Aaron Rodgers linked arms with his teammates on Sunday.
Three plays later, Rodgers threw his second touchdown pass in a:53 span, a 2-yarder to Randall Cobb that gave the Packers a commanding 14-0 lead with 8:56 left in the first quarter.
All the while, a defense that had its hands full as it was couldn't hold Rodgers back without help from the offense. As he fought for yardage, Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan launched himself in for a nasty, dirty helmet-to-helmet hit. Adams made a catch for the Packers across the middle.
The injury bug still hasn't left the Packers' huddle. "They have two great running backs and it's going to be a challenge for Green Bay".
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Montgomery suffered broken ribs.
Last season, he carried the ball 77 times for 451 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season. By the end of the first half, he managed to score his first National Football League touchdown to go with his first National Football League carries. He did not return. While the Packers lost that memorable Thanksgiving night game to the Bears at Lambeau Field in 2015, Rodgers' numbers have been outstanding: 98/153 (64.1 completion percentage), 969 yards, seven touchdowns, one interception and a rating of 94.4. Jones finished with 49 yards on 13 carries and was able to finish the game. Montgomery's replacement, Jamaal Williams, later went down in the first half with a knee injury. The Packers said Adams was conscious and taken to a hospital for evaluation for possible head and neck injuries, and that he had feeling in all of his extremities. He appeared in six games as a rookie, still as a wideout before making the transition during his second season.
Following the Packers' second score, Glennon and company teased us a bit with four plays for 45 yards, driving the ball to the Packers' 29 and threatening to settle in.
Matthews' sack on the Bears' first play was the 75th of his career, vaulting him past Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila to the top of the Packers' all-time list.
