The Chicago Bears will play the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in the first two games of the season. Bears fans are excited for this game as fans want to see Justin Fields develop against their arch-rival in his sophomore season.
Despite a 7-3 lead in the first quarter, the Packers’ 21-point second quarter seemed good enough to beat Chicago. That gave them a 24-7 lead at halftime, too much for the Bears to overcome.
Eberflus Packers debut: Matt Eberflus’ next big test after winning the coaching tourney was his Bears-Packers debut. Despite leading 7-3 at the beginning of the first quarter, the Eberfluss team could not regain the lead, eventually losing 0-1 to Green Bay.
Bears defence: Chicago once again struggled to stop Aaron Jones against the run. Jones gained 132 yards on 15 carries (8.8 average) and 1 touchdown. The Bears rushed for over 176 yards for the second week in a row, which should be a concern moving forward.
Justin Fields Game: Justin Fields only completed 47.1% of his passes against the 49ers. They must do well to beat the Packers. He completed 63.6% of his passes, but only 70 yards late in the fourth quarter.
When is it over?
Aaron Rodgers tied the game when he hit Allen Lazar for a 5-yard touchdown with 32 seconds left in the first half. That game put the Packers up by 17 points, which was too much for the Bears to overcome. Despite a 7-3 lead, Chicago never had a consistent run against Green Bay.
David Montgomery: Montgomery was the all-star tonight for the Bear’s offence. He carried the ball 15 times, rushing for 122 yards. He had a fantastic second half. He helped get Chicago into a scoring position multiple times, but the team couldn’t capitalize.
The Chicago Bears suffered a 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night as Green Bay extended their streak to seven. The Packers now hold a 104-95-6 lead over the Bears.
Running the ball: The Bears ran the ball better with their only touchdown from the field on Sunday. With that, David Montgomery had 15 carries for 122 yards – a nice way to bounce back after only 26 yards last week.
After a great first drive, the Bear’s offence stalled and failed to produce more than seven points in the first half. Green Bay scored 21 points in the second quarter as Chicago’s defence held the field for most of the first half. However, the Bear’s offence gained zero yards on three different possessions.
An AJ Dillon fumble recovered by Dominique Robinson early in the third quarter cost the Bears a touchdown, leading to a 44-yard field goal by Kairos Santos that capped Green Bay’s 14 points.
The offence showed signs of life in the fourth quarter as David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert started big runs against the Green Bay defence. Montgomery ran five times in the drive for 59 yards, while Herbert carried it twice for 33 yards.
Unfortunately, the Bears’ comeback attempt ended with a controversial fumble conversion by Justin Fields from the Packers’ 1-yard line on fourth down.
After the fumble, Green Bay put together a 10-play, 89-yard drive capped by Mason Crosby’s 28-yard field goal to give the Packers a 27-10 lead. The Bears would win just over two minutes into the game before Fields intercepted Jaire Alexander, sealing the win for Green Bay.
The Bears will look to bounce back from a disappointing loss to their opponent in three weeks when they went 0-1-1 against the Houston Texans at Warrior Field.
