Trubisky doubtful for Bears' Thanksgiving game

Trubisky doubtful for Bears' Thanksgiving game

But that second turnover-induced momentum swing never came, and a multi-takeaway game might be just what's required of the Packers on Sunday night in Minneapolis.

"So, I know Chase inside out and he knows me. That might be the real factor".

Getting back to the reason the Bears went for two after both of their touchdowns against the Vikings-they were successful both times by the way-he said: "There was a plan behind it".


It is the fourth time since 2010 that Green Bay will play at Minnesota in November, with the Packers winning the previous three (2010, 2014, 2015).

Nagy called the Bears' decision to sit Trubisky, who suffered a right shoulder injury late against the Vikings on Sunday night, a "collaboration". "It's definitely something we have to get back to". I don't know of many other differences. Of the past 32 regular-season meetings between the teams, 21 of those games have been decided by seven points or less, including a tie in the first meeting this season in Week 2. He's talented. Plays with a great swagger.

"So, it's a positive to be flexed into a night game like we were last week, but now we have to make sure that we handle our business". If you're an aggressive person and you like going for two or you feel good about the plays that you have in there, then why not? If they are going to beat the Vikings in the rematch, the Packers need to finish drives with touchdowns rather than settle for field goals. Against the Saints, Adam Thielen's red zone fumble proved costly, as was the pick-six Cousins threw because of a miscommunication with Stefon Diggs. But look again at those numbers in Minnesota's three home losses over the last two seasons. Cousins had to play from behind the entire time in each of those games. The two-time MVP has registered 19 touchdowns and just one interception in 10 games. "A few more (good days), and I'll be out there". "There are just more things we can do with Anthony that allow us to be a little bit more versatile I guess is the best way to say it". The scrutiny he has faced for underachieving in these marquee matchups comes with merit, but all the blame can't be pinned on him.


Despite having the highest graded performance of week 11, Rodgers acknowledged that he needs to improve in certain areas of his game in order for the Packers offense to get off of the ground.and finally start running.

The Packers (4-5-1) are 0-5 on the road this season. It dips to 27 percent with a loss.

The game that ended with a 23-16 Chicago win was also up 11% from the comparable game window a year ago (Minnesota-Detroit on Fox). Their playoff hopes depend on it.
