131229-in-game-updates-3a-300CHICAGO–The Bears were on the Packers 5-yard line and held a 21-20 lead when the third quarter ended at Soldier Field on Sunday.

Following a three-and-out to start the second half, the Packers allowed a 49-yard punt return by Devin Hester and the Bears began at the Packers 30-yard line.

Matt Forte found 15 yards up the middle. Forte converted third down with a 3-yard run to the 5. One play later, Forte cut back to his left and strolled into the end zone untouched. The Bears led, 14-13, with 10:46 to play in the third quarter. The drive was 30 yards in five plays.

Eddie Lacy broke loose on a 17-yard run that nearly went the distance. On third-and-1 from the Packers 46, James Starks tore through a huge in the middle of the Bears defense for 41 yards and a first down at the Bears 13. On third-and-four, Aaron Rodgers threw to Randall Cobb for a 7-yard touchdown that put the Packers back into the lead, 20-14, with 7:27 to play in the third quarter.

The Packers’ next kickoff was of the pooch, anti-Hester variety and left the Bears to begin at their 26-yard line. Three plays later, however, Sam Shields was burned by Alson Jeffery for a 67-yard bomb from Jay Cutler. Forte scored from a yard out with 5:04 to play in the third quarter and the Bears were back in the lead, 21-20.

Rodgers rallied back with an 18-yard pass to Jordy Nelson. The Packers were now in their no-huddle offense. An incompletion was challenged by Mike McCarthy, who lost the challenge. That left third-and-10 from the Packers 38. Rodgers threw incomplete and the Packers were forced to punt.

Forte ran for a couple of first downs and across midfield. Then Cutler dumped a pass into the left flat to a wide-0pen Forte, who gained 33 yards to the 8-yard line.
