1st-and-10: Bears better brace for the best of Tom Brady

Bears coach Matt Nagy says, ‘We need to score more’; but how?

The Bears’ offense has plunged below where it was the last two seasons and ranks near the bottom of the NFL in most categories. Nagy knows it needs to be fixed, but it’s not clear he has the answers in his fourth season.

Aaron Rodgers says, loudly, what we’ve known all along: He owns the Bears

It’s impossible to argue with him on this point. The Packers’ win gave Rodgers a 21-5 career record against the Bears in the regular season.

In one play, Bears and Justin Fields show why they don’t stack up to rival Packers

It was a reminder that Fields is no Rodgers — but also that he’s not Mitch Trubisky, either. The Bears’ previous first-round pick didn’t have that sense of swashbuckling.

Bears vs. Packers — What to Watch 4

The Packers’ Aaron Rodgers-to-Davante Adams connection is one of the toughest to stop in the NFL. Bears second-year cornerback Jaylon Johnson, though, also has playmaking ability.

Sean Desai could be a difference-maker vs. Packers

The first-year defensive coordinator has added some inventive wrinkles that already have put some of the bite back in the Bears’ defense. They’ll need every bit of it against Aaron Rodgers on Sunday.

Filed under:

Bears QB Justin Fields says rivalry with Packers isn’t about him and Aaron Rodgers. But it is.

The Bears’ defense has handled Rodgers reasonably well at times in the last three seasons and still lost. At some point, Fields must help them solve that problem, and Sunday is his first chance to show he’s capable of that.
