Week 15 Postgame: Bears 24, Packers 17 (Press Conferences, Locker Room Celebration)
Looking back at that opening season loss to the Green Bay Packers, that might’ve been the best thing to happen to this Matt Nagy-led Chicago Bears team. In hindsight, it helped the Bears focus in on what they needed to do to close out games and what they wanted to accomplish.
And it paid off on Sunday as the Bears beat the Packers 24-17 — their first home win against Green Bay in 8 years — to win the NFC North championship in front of the home crowd at Soldier Field.
Mitch Trubisky outplayed Aaron Rodgers completing 20-for-28 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns for a 120.4 passer rating.
Trubisky, who was coming off one of his worst games of his career against the Rams, was focused on stacking completions, getting the ball to his playmakers, and taking care of the football. Which is exactly what he did.
“That was just my mindset this whole game,” said Trubisky. “Don’t do anything crazy. Don’t try to make a splash. Just completions after completions, and it resulted in first downs, and it helped create a rhythm within the offense that helped all day.”
