Through 30 minutes at Lambeau Field, it’s all Green Bay Packers. The green and gold hold a commanding 27-10 lead over the Chicago Bears at halftime, as both the offense and defense have gotten into the end zone.
The offense has three drives in the first half and has scored three touchdowns, all thanks to the right arm of Aaron Rodgers. Drives of 14, 9, and 13 plays resulted in scores, with Rodgers slinging touchdowns to Davante Adams, Marcedes Lewis, and Allen Lazard. He has as many incompletions as touchdowns, going 15-of-18 for 128 yards in the first half.
The defense got into the equation as well, taking advantage of old friend Mitchell Trubisky, who is making his first start for Chicago since week three. Trubisky has turned the football over twice, first on a deep interception to Darnell Savage in the end zone and later on a fumble forced by Za’Darius Smith. The other Smith Brother, Preston, scooped up that fumble and rumbled 14 yards for a touchdown to extend the Packers’ lead to 27-3 late in the second quarter.
Chicago found the end zone late in the first half, as Trubisky hit Allen Robinson for a one-yard touchdown to pull the Bears back to within 17 points.
