GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers allowed the Green Bay Packers to overcome the absences of their two top running backs Thursday.
Rodgers set a team record for completions in a game, hitting on 39 of 56 passes in a 26-10 comeback win over the 1-6 Chicago Bears. He finished with 326 passing yards and tossed two of his three touchdown throws to Davante Adams.
The Packers trailed 10-6 in the third quarter until Rodgers found Adams for a five-yard TD. Randall Cobb’s two-yard TD reception put the game out of reach with 5:35 to play.
Adams, Cobb and Ty Montgomery each had at least 10 receptions for the 4-2 Packers, who played without injured running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks.
The Bears lost another quarterback as Brian Hoyer broke his left arm in the second quarter. Matt Barkley replaced Hoyer and completed just six of his 15 passes for 81 yards and two interceptions.
