CHICAGO – Aaron Rodgers returned from injury just in time as the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday to win the NFC North and earn a playoff berth.
Rodgers’ 48-yard touchdown pass on fourth down late in the fourth quarter to Randall Cobb, who also returned from a long injury layoff, gave the Packers a victory and the chance to host San Francisco in a Wild Card game next weekend.
Dave Sims and Mark Malone called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
