During the offseason, the Packers made an offer to the then restricted free agent Kyle Fuller. The Bears quickly matched, signing the 26-year-old to a 4 year/$56 million deal. After last night’s performance, there were likely Bears fans who wished the Bears hadn’t matched.

It started with him getting beat on a 39-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Geronimo Allison at the start of the fourth quarter to bring the Packers to within 10 points. Fuller, as the number one cornerback on the team, simply cannot get beat like that.

However, the most frustrating performance from Fuller’s night was yet to come. It involved an image that Bears fans likely woke up with this morning and one that will continue to haunt fans and Fuller for the entire season.

After a Cody Parkey field goal, the Packers got the ball on their own 25-yard line, down six points with 2:39 left to go in the game. On first down, Rodgers threw a slant to Davante Adams. It was wildly off target and hit Fuller in the hands and chest.

Had Fuller secured that interception, the game would have been over. However, it fell to the turf and two plays later, Randall Cobb scored on a 75-yard touchdown reception.

Yes, this is a team sport, but it’s made up of individuals making plays. And Fuller’s failure to make a simple catch cost the Bears deeply in this one.
