27. Chicago Bears
It appears the Chicago Bears really took exception to some of the comments made by Aaron Rodgers. When the Packers beat them in Chicago earlier this year, he let some fans know that he “owns” the Bears. And then when pressed on it ahead of their re-match on Sunday Night Football, he pretty much doubled-down.
Rather than showing any remorse, Rodgers said the “record speaks for itself.” He did acknowledge that one day it will come back to bite him, and at first, it looked like that day was coming in Week 14.
Chicago was playing with a ton of emotion as they jumped out to a 10-0 lead and then were up 24-14. But emotion can only take you so far.
Eventually, the cerebral Rodgers and his offensive teammates started to get rolling. Davante Adams scored just before the half and Aaron Jones had a touchdown run and reception in the third quarter. That made it 38-27 Green Bay heading into the final 15 minutes.
It ended up being the ninth loss of the season for Chicago as they continue to fall off the rails. At this point, it feels like a matter of time before they officially move on from head coach Matt Nagy, who is having a year to forget.
