Packers top Bears for first win with Brett Hundley

Packers top Bears for first win with Brett Hundley

In one whirling motion, he hugged Aaron Rodgers so hard it looked like it might crack the former MVP's already-dodgy collarbone. Davante Adams and Randall Cobb have combined for 865 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Jordy Nelson has 33 receptions. They have lost three consecutive games and in danger of falling out of the playoff when they play the Chicago Bears on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV). His deep ball spiraled softly into the hands of Adams, who was pushed out of bounds after a 42-yard gain. And he's able to take that from the practice field to game day.

"I appreciate him throwing the flag, saying I was in", Cunningham said. "He's a heck of a playmaker". "It's not a drop, but it's definitely a play-making opportunity that I've got to make".

It was a remarkable turnaround for a player who has struggled with his new starring role in the Green Bay offense.

The Green Bay Packers are reeling since they lost star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. His quarterback rating was 58.3. Early against the Bears, the Packers seemed poised to pound the rock.

Trubisky, meanwhile, threw for 297 but was sacked five times.

Hundley was an efficient 18-of-25 for 212 yards and a TD. Shortly thereafter, Montgomery left with a rib injury and didn't return. While Montgomery began the season as the Packers starting running back, he and Jones have been splitting carries over the course of the last several weeks.

Chicago was down 10-3 when it drove to the Green Bay 22 midway through the second quarter.

The difference in demeanor was clear.

"He's getting back to where he feels comfortable and has that confidence to let it go". He showed off his mobility with a 17-yard scamper on third-and-2 that set up the Adams touchdown pass. A wasted timeout on one of the most obvious hard counts in National Football League history as the first quarter wound down.

As a general rule, it's irresponsible to make broad proclamations about a team based on one game, but in this case, it's appropriate to make an exception: Fox's job has got to be in jeopardy after Sunday's pitiful performance. "I want to be a Green Bay Packer". Beating the Bears isn't exactly the kind of marquee win that will strike fear in the hearts of NFC North rivals.

The defense finally held a quarterback under 300 yards passing, but not by much. At worst, it was going to be first-and-goal. "We have to ride the wave".

"If I go down at the 1, next play, Jordan (Howard) gets the ball and it's a touchdown".

That's a step in the right direction - and exactly what the franchise needed to see after losing both its effective tailbacks. Then later in the fourth, Hundley connected with Adams on a big third down that helped limit the time Chicago could have for a late comeback.
