GREEN BAY, Wis. — Josh McCown won the battle of the backups after Aaron Rodgers was hurt, getting lots of help from Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte to give the Chicago Bears a 27-20 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night.

The victory snapped Green Bay’s six-game winning streak over its NFC North rival. But of far larger concern is the health of Rodgers, who hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder when he was sacked on the game’s first series by Shea McClellin. Rodgers took a few warm-up throws but, after being examined by medical staff, he ran into the Green Bay locker room. He wasn’t seen again until midway through the third quarter.

With Rodgers out, the Bears (5-3) took advantage of the Packers (5-3). Marshall had seven catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, and Forte ran for 125 yards and another score.
