Packers QB Brett Hundley suffers hamstring injury vs. Bears

The Packers needed to respond, and they did.

The Packers allowed Lacy to leave via free agency and did little to address the running back position aside from drafting a few backs in the middle-to-late rounds.

"I didn't make it clear what we trying to get done there", McCarthy said.

Hundley completed 18 of 25 passes - even though his hamstring tightened during the game - to help the Packers win their eighth straight at Soldier Field counting the playoffs. "I think it gives us a boost of confidence for sure, especially getting the first one under us, but every week is a new week". "He came in with a mission".

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews piled on after the game, saying his defense took advantage of the Bears' obvious weaknesses on offense. Sunday, he didn't make the Packers pay. The Baltimore Ravens have lost nine of their last 11 road games. His fourth quarter was, statistically, the best 15 minutes of quarterbacking the Packers had seen all season. Davante Adams and Randall Cobb have combined for 865 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Jordy Nelson has 33 receptions.

But Chicago had held opposing quarterbacks to an average 88.7 rating up until Sunday, and Hundley walked off the field with a 110.8 and an efficient 8.5 yards per pass average. "Just handling the different situations, particularly the high pressure there in the fourth quarter". Check out NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Game Pass.

When asked what prompted his more forceful approach in practice last week, Hundley said: "Just myself".

The Bears had a replay challenge backfire in a big way as they were threatening to score in the second quarter. Green Bay center Corey Linsley discussed a miscommunication issue that happened during the game, and how the young signal-caller handled it.

"Today, he had more opportunities", coach Mike McCarthy said.

"When I watched the review, I felt like they made the right call", he said. "So it was awesome for him to take that leadership step".

"I was like, 'Good for him.'".
