Hello my Packer people!
Let me start out by saying something I can’t go without saying.
DA BEARS STILL SUCK!
After a rough patch, I don’t think there are many better games the Packers could have picked as a fresh start than by beating the Chicago Bears.
I’ll admit this post may be a bit of a let down. I had some troubles getting cable access for the game and was only able to keep track of the game through updates on an app. With that being said, I will be doing a recap, but it will be very basic.
So here it is. The first quarter saw only field goals. On their first drive, the Packers were able to put the first points on the board early making it 3-0 Green Bay. In their next drive though, Chicago responded with their own field goal to tie things up at 3-3. The 1st quarter ended with this score.
In quarter two, the Packers scored a touchdown with a 37 yard rush from Ty Montgomery bringing the score to 10-3 Packers. In their next drive, Chicago fumbled for a touchback. Unfortunately, the Packers were forced to punt to conclude their drive. The Bears brought the first half to a close with a FG to bring the score to 10-6 Green Bay.
The Packers started out the second half with the ball and grabbed a quick three points making the score 13-6 Green Bay. The next points did not come until the fourth quarter.
In the fourth quarter the Packers continued their drive down the field to start out the quarter with another FG putting the Packers up by 10. 16-6 Packers. The Bears kicked it in gear in the next drive and scored a touchdown in four speedy plays down the field. 16-13 Packers. The Packers waisted no time in striking back with a touchdown of their own in the following drive to bring the lead back up to 10. The Bears went on to score one more field goal to shrink the Packers lead to 23-16. With about a minute left in the game, Mason Crosby missed a 35 yard field goal. The game concluded with a final score of 23-16 Green Bay.
Finally a win! It feels good to be back on the right side of things this week. Hundley had a decent game for his first win as a starter, throwing for 212 yards and a touchdown, and completing 18 of 25 passes. Heres hoping for another win next week when we’re back home at Lambeau facing off the Baltimore Ravens.
Go Pack Go!
