Aaron Rodgers has been a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type player for Fantasy owners this year, two dud performances and a normal stud performance. Today, he reverted back to his normal quality performace, mailing four TDs to his wide receivers (two each to Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson) as the Packers defeated the Bears 38-17, despite the Bears gaining 148 more yards on the day. Rodgers was efficient with his passes, which compensated for a poor yardage day from Eddie Lacy (only 48 yards on 17 carries).

Meanwhile, the Bears passing offense was no slouch either. Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall each caught a TD, but failed to gain many yards. It was Martellus Bennett who caught 134 yards to lead the team in receiving.
The Bears are now 0-2 at home and head to Carolina to face the Panthers next week. If they can keep up their offense and avoid costly turnovers (Cutler was intercepted twice, both returned over 40 yards, and the team fumbled 3 times but did not lose possession), they have a good chance at having some better luck in the win department. Carolina will be coming off a drubbing of their own, losing 38-10 to Steve Smith (2TDs) and the Ravens, so both teams will be eager to get a losing taste out of their mouths.
