GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Ryan Grant finally hit his stride for the Green Bay Packers, rushing for 145 yards and a touchdown in a dominant 37-3 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
The win boosts the playoff hopes of the Packers (5-5), who came in on a two-game losing streak and trailing the Bears and Minnesota Vikings by one game in the NFC North standings. It also was the Packers' first victory over the Bears at Lambeau Field since Lovie Smith took over as Chicago's head coach.
Chicago (5-5) didn't look much like a division co-leader or playoff contender on either side of the ball Sunday.
Kyle Orton started at quarterback for the Bears after sitting out last Sunday's game with a sprained right ankle, but was outplayed by Aaron Rodgers.
