GREEN BAY–The Packers were coasting to victory, 48-7, heading into the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Bears.
Following a “blocked punt” by Jarrett Boykin — Boykin was in on punter Patrick O’Donnell so quickly the official ruling was fumble — Mason Crosby booted a 20-yard field goal to increase the Packers’ lead to 45-0 with 10:48 to play in the third quarter.
The Bears finally got on the scoreboard when quarterback Jay Cutler hit wide receiver Brandon Marshall with a 45-yard touchdown pass with 7:44 to play in the third quarter.
Aaron Rodgers left the game following the Bears touchdown, replaced by Matt Flynn. Guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang were also replaced in the lineup.
Crosby booted a 52-yard field goal with 5:07 to play, upping Green Bay’s lead to 48-7.
