Packers LB Clay Matthews calls Bears offense 'one dimensional'

Packers LB Clay Matthews calls Bears offense 'one dimensional'”

It turned out that the ball bobbled in Cunningham's hand as he extended the ball and the play ended up being a touchback for the Packers.

Trubisky's biggest play of the day came in the fourth quarter when he hit Josh Bellamy in stride down the left side for a 46-yard touchdown to get the Bears within 16-13. The Green Bay defense really was a difference maker in this one, and they might have saved the Packers season with their effort on Sunday.

The Detroit Lions are early three-point favorites for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Running back Benny Cunningham took a screen pass down to the two-yard line on a 23-yard catch and run. It would have given the Packers a 10-point lead and left nothing to chance.

Both offenses stalled as the Packers failed to convert third and short situations and the Chicago offense couldn't protect rookie Mitchell Trubisky. The Packers threw the ball 38 times and only ran it 17.

For the first time since 2008, his Bears were favorites against a struggling Green Bay team that's not won since Rodgers exited the lineup with a broken collarbone. Well, the experts were right on that low-scoring prediction, up until the fourth quarter, when this game got really interesting.

Cunningham said he thought it was a TD at first, but he agreed with the call after watching the replay. "Just trying to compete and make a play for the team". An official review conducted at National Football League headquarters determined that like Fox thought, Cunningham hadn't stepped out of bounds. It was the longest run of the season for Green Bay and sparked memories of Ty's breakout game at running back previous year in Chicago. Chicago technically won the challenge and was not charged a timeout, yet came away with nothing to show for it.

Now, find me someone who really thinks this team can magically go 6-1 and somehow have a shot at the playoffs. Chicago lost its second consecutive game and fell to 2-3 at home. "Which creates a touchback".

"We had an injury to Aaron Rodgers, and nobody has stepped up", McCarthy said Tuesday. Running backs are taught to not try and push the ball over the goal line unless its fourth down because of the exact issue that the Bears faced on Sunday.

Add in the bad challenge, and this has the feel of another Green Bay game that turns the tide against a coach on the figurative ropes. "It most definitely played a big part in today's game".

At this point in the season, they're simply playing for pride.

"We're trying to weather the storm until 12 gets back", linebacker Clay Matthews said. The Bears punted on every drive Perry or Daniels produced a sack. That is the formula this new Packers offense has to follow.

"I don't think our snap location was ideal, but I think I should make that catch 100 percent of the time", Vogel said.
