The Green Bay Packers got off to a slow start but notched their first win of the season as quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-25 passes for 234 yards with two touchdowns. Rodgers made two big-time throws without a turnover-worthy play in his 23rd career win over the Chicago Bears.

Offensive spotlight: Packers running back Aaron Jones ripped through the Bears’ defense for 132 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries plus three catches on three targets for 38 yards with another touchdown. Jones forced nine missed tackles on the ground and picked up 85 yards after contact. The Packers showed a willingness to use Jones and A.J. Dillon on the field at the same time for 10 snaps. That makes sense since the two running backs are certainly among Green Bay’s top five skill-position players.

Defensive spotlight: Bears edge defender Trevis Gipson sacked Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers twice and registered four total pressures. Packers edge defender Preston Smith brought pressure on five plays, including two sacks on Bears quarterback Justin Fields.

Rookie spotlight: Bears rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon struggled in coverage. The 2022 second-round pick let up 10 catches on 13 targets for 162 yards with one touchdown. He did force one incompletion on the night.

Offensive line spotlight: The Bears’ offensive line struggled to protect Fields, letting up 10 total pressures. Fields was sacked three times.
