CHICAGO -- Green Bay just let Chicago back into this game. More specifically, Jarrett Bush did.

The Bears opened the second half with another three-and-out, but Bush allowed Brad Maynard's punt to bounce off his leg while he was trying to block Rashied Davis. Jason Davis recovered the ball at the Packers' 27-yard line, and five plays later Kyle Orton threw a three-yard touchdown pass to tight end Greg Olsen.

That turn of events cut the Packers' lead to 14-10 less than five minutes into the second half.

It's been a tough day for Bush, who has indirectly been involved in both Bears scores. Bears kick returner Danieal Manning dragged him about 25 yards during a 70-yard kickoff return in the first quarter.
