Green Bay Sweeps Bears with 21-14 Win
CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryan Grant ran for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears 21-14 Sunday after letting their lead slip away.

Grant broke off a season-long 62-yard touchdown on the Packers' first play from scrimmage and scored the go-ahead TD in the fourth quarter after Nick Collins intercepted Jay Cutler.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 180 yards, Jermichael Finley caught five passes for 70, and Charles Woodson added his 44th career interception for the Packers (9-4), who have won five straight.

The Bears (5-8) lost for the seventh time in nine games and were eliminated from the playoff picture, according to STATS LLC. That makes it three straight postseason misses since the 2006 team's Super Bowl run.
