Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown tosses to four different pass catchers and the Green Bay Packers played a turnover-free game to beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football in Green Bay, Wis.

Rodgers completed 21 of 29 passes for 211 yards in the 41-25 victory at Lambeau Field. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky completed 26 of 46 passes for 242 yards and three scores, but threw two interceptions and lost a fumble.

Packers linebacker Preston Smith had a sack and a fumble recovery. Fellow Packers linebacker Za'Darius Smith also had a sack and forced fumble. Safety Darnell Savage had two interceptions in the victory.

"I thought it was a really good game plan executed to near perfection in the first half, which is what we needed to get off to a fast start," Rodgers told reporters.

The Packers pushed their lead to 20-3 when Rodgers threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Allen Lazard 4:40 before halftime.

Each team punted on their first drives of the second half. Rodgers then threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Robert Tonyan to give the Packers a 24-point advantage. Packers running back Jamaal Williams later added a 13-yard rushing touchdown with 1:18 remaining in the third quarter.

The Bears responded with a 13-play, 70-yard scoring drive. Trubisky connected with Robinson on a 6-yard touchdown pass to end that possession with a score about three minutes into the fourth quarter.

Trubisky threw another fourth-quarter touchdown pass when he found David Montgomery on a three-yard connection with 3:26 remaining. The Trubisky to Montgomery score provided the final points of the night.

"I just felt like they got after us the entire game from the first quarter until the very end," Bears coach Matt Nagy said.

Montgomery had 143 yards from scrimmage and a score on 16 touches in the loss. Robinson had eight catches for 74 yards and two scores.

"Even when you have a great performance, there are always areas to improve," Packers coach Matt LaFleur said. "Our guys know the expectations are extremely high here. I wouldn't want it any other way."

The Packers (8-3) will host the Philadelphia Eagles at 4:25 p.m. EST Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Bears (5-6) will host the Detroit Lions at 1 p.m. EST Sunday at Soldier Field in Chicago.
