Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers famously declared last year that he "owns" the Chicago Bears, and he backed that up Sunday night by spearheading a 27-10 victory at Lambeau Field.

After a lackluster performance in the season opener last week, Rodgers was nearly pristine against the Bears. He went 19-of-25 for 234 yards and two touchdowns, but he also coughed up a fumble for the second straight game.

The turnover notwithstanding, Rodgers helped propel the Packers to their first win of the season. He had a string of 14 straight completions at one point, which tied a career high.

Green Bay running back Aaron Jones also had an outstanding game, carrying the ball 15 times for 132 yards and a touchdown and adding three catches for 38 yards and another score.

The Packers used a 21-point second quarter to put the game out of reach. The team scored just three points in the second half, but that was all it needed.

Much of the social media commentary featured praise for Rodgers, Jones and Green Bay's stellar first-half performance:

Dan Wiederer @danwiederer

Second quarter has been a clinic by the Packers.

Ryan Clark @Realrclark25

This is the exact offense you expected from the Packers. Big in the run game and using the short, quick passing game to creat run after catch opportunities. Going to have to do more to protect 12 to create some explosive plays at some point.

Ryan Wood @ByRyanWood

Vintage Aaron Rodgers there. Moving up in the pocket, hits Randall Cobb with a perfect ball for 20 yards. So subtle how quickly he sets to pass on the move, but few do it like him.

Courtney Cronin @CourtneyRCronin

Aaron Rodgers is picking these rookies apart. Sheesh.

That’s a dot from A-Aron

The Bears have 134 total yards of offense after three quarters. The Packers have run for 166 yards. Aaron Jones has 112 yards on 12 carries.

Peter Bukowski @Peter_Bukowski

That 8 yard run actually lowered Aaron Jones' yards per carry average tonight

Michael Fabiano @Michael_Fabiano

Aaron Jones is beating the Bears by himself.

Wes Hodkiewicz @WesHod

Aaron Jones is on one tonight.

Dan Wiederer @danwiederer

Aaron Jones having a night. Already past 100 yards from scrimmage with two TDs,

Zach Kruse @zachkruse2

I don't think the first guy has tackled Aaron Jones once tonight.

Sunday night's game was a cakewalk for Green Bay, which might explain the quiet second half after the fireworks in the second quarter. The Packers were on cruise control against a Bears team that was clearly overmatched.

However, Green Bay will have to play a complete game next Sunday when the team travels to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Packers surely are hoping to carry the momentum from Sunday night's victory into next week's matchup.
