CHICAGO, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Aaron Rodgers found Randall Cobb on a go-ahead, 48-yard score in the fourth quarter Sunday and Green Bay made the playoffs with a 33-28 win over Chicago.

Rodgers, playing in his first game since breaking his collarbone Nov. 4, was facing a fourth-and-8 situation with 38 seconds left when he eluded Chicago's Julius Peppers and spotted a wide-open Cobb for the game-winning score.

Rodgers finished 25-for-39 for 318 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions as the Packers (8-7-1) claimed the NFC North title with a third win in four games to finish the regular season.

Cobb, himself returning from a fractured right tibia, made two scoring grabs in all.

Jordy Nelson led the Packers' receiving corps with 10 catches for 161 yards.

Jay Cutler made good on 15-of-24 passes for 226 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for Chicago (8-8), which ended with two straight losses to miss the playoffs for a third consecutive season.

Matt Forte scored three times and piled up 157 total yards for the Bears.
