The Green Bay Packers bounced back in a big way on Sunday night, with quarterback Aaron Rodgers once again establishing his ownership of the Chicago Bears.
The Packers ran away with the game in the second quarter, outscoring the Bears 21-0 over the period to take a 24-7 lead into halftime that would never be threatened.
Wide receiver Allen Lazard, making his season debut for the Packers, capped off the run, reeling in a touchdown from Rodgers with just 32 seconds left in the first half.
After the touchdown, Lazard celebrated by miming pouring tea to this teammates, with the teammates who accepted the tea toppling over one by one.

For anyone who was checked out of NFL headlines over the off-season, this might appear an odd way to celebrate your first touchdown of the year, but Lazard was just poking a bit of fun at Rodgers.
Over the summer, Rodgers opened up about his experiences with ayahuasca, a hallucinatory drug used as a spiritual medicine that has gained popularity in Western cultures over the past few years.
"We sat three different nights with the medicine," Rodgers told NBC Sports' Peter King during training camp. "I came in with an intention of doing a lot of healing of other relationships and bringing in certain people to have conversations with. Most of the work was around myself and figuring out what unconditional love of myself looks like. In doing that, allowing me to understand how to unconditionally love other people but first realizing it's gotta start with myself."
The drug is usually consumed as a tea, leading to Lazard's celebration.
While the true intent of Lazard's celebration was somewhat unclear during the game, receiver Sammy Watkins all but confirmed the bit after the final whistle.

After a frustrating loss to the Vikings to open the season, it's no surprise that the Packers were in need of a bit of a spark.
Lazard and Rodgers were just the guys to provide it.
