Green Bay Thumps ChicagoSubmitted: 11/10/2014
GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers thump the Chicago Bears 55-14 at Lambeau Field.

The Packers put up 451 yards of offense against the Bears.

Aaron Rodgers had six touchdowns.


"We got things going early, we hit a fourth down, we hit a roll out. Hit a couple busts in coverages as well," Rodgers said. "The line did a good job of allowing me to extend plays . As we extend plays and look down the field, Jordy made a couple nice catches."

The Packers defense picked Jay Cutler off twice.

With the Green Bay offense scoring so easily, the defense did its part.

"So much emphasis was put on it this week and last week going home with that loose against the Saints over the bye week," said Packers Linebacker Clay Matthews. "We knew we were going to have to stop the run. When we got that lead on them with how well our offense was playing, it was over at that point. We got to turn ourselves loose, get some interceptions, the normal story."

The Packers face the Philadelphia Eagles next.

The Packers 42-0 lead at halftime marked the 2nd highest margin ever in the NFL at half.

Just ask the Bears head coach Mark Trestman how he thinks his football team is performing.
