The Green Bay Packers are 5-1 after overcoming an early deficit and beating the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers created three touchdowns, including the game-sealing touchdown run in the fourth quarter, and the Packers defense kept rookie Justin Fields under pressure for much of the contest.
Based on grades from Pro Football Focus, here are the best and worst performers from the Packers’ Week 6 win over the Bears.

Jones had three catches of at least 10 yards and a 28-yard run, and he forced four missed tackles.
Rodgers was perfect on passes thrown under 20 yards in the air (16 for 16) and didn’t have a turnover-worthy play. He completed almost 74 percent of his passes and averaged 8.5 yards per attempt.
Adams caught four of his five targets, forced two missed tackles and gained 49 yards after the catch.
Dillon averaged 4.7 yards after first contact, forced three missed tackles and rushed for four first downs.
