Packers finally step up, rally around QB Brett Hundley

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -Rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns, leading San Francisco to a victory over NY, its first win under first-year head coach Kyle Shanahan after a 0-9 start. Now he'll have to do it against a better team than the 3-6 Bears to prove he's for real.

Finally, the Packers got a win without Aaron Rodgers.

A 23-16 victor over the Bears and a big game, almost a must win for them. The first was a 19-yard touchdown that came late in the down, a situation where Hundley, despite his mobility, had not previously thrived. After just 4 sacks in the last 5 games, the Packers had 5 today against Bears rookie Mitch Trubisky.

His work in the fourth quarter allowed for one final play: A kneel down, the ideal conclusion to the Packers' first win with Hundley under center.

Hundley also converted a pair of third downs with completions on the first drive of the third quarter, setting up a field goal.

Not so much. Fox won his challenge all right, and lost the ball. His 42-yard catch on third-and-10 brought the game to the two minute warning, and really iced it for Green Bay. On third-and-13 from the 25, Mitchell Trubisky passed to Bennie Cunningham on a screen play, and the fifth-year running back cut outside before making a lunging try for the end zone on a cold, rainy day at Soldier Field. A more ideal ratio is what was called against the Bears.

Fox challenged the play, and the head official ruled that Cunningham fumbled the ball out of the back of the end zone, giving the ball back to the Packers. And there were so many reasons that made sense.

"That was the first thing I said as soon as I caught it". While he completed the bulk of his passes, a risk-averse game plan limited Hundley to just 86 passing yards in the first half. It helped that the Packers were also able to move the ball on the ground, rushing for 160 yards. The Packers scored on three of their first four drives in the second half and should have scored a fourth time after Hundley went deep to Adams on 3rd-and-10 to start the fifth series.

"They made some plays", Fuller said.

"It seems uncharacteristic for us", said Trubisky, who threw for a career-high 297 yards and a touchdown. "We got a good thing going and we going to continue to build off of this". The Packers gave Nick Perry a $60 million dollar contract last March because he has the talent to take over games just like this. "It's nothing they were doing schematically".

The Bears are improving, and with wide receiver Cameron Meredith returning next year from ACL surgery their offense should be more productive next year. Trubisky targeted Inman eight times, and Inman came away with six receptions for 88 yards.
