Well, That Sucked
Out-passed them, out-rushed them, controlled the clock.
And it came down the four interceptions ESPN predicted would be game breakers.
- Aaron Rodgers brought the Packers back late in the fourth quarter, heaving a 50-yard touchdown pass to Greg Jennings with 1:11 remaining to give Green Bay a 21-15 victory over the Chicago Bears in the season opener Sunday night.
Facing third-and-1 at the 50-yard line, Rodgers faked play action and heaved a rainbow of a throw deep to Jennings, who ran in for the go-ahead score. Rodgers found Jennings again for a 2-point conversion.
Rodgers finished 17 of 28 for 184 yards for the Packers, and his big throw ruined the debut of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who had a career-worst four interceptions.
Ninety-one seconds from victory. So is this an incident of shared blame? Offense not scoring enough due to four interceptions and Defense not stopping the big play when it mattered? Hopefully, it's all just a hiccup and first game jitters.
