Three key takeaways from the Bears’ season opener against the Packers:
• Floyd feeling the flow. Leonard Floyd probably wishes he could play the Packers every day. The outside linebacker had two sacks, bringing his career totals against the Bears’ rivals to 7 ½ sacks, 10 quarterback hits and seven tackles for loss. Against the rest of the NFL, Floyd has 10 sacks, 24 quarterback hits and 18 tackles for loss.
• RRH. Short of Khalil Mack, no Bears defender looked sharper than defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris, who recorded a first-half sack and should have been credited with at least half of Akiem Hicks’. While most of the Bears’ starters sat out every meaningful preseason snap, Robertson-Harris appeared in 69 defensive plays.
• CD at RB. The Bears used receiver Cordarrelle Patterson at running back — a position he played at times for the Patriots last year — on a significant play. It failed. On third-and-1 at the Packers’ 39 in the second quarter, Patterson lined up behind Trubisky, took a handoff, and lost two yards. The Bears punted.
