Packers top Bears for first win without Rodgers

Detroit Lions running back Dwayne Washington runs with the ball as Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House makes a tackle during a game on Monday in Green Bay Wis

Bears coach John Fox: 'I've never worried about my job security'

However before Trubisky took another snap, coach John Fox threw his red challenge flag on the field, asking the refs to take a second look to see if the running back had scored before landing out of bounds. Some posters added the hashtag #FireFox to leave no room for doubt.

Prior to the Green Bay Packers taking on the Chicago Bears inside Soldier Field, many believed that this would be a low-scoring game. Referee Tony Corrente said Cunningham lost control of the ball before it hit the pylon not only nullifying the possible touchdown but it was ruled a fumble into the end zone and the Packers got the ball on a touchback.

On third down and ten, down seven with just over two minutes to play in the game, Hundley hit Davante Adams on a 42-yard pass to move the chains, and give the Bears just over a minute to tie the game. Hundley finished almost six percentage point higher in completion percentage, won the QB rating battle 110.8 to 97.0, and led a game winning drive, something the leader of the Bears was unable to do.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews piled on after the game, saying his defense took advantage of the Bears' obvious weaknesses on offense. Regardless, the Packers proved capable of stepping up for Hundley and doing enough around the quarterback position to win an important football game. The Green Bay defense really was a difference maker in this one, and they might have saved the Packers season with their effort on Sunday.

Perry was a beast on the defensive side of the ball for the Packers on Sunday, racking up three sacks against the rookie Mitchell Trubisky. Cunningham was near the end zone, reached out, and by the officials call, was down at the one-yard line.

Also, it's not like this is the first time the Bears have laid down a clunker against the Green Bay Packers coming out of a bye week.

Not so much. Fox won his challenge all right, and lost the ball. I go down at the 1, next play it's first-and-goal and we hand the ball to Jordan (Howard). "Which creates a touchback".

"I still have to find ways to get better", he said.

"Obviously that's a play that you'd like to have back but that's not how it works", he said. Running backs are taught to not try and push the ball over the goal line unless its fourth down because of the exact issue that the Bears faced on Sunday. In addition to the hope of beating the Packers, fans thought the second half of the season (which has some winnable games) would be better than the rough first-half schedule they went through.
