Green Bay – The Packers did exactly what they needed on Sunday night and did an impressive job.
Last week rebounded due to heavy losses in overtime work. Green Bay was under a fierce attack from a clear offense and high-level defense at Lambeau Field, burying rival Chicago Bears.
The 41-25 victory marked the Packers’ 100th victory in history and was barely as close as the final score. Most importantly, the Packers completely controlled the NFC North game with a record of 8 to 3. There are three more games for the Bichon and Vikings, with only five games left.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said: “I like our position.”
“I said before the game, I believe that if you want to be a great team, these are the games you have to win.”
Head coach Matt LaFleur’s offensive efficiency was obvious from the beginning, because the mix of running and passing made the Bears close behind. The Packers reached a touchdown the first three times they had the ball and never really looked back.
When guards Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams combined 163 rushing yards, Rogers exceeded 50,000 passing yards with 29 points and 21 in a 211-yard game.
The Chicago guard missed winger Akiem Hicks badly (hamstring injury), and was ranked first in the league in both the third quarter drop and the red zone, but the Packers dominated these areas.
Green Bay converted to 6 of 11 in the case of the third drop (55%) and scored in the red zone of 4 of the 5 zone (80%), which was the only failure.
