(WSCR) Aaron Rodgers threw for six touchdown passes Sunday night and the Packers put up 42 points as they rolled over the Texans in Houston, silencing – at least temporarily – some questions on if this team can compete in the NFC North.
Even though the Bears (4-1) are in sole possession of first place, they can’t forget about the Packers (3-3).
“That’s a really good reminder that (the Packers) are not going to run away and hide this season,” Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune and National Football Post told The Mully and Hanley Show. “They’re still around and they’re still a real threat.”

Biggs did admit, however, that the Bears have put themselves in a nice position to have a little breathing room atop the division.
“But the Bears, by virtue of their start and with what they’ve done, have positioned themselves to control their own destiny,” Biggs said. “It’s still obviously early to talk in terms like that, I think, but if they just take care of business, they’re going to be well-positioned come later in the season. You have to like the stretch they’re entering before they have that Houston game coming up in mid-November when the Texans come here for a Sunday night game.”
