The NFC North rivalry leads to raucous crowds, both at home and on the road.
No love is lost between either side and unfortunately for Bears fans, Rodgers and the Packers usually come out on top.
The two teams met up Sunday in Chicago and the game was close late until Rodgers scrambled and ran in a touchdown for a double-digit lead.

After the score he could be seen screaming toward the crowd, which was a rare display of intense emotion from the veteran.
What he said was revealed after the game and confirmed by Packers lineman David Bakhtiari.

Not only did Bears fans have to deal with the loss, but they had to accept the fact that Rodgers does indeed own them.
Rodgers is not wrong as he has only lost to the Bears five times in his illustrious NFL career.
The Latest Win
The quarterback showing this type of emotion is great for Packers fans to see.
In a year that started with rumors of him wanting out, Rodgers has the Packers at 5-1 with a two-game lead in the division.
Sunday saw him account for all three of his team’s touchdowns in the 24-14 win.
He only managed to throw for 195 yards, but his touchdown run at the end was what sealed the win.
The Bears defense could only hold him off for so long and needed much more help from Justin Fields and the offense.

"I loved it! That's the guy I know, I don't know where he's been hiding at. Aaron is 22-5 against the Bears including the playoffs." pic.twitter.com/VyrHnLWldA

Yelling at the crowd had to be a great way to let out plenty of frustration toward his entire situation this year.
Rodgers seems like a guy who needs to find extra motivation, so screaming at Bears fans is not a bad place to start.
A Telling Quote
Rodgers was asked after the game if that could be his final time playing the Bears in front of the Chicago crowd.
He provided an interesting answer.
I asked Aaron Rodgers if he shouted "I STILL OWN YOU" because it might be his last time playing the Bears in this rivalry, bc he might never get a chance to shout at the double-bird woman again on this field.
He said, "I dont think this is my last one." Hmm…. pic.twitter.com/Z7YKEpfgNL

Rodgers is either saying he plans to return to Green Bay and continue to own the Bears, or play elsewhere and likely have a shot at playing Chicago.
There is plenty one can decipher from his quote but the main thing is that he doesn’t see his career ending soon.
And as long as he is in the NFL, Bears fans must be wary.
It may also be wise for fans to avoid flipping him the double-bird, as it only seems to fire up the future Hall of Famer.
