The Green Bay Packers will be the NFC’s representative in the Super Bowl after beating the Chicago Bears 21-14. The Packers took a 14-0 lead into halftime after a short touchdown run by Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter and a four-yard run by James Starks in the second quarter.
The Bears made things interesting in the fourth quarter with a one-yard toucdown run by Chester Taylor after a drive led by quarterback Caleb Hanie (Jay Cutler left the game with an injury). Chicago had the ball with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but a pick-six by B.J. Raji (complete with an embarrassing Leon Lett-esque celebration before crossing the goal line) put the Packers up by two touchdowns. The Bears added another touchdown on a 35-yard pass from Hanie to Earl Bennett, but it wasn’t enough.
