Turnovers Plague Bears On Prime Time

Mike Glennon and the Bears offense turn the ball over four times in Green Bay.

GREEN BAY, WI - In just five days the Chicago Bears looked like two completely different teams.

On Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers the Bears played tough on defense, and ran the ball effectively. Four days later in Green Bay they looked the complete opposite in their 35-14 loss.

It started early on Thursday night. On Green Bay's opening drive Aaron Rodgers and the offense marched right the down the field on 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive to put the pressure on Chicago early.

Aaron Rodgers played like Aaron Rodgers at home. He threw four touchdown passes behind a make-shift offensive line that was without starting tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga.

The Bears offense wasn't any better. Mike Glennon got off a bad start, and they could never recover.

On the Bears opening drive Glennon was strip-sacked by Clay Matthews, which the Packers offense turned into another touchdown putting the Bears in an early 14-0 deficit. Glennon fumbled on the next drive as well but the Packers didn't score on that drive.

Glennon also threw two bad interceptions, one in each half. Both throws were either terrible decisions or some sort of miscommunication. Either way the Bears can't afford to continue making those kind mistakes.

"The number one thing I obviously have to fix is the turnovers," Glennon said.

The offense also also struggled to run the football. Chicago ran for 220 yards in their win against Pittsburgh in week 3. But in Green Bay the Bears ran for 103 yards.

"Obviously a very poor performance," said Bears head coach John Fox. "I think it starts at the top. We got outcoached, we got outplayed in every area."

The Bears have 11 days until their Monday night match-up against the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field.

If the Bears want to make a change at quarterback now might be the time for head coach John Fox.

"We need to make a lot of changes. We'll look at everything. We got a lot of work to do here before we line up against Minnesota Monday night."
