Packers add field goal, Fields throws INT

The Packers added a late field goal to extend their lead, 27-10. Following the kick off, Bears QB Justin Fields threw an interception that all but ended the game.

Bears force a fumble, add a field goal

Bears defensive lineman Mike Pennel recovered a Packers’ fumble midway through the third quarter. The Packers were looking to extend their lead, already a sizable advantage.

The Bears’ offense, however, couldn’t punch the ball into the end zone after the turnover. Cairo Santos made a 44-yard field goal, which cut into the Packers’ lead, 24-10.

Fields comes up short on fourth-and-goal

Justin Fields led the Bears’ offense down the field during a key fourth-quarter drive. He picked up a first down with his legs on a reaching attempt to give his team a chance, trailing two touchdowns.

A few plays later, he took a quarterback keeper and tried to score it himself, but the Packers defense stuffed him at the goal line.

Rodgers throws his 2nd touchdown of the night

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to receiver Allen Lazard late in the second quarter. He led the Packers 67 yards on seven plays. The Packers extended their lead, 24-7, just before halftime.

Rodgers appeared to attack the Bears’ rookies in the secondary. He threw a tough completion to Randall Cobb with Bears cornerback Kyler Gordon in coverage.

Rodgers connects with Jones for touchdown

Aaron Rodgers threw his 450th career touchdown pass on a short toss to running back Aaron Jones, who ran in an 8-yard score. The Packers extended their lead, 17-7, in the second quarter.

A penalty had previously sent Green Bay moving backward. The Bears had them stuck in a first-and-20 situation, and then a second-and-28 situation. Still, Rodgers completed two chunk plays and gave his team a first down. Jones scored moments later.

Aaron Jones scampers into end zone

Packers running back Aaron Jones had a huge hole to work with on a 15-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter. The Packers made it look easy on a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive. Green Bay grabbed the lead back, 10-7.

Fields runs in touchdown

On the Bears’ first possession of the game, the offense drove 71 yards on seven plays and capped it with a 3-yard touchdown run from quarterback Justin Fields. The Bears took their first lead, 7-3.

Earlier in the drive, Fields completed a flea flicker pass to receiver Equanimeous St. Brown for a 30-yard gain. The trickery worked for offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. Running back David Montgomery totaled 38 yards on four carries during the opening drive.

Bears hold Packers to field goal

Rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon had a nice pass break up and defensive end Trevis Gipson sacked Aaron Rodgers on third down to force a Packers field goal on their first drive of the game. Mason Crosby was good from 40 yards to give Green Bay a lead, 3-0.

Gordon’s pass break up came in a one-on-one situation against Green Bay receiver Allen Lazard.

Injury updates

For the Bears, receiver Velus Jones Jr. is inactive and will not play. Jones has been dealing with a hamstring injury for several weeks. He did not play in the season opener last week.

Defensive back Elijah Hicks, offensive lineman Michael Schofield, defensive back Lamar Jackson, offensive lineman Ja’Tyre Carter and tight end Jake Tonges are also inactive Sunday.

For the Packers, receiver Allen Lazard is active and will play after missing last week’s opener. Tackle David Bakhtiari is inactive. Also inactive for Green Bay is safety Tariq Carpenter, tackle Caleb Jones, lineman Sean Rhyan, receiver Samori Toure and defensive lineman Jonathan Ford.

Big moment for Justin Fields

Sunday will be one of the most-watched Bears games this season. It’s the only time the Bears are scheduled to play on Sunday Night Football, the NFL’s premier broadcast. Bears vs. Packers always draws a good viewing audience, too.

This will be a big moment for this young Bears team and quarterback Justin Fields. The Packers come in after losing their Week 1 opener to the Vikings. They will be hungry to remind the Bears where they stand in the NFC North pecking order.

Here are five things to watch during the game. Was anybody brave enough to pick the Bears? Here are our staff picks for this week’s game. If the Bears are ever going to “take the north,” as general manager Ryan Poles said, they’re going to have to go through the Packers at some point.
