Mitchell Trubisky commits turnovers.

Aaron Rodgers throws touchdown passes.

It can’t be put much more simply than that. Rodgers, to no one’s surprise, outplayed Trubisky to ridiculous proportions in a quarterbacking mismatch Sunday night. And the Green Bay Packers all but wrapped up the NFC North title by beating the Chicago Bears, 41-25, at Lambeau Field in a game not nearly as close as the final score suggested.

The Packers led by as many as 31 points, at 41-10, on their way to improving to 8-3. They’re three games ahead of the second-place Bears, who are 5-6 and on a five-game losing streak, and Minnesota Vikings with five games remaining in the regular season.

“This was a big one for us,” Rodgers told NBC after the game. “I never say must-win. But it was important for us to win this one. We’re up three games with five to go in the division. Rivalry game -- love beating Chicago.”

Rodgers threw four touchdown passes to four different receivers in a 21-for-29, 211-yard passing show. His touchdown throws went to wide receivers Davante Adams and Allen Lazard and tight ends Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan. Tailback Jamaal Williams added a touchdown run, and the Green Bay defense scored a touchdown on Preston Smith’s return of a fumble recovery.

Rodgers lamented missing a throw to Adams that he said he hits “99 out of 100” but called it “a fun night for us on offense.” He was not sacked and headed to the sideline in the game’s final moments as backup Tim Boyle took over. The only blemishes for the Packers were a missed extra point by kicker Mason Crosby and a knee injury suffered by center Corey Linsley.

Rodgers became the 11th quarterback in NFL history to surpass 50,000 career passing yards.

“It means I’ve been playing for a long time,” he said. “Some of those are longevity records. It feels good. I’m in my 16h season. I’ve seen a lot of ball, played a lot of ball. This was a good one for us tonight, though.”

In the season after the Packers used a first-round draft pick on a prospective eventual successor to Rodgers, Jordan Love, Rodgers is in the thick of the league MVP conversation. He was the NFL’s top-rated passer entering the weekend and he has 33 touchdown passes and four interceptions.

Thanks mostly to Rodgers’s ongoing excellence, the Packers are very much in the Super Bowl-contending mix in the NFC.

When the Bears were 5-1, it appeared they were destined to be in that group as well. Now that seems like a very long time ago. Coach Matt Nagy has been unable to get the offense going, and the quarterback situation is a mess. Nagy is being asked about his job security and said he’s not concerned about it.

“We understand where we’re at and that when you have games like this, you’ve got to figure out, you’ve got to soul-search,” Nagy said in a postgame video news conference. “And you’ve got to be able to stop the bleeding…. Obviously the last five weeks [have] been extremely difficult. It’s not fun because we all want to win…. When you go through these times, how do you respond? And I think that’s the test of true character.”

Trubisky, the former No. 2 overall selection in the NFL draft who was benched by Nagy earlier this season in favor of Nick Foles, regained the starting job for this game after Foles suffered a hip injury in the Bears’ final game before their bye week.

But Trubisky committed three turnovers, throwing two interceptions to Packers safety Darnell Savage and losing the fumble on a sack that led to Smith’s touchdown for the Packers.

“The turnovers, for us, is what we can’t have,” Nagy said.

Trubisky did throw three touchdown passes, two of them to wide receiver Allen Robinson. But two of those three touchdowns came long after the outcome was decided.

“It was kind of hard to assess just because, I mean, overall we were just playing from behind the whole time, which is not ideal,” Trubisky said. “You’ve got to take away the turnovers. You’ve got to protect the football. That’s pretty much the main thing that I’m concerned with.”

He declined to say whether he believed he earned another start.

“I think myself and the offense, we had kind of this expectation or picture of what we thought could happen going into this game,” Trubisky said in a video conference with reporters. “It just didn’t go that way from the get-go. And so, things like that happen sometimes. But I don’t know. It’s not my call. I just try to put my best foot forward every single day. The chips will lie where they are.”

Even the spirits of those on the Chicago defense seemed to sag. The Bears displayed some sloppy tackling, particularly on Williams’s touchdown run. That prompted analyst Tony Dungy, the Hall of Fame coach, to say on the NBC broadcast, “This is the Bears’ defense basically giving up here.”

Nagy said he did not question his players’ effort level.

“I just felt like they got after us the entire game from the first quarter to the very end,” Nagy said. “That’s basically where we’re at right now. I talked to the guys in the locker room afterwards. There’s guys that care. I think that’s what’s important to us. But they care and they know that we’ve got to do it on the field. It’s not about what we say.”
