End of 1st quarter: Packers 10 - Bears 0

Da Bearz took the opening kickoff and went 3 and out. On the first play from scrimmage for the Packers, RB Ryan Grant took a handoff from QB Aaron Rodgers and ran 62 yards for a TD. 7-0 Packers.

On the Packers next series, Rodgers tossed a beautful long throw to Greg Jennings in the back of the end zone. The refs called it incomplete as he lost the ball when tackled out of the endzone. Replays clearly showed Jennings had possession before going out of the endzone. Coach Mike McCarthy challenged the play but the refs upheld their call. Boooooooo. Blown call. Even the television announcers wanted an explanation of that one. Should have been 14-0. As it was, the Pack settled for a 34-yard field goal by Mason Crosby to go up 10-0.

On Da Bearz' next possession, Cutler's first pass was badly thrown and intercepted by Charles Woodson. The Packers were driving when the quarter ended.

The Packers dominated both sides of the ball in the quarter. But they must finish when they get into the redzone.
