The fierce rivalry between the two oldest teams in the NFL produced some spectacular ball games Sunday night, as the Bears headed to Green Bay to face the Packers.
The two teams combined for an explosive 45 points in a second quarter slugfest. The Bears scored touchdowns at 46 and 54 yards plus a return hit from Jakeem Grant at 97 yards. Grant’s comeback is the longest in franchise history.
The Packers contributed three more touchdowns, including a 55-yard pick six courtesy of full-back Rasul Douglas, who picked up Bears defender Justin Fields.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, usually the cool one in a heated battle, completed his 4th transformation into Allen Lazard for the first points of the game. Rodgers also beat Davante Adams for a stylish touch from 38 yards.
Bears player Cairo Santos ended the first half with a goal 44 yards out at time.
The 45-point quarter is the most points scored in any quarter of a historic run against the Bears-Packers. The previous record was 42 points, all scored in the fourth half of the 1955 match.
