although Opening week loss there was no real reason to worry about Green Bay Packersespecially given the Chicago Bears They were coming to town. They just needed to settle for what they do best.
This season, it’s probably not the Packers’ favorite way of having Aaron Rodgers throw it all over the place. It’s Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon running the ball, a talented defense that flies and hits hard. And he’ll play back-to-back NFL MVP when he has to.
The Packers started slowly but once Jones and Dillon started picking up yards in pieces, the Bears were in trouble. The Hazmon didn’t do much in the second half but they still stuck to Decisive win 10-27.
The Hazmons lost 23-7 in their first week to the Minnesota Vikings. Maybe this was just a tough job for the Packers in the opening, or we’ll find out that the Vikings are a lot better than expected. But we saw Sunday night that the packages weren’t going anywhere.
The Hazmons dominate the first half
However, the Bears started quickly, heading downhill after a field goal from the Packers. Justin Fields ran for the landing. The Bears took a 7-3 lead and the NBC booth was trying hard to convince everyone that the Bears had a chance to beat the annoyance.
The beams took the rest of the half. Their last four drives in the first half resulted in three touchdowns and a header. It wasn’t that the Packers beat the inferior Bears. It was a look at how the Packers want to win this season.
Jones went over 100 yards early in the third quarter and finished with a score of 132. He scored two goals. Dillon had 61 yards in 18 runs. Not many teams want balance if they have a midfielder like Rodgers, but this is how Green Bay built their roster.
Rodgers is still great, even with a group of young receivers that seem to frustrate him. He threw a touchdown on Allen Lazard to give the Packers a 24-7 lead before the break. Rodgers was effective, with 234 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
The offense slowed down after the first half. There were some dirty mistakes. It looked like a case of the Packers giving up after taking a big lead in the first half, as the Bears weren’t much of a threat to bother them.
Green Bay defense clings to victory
The two belts defense wasn’t a good day last week against the Vikings. Justin Jefferson ran free in high school quite often, and cornerback Jayer Alexander aloud wondered why he wasn’t chasing Jefferson.
There is so much talent in the Green Bay defense that the Packers have been looking bad quite often this season. Once the beams regained the lead, the defense quickly began to play. Those impulsive in passes had good pressure on the fields. The bears’ receptors were hit as soon as I caught the ball. Chicago scored on her first run, and had a total of 10 yards on her next five runs.
The second half was a bit dirtier. A flip flop into Dillon deep into the Bears helped prevent the game from getting completely out of hand. No progress in the NFL was safe on Sunday, and the Bears made it interesting for a brief period in the fourth quarter. They were late 24-10 and headed to the Packers’ 1 yard line, but inexplicably called it a quarterback from the gun formation rather than having Fields line up under center and sneak up on it. Fields stopped predictably and the entire match ended.
The Packers get a better test next week when they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They won’t be able to take the second half and beat the Buccaneers, but we know their preferred formula for winning that match.
