The Bears took advantage of an Eddie Lacey turnover in the second quarter and turned it into points against the Packers. Zach Miller caught another touchdown pass from Jay Cutler, his fourth on the season.

Cutler and the Bears moved slowly down the field, needing two big third down conversions to get the job done. On third down inside the five yard line, Cutler nearly lost his footing before finding a wide open Miller in the end zone.

The Bears quarterback went 4-5 on the drive, with his only incompletion coming on a shot at the end zone towards a sliding Alshon Jeffery. Miller’s touchdown evened the game at seven after an earlier score by Green Bay’s Eddie Lacey.

Unfortunately for the Bears, the tie didn’t last long. A long kickoff return by the Packers got the ball deep into Bears territory. The defense would hold in the red zone, however, and force the Packers to kick a field goal.
