Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers started their season by heading to Minnesota to play the vikings. The Vikings were able to get an early 7-0. It looked like the packers were going to strike right back. The Packers rookie receiver Christain Watson beat his corner deep down the field. Unfortunately Watson dropped the deep pass from Aaron Rodgers, which more than likely would have tied the game. About midway through the second quarter, game still 7-0 Vikings, the Packers drove down the field all the way to the one yard line. The one yard line is where the packers drive stopped though, on fourth and goal the packers gave the ball to AJ Dillon who was stopped short of the endzone. The Vikings went into halftime up 17-0. The Packers only scored once in their season opener, the score was a two yard touchdown run from AJ Dillon. Green Bay ended up losing 23-7 in a game that felt a lot like the Packers season opener last season. Last season the Packers started the season 0-1 after a tough loss to the Saints which had the final score of 38-3 in favor of the Saints.
The Chicago Bears started their season by welcoming the San Francisco 49ers to Soldier Field. It was a rainy day in the windy city, to say the rain played a factor would be an understatement. The Bears offense was held silent in the first half, but the defense only allowed the 49ers to get 7 points. At halftime the 49ers held the lead at 7-0. With a little over 5 minutes left in the third, the score now 10-0, the Bears offense was finally able to strike. Justin Fields rolled out of the pockets hitting Dante Pettis for a 51 yard touchdown. The bears would score two more touchdowns to win the game 19-10.
