Here’s all you need to know about the start of Thursday night’s Bears-Packers game: The Bears had zero yards of total offense in the first quarter. And yet the Packers weren’t able to turn that pathetic offensive display into a first-quarter lead.
Green Bay finally got on the board early in the second quarter with a Mason Crosby 48-yard field goal.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been sacked three times and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been sacked twice, and this looks more like an old-school Bears-Packers game from the George Halas/Curly Lambeau days than a 21st Century NFL game.
The Packers surely wouldn’t have been happy if they had been told in advance that they’d have just three points midway through the second quarter. But in this game, three points is enough to give the Packers the lead.
