I’m going to start by saying this: The officiating is consistently ruining your product, NFL.
The Green Bay Packers (5-1) take care of business at Soldier Field and beat their rival the Chicago Bears (3-3) by a final of 24-14.
The combination of the officiating crew today and the FOX broadcast team was … not great.
The officiating was horrendously bad both ways.
For all the crap that Joe Barry has received (and a lot of it deserved), give him credit for the showing of his defense today. The Packers defense was missing numerous key players and Chicago’s offense didn’t really do a whole lot.
When Darnell Savage left the game, the Packers secondary looked a lot like what we saw in preseason.
Kenny Clark was a beast and balled out today for the defense.
Aaron Rodgers didn’t put up big numbers by any means today, but he was productive. He completed 17-of-23 passes for 195 yards and two touchdown passes. Rodgers also ran for a touchdown to put Green Bay up 24-14 with 4:30 remaining.
Rodgers told the Bears fans: “I own you. I still own you,” after he ran it in for a touchdown, and he’s technically not wrong. I’m just curious when his name will be in the Chicago Bears Ring of Honor.
Rodgers postgame said that he blacked out after seeing the lady give him the double bird following the touchdown run.
“Sometimes you black out on the field. I scored, looked up and saw a woman giving me the bird. Don’t remember what I said back.”
Is someone printing “I still own you” t-shirts right now? Might be a profitable thing to do.
Aaron Jones ran for 76 yards on 13 carries (5.8 average) and had four receptions for 34 yards (8.5 average) and a touchdown reception.
A.J. Dillion had 11 carries for 59 yards (5.4 average) and had a couple big first down rushes to seal the deal.
Allen Lazard had three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown reception on a shovel pass.
The Packers will welcome the Washington Redskins (2-4) to Lambeau Field next Sunday, October 24th. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:00 PM (Central Time).
