pass on the next play, and backup Graham Harrell started warming up on the sideline, but Rodgers went back in on the next possession.
Rodgers and Jay Cutler both were sacked twice in the first quarter, and neither offense threatened to score.
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was inactive after hurting his groin late in Sunday’s loss to San Francisco.
Bears cornerback Charles Tillman played despite a shin injury.
Running back Matt Forte left the game with an ankle injury. Forte went to the locker room in the middle of the third quarter on Thursday night. He appeared to twist his right ankle while being tackled by the Packers’ Charles Woodson.
Before leaving the game, Forte provided the bulk of what little offense the Bears could manage. He had seven carries for 31 yards and caught four passes for 49 yards.
