Defense rebounds after rocky stretch

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears defense has played poorly in three of the past four games, so it was important for the unit to play well against the high-octane Packers, which they did.

Aaron Rodgers completed 19 of 28 passes for 229 yards with one touchdown. Rodgers was also his team's leading rusher with seven carries for 21 yards.

"The last couple of weeks, teams have been scoring a lot of points on us, so defensively it was important for the Packers to only get 10 points," linebacker Lance Briggs said. "We were effective and we did the things we needed to do. We were very disciplined. That's really what it comes down to against a high-powered offense."
