Packers trail Bears, 21-20; Bears on the 5-yard line

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on December 29, 2013 – 5:47 pm

131229-in-game-updates-3a-300CHICAGO–The Bears were on the Packers 5-yard line and held a 21-20 lead when the third quarter ended at Soldier Field on Sunday.

Following a three-and-out to start the second half, the Packers allowed a 49-yard punt return by Devin Hester and the Bears began at the Packers 30-yard line.

Matt Forte found 15 yards up the middle. Forte converted third down with a 3-yard run to the 5. One play later, Forte cut back to his left and strolled into the end zone untouched. The Bears led, 14-13, with 10:46 to play in the third quarter. The drive was 30 yards in five plays.

Eddie Lacy broke loose on a 17-yard run that nearly went the distance. On third-and-1 from the Packers 46, James Starks tore through a huge in the middle of the Bears defense for 41 yards and a first down at the Bears 13. On third-and-four, Aaron Rodgers threw to Randall Cobb for a 7-yard touchdown that put the Packers back into the lead, 20-14, with 7:27 to play in the third quarter.

The Packers’ next kickoff was of the pooch, anti-Hester variety and left the Bears to begin at their 26-yard line. Three plays later, however, Sam Shields was burned by Alson Jeffery for a 67-yard bomb from Jay Cutler. Forte scored from a yard out with 5:04 to play in the third quarter and the Bears were back in the lead, 21-20.

Rodgers rallied back with an 18-yard pass to Jordy Nelson. The Packers were now in their no-huddle offense. An incompletion was challenged by Mike McCarthy, who lost the challenge. That left third-and-10 from the Packers 38. Rodgers threw incomplete and the Packers were forced to punt.

Forte ran for a couple of first downs and across midfield. Then Cutler dumped a pass into the left flat to a wide-0pen Forte, who gained 33 yards to the 8-yard line.

    Once again, the story of the seasons’ collapse is an absolutely terrible defense.

    And here’s the real problem…the offense has to score 30-40 points a game to win. The shortcomings on defense really do need to be addressed, and I mean an honest-to-God solution. At this point, i’m not sure if it’s down to coaching, players, or a combination of both, though I am inclined to believe it’s a combination of both. But whatever it is, either way, it needs to be fixed. And not talked about. The rest of the league remarked about how soft our defense was during this past offseason, and our players became incensed…but in honesty, it was right on the mark. Our defense IS soft. No two ways about it.

    Can’t fire me, it’s not my fault, those puss-y players can’t tackle and cover.

    The only thing the D is good at is chewing up clock for the offense. This is getting old! Just pull the defense and let them score so they don’t chew up time and maybe the offense can keep it close and win it with a field goal.

    its not coaching, its players that dont want to get hurt, including raji, burnett, and md jennings just stinks, also tramon sucks too.

    Not a lot of time on the clock. :) The defense can’t allow a 5 play drive, however.
