Eberflus’ Packers Debut: After a win in his coaching debut, Matt Eberflus’ next big test was his debut in the Bears-Packers rivalry. Despite taking an early 7-3 lead in the first quarter, Eberflus’ team could never capture another lead making him 0-1 against Green Bay to start.
Bears Run Defense: Chicago once again struggled to stop the run, where Aaron Jones feasted on the ground. Jones had 132 yards on 15 carries (8.8 average) and a touchdown. It’s the second straight week that the Bears have given up more than 176 yards on the ground, which is certainly concerning moving forward.
Justin Fields’ Play: Fields completed just 47.1% of his passes against the 49ers. In order to beat the Packers, he would need to improve that tremendously. He did complete 63.6% of his passes, but he only had 70 passing yards (on 11 pass attempts) along with an interception late in the fourth quarter.
Running The Ball: The Bears ran the ball better on Sunday, with their lone touchdown coming on the ground from Fields. Along with that, David Montgomery had 15 carries for 122 rushing yards – a great way to rebound after having just 26 rushing yards last week.
