GREEN BAY – The Packers came out of the locker room at halftime Sunday and took their swings.

There was probably some frustration being worked out along the way in what turned into a 21-13 victory.

Green Bay had just seen three straight possessions reach Chicago territory to end the first half, but no points were scored, so the lead was just 7-3. After intermission, the Packers finally cashed in.

The five-play, 73-yard touchdown drive to open the third quarter and put the Packers up two scores is the Chevy Drive of the Week. It included three big plays – a 34-yard completion to WR Davante Adams on a slant route, a 17-yard scramble up the middle by QB Aaron Rodgers, and a 21-yard TD run by RB Aaron Jones.

Seventy-two of the 73 yards were covered in those three snaps, and the Packers went up 14-3. Jones was on his way to a two-touchdown day, and Adams was working toward a 100-yard receiving performance. Both plays on that drive were their biggest of the game.

The Packers then went 66 yards in five plays on their next drive to stretch the lead to 21-3, and they hung on from there.
