Bear & Balanced: What we saw in Bears vs Packers

JB & Lester rewatched the Bears vs Packers game and they have some cooled down takes right here.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears went to Lambeau Field, and the outcome wasn't surprising in any way. The Green Bay Packers had their way with the Bears for most of the 60 minutes, and while there were some nice moments from Chicago, those were few and far between. The Packers' twelfth man — no I'm not talking about the crowd — had a hand in the game too, but that wasn't the reason Chicago's front seven was gashed all night, nor was it the reason Aaron Rodgers was finding receivers running free.

The 2022 season is young, and the Bears have a few winnable games coming up, so while this one was disappointing, let's not overreact.
