Packers Beat Bears, First Win Without Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers get their first win without Aaron Rodgers, snapping a three-game losing streak with a 23-16 victory on a rainy Sunday in Chicago.

Brett Hundley passed for 212 yards and a touchdown while one of his hamstrings tightened up – and in the first half, the Packers lost running backs Aaron Jones to a knee injury and Ty Montgomery to a second rib injury this year. The eventual game winning score came on a 17 yard T-D pass from Hundley to Davante Adams with five and a half minutes left as Green Bay has now won eight of its last nine against Chicago. Adams had five catches for 90 yards while Packers rookie running back Jamaal Williams had 20 carries for 67 yards, and Montgomery ran for 54 yards and a score before he left. The Packer defense sacked Bears’ rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky five times – three by Nick Perry – but Trubisky still threw for a season high 297 yards and a T-D, and the Bears were held to 55 yards rushing while being outgained in total yards 342-323.
