Aaron Rodgers was spot on. He let the Chicago Bears fans know it as he told them he still owns them following his rushing touchdown to seal the win for the Green Bay Packers.

With victory today, the Packers now move to 21-5 against the Bears in games Rodgers has started. Dominance.

Not for the first time in this rivalry, the Bears got off to the best start, going down the field to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. However, Chicago’s offense couldn’t keep pace with Rodgers and Green Bay over the course of the game.

The Bears entered Week 6 with the NFL’s third-worst scoring offense, and the Packers’ defense ensured that didn’t get much better. Joe Barry’s unit held the Bears to just 14 points, and that’s rarely enough to beat the Packers.

Aaron Rodgers was on the money, going 17/23 for 195 yards and two touchdowns, while running in a third.

As ever, Davante Adams was his top target, catching four passes for 89 yards. Allen Lazard also came up with some important plays, catching three passes for 27 yards and a score.

When this offense is at its best, they can run the football. The Packers had 31 rushing attempts to just 23 passes on Sunday. Aaron Jones had 13 carries for 76 yards, AJ Dillon 11 carries for 59 yards, while Rodgers surprisingly rushed seven times, one for a score.

The defense kept the Bears away from the red zone often but did give up touchdowns on both of Chicago’s trips. Of course they did.

Darnell Savage had an interception. Adrian Amos was inches away from having another.

The win is a huge one for the Packers as it takes them two games clear of both the Bears and Minnesota Vikings, while also giving them a road divisional victory.

Green Bay has played four of its opening six games on the road. The team is 5-1. That’s a great start.
