Rodgers shreds rival Bears, leads Packers to victory

CHICAGO -- Aaron Rodgers threw for 297 yards, with three touchdown tosses to Jermichael Finley, and the Green Bay Packers shut down Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears in a 27-17 victory Sunday.

The stakes weren't as high as the previous meeting, when the Packers left Soldier Field celebrating the NFC title on the way to the Super Bowl championship. Even so, they gave the Bears (1-2) more headaches.

Rodgers led the charge, completing 28 of 38 passes. He threw his first interception of the season, when Brian Urlacher picked him off with the Packers (3-0) leading 27-17 in the fourth quarter.

The Bears took over at their own 45, but two penalties -- holding by Chris Spencer and unnecessary roughness on Devin Hester for a confrontation with Sam Shields -- ended any shot they had at a comeback.
