Research Notes

  • The Packers' win probability rose from 40.7% to 99.5% after Aaron Rodgers' 48-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb on 4th-and-8. It was the biggest play in terms of win probability added in Rodgers' career and one of the biggest plays of the year. The Packers converted three times on 4th down on their final drive, becoming the 2nd team to convert three 4th-down plays on a drive this season (the Saints did so in Week 15 vs Rams in the 4th quarter).

  • Jay Cutler's performance Sunday was efficient and effective, and he helped guide the Bears into a position to beat the Packers.- For the first time in his Bears career against the Packers, Cutler threw more touchdowns than interceptions (2-1).- Cutler threw only one incomplete pass due to an under- or overthrown pass Sunday, tied for his fewest in a game with the Bears (min. 15 attempts).- Cutler completed multiple passes more than 30 yards downfield for the fourth time in his Bears career.

  • The Bears were beaten by Rodgers and Cobb on pass that traveled 38 yards past the line of scrimmage. It was Rodgers' first attempt 30 yards or more on the game.This season, the Bears have allowed 8-of-15 passes (53.3 percent) thrown 30-plus yards to be completed. The league average on those passes is 29.6 percent.

  • Both of Rodgers' touchdown passes to Cobb Sunday were thrown from outside of the pocket. Since the start of 2011, Cobb's first season with the team, Rodgers has thrown a team-high five touchdowns to Cobb outside the pocket, and has targeted him more than any other wide receiver.- Rodgers was only 2-of-2 targeting Cobb Sunday, but the duo have connected on 77.1 percent of their passes since 2011, best of any QB-WR duo with 150 attempts.

  • The Bears sent five or more pass rushers on 40 percent of Aaron Rodgers' dropbacks Sunday. The strategy worked early on as Rodgers threw both his interceptions against such pressure. However, on 4th-and-8 the Bears brought seven and Rodgers was able to escape and find Randall Cobb deep.- Rodgers was put under duress on the touchdown pass to Cobb. Rodgers was 0-of-4 with an interception when pressured prior to the play.
