The Bears had three first-half turnovers, with the Packers converting them into 14 points. That was the difference as Green Bay held a 21-7 halftime lead.

Bears quarterback Mike Glennon had all three turnovers, losing two fumbles and throwing an interception. He was 11-for-16 for 125 yards with a touchdown and the interception.

The Packers took an early 14-0 lead. They took the opening kickoff 75 yards in 10 plays with Aaron Rodgers hitting Davante Adams for a 5-yard score. Then, Glennon fumbled on the Bears’ first offensive play on a sack by Clay Matthews. Linebacker Jake Ryan recovered at the Chicago 3, and the Packers scored on a 2-yard pass from Rodgers to Randall Cobb with 8:56 remaining in the first half.

Aaron Jones scored on a 2-yard run with 4:48 left in the second quarter, with the 60-yard drive set up by a Ha Ha Clinton-Dix pick of Glennon.

But the Bears did get on the board before halftime.

After gaining only 71 yards on their first six possessions, the Bears put together a 72-yard touchdown drive at the end of the second quarter. Kendall Wright caught a 5-yard pass from Glennon with 8 seconds left in the half as Glennon went 5-of-6 on the drive.

Rodgers finished the first half 9-of-15 for 119 yards and two touchdowns.

  1. 4th quarter Bears are down 35-7 and John Fox is doing his best Andy Reid impersonation with a 9 minute drive. If he’s just trying to get out of Green Bay without any casualties why are Glennon and Howard still in?

  2. At what point do they start looking at ryan pace. Every year this guy assembles a worse and worse team. There is a high player turnout, but in every time the players we bring in are worse than they ones he got rid of.

    Jefferies> better than any receiver on the team BY FAR.
    Gould> better than any kicker we have had since.
    Cutler>than any qb on this team BY FAR.

    The defense is total trash and we go into a VERY GOOD defensive draft. We trade our picks for a project qb, then get a project TE and out of our entire draft we get a 4’th round safety for the a trash defense.

    Ryan pace worst GM since Matt Millen.
