151126-q4-in-game-updates-650GREEN BAY — The Packers’ offensive woes resurfaced in a 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears, on a cold and rainy night at Lambeau Field on Thursday.

Aaron Rodgers struggled against dropped passes to throw for 202 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Rodgers appeared to have been examined for a left-hand injury in the third quarter, but he didn’t miss a play.

Just inside three minutes to play in the game, the Packers began a drive at their 20-yard line. At the two-minute warning, the Packers had moved to their 49-yard line.

The big play was to follow. Rodgers completed a pass over the middle to Randall Cobb, who completed a catch-and-run, 32-yard gain to the Bears 19-yard line.

On third-and-7, Rodgers threw to Davante Adams for a first down at the 8. Adams had struggled with drops throughout the game.

Rodgers then threw four consecutive incompletions. His third-down pass was in and out of James Jones’ hands.

The Packers fell to 7-4 and out of a first-place tie with the Vikings. The Bears are 5-6.
