The Chicago Bears fell to the Green Bay Packers 35-14. The key statistics was the turnover differential

The Green Bay Packers pulled off almost the exact definition of a wire-to-wire victory over the Chicago Bears. The team got the ball to start the game and immediately went down the field and turned the drive into seven points.

From there, the Bears completely collapsed, mainly behind the leadership of Mike Glennon. Glennon turned the ball over four times himself, and the Bears lost the turnover battle four to nothing.

On the Bears first offensive snap of the game Glennon was strip sacked that led to a touchdown. He was intercepted twice, both leading to touchdowns. He also bounced a ball off of his knee, resulting in a lost fumble. Fortunately, the Bears were able to force a punt from one of the turnovers. When you add in a touchdown coming off of a missed field goal, four of the Packers five touchdowns came directly following a Bears miscue.

Discrediting the first drive, the drive that the Packers had scripted and practiced, the only touchdowns allowed came from these game changing mistakes. At some point the finger has to be pointed at Glennon by this coaching staff. He is directly making the defense a worse unit by how much he is holding the team back.

Next: Danny Trevathan could be suspended

The Bears have 11 days to decide whether or not Mitchell Trubisky will start next week, you know, the sensible thing to do given what has been displayed over the first four weeks. However, knowing Fox he will stick behind Glennon who will undoubtedly start next Monday.
