Bears lead, 7-0, after one quarter at Soldier Field

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on December 29, 2013 – 4:00 pm

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.

    Another trip into the red zone without points. Been a problem all year, even with Rodgers. Hope that stops.

    Aaron does look rusty with all the high throws. Lucky to be in the lead. Can’t depend on Packers defense in the 2nd half. Offense needs to get it together.
