Brutal: Packers 24, Bears 23 – September 9, 2018

Chicago Bears

We’ll have more informative breakdowns of the Bears’ opening week loss to the Packers after the sting and incredulity wear off. After what was one of the most shockingly impressive halves of football I’ve seen from the Bears in recent years, they went into a shell in the second half. Mitch Trubisky couldn’t find his receivers, Matt Nagy couldn’t keep leaning on Jordan Howard (for some unknown reason), the line couldn’t get any pressure whatsoever, Kyle Fuller couldn’t catch a gift, and Aaron Rodgers couldn’t make a mistake.

Bears lose. It stings, because that win would have meant a lot. It is always weird and awful to be on the other side of one of these “historic” type comebacks. The joy you see in others is reflected in the pit of your stomach. A sickness you can’t shake for a few days, at least.
