It didn’t take long for Aaron Rodgers to return to MVP form. Just a week removed from one of the least productive games of his career, Rodgers torched the Bears defense for 302 yards and four touchdowns. While the Packers defense remains suspect, it was able to force two key Bears turnovers in the game which helped change the complexion of the game and took away any chance of victory for Chicago. As long as the Packers stay relatively healthy, this team should and likely will compete for an NFC Championship at the end of the season. The Packers will now head back to Green Bay to take on the division rival Vikings, who may be without rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on Thursday night.
