Packers-Bears Score: Green Bay Leads Chicago, 14-0, At Halftime Of NFC Championship

The Green Bay Packers lead the Chicago Bears, 14-0, at halftime of the 2011 NFC Championship game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers started the game with four straight completions for 76 yards, but he used his legs to run the ball in from the one-yard line to the end zone for the game's first score. Running back James Starks rushed four yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Packers a 14-0 lead.

The Bears looked to have momentum on their side in the waning seconds of the first half when Lance Briggs intercepted a low pass from Aaron Rodgers; however, Jay Cutler matched Rodgers' interception with one of his own into the hands of a leaping Sam Shields. Though the play was reviewed, the referee kept the ruling on the field. Rodgers then did a kneel down to end the half.

After the interception, Cutler left the field early and Todd Collins began to warm up on the sidelines.

Cutler is 6-of-13 for 80 yards, while Rodgers is 10-of-15 for 156 yards. Green Bay's James Starks leads the ground game with 55 yards and Greg Jennings has four receptions for 78 yards. Bears running back Matt Forte has 28 rushing yards and 44 receiving yards.
