Just moments after I had written the Chicago Bears off, they finally get on the board with an eight-play, 67-yard drive capped off by a Chester Taylor one-yard touchdown run to cut the Green Bay packers lead to seven, 14-7. The touchdown was setup by a terrific throw by Caleb Hanie – subbing for an injured Jay Cutler and ineffective Todd Collins – to Johnny Knox for 32 yards down to the one-yard line.
The Packers have dominated every statistical category all game but by only putting 14 points on the board, they kept the door open for the Bears and Chicago has finally snuck through to make this an interesting all of a sudden.
The unlikely hero, Hanie, is 2-for-2 for 40 yards passing and has rushed for three yards on the ground.
