Packers lead Bears 21-17 at halftime

Posted:

CHICAGO (WAOW) -- Behind two touchdown throws from Aaron Rodgers, the Packers lead the Bears 21-17 at halftime at Soldier Field in Chicago.

The Bears struck first, marching down the field with a 15 play, 80 yard drive that spanned 8:30 to take a 7-0 lead.

But it didn't take Green Bay long to respond. The Packers needed just 6 plays to find the end zone. The drive was capped off with a one-yard Eddie Lacy touchdown run.

The teams traded scores the rest of the way, with the Packers once holding inside their own five yard line to limit the Bears to a 23-yard field goal.

Green Bay also held the Bears out of the end zone as time expired in the first half. Martellus Bennett caught a pass but was tackled just shy of the goal line by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The play was reviewed, and the call on the field was upheld.
