The Chicago Bears got whooped on Sunday.
After two impressive wins on the road in Weeks 2 and 3, Chicago returned to their home field to take on division rival Green Bay, and Bears fans had high hopes of keeping pace with the Detroit Lions in the NFC North. Unfortunately, two things happened during this game that everyone kinda knew could happen:
1- The Packers came alive for the first time in 2014, lighting up a severely injured Chicago defense, and 2- Jay Cutler threw some interceptions.
Green Bay entered Soldier Field on Sunday having not really shown any firepower thus far in 2014, and Jay Cutler was having a career-year from a statistical and decision-making perspective. But of course, neither of those things could be eternal.
The Packers walked away with a 38-17 victory.
We'll have more in-depth analysis tomorrow, but some quick stats for your perusal:
Jay Cutler: 22/34, 256 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT, 82.5 rating
Matt Forte: 23 rushes, 122 yds; 4 rec, 34 yds
Martellus Bennett: 9 rec, 134 yds
Brandon Marshall: 2 rec, 19 yds, 1 TD
Alshon Jeffery: 4 rec, 39 yds, 1 TD
Aaron Rodgers: 22/28, 302 yds, 4 TD, 0 INT, 151.2 rating
Eddie Lacy: 17 rushes, 48 yds, 1 TD
Randall Cobb: 7 rec, 113 yds, 2 TD
Jordy Nelson: 10 rec, 108, 2 TD
The Bears fall to 2-2, behind the now 3-1 Detroit Lions. Green Bay also sits at 2-2. The North is shaping up to be a tough division, but the Bears are hurting right now.
Up next: at Carolina, at Atlanta, then back home for Miami.
