John Fox got his first taste of beating the Packers on Thursday.

Safe to say, he liked it. A video emerged of the Bears coach dancing with players, which he laughed off Monday by saying that “sometimes winning can be exciting.” He saw a benefit, too, in the Bears winning their NFC North game.

“I’m aware of the fact that it’s a rivalry game—I know in this building for sure, and I think probably outside of this building I think it is, too,” Fox said after practice at Halas Hall. “We hadn’t won a division game. … It’s a good start as we trek back through the division.”

The Bears are now 1-3 in the division with two games to play — against the Vikings and Lions.
