GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record with six touchdown passes in the first half as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears, 55-14 at Lambeau Field Sunday night.
Rodgers tied the mark held by Oakland’s Daryle Lamonica set in October, 1969.
Playing only one series in the second half, Rodgers was 18-27 for 315 yards and the six touchdowns.
The Packers also tied team record with 55 points in a game at Lambeau Field.
The Packers opened the scoring with 6:13 left in the first quarter when Rodgers hit tight end Brandon Bostick with a one-yard scoring pass.
Less than three minutes later, Rodgers fired a four-yard strike to Andrew Quarless to make it 14-0.
Rodgers threw four more touchdown passes in the second quarter.
Jordy Nelson caught scoring passes of 73 and 40 yards as the Packers built a 28-0 lead.
A 56-yard pass from Rodgers to Eddie Lacy made it 35-0.
Then with 14 seconds left in the second quarter, Randall Cobb made a remarkable one-handed diving catch for Rodgers’ sixth touchdown pass of the half.
The Packers defense held the Bears to only 55 rushing yards after allowing 235 to Chicago in their first meeting at Soldier Field in late September.
Casey Heyward scored a touchdown for the defense with an 82-yard interception return in the fourth quarter.
Chris Williams had a 101 yard kickoff return touchdown for the Bears.
The Packers moved their record to 6-3 while the Bears fell to 3-6.
