Packers wrap up 2nd straight NFC North title

The Chicago Bears gave the Green Bay Packers a run for their money on

Aaron Rodgers

Sunday afternoon but in the end, their woeful offensive line was no match for the Packers defense and Jay Cutler was no match for Aaron Rodgers.  The result is a 21-13 Green Bay victory and it gives the Packers their second straight NFC North Division title.

It’s the 11th divisional title in franchise history and leaves the Packers at 10-4 with 2-games left to play.  They turn their attention now on improving their position in the NFC playoff picture.  The Packers are currently 3rd, a half game behind San Francisco. 

The Packers need to win out and get San Francisco to lose once to gain the 2nd seed in the NFC and get a first round bye.
