Packers clinch NFC North with win over Bears

CHICAGO -- The Green Bay Packers clinched their second consecutive NFC North title with a 21-13 victory over the archrival Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Wide receiver James Jones caught all three touchdown passes thrown by Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay has now won six in a row against the Bears in the NFL's oldest -- and fiercest -- rivalry.

The Packers (10-4) have won 12 in a row against NFC North opponents, the longest streak in the NFL.

Brandon Marshall had a 15-yard TD catch for the Bears, who have lost five of six and are in danger of missing the playoffs after beginning the year 7-1. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews continued his torture of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler with two sacks, and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery hurt the Bears (8-6) with three offensive pass interference calls late in the second half.
