GREEN BAY – There's nothing better than a fourth-quarter drive that drains clock and adds to a lead.
The Packers executed a textbook one late in Sunday night's 45-30 victory over the Bears, so it's as good a choice as any for the Chevy Drive of the Week.
Leading 35-27, Green Bay took over on its own 29-yard line with 13:11 left in the game. The Packers had just caught a break when a Bears penalty nullified a muffed punt for a turnover, and they took advantage of the good fortune, driving 71 yards in 13 plays while killing 8:38 off the clock.
RB AJ Dillon handled a fair share of the workload, carrying six times for 27 yards on the possession, after backfield mate Aaron Jones started the drive with a 5-yard carry.
Sprinkled throughout were several short passes – three to WR Davante Adams for 18 total yards, one to WR Allen Lazard for 11 yards and another to TE Marcedes Lewis for 7 yards.
Two of Adams' grabs converted third downs, while Lewis' catch was his season-best fourth of the game (for 51 yards), making it first-and-goal from the 3.
From there, Adams caught his fourth pass on the drive, a short slant for the TD to make it 45-27 with 4:33 to go. It was Adams' 10th catch and second score on the night as he finished with 121 yards, his third straight 100-yard game.
