Green Bay, WI -- Aaron Rogers threw for 219 yards and a score, punter Tim Masthay added a 27-yard touchdown pass and the Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears, 23-10, on Thursday in an NFC North showdown at Lambeau Field.
Rogers completed 23-of-32 passes with an interception and a 26-yard, fourth- quarter touchdown pass to Donald Driver as the Packers (1-1) bounced back from a 30-22 season-opening home loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Cedric Benson rushed for 81 yards on 20 carries in the win and Masthay hit Tom Crabtree with a shovel pass to successfully convert a fake field goal attempt in the second quarter.
The Bears scored 41 points in a season-opening win over the Colts, but were largely held in check on Thursday.
Jay Cutler completed just 11-of-27 passes for 126 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions and was sacked seven times -- 3 1/2 by Clay Matthews.
Offseason acquisition Brandon Marshall, who had 119 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions in Week 1, didn't make a catch until the fourth quarter and finished with two grabs for 24 yards.
Matt Forte had 31 yards on seven carries for the Bears (1-1) before departing in the third quarter with an apparent ankle injury.
