131229-in-game-updates-1b-300CHICAGO–Matt Forte scored on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler, and the Bears held a 7-0 lead over the Packers after one quarter of play at Soldier Field on Sunday.

The Packers defense pitched an impressive three-and-out after the Bears began the opening series of the game at the Packers 42-yard line following a long kickoff return by Devin Hester and a personal foul penalty on Victor Alyewa.

Aaron Rodgers made his return to action with a possession that began at the Packers 20-yard line.

Right away, Eddie Lacy went to work with a 14-yard run around left end. Rodgers completed his first pass to Jarrett Boykin for 5 yards. His next toss was to Andrew Quarless for 9 yards to near midfield.

The Packers faced a third-and-3 at the Bears 45. Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson on a slant for 14 yards and a first down at the Chicago 31.

Lacy gained 6 yards on a cutback run to the left side. Following a drop by James Starks, Rodgers faced third-and-4. Rodgers’ pass over the middle for Nelson resulted in a holding penalty against Bears defensive back Isaiah Frey and a first down for the Packers at the Bears 20.

Following two short completions, the Packers faced third-and-5. Rodgers pitched a 6-yard completion to Nelson.

As snow began to fall, Lacy gained 4 to the 5-yard line. A sack for no yards lost forced third-and-goal from the Bears 5. Rodgers was then intercepted in the end zone by Chris Conte.

A Jay Cutler completion and a 20-yard run by Matt Forte put the ball quickly at the Green Bay 47-yard line. Cutler then hit Brandon Marshall down the left sideline, over Sam Shields, for 37 yards to the Packers 8-yard line.

The Bears faced third-and-goal from the 4-yard line. Cutler threw to Forte for a touchdown that gave the Bears a 7-0 lead with 2:07 to play in the first quarter.
