Cal in NFL: Aaron Rodgers Tells Chicago Fans: 'We Still Own You'

Packers QB responds to Bears fan flipping him the bird. Marvin Jones Jr. has a big game in Jaguars' first win.

Former Cal wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. had his best game since joining the Jaguars in Jacksonville's first win, but Aaron Rodgers was again the headliner of former Golden Bears in the NFL with his interaction with Chicago fans.

Rodgers was 17-for-23 for 195 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a 128.0 passer rating in Green Bay's 24-14 win over the Bears on Sunday that improved the Packers' record to 5-1.

But his most significant play was a 6-yard scramble for a touchdown that put the Packers ahead 24-14 with 4:30 left and led to Rodgers yelling at fans at Soldier Field

The Fox TV microphones picked up Rodgers' message to the Bears' faithful.

"All my f---ing life, I own you," Rodgers shouted at the crowd, according to ESPN.com. "I still own you. I still own you."

 It was the Packers' fifth straight win over Chicago, and Green Bay has a 20-3 record against the Bears over their past 23 meetings. Rodgers is 22-5 against the Bears in his career.

Rodgers explained his conversation with the Chicago crowd after the game.

"Sometimes you black out on the field," he said, "and I blacked out, in a good way.

"I looked up in the stands, and in the front row all I saw was a woman giving me the double bird. I'm not sure exactly what came out of my mouth next."

He addresses that issue early in the video below.

Here's how other former Cal players did in the NFL on Sunday.

Marvin Jones Jr., Jaguars wide receiver: Jones had his first 100-yard receiving day since joining Jacksonville, and he helped the Jaguars get their first win of the season, a 23-20 victory over the Dolphins in London.

Jones caught seven passes for 100 yards and his sweet 28-yard touchdown reception in the final minute of the first half reduced the Jaguars' deficit to 13-10. 

Here is Jones talking about the first win:

For the season, Jones has 28 receptions for 343 yards and three touchdowns.
