CHICAGO — Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were rolling along, looking as though they would take another step toward a playoff spot and the top of the NFC North.
Once their roll ended, they still found a way to win.
Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson with a 60-yard pass to set up Mason Crosby's 32-yard field goal as time expired, lifting Green Bay to a 30-27 victory over the Bears on Sunday in one of the coldest games played in Chicago.
Receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery ran for a career-high 162 yards and two touchdowns. Micah Hyde broke up a potential go-ahead touchdown pass, and the Packers won their fourth straight despite blowing a 27-10 lead in the fourth quarter.
They also moved ahead of Minnesota into second place in the NFC North and pulled within a game of division leader Detroit.
"I think we have a lot of grit as a team," Rodgers said. "We stick together in adverse situations. There wasn't any finger pointing after 27-10 turned into 27-27 for either side. We just knew we had to go out and make something happen. It's fun to be standing here at 8-6. We all know what 4-6 felt like. It was tough."
The game-time temperature was 11 degrees, with a minus-4 wind chill.
