Green Bay Packers (8-7-1) 33, Chicago Bears (8-8) 28
Sunday December 29th 2013 (at Chicago)
(CHICAGO) - Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb both returned from injuries Sunday with Green Bay's division hopes on the line and both came through. Rodgers found a wide open Cobb on 4th-and-8 for a 48-yard score with just 38 seconds left to help the Packers with the NFC North with a 33-28 victory over the Chicago Bears. Green Bay has the fourth seed in the upcoming NFC playoffs and will host the San Francisco 49ers in the wild card round of the playoffs next week. Rodgers had been out since a Nov. 4 game against these Bears due to a fractured left collarbone. He returned to practice this week and finished the game 25-for-39 for 318 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Packers. Chicago, meanwhile, dropped its final two games of the year with its playoff hopes in its own hands. The team has now missed the playoffs three straight seasons.
