He said it: The Packers (1-1) pulled off a perfectly executed trick play, then rattled and robbed Jay Cutler the rest of the way in a 23-10 victory over the division rival Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.
“Inside the facility, there wasn’t any panic,” Aaron Rodgers said. “Outside, I think people were worried if we lose to Chicago, you’re kind of putting yourself behind the eight ball a little bit. Good win for us. We’re 1-1. Again, it’s one game. We need to get better on offence; defence played incredible.”
The win represented an impressive rebound from a season-opening loss to San Francisco. Had the Packers lost to the Bears, they would have fallen to 0-2, with both losses coming at home.
