The Packers managed just one first down in three offensive series with Seneca Wallace at QB in the second quarter, and the Bears put together two scoring drives to take a 17-10 lead into halftime.
The Bears took a 14-10 lead with a 60-yard touchdown drive early in the second quarter, just as it was announced that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was out for the rest of the game.
QB Josh McCown connected on passes of 33 yards to RB Matt Forte and 27 yards to TE Martellus Bennett, moving the ball to the 1. Forte than plunged in on second-and-goal.
The Packers went three-and-out on their first two series of the quarter. They were nearing scoring range on their third drive of the period, but on third-and-11 from the Chicago 40, Wallace’s pass was juggled by TE Andrew Quarless along the sideline and ruled incomplete.
The Packers had to punt and downed the ball on the Chicago 1-yard line. The Bears responded with a 93-yard drive, all the way to the Green Bay 6, and settled for a 24-yard field goal on the final play of the half.
WR Brandon Marshall had catches of 16 and 14 yards on that drive, while RB Michael Bush added a 15-yard reception and McCown scrambled for 20 yards.
