Packers Beat Bears For Fifth Straight Win; Deal With More Injuries

By Adam Roberts – 10/18/2021

In case you didn’t know, it would appear that the majority owner of the Chicago Bears franchise is not, in fact, Virginia Halas McCaskey.

In actuality, it appears to be Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers quarterback scored a six-yard rushing touchdown late in the fourth quarter to seal a 24-14 Packers, and then let the lower bowl know just who is the Bears’ owner. Afterwards, Rodgers would attribute the outburst to “blacking out” and the plethora of middle fingers pointed in his direction. If you seek evidence of Rodgers’s “ownage” of Chicago, he is now 22-5 against the Bears including the postseason.

Rodgers also passed for 195 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay’s fifth straight win. Aaron Jones had 110 total yards and a receiving touchdown. On defense, the Packers registered four sacks and an interception against Justin Fields.

In more unfortunate news, the injury bug continues to be a nagging problem for Green Bay, with three more big names leaving the game and not returning yesterday. Safety Darnell Savage, who made the interception of Fields, suffered a concussion at the start of the third quarter, center Josh Myers was dealt a knee injury in his first game back, and linebacker Preston Smith was sent off the field with an oblique injury. Of the three, it appears Myers got the luckiest; head coach Matt LaFleur said after the game the medical staff don’t think the injury is season-ending.

The Packers are in first place in the NFC North with a 5-and-1 record. Green Bay will host Washington on Sunday.
