Packers finally step up, rally around QB Brett Hundley

That means Brett Hundley is on the spot, at least for now. A lot of things would be better if Aaron Rodgers was on the field.

The Packers announced after Green Bay's 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears that Hundley hurt his hamstring during the victory.

The Bears, who are favored to beat the Packers for the first time in almost a decade, won't have to deal with Aaron Rodgers or Morgan Burnett in the game, and they'll be looking to inch closer to the.500 mark if they can secure a victory.

It was easily Williams' best performance to date.

In the fourth quarter, Hundley stepped into a pair of big plays that helped shut the door on the Bears' comeback chances. First Hundley was able to roll out and hit Adams for a 19 yard touchdown that put Green Bay in front by ten.

Fox technically won the challenge, but the Bears missed out on the potential seven points that proved to be the difference in the game. His deep ball spiraled softly into the hands of Adams, who was pushed out of bounds after a 42-yard gain. However, on Friday, Bennett was practicing on the field with the Patriots, which ESPN's Mike Reiss noted is a reflection of passing his physical with the Patriots.

"I would say that there's still a good number of games to play", Hicks said. "He's a heck of a playmaker". "He made the plays that he had to make". That's the good news for those who love cheese and football played in the cold. After establishing some early momentum, the Packers slowed down for much of the game allowing the Bears to creep back to within three, before Hundley found Davante Adams for a great touchdown.

The Baltimore Ravens need a win here after losing five of their last seven games to get back to a.500 record. His quarterback rating was 58.3.


The Bears came out of their bye even more banged up than they were going into New Orleans two weeks ago, with a reshuffled offensive line with Cody Whitehair at right guard, Hroniss Grasu at center and Kyle Long in a baseball cap on the sideline.

As a result of the injury, Jones has been listed as questionable to return on Sunday afternoon against the arch rival Chicago Bears. The offense was the main culprit, committing two penalties on its first possession of the game and three more on its second drive.

On the ground, Jamaal Williams rushed for 67 yards in 20 carries while Ty Montgomery added 54 yards and a touchdown in six attempts.

Another running back potentially in line for an opportunity is fellow rookie Devante Mays. He showed off his mobility with a 17-yard scamper on third-and-2 that set up the Adams touchdown pass. I f-- it up playing for the Packers.

There were flaws, too.

Overall it was a huge win and it keeps the Packers on the playoff fringe. "We have to ride the wave". "We were locked in, ready to go, but I guess we weren't just focused at that moment". If anything, Sunday was a step in the right direction.

That seemed like a long shot after Week 9, but Hundley's flawless fourth quarter and the veteran accuracy he displayed connecting with Adams suggest it might not be such a bad bet after all.
