David Banks/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — The Green Bay Packers walked into Soldier Field prepared for battle and walked out NFC North champions.

The Packers won the division for the second-straight year by defeating the Chicago Bears 21-13 on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, all to James Jones to help Green Bay improve to 10-4 this year.

Clay Matthews led the way for the Green Bay defense with two sacks of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.  They held the Bears to 190 total yards, their third-lowest total of the season.

Brandon Marshall, who was really set on beating the Bears scored a touchdown in the first quarter to put the Bears up 7-0.  The Packers then came right back and had a touchdown, interception, and another touchdown in a three-minute span.

After beginning the season 7-1, the Bears (8-6) have won just one of their past six games and are now in the middle of a crowded Wild-Card race in the NFC.
