Packers take advantage again

CHICAGO -- Another fortunate call in the red zone has given Green Bay a 14-3 lead here at Soldier Field.

One play after Bears safety Mike Brown limped off the field, the Packers capitalized with a 17-yard screen pass to tailback Ryan Grant. Brown's replacement, rookie safety Craig Steltz, had a clear shot to tackle Grant well short of the goal line. But Grant lowered his should and bowled over Steltz and into the end zone.

The Bears have two timeouts left and 1:04 left, so it will be interesting to see if the Bears even try to make an offensive surge before halftime.
