Chicago Bears Lose NFC North Title to the Green Bay Packers in a Dramatic Finish

Chicago Bears Lose NFC North Title to the Green Bay Packers in a Dramatic FinishChicago Bears absorb heartbreaking loss to Green Bay Packers.

Every loss is painful, but the loss that the Chicago Bears experienced yesterday in the Soldier Field Arena was sour as well. The Bears who were hosting the Green Bay Packers for a game on the NFC North title, saw the Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers last minute 48-yard touchdown pass to Randal Cobb, who set the final score 33-28. The wide receiver was in the right place at the right time when the returning Rodgers spotted him wide-open, ready to fix a one-point deficit in the last 38 seconds. Both Cobb and Rodgers returned to the Packers after long absences due to injuries.

The Chicago Bears lost not only the NFC North title, but also a playoff berth. Another aspect contributing to the big letdown at the end of the game, was the fact that the Bears opened the game with a blitz: By the end of the fourth quarter the home team was leading 28-20 but as momentum changed rapidly the Chicago Bears lost the game. The Packers will host the San Francisco 49ers next weekend in the wild-card round, while the Bears will travel to Philadelphia to meet the Eagles.
