An Un”BEAR”ible Game

Johnny Horton, Assistant Creative Director

The oldest rivalry in the NFL between active teams, the Chicago Bears and the Green bay Packers, ended in a Bears’ loss 55-14 Sunday, Nov. 9.

The Bears traveled to Green Bay to play the Packers for the second time this season, hoping to improve on their losing season record. The Bears came off of a bye week trying to improve their record from 3-5 to 4-5, but that was not the case this week. Aaron Rodgers stormed onto the field by bombarding the Bears defense with touchdown pass after touchdown pass. By the end of the game he had 6 touchdown passes.

The Bears defense was not a factor in the game at all for the Packers did not have to punt the ball until the third quarter. On the other hand the Packers’s defense was a huge part of the game only allowing the Bears to score 14 points. Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler game ended with two first-half turnovers, leading to a total of 12 interceptions in Titletown. The Packers’ strong defense and offense, including Rodgers’ franchise-record six touchdowns, contributed the Bears’ loss.

With this meeting, the teams played one another a total of 190 games, including two post-season games. The Bears sit on top with 93 wins, and the Packers with 91 wins. They have tied six times.
