The Packers defeated the Chicago Bears 10-3 Thursday night kicking off the NFL’s 100th season with a win.
The low scoring affair was reminiscent of the Packers and Bears games of old, where defense reigned supreme.
The Bears struck first as newly signed kicker Eddy Pineiro nailed a 38 yard attempt in the first quarter, putting Chicago up 3-0 early.
After amassing negative yards in total offense in the first quarter, Aaron Rodgers finally got them on track driving down the field to find Jimmy Graham in the endzone from eight yards out for the games first touchdown.
The scoring would once again go cold as the defenses took over until the fourth quarter when Mason Crosby split the uprights from 39 yards out to make it a seven point game.
The Bears would go on to mount a drive that looked like it would tie the game and force Rodgers to have some late game magic. However, the former Bear’s safety Adrian Amos would intercept Mitch Trubisky in the back of the endzone to essentially seal the Packers win.
The now 1-0 Packers will head back home to Lambeau take to host another NFC North divisional foe, the Minnesota Vikings. While the Bears will go on the road to face their former Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and his Denver Broncos
