CHICAGO (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns, two to James Jones, and the Green Bay Packers beat Chicago 31-23 to spoil John Fox’s debut as Bears coach Sunday afternoon.

The Packers got all they could handle from the rebuilding Bears, but took control down the stretch to beat them for the 10th time in 11 games, including the postseason.

Rodgers improved to 13-3 lifetime against Chicago. The 2014 MVP completed 18 of 23 passes for 189 yards.

Jones, who spent seven seasons in Green Bay before signing with Oakland last year, caught four passes for 51 yards. That included a one-handed grab on a 13-yard score late in the first quarter and a 1-yard TD in the third — a good start after being released by the Raiders in the spring and by the Giants on the final roster cut.
