The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Brett Hundley and Green Bay Packers Get a Win Over Division Rival Chicago Bears

Brett Hundley and Green Bay Packers Get a Win Over Division Rival Chicago Bears

Packers beat the Bears
Publish Date: 11/13/2017
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Game: Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears

Game Result: Green Bay Packers 23, Chicago Bears 16

Brett Hundley is now 1-2 as a starter for the Green Bay Packers after leading the team to a victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The Packers pass defense, yet again, looked exploitable giving up nearly 300 yards to Bears pass catchers. However, after being mauled by the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys on the ground, they held the Bears to 55 yards on 17 carries. Coming into Week 10, Jordan Howard was the 5th leading rusher in the NFL, and the gap between he and the resurgent Los Angeles Ramsโ€™ Todd Gurley only got wider.

After failing to generate any sort of pressure over the last few weeks, the Packers pass rush showed up in a big way on Sunday. Nick Perry continued to build on his breakout year last season, as he totaled three sacks on the day. Mike Daniels continues to be one of the most underrated defenders in the NFL. Heโ€™s solid in both pass rush and run defense and finished the day with a sack of his own and two tackles for loss. He and Kenny Clark made Jordan Howard work for every yard on the day, while also consistently harassing quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

Since taking over at quarterback, we have seen Brett Hundley be ultra-conservative and look uncomfortable in the pocket. While he didnโ€™t look amazing on Sunday, the progress that he has made was obvious. In the first half, Jordy Nelson drew a pass interference penalty 30 yards down the field on a deep throw that has been nonexistent since Aaron Rodgers went down. This opened up the run game for Ty Montgomery who was having a very good game before exiting with a rib injury. After establishing some early momentum, the Packers slowed down for much of the game allowing the Bears to creep back to within three, before Hundley found Davante Adams for a great touchdown. He did a great job of extending the game the next drive to put the Packers in field goal range finding Adams again down the sideline for a beautiful one-handed grab.

Coming into the game, the Bears knew that Hundley has not been very comfortable working in the pocket, and they did a great job harassing him finishing with three sacks of their own. Minus a few big plays here and there, the defense did a good job of containing a Packers offense that has given them fits in the past. However, those plays proved to be their undoing as the Bears offense struggled to give their defense any support until late in the game. Trubisky has shown progress in his short career. The Packers pass defense has continued to struggle, and he did a great job of exploiting them. It just wasnโ€™t his day to get a win, however, as the team ultimately came up short in the fourth quarter.

The Packers look to keep things rolling next week at home against the Baltimore Ravens (4-5) who are coming off a bye. The Bears stay at home again for a meeting with the Detroit Lions (5-4) who look to keep their season on track in pursuit of a wild card spot. In the wide-open NFC conference, where there is a lot of teams competing for a few spots, these games mean everything.
