Bears safety Chris Harris called Sunday's performance "a big for us."
"Nobody had us picked to win," he said. "We kind of like it that way. We were eight or nine point underdogs. To go down, on the road, I think that showed a lot of character, and showing what kind of team we have."
Some players downplay the negativity, but Harris said he doesn't.
"We have - I wouldn't say our backs against the wall - but kind of everybody is out against us. Nobody is picking us to win. We like it like that," he said. "That's fine with us, 'cause in the locker room, we're all we have anyway. So we don't let outside forces - outside voices - dictate how we play."
Harris said his wife even told him all the analysts who picked the Bears to lose.
"So that was kind of impressive to me," he said.
Here is Harris on a few other topics:
* On playing physical as a defense: "The thing we want to do is, when guys come across the middle, we just want to make sure they know they're going to get hit. 'We're going to punish you for catching the ball, if you catch it .so that's kind of the mentality we want to have. That's one thing that coach Rod Marinelli is bringing back here, that whole Monsters of the Midway thing. So we're buying into it. We just want to send a message that, if you come across the middle, you're going to get hit."
* On his role (worth noting that rookie Major Wright, who was rotating with Harris suffered a hamstring injury Sunday): "That situation, it kind of is what it is. Major is a very good safety, a young safety, and they drafted him for a reason in the third round. And they definitely want to get him in the game. There's no experience (better) than the game experience... While I was out there, I just wanted to make plays, just do my job, and I hope I've been doing that the last two weeks, and hopefully continue to do that."
* On the Green Bay Packers offense: "We love the challenge. They're 2-0. They played great last week, against Buffalo, so we know we're going to have our hands full. They throw the ball, so we have to make sure we're on our keys and doing everything we're supposed to do."
