The Chicago Bears played great football for 30 minutes against the Green Bay Packers. Too bad there was a second half.
The Packers made the necessary adjustments at halftime after being down to the Chicago Bears 27-21 at halftime to outscore the Bears 24-3 in the second half.
Aaron Rodgers continued to own the Chicago Bears as the Packers beat the Bears 45-30 at Lambeau Field.
Rodgers is now 22-5 against the Bears and the Packers have won the last six Bears-Packers games and are 19-3 in the last ten years against the Chicago Bears.
This current episode of Rodgers dominates the Bears saw him threw for 341 yards and four touchdowns.
The Bears have lost eight of their last nine games and have guaranteed their first losing regular season under head coach Matt Nagy—we will get to him shortly.
Despite the blowout, there were some good to great moments to appreciate for the Bears’ fans. There was also a lot of bad to cover.
Jakeem Grant was great
Grant followed up a good showing against the Arizona Cardinals with even better performance at Lambeau Field.
Grant had two spectacular touchdowns. The first came on a quick pitch from Justin Fields and he raced 46 yards for the score.
Jakeem was going so fast he would have gotten a speeding ticket if he were in a school zone.
He was even faster when he took a punt return 97-yards for a touchdown to put the Bears ahead by 10.
It looked like the punt return was going to be a disaster as Grant fielded the punt at his own three-yard line. The Packers’ special teams is awful and Grant made them pay with the longest punt return in team history.
Grant has six receptions for 108 yards and three scores in the past two games. He is showing he can be quite a weapon on offense worth exploring the rest of the season.
