The Chicago Bears were widely likely to be on the list of league’s worst teams this year but stunned the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 49ers, a presumed contender, in Week 1.
All it took was a familiar foe to quickly end their early momentum.
The Green Bay Packers won the most recent edition of the league’s oldest rivalry with a 27-10 victory on Sunday at Lambeau Field. It had been more of exactly the same in this matchup, as Green Bay has won seven in a row and 12 of the final 13 contrary to the Bears.
Social media marketing realized it had been the same kind of story for Chicago:

I’m so fed up with this feeling. First Favre. Now Rodgers. My entire GD life.

It appeared like things were finally changing for the Bears in this rivalry when Justin Fields capped off a seven-play, 71-yard drive with a touchdown operate on their opening possession. The running game looked strong with David Montgomery at the forefront, and the visitors suddenly had some early momentum.
Yet Aaron Rodgers did what he more often than not does to Chicago and threw touchdown passes to Aaron Jones and Allen Lazard in another quarter that also saw Jones run for a score. The Packers put 21 points on the board for the reason that quarter rather than looked back the win.
To Chicago’s credit, it battled back some and had a chance to pull within one score from 4th-and-goal from the 1-yard line in the ultimate quarter. Yet it made a decision to put Fields in shotgun and run quarterback power, and replay review determined the Packers stopped him though it appeared he reached the plane.
It had been the Bears’ final realistic chance, and Rodgers all but ended it with a deep ball to Sammy Watkins to create a field goal on the ensuing possession.
The good thing for Chicago may be the next two games are potentially winnable contrary to the Houston Texans and GAMBLING, but Sunday marked another loss to its bitter rivals.
