Description

The Packers came out and the offense was humming - Aaron Rodgers and Co. basically had their way with a Bears team that was missing it's best defensive lineman due to injury.




  • OFFENSE:


    • It was nice to see the Packers actually have some "juice" at home considering their past 2 games at Lambeau were extremely lethargic on all sides of the ball for whatever reason.

    • Mitch Trubisky started and stunk up the joint - talk about a colossal bust of a No. 2 overall pick.  He might very well be the Bears' version of what Tony Mandarich was to the Packers.

    • Aaron Rodgers had 4 touchdown passes in this game - he played very well and had some great throws. He also hit the 50,000 yards passing career milestone in this game.

    • Robert Tonyan is running away as TE 1 right now, he had a nice TD catch in this game and might actually make the pro bowl...Jace Sternberger is a distant 2nd on this team now.

    • Davante Adams had a receiving TD and caught his 500th pass as a Packer.

    • The unsung hero this season has been the outstanding and versatile play of 2nd year offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins. He had to fill in a center when Corey Linsley got hurt again and the team didn't miss a beat.  He has now played at least one snap at EVERY position on the offensive line in his short career.



  • DEFENSE:

    • The defense played ok in the first half, even though they gave up a 56 yard run on like the 2nd play of the game.

    • Rashan Gary got the start ahead of Preston Smith for the first time ever and played ok.

    • There were 2 late, garbage time touchdowns that made the game seem closer than it actually was, but still the ease at which the Bears scored is just a microcosm of the defense as a whole.  The listless Bears offense still put 25 points and over 300 yards of offense - not good.



  • SPECIAL TEAMS:

    • Much better than the previous meltdown in Indianapolis, but Mason Crosby missed the first extra point attempt so there is still something to gripe about.



  • PREDICTIONS:

    • Andy: 31-20 Packers

    • Jeremy: 31-25 Packers

    • Elliot: 28-27 Packers
