Down but not out, the Bears continued to hang around in the third quarter, keeping the Packers off the scoreboard and keeping the score at 14-0.

Unfortunately for the Bears, while their defense, led by Brian Urlacher, who thwarted a Packer drive with a huge red-zone interception, has kept them in the game, their offense continued to shoot blanks with first Todd Collins and then Caleb Hanie under center in place of Jay Cutler, who injured his knee and is not expected to returned.

Green Bay’s offense got a little sloppy in the third quarter. In addition to Rodgers’ second interception, penalties by offensive linemen also stopped drives cold.

Urlacher has come up huge for Chicago, making a big tackle for a huge loss in addition to his interception. But Collins was terrible in place of Cutler, almost throwing a pair of interceptions on his two possessions before being replaced by the more mobile Hanie.
