In Week 8 against the New England Patriots, the Bears were unable to generate any kind of pass rush. The result was a 51-23 thrashing, as Tom Brady was given more than enough time to dissect Chicago’s secondary.
Fast forward to Week 10 against the Packers, the Bears once again failed to put any pressure on the opposing quarterback. And what the result this time? If your answer was Rodgers having a historic performance, you would be correct.
Rodgers completed 18 of 27 passes for 315 yards to go along with six touchdowns. Yes, that is what I said, six touchdowns. To put this stat into its proper perspective, he threw all of his touchdowns in the first half and watched most of the second half from the bench.
Jordy Nelson, who seems to always play well against the Bears, caught six passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns while Randall Cobb contributed with four receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.
Once again, Aaron Rodgers showed what an MVP quarterback looks while Jay Cutler showed that he is not in the class with the elite quarterbacks like Brady, Peyton Manning and Rodgers. And sadly to say, that may be the case for the rest of his career.
