In looking at how proficient the Packers were with their aerial attack, it would have been easy to assume that their ground game would have little impact. Unfortunately for the Bears, that was not the case. Led by Eddie Lacy, who had 14 carries for 50 yards, the Packers accumulated 132 rushing yards.
Normally, when the Bears give up a chunk of yards through the air, they hold their opponents’ ground game in check. But on a day where just about everything went wrong, that was not the case against the Packers.
