Bears miss playoffs with loss to Packers

The Chicago Bears’ playoff hopes disappeared in stunning fashion Sunday as Aaron Rodgers hit a wide-open Randall Cobb on a 48-yard touchdown pass with 38 seconds remaining to give the Green Bay Packers a 33-28 victory, securing the NFC North title and a home playoff game. The Bears finished 8-8.

The Packers (8-7-1) captured the NFC North title and a playoff berth on a 4th-and-8 play to overcome the Bears’ 28-27 lead.

Rodgers returned from a fractured left collarbone suffered Nov. 4 at Lambeau Field against the Bears and engaged the Bears’ Jay Cutler in a dramatic duel.

    A fitting end. Cutler doesn't show up for the eagles game. Then Rodgers, who sits on his aSS all season, burns the bears defense once again. I guess their 3 month island vacations will begin early this year.

    Haven't the Bears vacations been starting early every year? Don't try to blame this game on Cutler though. Blame your defense.

      Are you crazy the bears had a defense for 6 years straight with no offense so don't blame the defense blame the garbage coach for starting a quarterback that sucks. If Mckown would've finished the season the bears would have made the playoffs.

    Just the worst defense Chicago has ever put on the field! They give up a touchdown on a fumble by Rogers, which should have been their 3 rd turnover in the first half. Then, then, give up a TD on 4th and 8 from the 48 with 46 seconds left. Their D-coordinator should be shot and so should Peppers for crashing down inside and getting cut by the FB on 4th down. Out side leverage on 4 th down you schmuck!!!! Keep that b%%%% in the pocket!!!!!

    Remember when Rodgers threw an incomplete pass but they ruled it a fumble but nobody picked it up right away and then a Packer did and just waltzed into the end zone and the Packers won by 5 pts?

    Bears D looked worse than the O but Cutler went out in true cry-baby fashion. Should see a lot of changes on both sides of the ball next year. At least Marshall had a tux on after the game.
