The Chicago Bears’ run at the playoffs ended unceremoniously in Lambeau field in a game that felt like a microcosm of the entire season. The Bears’ offense failed to move the ball on the ground early, all but abandoned the run later, and ultimately remained too inconsistent throughout the game to amass more than 13 points. That means the Bears totaled 16 points in 8 quarters this season against the Packers, a low mark that no-doubt played a role in their rival’s crippling divisional sweep. The Bears came into this season knowing that the offense needed to “take the next step” and, if two games against the Packers are any indication, it didn’t.
In this video, I break down the 5 sets of plays that I think best represent the Bears’ game in Lambeau, specifically discussing...
- Why the Bears’ running game struggled to get off the ground
- The impact of officiating in the current NFL
- How Aaron Rodgers galvanized the Packers’ offense
- The up-and-down nature of Trubisky’s performance
- My favorite defensive play of the game
- And much, much more...
