|Poor Debut for Cutler; Packers Tame Bears 21-15
|GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers brought the Packers back late in the fourth quarter, heaving a 50-yard touchdown pass to Greg Jennings with 1:11 remaining to give Green Bay a 21-15 victory over the Chicago Bears in the season opener Sunday night.
Facing third-and-1 at the 50-yard line, Rodgers faked play action and heaved a rainbow of a throw deep to Jennings, who ran in for the go-ahead score. Rodgers found Jennings again for a 2-point conversion.
Rodgers' big throw ruined the debut of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who threw a career-worst four interceptions.
