Recap


Bears 27, Packers 20:
Backup Josh McCown threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns as visiting Chicago knocked out Aaron Rodgers and snapped Green Bay's four-game winning streak.

Matt Forte rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown and Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery each caught a scoring pass for the Bears (5-3), who ended a six-game losing streak at the hands of the Packers (5-3) and moved into a three-way tie atop the NFC North with Green Bay and Detroit.

Former MVP Rodgers suffered a left shoulder injury on the opening possession of the game and did not return, forcing Seneca Wallace into his first action since the final day of the 2011 season - which also was the last time McCown made a start. Wallace finished 11-of-19 for 114 yards and one interception while Eddy Lacy rushed for 150 yards and a touchdown.

James Starks scored on a 32-yard run following a blocked punt to give the Packers a 10-7 lead, but Forte's 1-yard TD run and Robbie Gould's 24-yard field goal on the final play of the half put the Bears ahead 17-10. Lacy broke loose for a 56-yard run to set up his own 1-yard plunge and Mason Crosby kicked a 23-yard field goal following an onside kick as Green Bay reclaimed the lead 20-17 with 8:45 left in the third.

Devin Hester's 23-yard punt return gave Chicago great field position and McCown moved the Bears 47 yards in seven plays, capping it with a 6-yard scoring toss to Jeffery with 2:41 left in the third. The Bears converted a fourth-and-1 at their own 32-yard line and ate up 8:55 on an 18-play, 80-yard march that culminated with Gould's 27-yard field goal with 50 seconds to play.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Rodgers was injured on a third-down play when Chicago's Shea McClellin posted one of his three sacks and drove Rodgers' left shoulder into the turf. ... McCown and Wallace each made their last start on the same day - Jan. 1, 2012, the final day of the regular season. ... Forte went over 100 yards for the first time since the final game last season and added five receptions for 54 yards. ... Lacy has rushed for 545 yards in his last five games, the most in the NFL during that span.
