Packers top Bears for first win with Brett Hundley

The Bears failed to overcome several self-inflicted wounds Sunday in a disappointing 23-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Finally, for the first time in a month, players stepped up and rallied around Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley, who repaid his teammates on Sunday in Chicago by delivering two impact plays with the game still in the balance in the fourth quarter. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 23 points and 353.6 yards per game. "You could hear the pads popping out there when he was getting low". The Packers offensive line absorbed another hit when tackle Brian Buluga suffered a season-ending torn ACL. Sunday marked the first time the Bears have lost to a Packers quarterback not named Favre or Rodgers since Don Majkowski in 1989.

"I thought Jamaal Williams played excellent". Sunday proved the Packers are capable of putting together a team effort around their quarterback.

"You're always talking about discipline, particularly emotional discipline at the end of the whistle", he added. And frankly the opportunity being taken away from him with Aaron stepping in there, his hunger never changed. When he got in there yesterday, he cut it loose.

Jones, a fifth-round pick from Texas-El Paso, emerged after Montgomery (ribs) and Williams (knee) went down with injuries in the first Packers-Bears meeting, September 28 at Lambeau Field.

When Rodgers was on the field, Bennett caught 21 passes for 202 yards and was targeted 34 times in six games. McCarthy would only say Jones has a "multiple-week" injury.

Montgomery took over for an injured Aaron Jones and immediately delivered, weaving his way through a hole before bursting into the open field and scoring a 37-yard touchdown in the first half. Jordan Howard, who entered ranked fifth in the National Football League with 662 rushing yards, was stopped for minus-1, minus-1 and minus-3 on his first three carries. When he fractured multiple ribs on September 28, Montgomery missed the following week's game at Dallas on October 8 but returned to the lineup October 15 at Minnesota. McCarthy said Montgomery has "a chance" to face Baltimore. "You got to be able to attack them and really get after them". I feel like the defense would be playing if their quarterback was on the field. I was pleased that our guys did a much better was big in the game. "That's a pretty standard reminder when you get to Saturday night". Packers veterans, for what it's worth, have come out in defense of their doctors.

Randall Cobb caught 3-of-4 targets for 52 yards in the Packers' Week 10 win over the Bears.

"It speaks a lot to him and his preparation".

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

And when McCarthy made a decision to go for it on fourth-and-1 near midfield at the end of the third quarter, Williams bulldozed for 4 yards and was a shoestring tackle away from taking it the distance. You force them at times to take a few shots. "However many we don't know, but it hurt our cause". I'm coming at you.
