Packers 21 Bears 15
The Jay Cutler era in Chicago got off to a messy start as the newly anointed Bears QB threw four picks and the Packers prevailed 21-15 at Lambeau Field. Aaron Rodgers had an unimpressive night statistically, and the Packers' offensive game never really established rythm. Rodgers threw for just 184 yards, but he led the team on a spectacular late comeback drive in the fourth quarter. The drive was capped off by a 50 yard bomb to Greg Jennings for the winning score. The Packers new 3-4 defense bent, but it didn't break and forced Chicago into four momentum killing turnovers.
DP's MVP: You can't argue with A-Rodg, who finally led the Packers to a fourth quarter comeback over the uber rival Bears.
DP's LVP: Jay Cutler, who will surely be roasted by the Chicago news media tomorrow, receives this dubious honor, after throwing four Interception.
Runner-Up LVP : Green Bay Offensive Line (all) . They allow Rodgers to get clobbered on four vicious sacks and don't help Ryan Grant establish any momentum running the ball.
