Chicago Bears: Week 6 Offensive, Defensive, and Special teams MVPS
By Evan Bruner
The Chicago Bears fell to the Green Bay Packers 24-14 on Sunday and are now 3-3 on the season
The Bears versus Packers rivalry has been of the most storied and competitive in league history, but the series has become one-sided in recent years. That theme continued on Sunday; Aaron Rodgers and the Packers came out of Soldier Field with a victory yet again.
The Bears passing attack was ineffective once again
Despite having Jaire Alexander and Kevin King out of the game, the Bears could not create many chunk plays in the passing game. Justin Fields finished the game with 174 passing yards on 27 attempts. This is the third time he’s been held to under 200 yards passing in Fields’ four starts. It wasn’t just Fields though, many of the Bears’ receivers struggled to get separation on their routes, which is concerning considering the state of Green Bay’s secondary.
Aaron Rodgers came up big in the fourth quarter
Overall, Rodgers had a relatively modest game. He finished with only 195 yards, but as Bears fans have seen time and time again, he always delivered when he needed to. Most notably, late in the fourth quarter, when the Bears cut the lead to 17-14, the Packers marched right down the field, capped off by an Aaron Rodgers rushing touchdown. It was a sight that has become all too familiar for Bears fans, and it serves as a reminder of how much work needs to be done for the Bears to get to the top of the NFC North.
