# Rave: [ul]Ryan Grant rushed for 41 yards on his first two carries, which more than doubled the rushing total of the Tennessee Titans (20) for the entire game last week against the Bears. Grant finished the first half with 105 rushing yards on 13 carries to become the first Packers back since Samkon Gado in 2005 to surpass the century mark in the first half. The Packers finished with 200 yards on the ground.[/ul]

# Rant: [ul]Is it possible Kyle Orton is a tad overrated? Orton looked like a typical bad Bears quarterback, not the player who has been getting rave reviews in some circles this season. The Packers befuddled Orton, who completed just two passes to wide receivers.[/ul]

# Rave:[ul] Aaron Rodgers came out smoking. He completed 7 of 7 passes for 71 yards on the first two drives, including 6 of 6 on the Packers 73-yard first-quarter touchdown march. It was a sign of things to come. Rodgers completed 77 percent of his passes and had a sparkling 105.8 rating.[/ul]

# Rant:[ul] Rodgers had one bad pass and would love to have it back. He had a favorable matchup with Brian Urlacher covering Donald Driver downfield midway through the second quarter but underthrew it and was intercepted by Urlacher at the Bears 10. Its the third consecutive game Urlacher has had an interception against the Packers.[/ul]

# Rave: [ul]Mike McCarthy threw out the red challenge flag in the second quarter, and it turned out to be a wise move. Instead of the Bears getting a first down at the Packers 14, the replay showed Matt Forte stepped out of bounds at the 21. The 7-yard difference doesnt seem like much, but the Bears momentum was disrupted when they gained just 4 yards in the next three plays and settled for a field goal for their only points of the game.[/ul]

# Rant: [ul]The Packers apparently were feeling so confident on defense they had only 10 men on the field on the Bears final drive of the first half. Mike Montgomery was supposed to be out there, and the miscue cost the Packers a timeout.[/ul]

# Rave:[ul] On third-and-1 at their 19 in the second quarter, the Packers much-maligned run defense stuffed Forte for no gain and forced a punt. Its not often the defense has attracted raves this season for its prowess guarding the run, but the play set up a Packers touchdown drive and 14-3 lead.[/ul]

# Rant: [ul]Its become a weekly ritual, with at least one particularly bad call by the officials. This time it went against Colin Cole for unncecessary roughness against Bears kick returner Devin Hester at the end of the first half. Cole was standing on the sideline, minding his own business, and appeared to be bracing himself against a hard-charging Hester by putting his hands out and giving a gentle nudge. If officials felt compelled to drop a flag, it should have been against Hester for stiff-arming Tramon Williams in the face.[/ul]

# Rave: [ul]Grant rushed for 3 yards on third-and-3 in the second quarter to pick up a first down. That the Packers were confident enough to run in that situation says a lot.[/ul]

# Rant: [ul]Donald Lee caught one touchdown pass in the third quarter and should have had another in the fourth quarter. But he dropped a Rodgers pass in the end zone in tight coverage and the Packers settled for a field goal.[/ul]

# Rave: [ul]The Bears were in a particularly generous mood at the end of the half. They committed penalties for holding and a false start, then killed the clock by throwing an incompletion. A 30-yard shanked punt out of bounds by Brad Maynard gave the Packers a first down at the Bears 40 with 42 seconds remaining. The Bears bumbling resulted in a 53-yard Mason Crosby field goal and 17-3 Packers lead.[/ul]
