(AP) GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Green Bay Packers rattled and robbed Jay Cutler and backup tight end Tom Crabtree scored on a fake field goal in the second quarter of a 23-10 victory over the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.
The Packers (1-1) intercepted four Cutler passes, including a pair by Tramon Williams. Facing a fierce pass rush all night, Cutler was sacked seven times, including 3? for Clay Matthews. New wide receiver Brandon Marshall was held to two catches for 24 yards for the Bears (1-1).
The Bears also lost running back Matt Forte to an ankle injury.
After Williams collected his second interception, Aaron Rodgers finally found the end zone in the fourth quarter, hitting Donald Driver for a 26-yard touchdown pass and a 23-3 lead.
