Just a bit outside

Timing

In his first game back after missing two months with a broken collar bone, QB Aaron Rodgers was rusty. 

WR Randall Cobb, out since Oct. 13, was probable.

When the fourth quarter rolled through, the Bears looked headed into the playoffs for a showdown against the San Francisco 49ers.

By the end of Sunday night, Rodgers completed two fourth downs, including a game-winning 48-yard TD pass to Cobb, stunning sold out Soldier Field into rapt silence. 

Given up for dead while going 2-5-1 in Rodgers absence, the Packers held on long enough with Seneca Wallace, Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn to escape Week 17 with the NFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. 

The Packers clinched a spot at Chicago’s expense for the second year in a row.
