Lowry Upbeat About Packers Win

CHICAGO - Rockford native Dean Lowry and the Packers have new life after winning at Soldier Field Sunday. It's a win that gives them hope for the remainder of the season.

"It was a big win for us," says Lowry. "I think after Monday's night's loss it was definitely a big opportunity to get a win here at  Soldier Field."

A 5-4 record looks a lot better for Lowry and the Packers than a 4-5 record.  Plus they have the weight of a three-game losing streak off their backs.  Lowry felt the Packers had a good week of practice coming off the Lions loss last Monday.

"It was tough. It was also a short week too, so we had a day off Tuesday. We had a full-padded practice Thursday and a game Sunday. It was definitely a quick week, but I think it's a testament to our leadership after a tough loss Monday we came back and had a great week of practice."

The Packers defense got to Mitch Trubisky for five sacks Sunday, and Lowry was a key piece up front helping to hold the Bears to only 55 total yards of rushing.

"They're a run-first team, the Bears are," says Lowry, "So I think if you can make the Bears one-dimensional like we did today it's tough to beat us because if we can force Trubisky into different third down and throw the long pass situations I think works to our strengths."

Lowry was encouraged by the play of Brett Hundley down the stretch in Sunday's game. Hundley had a key 17 yard run and a 19 yard touchdown pass to Davonte Adams.

"That was great to see! I think with more experience I think he's stepping up. I think we all believe in Brett. Brett has a lot of talent."

Lowry was credited with only one solo tackle Sunday, but he doesn't care about his personal stats. All he cares about is the Packers regaining some momentum and making a push for the playoffs."

"I think we're excited and I think that momentum is back on our side and we're going to keep it going with it."

The Packers host the Ravens this  Sunday.
