THREE MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
1. Trailing 10-3 midway through the second quarter, Mitch Trubisky connected with running back Benny Cunningham on a pass out of the backfield. Cunningham turned up the right sideline and dove for the pylon. Officials ruled him down short of the end zone, but John Fox challenged the play. After review, officials determined not only did Cunningham fail to reach the end zone, he actually fumbled before the football hit the pylon, resulting in a touchback.
2. With Bears fans growing restless early in the fourth quarter, Trubisky finally came through with a big play. With wide receiver Josh Bellamy working down the left side, Trubisky lofted a perfectly placed pass to Bellamy for the 46-yard touchdown. The score got the Bears within 16-13 with 10:45 remaining.
3. The Packers put the game away with a 19-yard touchdown from Brett Hundley to Davante Adams with 5:29 remaining, but the real blow actually came two plays earlier. Facing 3rd-and-2 at the Bears' 37-yard line, Hundley scanned the field and was forced to pull the down. Bears linebacker Pernell McPhee had an opportunity for a sack – or at least to come up with a stop shy of the first down – but Hundley broke contain and picked up 17 yards.
