Bears Lose to Packers for the Second Time


The Chicago Bears have lost to the Green Bay Packers again. This time they lost 23-16 at home on Sunday. The Bears have now lost two in a row. This was the third start for Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley, who was 0-2 in his first two starts after he replaced Aaron Rodgers, who is out with a broken collarbone.

John Fox, the head coach of the Bears, cost Chicago a crucial scoring opportunity due to a challenge in the second quarter. This was the biggest coaching mistake of Week 10. He threw the challenge flag when he thought that running back Benny Cunningham scored a touchdown. He was originally ruled out of bounds at the 2-yard line, but he extended his arms and hit the pylon. After the play was reviewed, it was ruled that Cunningham lost possession of the ball before crossing the pylon, meaning it was a fumble out of the end zone. It was ruled a touchback and it was Packers ball at the 20-yard line.

This might be the beginning of the end for John Fox, who could not beat the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers at home. Fans are gonna want Fox and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains to be fired after coming off a bye week, having two weeks to prepare for their opponent, and looking very sloppy and undisciplined in this game. There were a lot of penalties against Chicago.
