Packers top Bears for first win without Rodgers

Share

The Bulldogs were again without senior captain Makai Mason, who missed all of previous year and has yet to get in a game this season, and 6-foot, 9-inch Jordan Brunch.

Bears coach John Fox inadvertently gave the ball away when he challenged in hopes of a play by running back Benny Cunningham being ruled a touchdown in the first half of Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

It's not easy to be the one to fill in for Aaron Rodgers.

Prior to the Green Bay Packers taking on the Chicago Bears inside Soldier Field, many believed that this would be a low-scoring game. In the second half, Green Bay converted five of its eight third-down situations in which Hundley dropped back to pass. Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come and the field goal unit irons everything out during the week.

Not so much. Fox won his challenge all right, and lost the ball. Mason Crosby was good from 40 yards on the Pack's opening drive, sparked by a Randall Cobb 38 yard catch and run. Before joining the Bears, he had two receptions for nine yards in Los Angeles this season. Let's take a look at who stepped up in order to beat the Bears, as well as a couple players who need to turn their game around in order keep this team afloat.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -Mark Ingram II rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns to power New Orleans over Buffalo. The Saints set a team record with six rushing touchdowns and had their third-highest rushing total in franchise history. It was the team's worst home loss since a 56-10 defeat against the New England Patriots on November 18, 2007, and the worst defensive performance under new head coach Sean McDermott. "Unless it's fourth down, you don't reach the ball out at the goal line, in the red zone", he said.

That seemed like a long shot after Week 9, but Hundley's ideal fourth quarter and the veteran accuracy he displayed connecting with Adams suggest it might not be such a bad bet after all. Adams was the top target with 5 receptions for 90 yards.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton finished 20 of 35 for 265 yards, but lost a pair of fumbles in the second quarter, one leading to Murray's second touchdown.

Chicago Head Coach John Fox challenged the spot but never dreamed of the replay decision from NY.

Hundley finished 18 of 25 for 212 yards and a score, withstanding three sacks for a passer rating of 110.8, easily his best in three plus games. A delay of game penalty directly before his third down bomb to Adams late in the fourth quarter while the Bears were still threatening.
