In an NFC North battle that has little more than pride on the line at this point, the Green Bay Packers outlasted the Chicago Bears for a 28-19 win.

The Packers aren’t technically dead yet, as there’s a path where they can still backdoor their way into a playoff spot.

Offensive spotlight: After a scintillating sophomore campaign, running back A.J. Dillon has had nowhere near the third year many were expecting. His 18-carry, 93-yard, one-touchdown performance against the Bears set or tied season highs in all three of those categories. Dillon also added three catches for 26 yards in easily his most complete performance of the season.

Defensive spotlight: Packers CB Keisean Nixon continues to turn heads whenever he’s given an opportunity. He had a game-ending interception on his only target of the game. Nixon played 22 coverage snaps without allowing a catch after being forced to take over the slot role after Eric Stokes went down for the season.

Rookie spotlight: Bears LB Jack Sanborn racked up 14 tackles, including five defensive stops, to lead all defenders in the game. Sanborn was targeted six times in coverage and allowed only four catches for 23 yards, with only one of those resulting in a first down.

Offensive line spotlight: After a rocky return from an ACL tear, Elgton Jenkins was the best he’s looked all season on Sunday. He not only didn’t allow a pressure on 32 pass-blocking snaps at left guard but Jenkins wasn’t downgraded once in pass protection on the day.
