Aaron Rodgers walked the walk so he can talk the talk.
The Packers took a late 24-14 lead over the Bears following a Rodgers fourth-quarter rushing touchdown, when the Green Bay passer decided to pass on some verbal jabs to Bears fans watching in the nearby stands.

“I still own you! I still own you!,” Rodgers screams to the Bears fans following the score.
After the game, Rodgers said it wasn’t exactly a spur-of-the-moment. Rodgers says he “blacked out” after seeing a Bears fan flipped him the double bird after the score.
Rodgers, after all, is not necessarily wrong. He just spent some time reminding Bears fans who’s still the King in the (NFC) North. Since taking the reins full time in Green Bay in 2008, the Packers have won the NFC North seven times, most of any team in the division, and earned his 21st win over the Bears on Sunday afternoon. He is 21-5 against Chicago.
Following the game, Rodgers made his way to the tunnel, with a matter-of-fact statement to a stadium hand: “They want me to get out of here fast.”
With two more TDs on the day, Rodgers now owns 57 touchdowns passes against the Bears, most against any opponent. The rushing touchdown, though, is just his second career TD against the Chicago defense.
The win knocked the Bears down to 3-3 on the season.
If that’s not a taunting call, then we’re not sure what is.
