Packers Clinch NFC North with 21-13 Win Over Bears

It didn’t look pretty at times in 2012, but the bottom line is the Packers are heading to the postseason as the NFC North Champions.

Sunday in the Windy City, the team beat Chicago 21-13, with their offense shining with Aaron Rodgers leading the way in the 8-point win.

James Jones caught three touchdown passes from Aaron Rodgers and the Packers wrapped up the NFC North with a 21-13 win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.

Rodgers finished the game 23-for-36 for 291 yards for the Packers (10-4), who have won three straight and eight of their last nine to roll to their second straight division crown.

“It’s all about how you’re playing in late December and your team’s health,” said Rodgers on his Twitter account. “We’ve dealt with a lot of adversity. We want to peak at the right time.”

Kicker Mason Crosby continued to struggle for Green Bay, missing both of his field goal attempts as he is now just 9-for-18 in his past seven games. Randall Cobb had six catches for 115 yards in the game.

Jay Cutler passed for just 135 yards on 12-of-21 attempts with a touchdown and an interception for the Bears (8-6), who have lost three straight games and five of six to see their division title hopes end and have their postseason chances placed in jeopardy.
