CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears clinched the NFC North and helped knock Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers out of playoff contention.They could not have asked for a sweeter scenario.Mitchell Trubisky threw for two touchdowns Dion Sims Jersey , Eddie Jackson ended Rodgers’ NFL-record streak without an interception and Chicago clinched the division with a 24-17 victory over the Packers on Sunday.Article continues below ...The Bears (10-4) secured their first playoff appearance since the 2010 team won the NFC North. And even better for them, they did it with a rare victory over their heated rivals.“We’ve accomplished a lot,” Trubisky said. “But I think I’m most proud of just the type of guy that we have in our locker room, the culture that we’ve kind of created. We know that nobody really believed in us on the outside in the preseason — or even throughout the season. But we knew what type of team we had. And we knew we were just gonna keep getting better every single week.”The loss coupled with Minnesota’s 41-17 victory over Miami keeps the Packers out of the postseason for the second year in a row.Chicago had dropped nine of 10 against Green Bay (5-8-1). But the Bears secured their first trip to the playoffs in eight years with their seventh win in eight games .For a team that came into the season with four straight last-place finishes, it’s quite a turnaround. But with the hiring of coach Matt Nagy and trade for Khalil Mack in a busy offseason, the Bears made a huge jump.“You could feel it all year long that we knew we had the talent,” Nagy said.The Bears blew a 20-point lead in a season-opening loss at Green Bay, with an injured Rodgers rallying the Packers. But they’ve been climbing since.Trubisky gave the Bears a 21-14 lead early in the fourth quarter with a 13-yard pass to Trey Burton in the left side of the end zone.After stopping the Packers, Tarik Cohen returned a punt 44 yards to the 15. But he stepped out of bounds a yard short on a third-and-5 at the 10 when he easily could have gotten the first down.That forced the Bears to settle for a field goal by Cody Parkey, making it 24-14 with 6:43 remaining.The Packers then drove to the 9, but on third down Tarik Cohen Color Rush Jersey , Jackson picked off Rodgers, ending his streak at 402 passes.The throw over the middle was intended for Jimmy Graham near the goal line. But the ball got tipped to Jackson, who had to be helped off the field with a sprained right ankle after his leg bent awkwardly as he tried to slide on the return. The interception was his sixth of the season.Mason Crosby kicked a field goal in the closing seconds to make it a seven-point game. But Chicago recovered the onside kick.The Packers are 1-1 since offensive coordinator Joe Philbin replaced fired coach Mike McCarthy on an interim basis.“The expectation is competing for championships,” Rodgers said. “It’s a good football team. But like I told some of the guys, I look forward to the battles over the years. I like our chances in this division moving forward.”WORST TO FIRSTThe Bears, who finished in fourth place in the NFC North last season, completed a turnaround that make for 15 of the past 16 seasons with at least one NFL team finishing in first place in its division the season after finishing in last or tied for last place.And Nagy became the Bears’ first rookie coach with 10 wins since George Halas in 1920, the inaugural season for a franchise then known as the Decatur Staleys.LEADING BEARSMack had 2½ sacks and Leonard Floyd added two. The defense came through with another strong effort after the Monsters of the Midway shut down Jared Goff and the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams the previous week.Trubisky was 20 of 28 for 235 yards with a 120.4 rating. It was a big improvement over the previous week when he matched a career high with three interceptions after missing back-to-back games because of a right shoulder injury.Cohen caught a touchdown pass. Jordan Howard ran for a TD, and the Bears improved to 7-1 at home for the first time since 2005.“Guys grinded, gritted it out, especially toward the end ,” Mack said. “We just want to keep this feeling going.”RODGERS CONTAINEDRodgers said his groin tightened on him at the end of the first half. He finished 25 of 42 for 274 yards with his second interception of the season and failed to throw a touchdown for the first time this year.Davante Adams had eight receptions for 119 yards.The Packers fell to 0-7 on the road with their ninth straight loss away from home, and their eight-game win streak at Soldier Field, counting the postseason, came to an end.“Nobody anticipated this happening,” Clay Matthews said. “In reality, we’re not getting blown out every week. I’m trying to find a silver lining, that’s all you can do at this point of the season.”INJURIEStongue sticking out smileyackers: RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) missed his second game in a row, while DL Kenny Clark sat out with an elbow injury. … RB Aaron Jones left the game with a knee injury in the first quarter. … WR Randall Cobb was evaluated for a concussion following a hard hit by Jackson late in the game.Bears: LB Aaron Lynch left with an elbow injury in the third quarter.UP NEXTPackers: Visit New York Jets on Dec. 23.Bears: Visit San Francisco on Dec. 23. Just when the Sackwatch was trending into some rarefied territory, the Chicago Bears give up four sacks to the Detroit Lions. Not having Mitchel Trubisky definitely hurt the sack numbers, but I’m not about to blame all four on backup quarterback Chase Daniel. Watching live, there were a few times when I noticed that Trubisky’s mobility would have helped Aaron Lynch Jersey , but we need to understand that Trubisky is one of the most athletic quarterbacks playing today. I had no idea he’d be that kind of player coming out of North Carolina, but that’s who he is. I was pleasantly surprised with how efficiently Daniel ran the offense. This was only his third career start. but he played like a poised veteran, which is exactly why the Bears made him one of the highest paid backup QBs in the league. Let’s check the numbers...Sackwatch after 11 games2010 - 41 Martz2011 - 27 Martz2012 - 35 Tice2013 - 17 Trestman2014 - 27 Trestman2015 - 19 Gase2016 - 22 Loggains2017 - 27 Loggains2018 - 23 NagyAnd let’s break down the sacks allowed...Sack 20 - First Quarter 5:55 - Romeo Okwara and Damon HarrisonWhen a quarterback sets up, then has time to shuffle his feet a bit while drifting forward before taking off, that’s usually a good indication that the defense had everyone covered. The Bears had five guys running routes, and the Lions gave Daniel no where to go with the ball. The pass protection holds up long enough against the four Lion defeners, but when Chase Daniel decides to run, he’s contacted by left guard James Daniels who was looking for work. The good coverage brings me to a Sacks Happen conclusion on this play.Sack 21 - Third Quarter 10:28 - Ezekiel AnsahHere’s another play where Daniel was caught after trying to run. This officially went down as a sack for zero yards, so I don’t understand why this can’t go in the books as a run for zero yards. I can’t really fault left tackle Charles Leno Jr. on this play, even though he was the man blocking Ansah. Leno pushes his man past the pocket, but Ansah just keeps working the circle until he’s free. Daniel tried to escape to his right Kevin White Color Rush Jersey , but that hole closed up on him, so he changed direction to go left and was caught. Check out linebacker Jarrad Davis (#40) hiding behind his nose tackle presnap. It looks like he was spying Daniel, which was probably a wrinkle put in to counter Trubisky. The Lions only rushed three, with the spy coming late, and they made a good play on the sack. I’ll give this one a Sacks Happen too, just because Daniel was close to getting a yard on his scramble.I do think Trubisky avoids both of the first sacks allowed. Sack 22 - Third Quarter 5:58 - Damon Harrison“Snacks’ Harrison isn’t known for his pass rushing, but he had a sack and a half on this day. This was another zero yard sack, but I’m going to give this one to the QB. Daniel pulls the ball off the run/pass option, and he sets up to throw the bubble screen to his left, only he doesn’t pull the trigger. The only reason I have for him not throwing is he was reading the wrong wide out. The motion man, Anthony Miller , was the one bubbling out to accept the throw, but Daniel could have been looking at his tight end Trey Burton. If he would have hit Miller in stride, Miller would have had two blockers in front against two Lion defenders. The misread led Daniel to taking off and he ran into the sack.Sack 23 - Fourth Quarter 7:00 - Glover QuinThis one hurts, because Daniel was hit just as he was about to uncork a deep pass to a wide open Anthony Miller. Check him out to Daniel’s left...This was another play where the Bears’ pass protection held up nicely, but the Lions just made a good play. They sent two blitzers around Chicago’s right side and the second one got home. Right tackle Bobby Massie took the defensive end to his outside shoulder and running back Jordan Howard picked up the first blitzer. The second blitzer, safety Glover Quin, came behind the first and it was timed so the Bears couldn’t slide protection to help. The Lions blitzed on Chicago’s left side too, and Leno passed his man off to the inside while getting the blitzer. Chicago did everything right, but sometimes sacks happen.
