The Chicago Bears’ involvement in the NFL kickoff game Thursday against the Green Bay Packers didn’t end well. The Bears didn’t manage much offense for the majority of the game, but down 10-3 in the fourth quarter, they had a chance to tie it up. They drove the ball all the way to the Green Bay 16, but on third down, quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s pass was picked off by Packers’ safety Adrian Amos, who played for Chicago from 2015- 2018 before signing with Green Bay as a free agent this offseason. Here’s the pick:
The Bears did wind up getting one more chance after this thanks to the Packers’ inability to get a first down, but that ended with Trubisky getting sacked near his own goal line on fourth and eight by Green Bay linebacker Preston Smith. That gave the Packers a 10-3 road win.
Overall, Trubisky completed 26 of 45 passes (57.8 percent) for 228 yards with no touchdowns and this one interception. He’ll need to be better than that if the Bears hope to do much this year.
