Packers blow out Bears behind Rodgers' six touchdowns

The Green Bay Packers humiliated the Chicago Bears during a 55-14 rout Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes.

The Bears are officially in crisis.

As for Rodgers, he completed 18 of 27 passes for 315 yards, including touchdown passes of 73 and 40 yards.

The Packers led 42-0 at halftime.

"We just kind of got things going our way," Rodgers said. "The line did a good job of giving me time to extend plays. If you extend plays, you look down the field and there's Jordy Nelson. He made some nice catches."

Rodgers tied the team touchdown pass record that he shared with Matt Flynn and matched the NFL mark for a half set by the Oakland Raiders' Daryle Lamonica in 1969.

Two weeks after a 51-23 loss to New England, the Bears set afranchise record by giving up 42 points in a half.

"I'm confused, brother," wide receiver Brandon Marshal said. "We're just not very good right now," receiver Brandon Marshall said. "It's a shame to have to say that, but sitting at 3-6, it's tough. It's very, very, very disappointing."
