Rodgers had thrown just two passes in the game, completing one to wide receiver Jordy Nelson for 27 yards.
Seneca Wallace has taken over for Rodgers and so far has not faired well – his second pass from scrimmage was intercepted by Julius Peppers.
Wallace was cut by the San Francisco 49ers this summer and subsequently picked up by the Packers. He has played for the Seattle Seahawks and the Cleveland Browns – spanning 8 total seasons — prior to his most recent stint with Green Bay.
Green Bay struck first on a 30-yard Mason Crosby field goal, but the Bears struck right back with a 23-yard pass from Josh McCown to Brandon Marshall to take a 7-3 lead with 9:55 left to play in the first quarter on Monday Night Football.
McCown is filling in for the injured Jay Cutler in what has turned into the battle of the backup quarterbacks on Monday Night Football.
