    Green Bay 27 Chicago 11
    The Packers and the Bears squared off in this week 3 battle that was deemed a must win by Packer Owner CSteud. After dropping the first two games this season, falling into an 0-3 hole was not a welcomed thought by the owner. "Coming into the game we wanted to be a little more aggressive with the play calling as opposed to the first two weeks", said coach McCarthy. "We wanted Aaron to take a few more shots downfield as opposed to checking down so often." Coach went on to say they didn't want Rodgers to force his passes but rather give a little more time to his receivers to get open downfield. The defense was also looked upon to step up and give a little more effort. Coming into week 3 the Packers were -4 in the turnover dept. And to compete in this league that's not gonna cut it.

    Quarter 1 turned into a felling out period for both squads. Chicago started the scoring with a FG midway thru the quarter that turned out to be the only points in the opening frame. It took the Packers awhile to put points on the board themselves but with under 2 minutes to play in the half the got a bunch. After DeJuan Harris scored on an 8 yard TD run the Packers forced a Jay Cutler fumble that was picked up by A.J Hawk for a quick 8 yard score putting the Packers up 14-3. Then after another Chicago turnover the Packers added a FG to close out the first half with a 17-3 lead.

    Up 17-3 midway through the 3rd quarter G.B added another Mason Crosby FG stretching the lead to 17, 20-3. Midway into the 4th quarter the Green Bay defense would again strip Cutler of the ball. A 47 yard TD pass from Rodgers to Nelson, who made a hell of a grab at the goaline, basically put the game out of reach 27-3 Packers. Chicago's Matt Forte would add a late TD and a successful 2pt conversion pulled the Bears to 16 but in the end Green Bay held on for the 27-11 win. The Packers forced 5 turnovers while commiting only one, which was a welcomed change.

    Next up the Packers head to Detroit to take on the Lions for their third division game in a row.
