At Soldier Field, the Chicago Bears had a golden opportunity to seize division profit against perennial rival Green Bay Packers. Before that, it still had to be settled with “final boss” Aaron Rodgers. That assignment seemed to go smoothly for three quarters, although the fourth quarter was still a bit tense. However, Rodgers was unable to complete his drives and was caught by Eddie Jackson at a crucial moment in the endzone. It was the first! Interception against Rodgers this season.
Another drive ended in a field goal, but the onside kick was nowhere for the Packers. The Bears kept their lead thanks to the defense, but Mitchell Trubisky also contributed. The sophomore quarterback stayed clear, leading his team 20/28 for 235 yards and two touchdowns to the 24-17 win. Yet there is only one name that circulates in Chicago: Khalil Mack.
The Bears are 10-4 and can even hope for a top-two finish in the NFC. This, if the Saints or the Rams make another mistake. For the Packers, a loss at Soldier Field is a painful end to the season.
