Second-quarter wrap: Packers 10, Bears 7
By Jeff Dickerson
Aaron Rodgers passed for 172 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the first half.
CHICAGO -- Green Bay took a 10-0 lead on a long scoring drive early in the second quarter that resulted in a Mason Crosby 38-yard field goal.
The Packers' drive ate 7:47 off the clock and included a 28-yard reception by tight end Jermichael Finley.
After a sluggish quarter offensively, the Bears made things interesting on their final drive of the half. A 28-yard punt return by Devin Hester gave the Bears the ball on the Green Bay 37-yard line. On the ensuing play, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler hit Johnny Knox on a 31-yard reception down the far sideline. A few plays layer Cutler connected with tight end Greg Olsen on a 9-yard touchdown pass.
The Bears also made a few lineup changes in the second quarter. Rookie J'Marcus Webb replaced veteran Kevin Shaffer at right tackle for one series, while Tim Jennings took over for Zack Bowman at left cornerback. Bowman was taken out after missing an open-field tackle earlier in the half.
