Mayfield finished 19 of 28 for 234 yards and two touchdowns, but had three turnovers. Donovan Peoples-Jones had four catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns.

The Packers moved to 5-1 for the season and stretched their advantage over their opponents at the top of the NFC North with a 24-12 win, with Rodgers celebrating his running score by shouting "I still own you!" at the Bears fans.
