Brett Hundley threw for 212 yards and a touchdown to collect his first NFL win and secure a much needed victory for Green Bay. The Packers snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Chicago Bears 23-16 at Soldier Field on Sunday.
Hundley threw a 17-yard touchdown to Davante Adams to give the Packers a 23-13 lead with 5:29 left to play and the Packers (5-4) held on for the win, beating the Bears (3-6) for the eighth time in the last nine games.
The win was the first for the Packers since they last beat Dallas back on October 8. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone against the Vikings one week later and the Packers have been winless until Sunday.
Hundley completed 18 of 25 passes and Ty Montgomery ran for a 37-yard touchdown in the second quarter. But the Packers ended up losing both Montgomery (ribs) and starting tailback Aaron Jones (knee) to injury. Jamaal Williams came in to rush for 67 yards on 20 carries and the Packers totaled 160 yards on 37 carries. [Read more…]
