The Green Bay Packers defense was dominant in the team’s victory over Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had no time to find open receivers and when he did find time to let a ball fly, it was likely to get intercepted. It was an impressive bounce back win for the Packers who are now back on the right track after a disappointing loss in week one.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews led the way for the Green Bay defense with three and a half sacks while Jerel Worthy, DJ Smith and Mike Daniels tallied one a piece. Erik Walden was rung up for one sack.

Cutler led the Bears offense to zero yards in the first quarter and never got things rolling. He was sacked seven times and tossed four interceptions. Cutler finished the game 11-for-27 with 126 yards, a touchdown and the previously mentioned for interceptions.

For the Packers, the defensive output should be encouraging as they move forward this season.

Aaron Rodgers said earlier in the week that he was not concerned about the week one loss to the 49ers and the Packers showed everyone why tonight. It was a total team effort and they once again appeared to be one of the NFC’s elite teams.

Chicago, on the other hand, looks like they still have a lot of work to do.
