Chicago Bears Disappointment No. 2: Chicago Bears Defense

Anytime the big, bad Aaron Rodgers suits up for a Chicago Bears matchup, I’d only be kidding myself if I expected anything less than a whoopin’. As expected, Rodgers had his way with this defense.

It might not have seemed as bad during, but Rodgers picked apart this defense, throwing 29/37 for 341 yards and 4 touchdowns. Not only did he throw four touchdowns, but that was paired with zero interceptions.

It’s tough to beat Rodgers and the Packers on its own; it’s nearly impossible to beat them when Rodgers is putting up those kinds of numbers.

Now, I know Robert Quinn had a nice night with sacks, but his two sacks were his only two tackles of the entire game. I get that beggars can’t be choosers, but when Khalil Mack is out, there needs to be someone that can step up as a pass rusher, as well as a run stopper. Unfortunately for the Bears, their defense hasn’t looked great since losing their superstar pass-rusher.

Not only did Aaron Rodgers have a day, but the two-headed monster in Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon also had quite the day on the ground, as they combined for 119 yards and a touchdown.

The defense of the past took quite a step back, as they allowed a whopping 439 yards of total offense.

It was a tough game for the defense, and to me, they disappointed — even when expectations weren’t sky-high.

Now, for the final disappointment of Week 14…
