The Packers and Bears combined for 854 yards and 55 points in their game on Sunday, but the offensive fireworks on display rendered another unit historically inactive. The 38-17 Green Bay win became only the second game in NFL history without a punt.

The only other game to accomplish that feat happened in 1992, when the Bills beat the 49ers 34-31.

The Bears faced three fourth downs and were 2-for-3 on conversion attempts, including a fumbled snap that Jay Cutler picked up and ran for a 16-yard gain

The Packers faced three fourth downs and attempted a field goal each time. One attempt was successful, one was blocked and the Bears committed a penalty on the third to give the Packers a first down.
