The Green Bay Packers scored a touchdown from a fake field goal and made a series of sacks and interceptions to beat the Chicago Bears 23-10 in the NFL on Monday.
On a night when defenses dominated at Lambeau Field, the Packers got creative, and it worked.
With the Packers facing fourth-and-26 on the Chicago 27-yard line late in the second quarter, Tim Masthay, the punter who also functions as the holder on field goals, and kicker Mason Crosby appeared to line up for a field goal attempt.
But Masthay took the snap and flipped the ball to tight end Tom Crabtree, who ran through a huge hole and streaked all the way to the end zone.
"That's a gutsy call," Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "It worked out."
While that was the eye-catching play, the Packers victory was underpinned by the defense, which rattled and robbed Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler all night.
Cutler threw four interceptions, including a pair to Tramon Williams. A fierce Packers pass rush sacked Cutler seven times, with Clay Matthews credited with 3 1-2 of them.
"Clay was incredible," Rodgers said. "Defense causing turnovers, if they play like this we're going to be hard to beat."
Cutler was 11 for 27 for 126 yards. Earlier in the week, he had wished the Packers' defensive backs "good luck" in trying to match up with a new-look wide receiver corps led by Brandon Marshall. Stalked by Williams for much of the night, Marshall didn't see much of the ball, taking two receptions for 34 yards. And he couldn't convert his one big opportunity, dropping a potential touchdown in the third quarter.
Chicago also lost running back Matt Forte to an ankle injury. Forte provided much of what little offense the Bears could muster before leaving the game in the third.
Rodgers finished the game 22 of 32 for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He got sacked five times. Green Bay got a scare when the NFL MVP appeared to hurt his right arm early in the game, but he stayed in.
Crosby hit three field goals for Green Bay, including a 54-yarder in the fourth quarter.
