Bears upset Packers
December 4, 2015
The Chicago Bears beat the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving night, improving to a 5-6 overall record and are in third place in NFC North. The Packers have slipped to 7-4 and are second in NFC North. Chicago’s next game will be against the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 6. The Packers will play the Lions on Dec. 3.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler completed 19 out of 31 passes that game, collecting 200 yards and threw one touchdown.
Jeremy Langford stepped up and led Chicago in rushing that game. Langford rushed 12 times for 48 yards. His longest run of the day was 14 yards and he had one touchdown.
Alshon Jeffrey led the Bears in receiving. He caught seven passes for 90 yards with his longest catch of the day at 22 yards.
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rogers threw for 202 yards, completing 22 out of 43 passes. Rogers had one touchdown and one interception that game.
Eddie Lacy came back hot, running for 105 yards on 17 carries with his longest run at 29 yards.
Randall Cobb led the team in receiving, catching six passes for 74 yards. The longest catch of the night for him was 32 yards.
I really expected the Packers to win this one. After beating the Vikings, they looked like themselves a little bit, moving the ball effectively. We saw none of that Thursday night, and the Packers looked like a mess. Aaron Rogers gave the fans a scare after an injury to his wrist, but he stayed in. Eddie Lacy was back on track, but that couldn’t pull them to a victory. Are the Packers losing their touch?
