PACKERS TAKE DIVISION TITLE IN WIN OVER BEARS
Wed, 19 Dec 2012 01:30 AM EST

The Packers have better things worth doing than trash talk with the Bears.

Like win the NFC North.

And a couple of other titles, perhaps.

The Green Bay delivered the ultimate comeback to the yapping Chicago Bears, a 21-13 victory that gave Packers its 2nd straight NFC North title and put a serious dent in Chicago’s playoff hopes. Aaron Rodgers connected with James Jones on all 3 touchdowns, and Clay Matthews continued his dominance of Jay Cutler with 2 more sacks as the Packers won their 6th straight against their archrivals.

”Step one is done,” Matthews announced. ”We just have to continue this thing rolling all the way to the playoffs.”

The Green Bay Packers are assured of a home playoff game and, at 10-4, are still in the shortlist for the No. Two seed in the NFC.

Not bad for a team that began the year 2-3.

”I think this team is playing the best way right now,” Rodgers related. ”We have 2 games left in the regular season. We want to be peaking at the right time because those are the teams that make the deep runs.”

The Chicago Bears, meanwhile, are going to need help to get into the playoffs after dropping 5 of their last 6 games. It is a stunning slide for a team that commenced the year 7-1.

”We’re down, but we aren’t out,” Cutler said. ”We need to remind the guys that there are 2 games left, and there’s a lot of football left. We need to get together again. We must piece this thing back together – however we do it.”

Running their mouths off obviously isn’t the best way to go.

The Packers versus Bears game is the NFL’s oldest and fiercest rivalry, and the Chicago Bears cranked up the heat when Brandon Marshall and Lance Briggs ripped their neighbors to the north earlier in the week. Marshall was particularly passionate, saying he’d never disliked a team as much as he did the Green Bay Packers and that Sunday’s game was ”personal.”

Rather than get drawn into the fray, the Packers saved their response for the field.

”We don’t try to trash talk,” Packers cornerback Sam Shields announced. ”When we get on the field we trash talk, but not in the paper. We let our actions show on the field.” Sports scores

Marshall scored Chicago’s only touchdown, but finished with 56 yards on 6 catches, his fewest totals in a month. Cutler had another dismal day against the Packers, throwing an interception that led to the game-winning touchdown. He’s been picked off 17 times by the Packers, including 10 in his last 5 games.

The Chicago Bears managed only 67 yards the entire 2nd half, and Alshon Jeffery was whistled for offensive pass interference 3 times – yes, 3 – in the last 16 minutes of the game.

”Everybody involved in this offense should be held responsible, regardless of whether that means jobs,” said Marshall, who struggled to compose himself as he spoke before cutting short his postgame interview. ”It’s been this way all year. There isn’t any excuse. We still have two games left. There’s still hope, but at the very same time, we need to be held accountable.”
