The Chicago Bears played the Green Bay Packers for the 205th time on Sunday. This game started with what looked like a continuation of week one for both teams. But then things unraveled for Chicago while Green Bay's offense lit up. Justin Fields did everything he could to mount a comeback but fell short in multiple areas.

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Recap

First Half

The first half was not in favor of the Chicago Bears. Their first drive was a beautifully constructed series of plays capped off by a Justin Fields rushing touchdown. At that point, the Bears led Green Bay 7-3.

But the joy didn't last long. As the Bears' offense put up consecutive three-and-out drives, the Packers opened up the scoring.

Aaron Jones rushed for a touchdown while catching a short pass from Aaron Rodgers for a second score. Allen Lazard also scored for Green Bay and the Packers led the Bears 24-7 at halftime.

It Wasn't All Bad

The Bears' offense actually completed a flea-flicker pass to Equanimeous St. Brown. It was a refreshing surprise and something Bears fans haven't seen succeed for the blue and orange.

In spite of the stalls, the offense continued to work off their success in week one, and Justin Fields led by example with this touchdown run.

Chicago's defense got to Aaron Rodgers three times. Trevis Gipson made his name well-known, securing two sacks himself. Robert Quinn also got in on the action with an athletic move around a blocker.

Second Half

The Chicago Bears finally caught a break. Defensive tackle, Mike Pennel, jumped on a loose ball, securing the Bears' first takeaway of the day. 

The offense drove down and Cairo Santos hit a 44-yard field goal to cut the Packers' lead to 14 points.

Later the Bears' offense drove down the field to the goal line using nothing but big runs from both David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. Then, at the goal line, the Packers' defense stopped Justin Fields just short of the end zone and the Bears turned the ball over on downs.

On the next drive, the Packers were able to capitalize with a Mason Crosby field goal. They led the Bears 27-10.

When the Bears got the ball back, Justin Fields threw an interception to Jaire Alexander. The Packers' offense took over and ran out the clock.

The Chicago Bears fell to the Green Bay Packers by a final score of 27-10. Justin Fields finished the night completing seven of his eleven passes for 70 yards and one interception. He also had 20 rushing yards and one touchdown. 

David Montgomery took 15 carries for 122 yards and Khalil Herbert finished the night with four carries for 38 yards. Equanimeous St. Brown led the Chicago Bears' receivers with two catches for 39 yards. Darnell Mooney had another quiet showing with only one catch for negative yards.

The Bears desperately need to be balanced on offense if they want to have a chance at any victories this season. With a 1-1 record, the Chicago Bears return to Soldier Field in week three to host the Houston Texans.
