The Packers (1-1) intercepted four Cutler passes, including two by Tramon Williams. Facing a fierce pass rush all night, Cutler was sacked seven times, including 3.5 for Clay Matthews. Brandon Marshall was held to two catches for 24 yards for the Bears (1-1).

The Bears also lost running back Matt Forte to an ankle injury.

After Williams collected his second interception, Aaron Rodgers finally found the end zone in the fourth quarter, hitting Donald Driver for a 26-yard touchdown pass and a 23-3 lead.
