With QB Aaron Rodgers doing little through the air, Packers RB Ryan Grant picked up the slack. Grant rushed 20 times for 137 yards and two touchdowns for his third 100-yard game in 2009. The total puts Grant over 1,000 yards (1,068) for the second straight season. He set the tone against Chicago by scoring on a 62-yard run on Green Bay's first play of the game.
