The Chicago Bears suffered another frustrating loss to the Green Bay Packers. Here is the good, the bad, and the ugly from the game.

Tell me if you’ve heard this before — the Chicago Bears dealt with another frustrating chapter in their rivalry with the hated Green Bay Packers. They lost their sixth straight game to Green Bay. In the past 10 seasons, they lost 17 of their 20 games against them. If we go further back, it’ll be even uglier.

At this point, using the term “rivalry” doesn’t fit the description.

What made this game more frustrating is that the Bears had their best point output of the season. Despite averaging 16.8 points per game heading into the game, they scored an amazing 27 points in the first half, including 24 in the second quarter alone. They led the game 27-21 at halftime.

Then the second half started and the Packers continued to score while the Bears reverted back to the struggling offense they’ve had all season long. Green Bay scored 17 more points in the third quarter while the Bears didn’t even register a first down until there was 4:06 left in the fourth quarter. The Packers scored seven points in the fourth and the game ended with a Packers 45-30 victory.

The Packers again showed that they could make adjustments mid-game and the Bears showed that they couldn’t. The first half was great to watch as both teams went toe-to-toe scoring points. At halftime, however, the Packers saw what they needed to stop the Bears and they did just that.

Let’s take a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from the Chicago Bears’ loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 14.
